I was 200 lbs this past July 28. As of today, August 23, I am 190 lbs, meaning I lost 10 lbs in a little less than a month.
The following is my diet plan:
1. Basketball 3 days a week: Wednesdays and Fridays I shoot-around, do dribble drills, and run the court for 1 hour; Saturdays I play 4-on-4 for 3 to 4 hours. That's a total of about 6 hours a week.
2. I take Leviathan Re-loaded and Hydroxycut Hardcore, alternating between them each week. I alternate because HH works much better for me in suppressing my appetite and as a thermogenic, but the side effects are harsh (diarrhea, headaches and dehydration).
3. I eat the same as I did before, but stopped drinking cola, and stopped eating after 7:30 p.m.
That's it. That's my diet. I honestly can't believe I lost 10 lbs doing only that, especially seeing as I was 220 lbs 1 year ago. Those first 20 lbs I lost without dieting at all, just playing a little b-ball here and there, so it took me 1 year. But in total I am 30 lbs skinnier than a year ago.
Thing is, I know there will come a time when my weight loss will taper off, and I will really have to start a strict diet, or double my exercise output, and what I need help with is in identifying that plateau.
Can I lose 10 more lbs doing what I am doing before it gets harder? 20 more lbs? Or should I already start doing more? What do you guys (and gals) recommend?
