This is my very first post eventhough I have been browsing this site for a couple of months. I wanted to show the results of my cut. My orginial goal was that I wanted to add muscle mass while losing fat. I found out quickly that this was very hard to do. Since the my weight was the more important issue to me, I decided I would try to get my weight under control and lose as much fat as possible by cutting.
I started in mid April around 175 pounds. Now I am sitting around 150. (it has been almost exactly 4 months to the date).
My routine consisted of changing my diet (no more chips and cookies) and I started a lifting routine. I was extremely strick with the foods that I ate for the first three months. Now I am more relaxed and cheating much more often as compared to when I started. The only supplement I used was Nitrean.
My long term goal is to add some muscle mass. I am hoping to go on a clean 6 month bulk and not gain a lot of fat. Well I don't want to ramble to much on my first post, so take a look at the pics.
Wow! Seems like you are well on your way!
Good luck on the bulk!
Body Fat: 12%
Zek basically said it all. Very good job mike.
Out of curiostiy, whats your diet and split like?
Complication breeds desperation.

2000 or bust

Nitrean Shakes with olive oil. Salad with lots of chicken (8 oz). More shakes and more salad.
As for my Split I was eating about 2000 - 2200 calories a day give or take a few hundred depending on the day.
My split was 50% protein (thanks nitrean), 25% fat, 25% carbs. Give or take a few %'s here and there.
