My primary goal is to slowly reduce my fat mass and weight, while maintaining (or if possible building) my lean muscle mass.
I currently weigh 260, with a BF% of about 50% -- this is per my inexpensive Tanita scale, so I doubt it's really accurate. I'll be getting a good measurement taken at a local weight clinic at the beginning of May.
Right now I am:
eating: 10-20% percent below maintenance - 1800-2000 kC per day, following the zone ratio (40/30/30) of carbs, fats, proteins. I chose the zone ratio because it's easy, and I don't think that in my current situation I need the kind of precise macros that someone healthier would.
Lifting: I have just started Mark Rippetoe's Starting Strength program, and am lifting three times a week. This coming week will be my second week, and I'll be adding a little weight on some of the lifts, and continuing working on being able to get all three sets completed on the others. I definitely feel stronger, and am really enjoying the program.
Cardio: I am hitting 30 minutes a day - light intensity on my lifting days, and a higher intensity (for me, anyways) Couch to 5k interval program on cardio days. Sunday is a straight rest day - nothing other then lifestyle activities.
Am I on a decent track here, or is there anything I am doing that really seems out of whack?
