Just joined the forum today and am very impressed at the knowledge of the users on here. Little history on myself leading to the knowledge I'm looking for. Started working out at 19 Bc basically I was fat. 200lbs at 5"10 at about 30%bf. once I started seeing results, like every other DA kid, I tried gear. Didn't know a thing about dieting, ( still a bit confused), etc. long story short, stopped working out for about two years Bc of personal problems.
Well I've been back in it now for about 6 months and remember why I started in the first place. I love it! But on too my problems that I need advice on.
1) diet: I work offshore and I'm kinda at the cooks mercy on what we have to eat. I try to eat at least 6 times a day. Well, 3 meals are basically protein shakes Bc of work. I could stand too loose some body fat for sure in my core area but would like to keep my size in my upper body. Basically I'm worried about cutting Bc I don't want to be small, but don't want to bulk and it get out of hand with bf%. Is there any kind of diet that's a in between kinda deal where I could cut some fat but keep building muscle in the same process?
2) supplements: with so much being out there, it's hard to choose and determine which supps are legit and which are crap. I would like to do this naturally at first and find out what my bodies natural potential is before even thinking about AAS again. So many proteins, vitamins, amino acids, pro hormones, fat burners, etc etc, it's hard for someone just coming in to this world to know what works best and what is bunk so any light that could be shed on this subject would be greatly appreciated.
I pretty much have my routines planned out. I keep a log on an app I have and switch it up every four weeks. I just can't seem to get everything else down to a science to get the final result I'm looking for. All the talk about esters, glycogenes, etc just blows my mind. A good straight forward, this is what you need to understand, this is what you need to do answer can ho a long way with me!My goal is to be about 185 at 8-10%bf. so any info you guys can shed on this dark tunnel I'm traveling down would be greatly appreciated!
