Not sure if this is the right forum, but here goes.
I'm about 33% BF currently and would like to get down to around 15-17%. My current diet is around 1800 calories/day. I want to increase lean mass also. What would be a good starter approach ?
Are there any supplements I should consider at this point, any specific workout plans I should try out ?
The easiest thing to do IMO is download myfitnesspal app on your phone and scan in the foods you eat for like a week, and then subtract like 300-500 calories a day.
As far as programming it really depends on training level, what your exact goals are, injuries, time you have to dedicate.
Supplements...well they only help a little IMO. That's not a bad thing though. Something with appetite suppression would be good(ie dexaprine, alphamine, etc).
I would start with the diet, then training, then supplements or fat loss. It will take time, but it can happen if you really go for it. Just takes time.
A lot of people will say that they love milk, but not many will admit that they are "in love" with milk.
Also, I had my test checked about 6-7 months ago, twice, about 8 weeks apart. Came back at 219 and 243.
I saw a doc when I had those tests ran, doc said it was low, but within the acceptable range. So, no further action was needed.
I just started the calorie count about 3 weeks ago. I try to keep track of everything I eat now, which is mostly skinless chicken breast, various varieties of "steamers" vege packs, tilapia, protein shakes, post work out,from the gym(lifetime fitness). According to the app that I use for keeping track, my ratios have been around 40/30/30 with a 5% shift somedays to 35/25 on the carbs/fats.
I'd suggest 5/3/1 with limited accessory. Maybe even BBB and spend the bulk if your time conditioning. Hills, prowler, rope, hell just take the dog out for an hour a couple times a week.
5/3/1 would be a very good starting program. A good diet will be the best thing to help with the weight loss. Also if you want an extra something to help with recovery Finaflex BCAA+SAA would be a great choice. Also PX Black or Pro Xanthine 500-XT would help keep the appetite in check as well as giving you some extra energy throughout the day and before the gym.
