Maybe this will help motivate or inspire someone to do what I did.
I started off at 185lbs slowly moved down from 2800 calories to 2300 and eventually ending at 1800 as I lost weight. I ate 40% carbs 40% protein and 20% fats. Meals every 2 and a half hours. Cheat meals like a subway veggie delight and diet pepsi once a week. I took fish oil capsules, a multi, and zinc.
I didn't do any manipulation of weight or volume during the 12 total weeks so I probably could have improved on my routine.
and 20 minutes of moderate intensity cardio every day of the week.
I kept an online journal with pictures of my progress at the website you see in the pictures. Ending weight was 150lbs. I'm 5'9".

Gj man ...your cheat meals though haha, not a cheat to me. You have very good self control!
wow nice job. This is what I was planning on doing. Im about right where you started off at too.
good work bro.... time to pack on sum hardcore muscle now
AMAZING job man.
Great job and gives me something to look forward to. I started out with your stats as well, 5'10" and 190lbs. Currently down to 160lbs and I can start to see the abs poking through.
Thanks for all the positive comments guys.
yeah I feel like my journey's just begun, now that I've got diet mastered I gotta focus on training.
Very nice transformation. I wish I had your will when it came to the diet.
Great work and dedication.
KUDOS!!! Job well done sir.
Great job. A simple plan: Eat less, get after it 5 days a week. Kudos.
Good work! Keep up the dedication.
Very impressive results and nice to see that you were able to diet without a myriad of fat burners/PHs/supps that most people (myself included) tend to use to limit the use of will power.
Good job man!
Crazy... So you're telling me, that to drop weight and put on muscle, the secret is to exercise regularly and eat properly? Who would have thunk it???
I actually went through a similar journey about 5 years ago using the same 'secrets' with no supps, etc.
GREAT WORK, actually pretty amazing. I am 47 years old with a lot og good muscle packed on. My problem is even though I eat clean, my appetite & portions have increased over time to feed these muscles. Now, if I stop training for 2-3 months, I get FAT! I have to go in for a hernia surgery on FEB 21 and the dock wants me to lose 10 pounds on a restricted diet. I hate feeling hungry. Are there foods you recommend to satify that hunger feeling or this part of it and I must get used to it. I have never had to lose weight or diet to lose in my life. Help much appreciated! This morning I had one poached egg, 2 slices of melba toast with a pat of peanut butter ( only 1 is recommended). Lunch & dinner is supposed to be 4 onzes of a lean meat, one apple/grapefruit, veggies. I'm eating like a bird! Lucky
AMAZING... That gives me a lot of motivation, I am on my first day of a cut, trying to get down about 20lbs in 6 weeks...
