    Time for a Transformation!


    My friend, Lee, who is a personal trainer down here in Tampa bay, Florida decided it would be a good idea to use me as a marketing tool. I'm 6'3" and I just hopped on the scale. 266 lbs - 26.9% bf. Not good, I've definitely been better. College + broke foot + stress,
    Anyhow, We dont know the exact time limit on it yet, but I will definitely be posting pics, weigh ins, measurements, etc.
    I will be use BuyBulkWhey Protein 3 times a day. I have my nutrition guide typed, but not on this computer, so I will edit the post.
    No camera at the time either, so that sucks too. Lee has a camcorder, so we'll use that for now.

    Tomorrow I will be adding all my measurements to the forum. I will post weekly or sometimes more, updates of my progress. I will post my workout routine, what im taking, what im eating, everything. I recently got laid off.. so unemployment + school here I go. Smiley

    Anyhow, I'll post some pictures of me in my better days? lol.

    Well, can't put up pics, oh well. I used to weigh 235. I'm currently 266. So yeah. New (ugly) pics coming soon, and weekly updates of my changes. Strict 1900 calorie diet. 50% protein, 30% carbs 20% fats. Will post soon. Workout routine will vary, but I will try my best to remember.

    1/04/2010 - 266 lbs 26.9% bf (according to my scale - not the most accurate)

    Measurements are as follows. Man these made me feel fat.
    neck- 18"
    shoulders-56"
    chest-50"
    hips-ass-49"
    waist-belly button 47"
    biceps-16.5"
    forearm-13.75'
    thighs-29"
    calf-17"

    My training will be high reps - trying to get to slow twitch fibers to help burn off the fat, then when I feel lean enough and/or Lee, we will begin Strength training/power. Not sure which. Anyway, In an hour or so, i'll be off to do the gym to do some cardio, maybe HIIT :]

    Okay so for yesterday. I did about 1 hour of light cardio around 1pmish. Went home, ate.. came back around 6:30 pm and Did another hour with some hiit in between.
    Did the leg press. 5x25 (10 plates total)
    Then walked around the inside gym track about 10 times. (only about half a mile there)


    Then, 10 o clock pm rolled around, went to my personal trainers gym, and we did MORE HIIT. Kicked my ass. He had me running at 11 mph. Let me tell you, to be 266 and running like a tank like that. Woo. I didn't tired out too easy, I was actually getting cold and light headed. I informed him and went and bought some carbs..LOL. Talking about running on empty.
    Anyway did about 15 min of HIIT. Then did incline press 3x25 (135), 3x25 Butterflies? I think there called., then I started feeling really bad. I felt like i was going to die.. So I relaxed for a bit, then caught up to him a little later and did 1 hand rope pull downs. 3x25 each arm.

    Never again am I doing that much cardio.


    Anyway, me and him were talking. We don't know which would be more beneficial, light weight/more reps for slow twitch fibers + more oxidative. Or Do heavy weight/low reps for more GH release. Which do you think would burn more body fat in the shortest amount of time? (And what would add/subtract from my diet)

    thanks

    I'd recommend not doing HIIT multiple times a day. Once every other day is enough. Do some steady state cardio on the in between days. In terms of your weight training, the rep range isn't really that big of a deal. Diet and cardio will be the big determining factors. The "high reps gets you cut" idea is not true. Stick with 8-12 reps.

    I'll be following your progress.

    second that. you're gonna burn more calories in the same amount of time if you lift heavier.

    plus, no disrespect to your trainer buddy or nutritionist...but your calories are too low to start off. chopping your calories this low right off the bat, you are bound to plateau much faster.

    SO what should a real cardio limit be per day, if you had plenty of time?

    I kinda thought they were too low also? Where would you add in items? Shouldn't I drop the carbs around mid day though?

    carbs: you can either taper off carbs so that you aren't eating them past like 6pm
    or you can carb cycle, where you have a high, a moderate, and low carb day, and you cycle through these days throughout the week.
    also calorie cycling would be beneficial...where you may have a set amount of protein and fats each day, but the calories change based on the amount of carbs you're eating.

    i'm not sure what the showtime diet is...but honestly man.. at 266 if you start out by learning to set up a clean diet and introduce exercise, you will lose weight off the bat.
    after that, then start reducing calories and worrying about carbs.
    it sounds like you got to the point where you let yourself go.
    the first step is making healthy choices in the diet at any proportions you want, and exercising.

    you could start out at 3,000 calories while weight lifting and doing cardio, and when you stop seeing results, drop 100 calories a week.
    but going straight down to 1900 is a mistake...you're killing your Ally= your metabolism. the reason diets don't work is because people fight their metabolism, rather than work with it to achieve results.

    Figure out maintenance calories, which by a quick calculation, i would guess is 3,000, and use weights and cardio to create the deficit. drop 500 calories on resting days.

    i'm at 2400-2500 calories on lifting days and anywhere from 2000-2200 on off days, and I'm losing body fat. and i'm only 190, there is absolutely no reason you need to start off at 1900.

    Ok. So do you atleast agree with the Fat Intake currently and the Protein intake? Carbs are the only thing that seem to be the problem?
    SO what your saying is...
    I could do this.

    Monday: 240 protein, 45 fat (if you agree), and about 400 carbs? 100 g my first four meals? That doesnt seem a bit excessive? Not saying your wrong, just a question. Or would I up my fat intake too? and protein? I'll take your advice, just steer me.

    i would up your fat intake and lower carb intake a little.
    maybe up to 100 grams so fat is roughly 30% of your calorie intake

    feel free to add green vegetables to ANY meal, if you want to count them thats fine, a lot of people don't.

    lol I guess! I don't even like much mayo in my tuna, and my peanut butter sammiches are pretty thin. I'll munch on peanuts prolly.

    So if I ate 3000 calories, and worked out intense daily, I should lose weight, absolutely no questions asked? (All low glycemic carbs, and no carbs after 6pm)?

    240g protein, 260 carbs, 100g fat. <natural peanut butter, lil mayo, and peanuts, and protein shakes)


    OH, and can I take creatine supplements post/pre workout? Does creatine stall fatloss you think? I read an article where it did.. hm..

    no creatine shouldn't stall fat loss...as long as its a creatine mono and its not a sugary nitrotech type deal.

    start out at 3000 and go on with weight training and cardio.
    Don't kill yourself, but work hard.

    You want to get your body the right nutrients throughout the day.
    3000 is just a starting point, like i said, at 266 you should see weight loss from the beginning. When that stalls, drop 100 calories a week.

    You cant just jump off a cliff and go to 1900 cals, and then NOT expect to plateau in about 3-4 weeks...where do you go after that?? drop to 1700? awful idea.

    Okay so I talked to my trainer friend. And he's willing to let me do 8-12 reps. Boy did he make me pay for it today.
    I did like 30 min of cardio earlier in the day. Then at night we went to his gym.
    First he had me squatting, and like powerclean throw a medicine ball in the air (15lb), turn around, squat.. rinserepeat. Very exhausting.
    Then I was like, teach me to do squats! Beleive it or not, never ever touched em.
    I can leg press 1200 lbs on a good day. 0 on squat lol
    So today, did squats.
    135x12
    155x12
    185x12

    stopped there, my ass felt RIPPED lol. MAN did that **** hurt.
    So then we did 4x12 Hamstrings, 4x12 quads, then he was going to try and make me do leg press, but i wasnt having it. I was too scared to lift the weight with my ass +legs being sore. So instead I told him id do lunges. I did about 50-60 with a 35 lb weight.

    My lifts were very intense. And im very sore and havent even went to bed yet! oh god tomorrow /cry.
    Going to up the cardio tomorrow. Doubt I'll be capable of hiit, but do some elliptical.

    Yep yep, I finally got the form down, feels weird like a frog stance or something. I like doing heavy ass weight. And I like hitting muscles for the first time. Especially legs.

    squats and deads are the best weapons as far as exercise for your transformation.

    they get your entire body, plus central nervous system involved, and burn the most calories.

    anyway Today, I txt my trainer and he said off day, he had some **** to do , and ill agree with that, im sore as hell from yesterday. Did 40 min of Elliptical machine today. That is it.
    AND I SLEPT LIKE 12 hours. Could it be the GH? I never sleep more then 6?!~

    no doubt. I love to lift heavy. Its my ****. I feel so like motivated now. Honestly. With you people internet watching me, and eating healthy, and feeling the pain from working out. Its like ooo baby. lol

    Anyhow, little update.

    SO i just woke up, apparently I been sleeping like a baby lately. It's nice, but my whole lower body still hurts. Going to wake up catch up on my meals, and go to the gym around 4pm maybe 5, knock out about an hour or two of the elliptical. god knows I can't run right now..
    check back later.

    The "carb up" would've been more effective earlier in the day, or the day before.

    your body has to break down the food to restore the glycogen, that takes more than a few hours

    Yeah, I know now. I was trying to stick with LOW gi foods too, sure that didnt help the speed. But anyhow, I was curious, what if I was to eat all 250 carbs, complex, in my first 2 meals, and no more for the rest of the day.
    Wouldn't insulin be really low, and increase fat burning?

    insulin overall through the day probably would be.

    pre and post workout are optimal times for carbs, but you might get away by eating them for your first two meals
