  1. 26lbs shed in 2 months - before and after pics


    Although I didn’t hit my goal, I am surprised I got as close as I did. I set a retarded goal to drive myself as hard as I could, and I am extremely pleased with the results. I am amazed at what can be done in 2 months. I have learned much about weight training, fat storage and burning, and most of all, nutrition. This has been a fitness epiphany for me. I always thought to get lean and stay lean you had to be willing to do hours and hours of cardio per week, every week, forever. Now I see clearly that this is not so. To shed fat quickly you have to do cardio, there’s no way around it. But to stay lean once you get there is mainly diet. Eating the right foods, in the right quantities, and at the right times, combined with weight training is all that is needed to stay lean. Diet and timing is 80% of the equation, and weight training 20%.


    Since I’ve started this fat-loss cycle, I have learned to conquer impulsive eating, and it’s a very, very powerful feeling. I no longer impulsively eat. Eating is mechanical now. Do I still enjoy good food? Sure I do, but I am in charge now. If the food doesn’t serve a specific function that I am consciously aware of, you can pretty much bet it will not find its way into my mouth. I just don’t care. Hunger has never been an issue. I never get hungry. My problem has always been impulsive eating. The satisfaction I get from having abs is far greater than the satisfaction I get by eating a bag of salt and vinegar chips (mmmmmmmm…salt and vinegar chips). And that, in a nutshell, is the decision I make to control what I eat. “Do I want abs, or do I want this Twinkie?? It’s a simple question. Abs or Twinkie? Do I want to look like a god, or eat this plate of nachos? For me, the choice is clear.

  17. Nothing short of amazing.
  18. Thumbs up


    Nice that's a kick ass change there budy!!!!

  19. Wow.

    You should send the before/afters to stacker 2, etc (all the ****ty commercial weight-loss supps) and claim you used their products and give them permission to use your pic for $$

  20. Wow thats great work bro...congrats on the progress.

  21. Wow!!!! Congrads, and good for you

  22. WOW, that is amazing !!! Congratulations and keep it up !

  23. Thanks everyone for the responses.

    Sorry i have not been back to reply but for some weird reason i didn't get any emails so i didn't think anyone replied.

    It's been one week since the end of that cutting cycle and I am maintaining LBM and BF. I am planning to start a clean bulk at the end of next week. I am ramping up my calories every day until then.

  24. question.....

    how the hell did you manage to stay alive through the times when you were at 1500 cals or less/day?

    ha ha ha i get that question asked a lot over at bb.com boards

    I read an article 2 days ago that says we need to eat 1200 calories per day to stay alive! ha ha ha what a crock of crap!

    the answer to your question is a wonderful invention....fat

    Even at this level of fat i still have about 15lbs of juicy fat to fuel my activities. Not that i could burn all of it before i died, but if i burned 10lbs of it that would equal 35000 calories...about enough for 29 days @ 1200 per day.

    fat...you gotta love it

  26. That is a great transformation, especially because it seems you have kept all muscle if not added some in the process. Studying pays off in many aspects of life, huh?

  27. very very nice guy. definitely some work put in cardio and diet. you deserve the praise you've been getting on this thread.

    thanks mods!

    I'm already up to 2800-3000 calories and starting my bulk routine. As of now i weigh 176 (gained 4lbs from creatine) and my fat is the same.

    Stay tuned for round 2...Romac's bulk

  29. Congrats man! you really did a hell of a job in two months!

    34 years old
    5'10"
    completely sedentary for 2 years, and have not lifted a weight in over 8 years
    198lbs june 1st @ 20%bf
    172lbs july 31st @ 10% bf

    The aftermath...

    I am now up to 183lbs and all my skinfolds have stayed the same, which puts me at 183lbs @ 9% bf (I have tracked creatine water/glycogen weight and believe that 4lbs of my new gains are from that)...i am about 3 weeks into my first bulk and am eating about 3500 calories per day (BARF!) And i have yet to take any anabolics other than food
