    HELP WITH MY STATS


    male 6'6 295lbs
    body fat mass- 68.2 lbs
    muscle mass 132.7lbs
    dry lean mass 62 lbs
    body fat mass 68.2 lbs
    BMI 34.2
    Body Fat % 23
    basic metabolic rate- 2605

    I dont care how much I weigh, I am just trying to get my BF % to about 8-11%.
    I know I have to do cardio, diet, weights. I have already lost 25lbs. I am just trying to figure out a plan so that I can maximize results instead of just getting stuck at a plateau

    why? if you dont care what you weigh, then just start on a path and use the mirror to decide where to go next. Trying to get so technical with the #s is just recipe for disappointment.

    get lean first. you'll have some ability to add muscle, but its not easy without also adding fat. So get lean, then you can afford to add mass if you want and wont gain as much fat when you are gaining muscle. It has to do with things like amount of aromatase that turns testosterone to estrogen and insulin sensitivity which are higher when your bodyfat is higher.

    How long did it take you to lose 25 pounds aalready? What did you do to accomplish that? Why can't you just keep at it, nothing fancy. You still have about 50-75 pounds to go, so it won't be overnight. Just stay steady

    well, what makes you think you are loosing muscle? Its harder to do than you'd think. post some more details about your diet, and workout related, that will help. basically at your size, so long as you are getting over 150-180g of protein a day, thats probably plenty

    Well, lets try this. for a couple days use fitday.com to track amounts of food too. it might be a pain to measure or weigh, but you need to get a firm handle on amounts too. A HUGE caloric difference in 20g of peanut butter vs 80g. Overall though, it seems like you are eating pretty light, so if this is what you've been eating like to drop the first 25lbs, it may be that its time for a bit of a change to keep things going
