    how loing will it take?


    I'm about 18% bodyfat right now and i would like to get down to 10%. How many weeks would it take to accomplish this. I want to get down that low and stay low until i start hardcore dieting and training for a show next year.

    It depends, 18% is pretty high. What is your plan thus far and what do you expect? Perhaps I can tell you if its feasilble. Generally, one diets for a show between 12-16 weeks. Your going to have several phases before your ready to be at that point.

    In 6 weeks I probably dropped 2-3% bodyfat. Check out my log about getting a 6-pack

    DW prolly held more muscle than you.

    Id rather diet slow than diet hard, unless it is for a show.
    Show diets are not meant to bring you down from higher BF%
    Its very stressful on the body.

    People like to think there is a time frame for dieting but theres not. The hardcore dieting starts about 16-less weeks out like DW most commonly.

    You dont just eat bulk till then though, that whole way youre supposed to be adjusting protein, carbs and fats. Along with training, if you training sucks youll lose muscle or not look good.

    thats pretty much the only way my body responds is by doing it hardcore.
