bf % should be 15%-ish with a solid base before a cycle, the risks should have been somewhat obvious given the sides of any steroid cycle:
raised blood pressure: heavier/fatter people have higher blood pressure.
skewed lipid profile: again, heavier/fatter have worse lipids in general
estrogen sides: again fatter people tend to have more estrogen already, so they are more prone to gyno.
lbm lean body mass

Thanks for saving my life guys!
So mad at myself for letting myself get this big.
Like I said, I'm just learning. I look pretty sexy at 18% bf, so I can't imagine 10% :POriginally Posted by Roniboney
At 270 your probly more like 24%
Puts picks so we can better judge
Google how to measure body fat with calipers. Then go to (a major supplement store near you) and by some calipers. Have a friend measure you out and you will know roughly what your bf% are. Pics can be deceiving
Your diet must ne absolute sh*t to be that fat. You could lose the weight by eating right. Juice ain't magic, lrn2diet.
Post some pics, it's entirely possible (while highly unlikely) that you are genetically predisposed to carry a larger amount of lean body mass than we all realize. nobody can advise you on the best course of action if we can't see any pics. On a side note, have you had a blood tests done to see just what levels you are actually at? This is a first and foremost to a cycle at your age and body weight. Forget speculation from everyone and get a blood panel done. You can then weigh your options and decide for yourself what suits you best. Only you can make that decision.
Start counting your calories and you'll lose fat. Maintain a daily deficit. That's all it takes for your situation. Eating "clean" isn't gonna do it. Track your calories daily and maintain a 500 to 1000 calorie daily deficit. I like to use the MyFitnessPal mobile app and a food scale.
Even if you're juicing or doing cardio everyday, without strict regulation of your nutrition and calories, you won't lose fat.
OP lose some of the weight first and re-evaluate from there.You may not need drugs you may like the way you look at a leaner bodyweight
I appreciate the feedback, even though I have received some negative feedback. Sometimes it's necessary to hear the truth, no matter how painful it can be.
I was 23% bf at 217 lbs if that means anything. Assuming I hold onto the muscle I have now, what bf% would I be at 200lbs?
If those numbers are accurate, you would be roughly 16.5% bf @200lbs. On the assumption you held muscle mass with your current weight of 270lbs, you would be around 39-40% bf bro. Do as everyone else suggests and mind your calories. If you have a smart phone, find a calorie counter on it and use it to keep track of everything you eat. It should give you you RDI of calories and track your macro nutrients.
[QUOTE=ohaithere;3246814]well, my RDI is around 2600 calories, and I assume you mean like 40 carbs/40 protein/ 20 fat?[/QUOTE So how many calories do you ingest in a day if you should only be taking in 2600? If that is what you take in and your not losing weight, you def need to have your thyroid checked bro
