    35lbs of Fat Loss w. Before/After pics


    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.

    Routine was
    monday: legs
    tuesday: shoulders
    wednesday: back/bis
    thursday: abs
    friday: chest/tris

    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".

    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.

    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

    Thanks that actually means alot hah. I got a bottle of epistane actually sitting on my desk I told myself I wouldn't use it and if I was actually serious about what I'm doing I'd be able to get through losing fat first without it and then use it later. But getting this far without it has pushed myself to see what I can do naturally first.

    I tried cardio before breakfast for 2 days but I'm really not a morning person so I couldn't keep it up. I just experimented, I did cardio pre workout in the beginning and then tried post workout and just prefered it post workout.

    Yeah I really wish I could eat clean and not get fat from eating 3500 calories a day. I'd eat a half jar of peanut butter a day.

    To feel less hungry I'd just cut out any protein shakes you use and replace them with something solid and honestly I find peanut butter makes me feel hungrier. A whole egg or some olives do a better job keeping me fuller. Try to find vegetables like broccoli or cabbage with only 15 calories a cup allowing you to eat more versus corn which has 60 in a half cup.

    Keep it up though, and you will have to get use to the feeling of counting the minutes until your next meal haha. Just go to bed earlier, then breakfast comes sooner.

    Yep, 12 weeks.

    This right here is a good little tip. I've noticed myself doing this more and more over the weeks. Do I want to stay up for another hour and watch whatever on TV? I'll be even more hungry and want to snack on something. Or just go to bed, skip the snacking and get a good breakfast in the morning.

    Now if I could just sleep inbetween all my meals I could do a huge cut!

    excellent job, I needed that for some motivation. I just finished 4 weeks into my recomp and have lost 12 lbs. I was starting to lose focus but your thread lit the fire back under me.

    Great job, man! Seriously, I hope you are proud of yourself. Now that you've shed the fat, you can concentrate on putting on clean bulk. Your dedication shows, good luck in the future.

    yeah CLEAN bulk. I'm not 100% sure how to go about it, should I stick with like
    a 45%carb/30%pro/25%fat macronutrient ratio and just eat until I'm content? I've been watching some pro videos and it seems like all they eat is high protein low carbs and really low fat with some high carb days once or twice a week. what's with that?

    Great job man. As far a diet goes I'd stick with the same diet you have been on macro wise but up the calories (500 a day for first week, 250 each subsequent week until you feel like you are starting to spill over into fat gain). You could also try something slightly different as far as your meal frequency (like doing 2 large meals for a week just to give your system a shock). Honestly, with your willpower (veggie sub as a cheat!!) you can do almost anything. Lastly, at your age stay as natural as long as you can, plus girls like the cut look alot more than the muscled up look!!!

    Thanks. I'm up to about 2500-2600 calories a day, I never feel hungry and I dont feel like I just ate out at a buffet, so I think I'll stick around here for a bit and see how it works.

    all my lifts are up 5lbs in the last week or so too =)
