A brief look at the past:
- went from 210lbs to 120 , and then back to 190, and again back to 130 and back to 180. Finally determined to get over my problems. For the past 6 months I've been doing the "restrict/binge" thing which has led to quite some fat accumulated around the waist while muscle was lost due to me starving myself before. I feel like s*** and want to get myself back to where I was 3 years ago, before my ED.
- Stop the binge/restrict cycle
- first lose 7lbs of fat, after that clean bulk
- improve athletic ability - get close to what it was 3 years ago
Apart from those I'm also an active student ofcourse, so this doesn't really completely occupy my life.
4 times a week - I do the "Reverse pyramid" program , meaning I do about 3-5 sets for each move , gradually add on weight until failure
a) Legs with focus on hams/glutes
b) chest + shoulders
c) Arms + back
d) Legs with focus on quads/calves
I do 2-3 exercises per each body part
on non-training days I do low int. cardio , just for fun and stress relief (I like long walks etc.)
1800 calories -- 180g prot / 50g cho / 90g fat
(I expect you to tell me my calories are too low ; don't. I guess my metabolism is pretty screwed because at 2200 I wasn't losing. When I get rid of that midsection fat i'll gradually increase cals and bulk to get my metabolism back on track
I'll not post a whole menu here as I'm not going to eat the same things every day and even if I would i think it's not that important,. - Carbs are from veg/dairy only.
Will post food pics as often as possible
and of course, will post progress details
Thanks for all the support if you choose to follow my log. I really appreciate it, makes the whole thing so much easier.
