    I went from 205 lbs, 25% body fat to 177 lbs, 8% bodyfat in 6 months

    I went from 205 lbs, 25% body fat in June 2010 to 177 lbs, 8% bodyfat in December 2010 using P90X and the right nutrition & supplements.

    In June 2010, I started following a strict diet based on “Mastering Your Metabolism” with Jillian Michaels and supplements from Dr. Mercola. I made some great progress but I was back into the same weight-lifting routine I’d done ‘off-and-on’ for the past 12 years. I still couldn’t run a ˝ mile without feeling like I would pass out.

    In October 2010, I started P90X and later Shakeology and by December, I dropped 37lbs of fat and gained 9 lbs of muscle. I went from 25% body fat to 8% body fat and ended up at 177lbs!

    I'm thinking of starting a bulking phase next... any ideas, tips or feedback is welcome.





    I made a Youtube video which shows my transformation

    I'm interested in what you estimate it to be? I used a fat caliper and measured 4 locations (Using the Pollack 4 method), then plugged it into the Linear Online calculator, along with my weight, height, age, etc.

    I agree that the numbers may be a bit off, but not as much as you have estimated. I think his before is probably 20-23% or so

    Again I agree no matter what the arbitrary numbers are, you look great! Just splitting hairs here with the numbers, the picture is what matters, not some stupid number. And I think we all can agree the pictures look great!

    You could be anywhere from 11-14% imo. You are right in the range where you won't see differences from one percent to another. If you were under 10%, you would have sharper shoulder and back lines. Not to say your transformation isn't impressive, which it is (and will rep on recharge because it's great progress), however I think it's necessary to know that you are in the higher range because if you start a bulk you are going to lose your abs fast.

    My vote is recomp. You are at a solid size and would see surprising changes with a few pounds of fat loss / muscle gain.

    Thanks for the feedback but what do you mean by "recomp", haha? I'm kinda new to all these terms being thrown around on the boards.

    I'm thinking right now of bulking up for 90 days and then cutting again to get to even lower body fat than I am at now.

    ***Not completely sure here but from what I understand, a recomp is basically losing fat and gaining muscle simultaneously. It is supposed to be very difficult and take a long time. I think the reasoning for it is to minimize the fat gain/muscle loss that a bulk/cut would lead to separately, hence the difficulty and lengthiness

    Correct, it requires a much tighter awareness of your calorie intake. Basically be at just over maintenance calories and lift like a beast. Your body will take care of the rest, but don't expect miracles overnight.

    I'm just gonna go ahead and guess you didn't put on 7 pounds of muscle- thats difficult for anyone on a bulk. Lean body mass and water weight gained? Probably. Also, being that your bf calculations are a little off, it's safe to say you gained quite a bit less than 7 pounds of LBM and didn't lose as much fat as you thought


    Impressive nonetheless, props

    Man.. I think about all the wasted time, week after week where I had my wife checking my bodyfat from my suprailiac, abdominal, tricep and thighs and using calculators based on my age, height and weight to determine my body fat. I could have just came to you guys and had you do an eyeball estimation based on some compressed-jpeg photos! I could've saved SO much time.

    hahah - anyway, thanks for the props.

    Great video! Congratulations! You look great!
    A diet isn't punishment. A diet is a way to reward your body with the wholesome, nutritious food that it needs. Your body composition is a direct reflection of what you put in your mouth.

    I don't think anyone was taking digs at you for the bodyfat estimations/results summary, they were just just pointing out that they pretty rough. This includes multi-point skinfold estimations (been doing mine and have been having them done for some time, and they tend to put me a little/lot lower than I could possibly be).

    But the results shown in your pictures really speak for themself, and are downright awesome.
