    This. So many people fail thinking they can.

    My recommendation, based on working with a personal trainer/nutritionist, and personally seeing the results that you are looking for:

    1. Get a body fat scale. Start measuring yourself after your morning shower every day and noting the results. (Even if the scale is wrong, it should somewhat accurately show you decreases and increases over time.)

    2. Start cooking ALL of your food. You will no longer eat out, because you can no longer eat dirty food.

    3. Adjust your diet to be as follows (that is, 100% clean):

    A. Remove all salt, fat, sugar, and alcohol. I can explain each of these in more detail if needed. None of this is negotiable. We are going to be causing a long chain reaction in your body, and compromising ANY of the above will negate it.

    B. Proteins allowed: chicken breast, tuna or white fish, and egg whites. No beef, pork, or salmon because the are too fatty.

    C. Carbs allowed: only complex like oatmeal, plain rice, or potatoes.

    D. Vegetables NOT allowed: tomatoes because they are too sugary, and celery because it is too salty.

    E. You will eat 5x per day, three hours apart, with each meal containing a carefully measured mixture of protein, carbs, and vegetables. You must buy a food scale.

    I estimate a .1% to .2% decrease in body fat each week, and with proper weight training you will see an increase in lean muscle mass, effectively recomping you over a period of months.

    Example diet:

    Breakfast, eaten as soon as possible after you wake up to avoid catabolism: 16oz egg whites and 1 cup of oatmeal. Add cinnamon, stevia, and either peanut powder (clean) or maple flavoring to taste. Cook until desired thickness. You will learn to love this.

    2nd meal: 4oz chicken breast, 1.5 cups cooked rice, and 3/4 cup broccoli. Season chicken as you like (cleanly). I like thyme, bay, rosemary, garlic, and onion. I batch cook a week's worth of this in two slow cookers each weekend, splitting it up into tupperware/gladware plastic containers and fill up most of my fridge.

    3rd meal: 9oz cleaned tuna (rinsed in water to remove sodium) on two slices of low sodium ezekiel bread with lettuce. Add whatever seasoning you like. Onion powder, garlic powder, black and red pepper. Absolutely NO mayonnaise.

    4th meal: repeat chicken/rice/broccoli, or make something else up.

    5th meal: last meal before bed, cannot contain carbs. 4oz chicken breast and 3/4 cup broccoli.

    Let me know if you need further info, and good luck.

    While I admire your zeal here, I draw umbrage with a lot of the things you said.

    1. Remove all salt, fat, and sugar, and this is non-negotiable? So you want him to tank his electrolyte, hormone, and blood sugar levels all in one fell swoop?

    2. No beef, pork, or salmon because they are too fatty? They make lean cuts of pork and beef, and salmon is a good option to include for the omegas. As long as he's accounting for overall macros, he's fine.

    3. Tomatoes aren't that sugary and celery isn't too salty to pose a problem - not even close.

    4. He doesn't have to stick to 5 meals a day, 3 hours apart. This is outdated advice and the only time it really matters as far as nutrient timing goes is around the workout window. Other than that, just hit your numbers and you're fine.

    I'm with you on having a structured diet and tracking everything, but some of what you said just takes things too far.

  4. Unless you're prepping for a bodybuilding show your diet doesn't need to be this insane. Even this was more intense then my diet to 5%.

    I would keep beef in your diet, 85-15 burgers and top round steak. Are fine IMO.

    I'm assuming Reds meant your body fat will go down 1% to 2% a week. Not .1-.2% because that slow, **** I'd just kill myself.

    Food scale sure. Body fat Measurements sure but those scales are ****. Grab calipers and learn to measure your self or just measure your waist with a fabric tape measure.

    This is so much dangerous nonsense that I don't even know where to start, so I'll start here: A no-fat diet? Do you have any idea what that does to hormone, especially testosterone levels? I'll give you a hint: they go way, way, way down. Like to pre-pubescent girl levels. No, I'm not joking.

    A no-salt diet? Umm, hyponatremia will kill you in about 2-4 weeks if you're doing any amount of sweating on a regular basis.

    Everything else is still way off, but I felt the need to address the especially dangerous suggestions.

  6. Yep, don't go 0-salt. This leads to cramps, dizziness and blood pressure problems.

  7. No fat, no salt, no beef, no sugar, no salmon, no cereal, no donuts.

    I'd rather be fat.

    Just as another heads up, OP, one thing that may be of interest/help to you, too, would be looking into an introductory to nutrition science course (or at least the literature for one).

    I took that course a few years back when I was looking at an additional master's degree in a different field; going in a different direction to pursue an MS in Nutrition. Anyway, that one course wasn't difficult, but was very eye-opening. I knew a lot of it, but the science part of it I didn't at the time. In hindsight it all feels like common sense, but only because I've since learned it.

    Anyway, it was one of the most helpful things I've done in the ~15 years I've been training.

  9. Your macros have to be on point. High protein moderate carbs and fats. You can't target one area. You need to focus on burning bodyfat not just losing weight
