On saturday it is just more of the same but i can cheat a bit. Saturdays I may even go up to 4000 calories. It is a heavier build day. The others are for my lighter circuit days but I am doing a full body DC Style workout on Saturdays and I eat to grow. Sundays I have all my carbs in the morning for the family pancake day. I will have like 2 big whole wheat pancakes with sugar free syrup, then eat pretty low carb the rest of the day.
    Good info kleen!!

    Love pancake days, lol. Is unbleached enriched flour white bread(I always hear stay away from white bread) a type of bread you shouldn't eat?

  3. You know I don't know. I can't really stand white bread anymore. I don't even like the really airy wheat breads. If my loaf of bread doesn't feel heavy enough to hurt someone with I just don't care for it. Most of the breads I eat have 3-4 grams of fiber per slice. I go by that. Now my pancakes just are the Aunt Jemimah whole wheat ones.

    On another not I overtrained my leg and the back of my knee is messed up so I haven't been able to do cardio or legs this week. Not helping with my goals but I still seem to be leaning up a little just slowly. I have also decided to do drop sets instead of rest pauses while I am trying to cut. Keep the pace faster and will be less frustrated not concentrating a pure strength while trying to lean up.

  5. That would be post number 1, October 27th. I have lost some fat but I don't think you can tell in my abs. I will take some pics this Saturday. I have gotten some of my vascularity back in my arms and my waist is smaller but I don't think my abs look any better yet. I am 2-3 lbs lighter was going kind of slow at it thinking my hairy self was covering more fat than it was but I trimmed up and was not so happy with what was under the hair.

  6. Okay here are the pics from yesterday. Like I said I dropped some weight my waist is smaller my arms and legs are getting more vascular again but my abs haven't even budged. I will be dieting pretty hard and doing a lot of cardio over the next month but I kind of doubt that I will be able to achieve my goal. I do however have time to at least look really good doing it... Either way I need to start looking for a make shift diaper just in case... LOL

    If you think I am buying an entire box of depends to put on 1 you have lost you mind. LOL Thanks by the way. I am hoping that is some left over Thanksgiving food but either way I am on the way to the gym. Considering you have gained 4 lbs that means you need to drop 14 before Christmas... You buying depends??? By the way everyone who signed in on this is definitely getting a call out to honor it. Oh Yeah!!!!

  9. Well its good to know that I'm not the only one having trouble on the way to their goal. Keeping my ABS by Christmas doesn't look like its going to be a problem. The more I have dried out the better I have been looking. The downside is trying go keep that 10 lb gain in there. I'm up 11 right now, but I'm sure to drop 3-5 lbs sometime into PCT. So I need a couple more security lbs by Christmas. Because of that I've added Cal's into rest days...we will see!

  10. **** it. I'll be 154 by Christmas and under 13% bf. Currently sitting at 144 at 12-13%. Got a lot of work. I'll be happy if I can hit 150+ in all honesty though lol.

  11. Fack how did I miss this! Great thread so far.

  12. You are making great progress Chris, keep up the good work man.
    If my direct and cynical approach bothers you, just ignore it. I'm just saying what you need to hear ;).

  13. Thanks Matt, It is hard for me to see much of anything but I notice the vascularity. I have a quad vein coming out and my arms too. Those pics are unfed on Saturday so not much vasclarity in them. That and the lack of a tan has me washed out. Yet I definitely have my work cut out for me. Lean Gains is an awesome lyfestyle diet but I am going to have to count the calories and what not now. I will still be using Lean Gain but just counting everything to make sure I don't go over my marks for the day now. I was just eyeballing things and recomping but I won't make it to my desired level of leanness without actually counting my calories. At least not in the speed I want too anyway. I can do it slowly without counting and doing lean gains but with any speed it is going to take actual attention to detail.

    The beauty of of it is, you don't really need to knock your "food selection" to boring status, just like you said, make sure you are hitting your calorie targets, macros, etc.

    You have made visible progress so far, and once you do that, the gains are going to be much more RAPID, no doubt about it.

    If I would have seen this I would have joined up just for the ride. I love little things like this, they tend to keep you on your "A" game.

    Exactly why I do them. When I slip into a B level physique I use something like this to call me out of it. I also tend to fast a little longer on my burn days. Let myself just go with 2 meals so I have better choices. Once used to the fast adding 4 hours to it is not a big deal at all.

    Thanks Rick, I think I can get the job done but it will be a close call. Like I said to Frank I will be extending my fasts on burn days which is always better for me. I am also lowering overall carb content and cutting calories beyond my normal recomp levels. I am sure I will see some sudden changes over the first 2 weeks of this. I don't plan on cheating again until my Anniversay on the 15th of December then it will be clean eats until December 25th. I unwrap the abs that morning or Christmas Eve night in some pics then I feast for Christmas Dinner about mid day on Christmas! I have Nana already planning to make me my own personal home made pecan pie with fresh pecans. OH YEAH!!!!!!!

  17. Congrats on the anniversary man!

    I ended up extended my fast a bit towards the end of my diet as well. I can't say it did much in the way for direct fat loss, but as you alluded to it just knocks that extra meal out, giving the same amount of calories now only needing to be split in 2 meals, which is nice for those of us who like to eat.

    Exactly, just a little more enjoyment. I don't know that it would do much else unless you added in a second fasted cardio session during that time to kick off more burn. Just had a shake some almonds and then may have a little more almonds before i get out of here and then will have probably 12 oz lean pork loin, a bunch of asparugus and 1 cup of cottage cheese with splenda and cinnamon for "dessert". I love cottage cheese with cinnamon and splenda!

  27. Hey everyone, sorry but what are you referring to when you say macros? I am working hard on figuring out my routine and nutrition, and since I am spending the holidays alone this year it will be easier for me to focus on getting my body closer to my goals.

  29. Finally back in full swing. Hitting the gym 3 times per day. Session 1 is a 45 minute cardio session, session 2 is my heavy workout, I choose 1-2 compound movements and do 30 total reps with my 6 rep max then 1-2 sets of pump work for that muscle group. Session 3 is isolation work for the muscle group worked previously that day and then I follow it up with some sort of crossfit metcon. I work at a gym training athletes so I have tires, sleds, olympic platforms, plyo boxes, and just about anything else I need. Its also really easy to get in 3 workouts when you're at the gym all day anyway.

    Diet is right around 3000 cals split between two meals and peri workout nutrition. I'm taking in close 400g of carbs, 250g protein, and 45-50g fat per day. All calories are consumed between 1-9 pm and the first workout is done fasted. All calories are consumed right around my two main workouts. As far as supps go, i'm taking a whey iso and some bcaas. I may add in some ECA the last two weeks, but we'll see how everything goes.

    Hope everyone else is still killing it, good luck to everyone.
