    Aussie...you are way too big to even think of that :S there are essential macronutrients you have to meet to keep mass and overall health...to toss some you would need at least 290g of protein and 140g of fat...that alone surpasses that haha and its NO carbs , kinda keto...you can NOT go this low bro!

    i would say don't go lower than 2200kcal/day
    1st get a kitchen scale
    breakfast: 5 eggs + 10 eggwhites omelet with some greens - 60g protein 25g fat
    snack 1: 50g almonds - 10g protein, 6g net carbs, 20g fat
    lunch: 200g ground beef + 100g cottage cheese + 1 cup of broccoli - 80g pro, 40g fat, 10g carbs
    snack 2: 2scoops whey - 240cal - 50g pro 2-4 carbs
    dinner: 200g lean meat with some greens- 60g protein
    snack 3: 2scoops whey/casein - 50g protein


    this should be around 2.2k calories. if you don't want so many meals just combine the snacks with the 3 main meals
    see how you feel after a week.

    Yeah you could probably eat around 2500 and still loose fat. Face it you a big boy, I am runnning around 1850, thats about as low as I would go, and you have 85lbs on me.
    I would say carb cycling would be a good method, as long as you can keep track. Other then that just continue lifting heavy things.

    I am running low carbs 5 days a week with my high carb days on back and leg day. Running Fat 102, carbs 30, protein 205 around 1850 cals for low carb days and fat 102, carbs 100, protein 200, 2200 calories, for my high carb days. Basing the high carb days on the days of my heaviest lifting.

    I am also doing intermittent fasting only eating inbetween the hours of 12 and 8. So far it is working fairly well and my strength is still the same, although I am only about 2 weeks in.

    make sure you lower the calories gradually maybe 100 per day until you get to the number you want.

    I know it's a little off topic, but does t3 actually have a profound effect (I'm assuming the pharmaceutical grade stuff here) on body fat whilst preserving mass? I heard it can have some pretty nasty sides like thyriod problems, but I also read that it's impossible to shut down your thyroid with t3, guess thats broscience for u lol.

    It can have nasty sides if you run it above the normal phisiological limits, low doses it is safe and effective

    Also I have read case studies where people where misdiagnosed with hypothyroidism and ran t3 for 3 years and regained normal lvls in 3 months. So yes that is bro science

    Being relatively new to the supplement game tis f-ing impossible some times to sort the wheat fom the chaff with all these conflicting opinions eh? I have a science based undergrad, and even with that I find it difficult to go through all this pub-med stuff looking for what people claim is viable evidence of something's effectiveness, which turns out to be a study performed on one middle aged rat in the 1940's. Madness... Still, possible to run t3 on a low cal diet and maintain muscle then?

    That depends on a lot of factors, age weight, body fat, training and diet.

    Take your calories and multiply it by .35 = calories from EFA (good fat)

    Take the balance of your calories and divide by 4 = grams of carbohydrates.

    Here it is:
    ~3000 calories
    ~375g protein
    ~115g EFA (fat)
    ~100g carbs

    Do whatever weight training you are so inclined to do. After resistance training perform cardio of choice for 30 mins minimum with a target heart rate of 65%-70% of your max heart rate. Consume your carbohydrates around your training.

    Simple, drug free way to very easily shed fat. You do not need nor want to use T3. It is very overrated.

    Your laziness is going to waste your muscle. Fat skinny guy is in your future.

    Why do you ask for advice if you wont take it? Seriously!

    I'm not an expert by any means.

    Generally 10-12x BW for calories is a decent starting point depending upon your phenotype. Some of course have higher metabolisms and can handle more calories. I am an endomorph and with meticulous diet and nutrient timing can actually increase LBM and loose fat (recomposition) at 10X bw...I am also 200lbs and 47yo....

    The point I cannot emphasize enough is that it is better for body composition and muscle retention to achieve a deficit by caloric expenditure rather than caloric deprivation. I don't know how long you have been at this but I have been breaking my ass for ten years toi gain 3-5lbs of LBM a year and would not want to lose any due to laziness...I can easily starve myself and lose all of my hard earned LBM.

    Depending upon your experience with deficits you may be able to start with more than 3000 calories but I would not go lower without the risk of losing LBM.

    Makes a ton of sense to me.

    Lift the fücking weight from the floor, or leave it on the ground. The thoughts are supposed to be daunting. The pain is meant to be tormenting.

    Thank you is all i can say for that info. When i was up to about 290 i cleaned up my diet significantly and started eating around 2900 cals a day. Ive gotten down as low as 207 but totally stagnated at fat loss. Infact ive gained a little. Changed stuff around while i was on cycle and it upsettingly got worse, i dropped 1100 cals roughly... I think im going to give this a try. And see how it goes.

    Take the balance of your calories and divide by 4 = grams of carbohydrates.

    Here it is:
    ~3000 calories
    ~375g protein
    ~115g EFA (fat)
    ~100g carbs

    Do whatever weight training you are so inclined to do. After resistance training perform cardio of choice for 30 mins minimum with a target heart rate of 65%-70% of your max heart rate. Consume your carbohydrates around your training.

    Simple, drug free way to very easily shed fat. You do not need nor want to use T3. It is very overrated.

    I am quoting this so that I can come back and learn from this. Why is your avatar not Yoda's image?

    I demand answers!
