Weight: 198 lbs
Body Fat: 17% (will measure again this weekend 1/12/2013 or 1/13. Have a Taylor scale though it's not the best but it gives me a relative point of reference)
Macros: 56 fat 284 carb 221 protein (slowly increasing calories because I am losing weight. However, my waist is not getting any smaller! My waist looks normal first thing in the morning but as the day goes, it gets bloated. And that's everyday!!!)
(All meals are weighed or come labled except my family dinner. Prefer frequent meals because it is easier on my stomach and makes me less sleepy)
Morning: Protein shake
Breakfast: Oatmeal with banana
Snack: Cereal bar (to replace with low sodium can tuna and avocado)
Lunch: Fish/Chicken/Beef/Turkey with vegetables
Snack: Protein bar (to replace with ?)
Post workout: Protein shake
Dinner: Whatever is served by the family(but I eat light here because of the non-exact marcos)
Snack: Cottage cheese with banana
Midnight: Protein Shake (sometimes I skip this if I eat more than I should during dinner)
Exercise: (I have an office job so most of my day is pretty sedentary. Squat, bench press, deadlift, and military press are my main ones. Majority is free weight with machine for last exercise.)
Day 1: Shoulder and Legs
Day 2: Chest and Biceps
Day 3: Back and tricepss
Cardio: 20~30 mins post lifting (weekdays) and 30~40 mins (weekends). Either stairmaster or stepmaster because they make me sweat.
Each workout lasts about 1 and 1/2 hours.
I have kept my fat intake low because I want to slim my waist down but I am not sure if this will work or not. What do you guys think or suggest? Thank you!
