Hey all, I'm new here but not to weightlifting. I've been weightlifting fairly consistently for the last seven years, but my diet has always been a very weak point for me. It hasn't been from a lack of knowledge, but more from a lack of willpower that is easily dominated by my sweet-tooth!
I started my diet last thursday. I'm varying the foods a bit each day, but generally speaking my calories are between 2500 and 2700, protein between 350 and 400 grams, carbs around 30 grams, and fats make up the rest of the calories. I'm going to try it with the calories this low split into 7-8 meals for a couple weeks and see if there's muscle loss occuring. If so, I'll bump up my fats and calories accordingly.
At the start of my diet, I was weight 261 lbs with a 37.625" waist.
After dropping a few pounds already(likely mostly water), I'm weighing in at 258 lbs with the waist shrunk in to 37". My goal is to get to around 230 or so and then evaluate where I'm at then. I'd appreciate any motivating comments or criticism; there have been a lot of great transformations by people on this site!
