    Okay cool. I'm at about 3 sessions a week, but felt burnt out very quickly last week. I like the positive thought brainwashing part! Whatever you're doing, it's working!

    This week i will hit 12 total sessions between cardio and weights... My cardio is not that strenuous outside of the 15 mins of hiit....

    positive affirmation time:
    i go over all my day, all my cooked meals... What i will be doing at work... All that i want to get done that day while cooling down... Think about any slip ups the past couple of days and just figure out how to avoid them...

    Same. I have been sticking to mostly sprint stuff and tire flips, but don't recover as quickly. LISS just makes me sad. Might give epsom salt baths a try. That's a good affirmation.

    That's about 40 lbs in 4 weeks? Unless my math is incorrect.

    Side note: I purchased Trutein PB Chocolate. It's much more mild than I would have liked. Still prefer Cinnabun!

  12. Where do you stand now?
    Lets Say you do everything that you are supposed to do. You check all the boxes. You Believe, you prepare, you work, you fight, and you know your why, and Life still catches you on your blindside..... Just remember Failure Is Never Final !!!!

    249 lbs before my cheat day.... The fact that i have been losing this weight while maintaining at least one cheat day a week is pretty cool... It has to be the hiit....

  14. and i have switched to a 93%lean ground turkey as a staple (chicken was killing me).... Mashing up a yam, tossing that in with the turkey... Soooo goood!

    Squats are in the dumper but everything else is ok.... Anything over 400 on squats just feels heavy, its hard to explain... Going to start adding back some calories in a couple weeks now... I am sure it will come back with a vengeance...

    Nope I totally understand the "feeling heavy" thing. Squats are the main struggle for me when I'm (rarely) in deficit. First to go, last to come back.

    Oddly my bench and DL really don't take a hit.

    It's really no surprise actually. The leaner you get the more cheat meals you may need. I ran a prep where I had two heavy cheats a week deep into my diet and I never stalled losing fat. They're very important for many reasons.

    I think i am burning a hella ton of calories with the HIIT too... In a couple of weeks i am going to start reverse dieting to see where i am from a maintenance standpoint...

    What's reverse dieting!

  21. I weigh around why you weigh and my coach has me eating 2100. He stressed more protein less carbs and I feel great! My lifts are doing good and I feel better just overall! In my opinion it is not to low.

    Reverse dieting is where you slowly add carbs and fat back in after a deficit instead of going hog wild. This minimizes post-cut fat gain and allows you to find a more accurate maintenance level for your new body composition. It will also allow you to find a good baseline to start gaining lean muscle without sacrificing too much leanness.

  23. ended up at about 249 - 251... Going to get calipered this weekend...

    Going to start reverse dieting by doubling the amount of carbs in breakfast (first week). Each week i will choose another meal to double the calories in till i get to 300 grams of carbs a day...

  24. I may have missed it but how long will you be eating at this level and is there another step or three to his method?

  25. I did this for the 6 week cellucore challenge..... Dropped 50 lbs and 6-7 percent bf in 6 weeks... averaged 10-11 workouts per week, morning Hiit, evening weights...

    I am going to add some calories and do a more conventional diet now (more calories)

    I started the thread because i was amazed at how low my calories where at 290+lbs
