    New here

    Hey all,
    I guess I'll just introduce myself.

    I am a 16 year old male that has been lifting weights since i was 13. I started out at the local YMCA, as soon as I was old enough. When I transfered from a prep school to the local public, I started the school lifting program, with free wieghts-basically bench, squat, power clean, dead lift, and military press. Then when I was 14 I joined the only gym in out town other than the Y, which only has machines. The Fountains, is a small family owned business, and that is where my real lifting began. I got the basic run through by one of the local's, do this and that and this, 3 to 4 times weekly. Since then I've developed a diet and schedule, and added a little bit of supplement, under instruction of a girl that works out at the gym, and is a trainer in St. Louis.

    As follows:
    Mondays: bench, incline dbs, decline dbs, 2 pulling exercises for my back, dont know names
    Tuesdays: smith machine squat, calf push ups, quad curls, extensions, i think i'm gonna add lunges
    Wednesdays: db curls, preacher curls, sometimes bar curls, and always cable curls slow with light wieght and 15 reps, and tri's workouts, dont know names and i vary a lot, can't find stuff i like much
    Thursdays: shoulders - arnold press, machine press, barbell chin ups, and db shrugs
    Friday: rest or chest

    Also, 2.75 miles run walk over a period of 43 minutes, mon through fri

    Diet:
    Meal One: 2 egg whites
    Meal Two: protein bar, started with Luna, went to Pure Protein, now on MesoTech, next box will be NitroTech i think
    Meal Three: 5 egg whites, one egg yolk, baked potato, broccoli/califlower
    Meal Four: cup of cottage cheese/yogart
    Meal Five: a chicken breast, salad, usually
    My 6th meal is supposed to be a piece of fruit, but usually dont get it in

    Supplements:
    Creatine, loading right now, have GNC Pro
    Hydroxycut, started it yesterday, 4 pills a day

    Stats:
    last checked: 225 lbs., 23% bf
    started out at: 250ish, a lot more bf
    just short of 6ft, big frame

    Looking to lose more bodyfat, and upsize my muscles.
    I need to get back to my diet, and I was looking for inspiration and found a board in my favorite style, vB, so here I am. Looking forward to a good time and lots of learning on this board.

    Check ya later

    i just did a calorie count, and stuck to that diet 100%, i'm only getting about 1100 calories

    according to some calculator my BMR is 2265 calories

    i am wanting to lose body fat, but should i up my calorie intake?

    Also, does any mod want to be super friendly and move this to Journals, if not i'll just start a new thread over there, but it would be cool if you could

    I would increase your calories to about 2000 and adjust from there, 1100 is way to little. Also cancel the fruit before bed, replace it with a some sort of quality protein source. Eat that peice of fruit with breakfast along with about 6 egg whites instead of 2. Try to count your protein, I'd go for about 210-250g a day spaced at about 2.5-3 hours inbetween doses. Don't load on the creatine, take 5-6g postworkout and thats it. The loading will probably only make you hold more water. Use the money you'll save on creatine to buy some glutamine. I take 20g a day of it although that is on the high side, probably 10g a day in 2 5g doses would be good.
