Need to lose weight! HELP!
Ok, I'm going on vacation in September. Which gives me about 4 months to lose the 25-30 lbs I've put on over the last year. I'm 5'8" 205-207 depending on the day. I'd say I have 20-22% body fat. My diet is an issue at the moment. All I want to do is eat, not clean either. I'm working on getting ready mentally for the cut, but I'd like some advice on what I should take to give me and edge of sorts.
My PH/PS history is pretty shallow. I've done a MMV2(methyl masterdrol) and an M-drol cycle. I know, huge jump. But now I'm looking to take something a little less harsh for this cut. Possibly H-drol, P-plex or havoc/spawn..whatever.
I've been lifting heavy(heavy for me) the past 4 months or so and I'm looking to change that up a bit, higher reps lower weight. I don't have a lot of time for cardio, and if I did it would cut into my weight training. as of now I lift 5 days a week. One part per day, unless I throw biceps in somewhere, it's tough to find time for them.
Anyway, any thoughts would be appreciated. Questions welcome!!!!

how long do u typically workout per day?

3 days a week I squeeze my workout into 40-45 minutes, on my lunch break. On my days off I workout anywhere from an hour to hour and a half. I'll usually do chest and tri's on my days off to hit them really hard.

I am looking to stack a tren product with this to help me as well.. and what do you guys think of clenbuterol?

I think we need to see your exact diet before you go adding compounds to the mix.

and if your looking to loose weight more cardio and just run thats your best bet but throw our diet up there that could change everything. Dont just assume you need to go straight to a tren product or any thing of such changing a few everyday things around could do help you out just as much man

I've dieted pretty strict before however I've never actually composed a diet on paper. When I went strict before I would normally eat 2 eggs, a piece of bacon and a slice of dry whole wheat toast for breakfast. A tuna salad sandwich on whole wheat for lunch, and extremely low carb for dinner, usually a boneless skinless chicken breast with a veggie, most of the time canned green beans. I would supplement my protein with fat free low carb whey protein(I use All the whey, tastes good and not that expensive). Two 2 scoop shakes a day usually between meals.
I know I can lose weight by cleaning my diet up and doing more cardio, however to force myself to stick to the diet I need to take something that I know works to help me have the mental edge. Hopefully that makes sense to someone.

im going to give u my diet when i am cutting, this works tremendously for me, maybe itll help you.
6 eggs- 4 whites and 2 full eggs, mixed with green and red peppers and onion
1 bowl of steel cut irish oatmeal
cup of hot green tea- no sugar or milk
around 10 am
blueberry and strawberry fruit salad
1 chicken breast in a mixed green salad with basalmic vinegar dressing
(salad contains lettuce, green peppers, tomatoes and carrots)
1-2 chicken or turkey breasts
1 cup of raw broccoli
small mixed green salad with balsamic vinegar dressing
around 830- post workout
protein shake mixed with skim milk
1 can of tuna, mixed with garlic and onion powder and 1/2tbsp. of low fat mayo.
for working out, i go to the gym everyday. i lift weights monday-friday and usually do 15-20mins of cardio with it. on saturday and sunday, i do an hour of cardio.

I definitely like the looks of your diet, and can see why it would work. I don't eat near as much while cutting, can that potentially slow my weight loss? I've always heard "you need to eat to lose weight" but if I'm not hungry while dieting I feel like I'm cheating.
Oh and another reason I want to take something while cutting is to retain my muscle mass. I don't necessarily want to take something that is going to make me lose weight but retain my muscle mass while dieting.

That diet looks good but for my metabolism i would have to cut all those quantities down to about 60% that to lose weight.
I've been eating 2500-3000 and maintaining. Just that breakfast would fill me up pretty hard.

Son not trying to flame you here or anything but it seems to me like your looking for the easy way out. If your looking to lose weight to cut, you have to diet and get your cardio sessions in... plain and simple. If you can do those two things, you'll achieve better results than any synthetic chemical can offer you. Secondly, you gotta face the facts. Whenever you cut, your going to lose muscle theres no way around it. I think some creatine mono and bcaa's would deff help you out in this case but I cant agree with you wanting to take a tren based ph.

Ok no PH/PS! I got it! thanks! lol. Can someone give me some tips on how to fit cardio into the limited gym time I have? Like I said in my first post, I work out 5 days a week. 3 of the 5 days are on my lunch break so I only have 45ish minutes to work out. On my days off(2/5) I can put more time(1h30m) in. I work overnights and my gym isn't open 24 hours on the weekends so there isn't a way I could workout more than 5 days a week. It would be like a normal person waking up in the middle of the night and going to the gym, not exactly practical.

Not sure you may already do this but if you only have 45 min on your lunch breaks do your routines like a circuit. This will keep your hr up and keep your calorie burning up. Just a thought. Not to keep throwing this at you but like everyone else said you MUST clean up the diet and hit the cardio. The hardest part will be the first couple weeks but once you adjust to eating smaller clean meals you will be ok. As far as losing muscle mass on a cut, it's going to happen but just make sure you get enough protein to keep the losses to a minimum.

do your cardio first thing after you wake up....you dont need to be in a gym...go for a walk/run....ride a bike, anything....then lift weight on your lunch break....im sure with a little thought you could arrange your schedule to train....your just making excuses....

Wake up in the morning. drink one cup all black coffee and 1/2 scoop protein powder. do ab workout. about 9 sets, low rest, 25 reps. than run 30 min outside. come home eat breakfast. workout later that evening and run another 30 right when you get done lifting. this will shred you fast all natural. id put my word on it.

Try taking Krealkyn for creatine and some BCAA i prefer pill form for those.

forget lowering the weight. keep the weight high as possible doing 6-12 reps. get the diet strict and throw in a eca or ecy stack n you will be on your way easily...

Gotta find time for that cardio. Cardio with high intensity weight training will have the highest rate of energy expenditure. That's what you want, to use the most amount of calories as possible. Restrict calories and workout by adding more cardio.

First of all, milk...I love the stuff, I used to drink about 1.5 gallons a week(skim). Can I get away with slipping some in this diet, other than a post workout shake?
Second is: Is it ok to eat lunch before the strawberries/blueberries? funny question but still..
Third is: I've been eating green beans as a substitute for the greens in the diet, are they a lateral move? I don't like salads, but if they're that beneficial I'll choke them down.

If you're on a serious cut then I would eliminate all dairy. Save it for the bulk!
06-14-2009, 03:02 PM
Wanna get lean quick?! Take clen, u don't need ph's, you'll drop 10lbs or over depending on your diet and cardio in 2 weeks, and retain your strength or even get stronger...

On the clen.. I don't feel the need to use anything at the moment. I feel super stoked about this diet. I'm ending day 5(going to sleep very soon, i work overnight). I'm 201, which is 4 lbs lower than my flux of 205-207. Just gonna keep the diet strict and keep my eye on the scale.

If your vacation is in September go natural clean cutting until mid/late July. Then throw something in the mix to get the extra fat loss. If you start out using something especially a stim your body builds a tolerance. Come mid-late July when your starting to see some good results the added effect will be much better appreciated. That is my personal favorite way of doing it.
I personally like e/c/a it has worked awesome for me in the past never had a complaint. As for clen I do not have any experience with it as of yet so I can't give you a recommendation or advice.

Oh and stepped on the scale today at 199 on the dot. Still feeling energized, even in tough workouts. The last time I did low carb I remember feeling like I was going to pass out or puke after every set.. Let's hope I keep feeling this way.. lol

Another thought is maybe running a halo/prop cycle. I had pretty damn good results with that last summer and no serious sides.

Minor set back - My gf's dad's b-day was yesterday and he had a bbq. I tried to not go overboard but I'm a pound heavier today. Oh well, I doubled cardio time in my workout today.
