^^^^^^^^ do it, I did and currently loving it! Takes a while to make it your own, but work at it and you will notice that you can make this a lifestyle not just a way of dieting!Originally Posted by larrybailey

One tricks of the trade my buddies use to do to drop that weight for a show or just pounds in general is the only meal he had of solid food was breakfast. The rest of the day was shakes, oatmeal and fish oil. Most of the fat just came from from the oil itself. And then late night just salads.
Its tricky but some how he worked it into his diet for weeks like that. I tried it and it work. But of course with something like this we added something too keep our metab up high and loaded up on that protein.

Eh I normally just stick to 1.5 g protein per lb of bw. 1 g carbs per lb of lbm. If your worried about efa's just take 5g of fishoil a day. Consume the majority of your carbs in meal 1-2 split the rest between meals 3-4 and split protein evenly for meals 1-6. Cardio either before last meal,after training, or before breakfast. 10 lbs should be gone in no time at all.

I'm in your situation exactly:
- 1 month ago I was 192 lbs at 17% bodyfat. Yesterday, 184lbs at 15.9% bodyfat. Sounds great right? Wrong - this means my lean body mass before was159lbs. Now it is 154 lbs. .... I'm losing muscle!!!
If you find you're losing muscle like me, try slightly cutting back cardio while adding another 100 calories back to your diet... then reevaluate twice a week and adjust again as needed.

I don't think I'm gunna cut, unless I find a show to do. Cause I'm not excessively fat I figure if your pecs stick out farther than your belly your doin just fine hahaha

So your telling a 19 year old the only way to cut and maintain muscle is to get on roids? Ok I'll start my 12 week cycle of SuperDrol at 50mg ED tomorrow with cell-tech as my PCT
