    I hear you, bud! It can be challenging to get certain supplements outside the USA at a decent expense. I live in Germany and it is even tougher than in the UK. Does not help you, I know, but life can be raw sometimes! Wish you tonnes of luck and success at it!

    depends where you are starting from -

    someone who is 30%+ bf should easily be able to lose more than 2%bf in a month.

    but someone who is 9% bf would struggle to lose 1% in a month.

    May not be a bad move. The lead time alone between ordering and delivery, ignoring hassles at Customs, may be worth relocating to the USA . Not to mention the emotional stress involved in mentally tracking the parcel through Customs!!!

    I have personally gone from around 18% to 6% in 14 weeks. I have seen my partner go from 12% to 4% in around 12 weeks. So In know that it's over 2%. My partner could have gone down faster but both of us were trying to spare muscle for contest. Incidently there was no supplement use for weight loss by either one of us. God knows what's possible with supplementation.

    That sounds dramatic, right? Usually when you leave the double-digit BF% zone, further cuts get more and more difficult. How did you achieve those results?

    Lipo suction

    That's true, once you hit the single digit BF zone, 1% at a time seems to be the trend. That would be quit a feat. You'd have to measure all your meals with scales and rulers.

    Just perfect diet and a lot of cardio on my part. My partner did absolutely no cardio. He is an endo. This is not uncommon for contest dieting I am surprised you find it so astounding.

    I didn't really find it that much harder once I dropped below 10%. My partner has no problem at all but he is an inferno. Incidently he came 3rd in his class at the Natural world championships. Should have gotten 2nd but you know how that goes.

    One thing that most of you know is you dont' dramatically drop your calories you eat very high protein. Almost all my carbs were from fibrous sources. I started my cut at 2700 cals finished at around 2400-2500. I was never hungry as I was always eating vegtables, grazing if you will. Cutting that fast I lost quite a bit of muscle. My partner not very much muscle loss really cutting is just easy for him.

    I believe we were measuring the possibilities of such BF decrease by the standards of the non-competitor lifestyle, but for competition purposes, it makes sense. Kudos

    oh yah, precontest diets are brutal, takes all the enjoyment out of life. Something about being half naked in front of a thousand people tends to motivate though. You won't see my doing it now, I know how but want to enjoy my life too.

    Lost about 6-7% on DNP 400mg/day + Var + A metric ton of varied antioxidants, 2 gals of water daily, and (of course) about 1700 cals a day. Don't do it...

    Have to agree. Sounds somewhat hazardous!

    yes, I agree that it has a TON to do with your baseline! the leaner you are the more difficult the task of dropping your BF %.

    In one year I went from over 30% to around 10% without any supps (except I was taking protien)...just nutrition and training. was easy at first and became more and more difficult the lower I got.

    That is quite a significant achievement. Most people will be satisfied with 10% BF and just concentrate on staying there. Good job!

    30 to 10!!! Wow, you went from bonified, borderline obesity to a beach body. That's awesome.

    My biggest accomplishment was going from 225lbs down to 168lbs in around 6-8 months, running, literally up to 25 miles a week. Needless to say I went from large mammal to simply a skinny guy, but wow, 30 to 10, good job man!

    Volcom, that's awesome!

    shoot, that's basically what I did! I went from 230 to 164 (I'm only 5'10")...got to the point where I was doing cardio multiple times a day for 30 to 40 minutes each time...probably close to 45 miles a week, plus a ton of weight training!

    been bulking for a while now and I'm up to about 190 at 14%. my ultimate goal is 185 @ 8% (need to swap about 10 pounds of fat for 10 pounds of muscle and I'm golden)...then I just need to figure out how to maintain:-D

    Thats what I was doing also. I was running 8.8 miles/ 4 times a week and two, 9-10 mile sessions on the weekends. I had people drop me off at work and the only way I could get home is if I jogged, so it forced me to do it. I started off with walking home 8.8 miles with a backpack full of books, then after about 3 months, I told myself I could run this route and that was that. However, I did lose a ton, I mean a ton of strength. But that was years ago.

    185lbs@8% is a clean look. I'm looking for 200-205lbs at 12% for me. I was 197lbs last summer, and I made my way up to 230lbs but Feb '08. Now I'm cutting down again, currently around 223-225lbs. I can hang on to my strength no prob, and as long as I diet right, and not become a cardio nazi which I tend to do the leaner I get, I should be able to hang on to the muscle. Good luck and keep it up.

    someone who is 30%+ bf should easily be able to lose more than 2%bf in a month.

    but someone who is 9% bf would struggle to lose 1% in a month.

    I agree! I always seem to lose muscle along with fat once I get to about 12%. I can stay at 12% to 13% with out too much effort and still eat crap with my kids on the weekends. I do Krav and MMA training so I have plenty of high intensity type of workouts. The last couple of times I have tried to get below 10% I ended up getting sick and losing 5-10 lbs of muscle which is a complete PITA.

    My answer to the question would be 1% - 2% in a month if I don't want to lose any muscle and maintain all of my strength. I think the best approach is not to focus on how fast but to just try and have steady BF loss while maintaining muscle. It just takes me too long to put the muscle on as I get older.

    Now if I lived in Europe like some of the others I would not be too worried about the supps. When most of you can get things like Var it should be easy to have solid BF reduction. I have not done this but from others I have read or talked to Var paired with diet seems to make becoming very lean a much more simple process.

    Yes recomping is a fairly new idea (to me anyway). It is better to lose slow and preserve muscle. As long as you don't have a deadline. From a competition standpoint you need to bulk at and maintain at where your more efficient and then cut from there. These cuts are deadline based so you're sort of stuck. Now that I don't compete anymore and I'm an endo I just stay in constant recomp. It's much more enjoyable to keep your strenghth while you lose.
