i currently eat 3 eggs and apple or blueberries for breakfast and lunch i eat a tuna sw on whole wheat bread and some kind of veggie and wheat thins dinner is usually some kind of meat and some veggie! snacks are usually a whey protein shake and a apple in between breakfast and lunch and dinner. just started this plan last week that i made.

i currently go to the gym 3-4 times a week mon-wed-fri and anytime i feel like going! i start off by running on treadmill at 5 mph to get warmed up then i go to 7.5-8 and run for 1 minute then i go down to 5 and do it for 2 minutes i repeat this till i reach 30 minutes then i weight train full body each of those days i do different exercises for each body part each day i workout i have a rest day in between each workout so the full body workout is not killing me at all i have been doing 2 sets of 15 reps!!

I started with stats nearly identical to yours, and am planning on cutting to ~175. The diet and workout regimen you outlined is fairly in line with mine, only I've eschewed the cardio since early December, and I'm now down to ~208 (started in November). I'd say just stick to it. I count calories, which I think helps keep you from straying too far from where you want to be. I've taken in between 1750 and 2000 calories pretty much every day, if that's of any help.

Need to go into a calorie defict to garner any weight loss.....find your maintenance weight and take off 500 calories from that to get 1 pound of weight loss per week or 1000 for 2 pounds.

With your 3-4 days a week at the gym and being in a calorie deficit, the weight will come off....might not be as fast as you like, but would be the best way IMO.

Good luck!

Lift Routine Mon-Wed-Fri:
Deadlifts: 2x10 warm up sets then 3x10 work sets
Squats: 1x12-15 warm up then 3x10 work sets
Bench: 3x8 warm up then 3x8 work sets
TBar: 1x10 warm up then 2x12 work sets
(45 second break between sets)
Do cardio AFTER your lifts
Do abs, forearms, bis/tris(if you want), calves, and cardio on Tuesday and Thursday

Nutrition:
Cut down on the carbs, keep the protein clean(chicken breast, tuna, etc.)


Side Note: Don't sweat the weight too much unless its all fat. I'm 6'2" and 320lbs but I'm built like a brick house. Dense body structure, thick bones, and plenty of muscle. So just for a comparison if you're built like me, don't sweat it ;-)

this is my first day on NEW DIET foods info from fitday.com
Calories Goal 1500-1700

Fat (31%) Carbs (42%)
Protein (27%) Alcohol (0%)

second day

Fat (25%) Carbs (33%)
Protein (42%) Alcohol (0%)

WHICH IS THE BETTER NUMBERS FOR FAT LOSS?? MORE PROTEIN LESS CARBS OR MORE CARBS LESS PROTEIN??
i think def need more protein and use it as fuel instead of using carbs i think 2nd day is best?

i was thinking of takin ripped fuel 5x in conjunction with healthy eating and workout THOUGHTS??
