Checked my weight on my scale at my gym today. I was a half pound under. Given that I lose about two pounds overnight on average, I was able to eat a bit today and I might be able to have a small breakfast tomorrow. Anything more would be pushing it, though.

25lbs down. Weight loss has stalled out recently. Thinking about giving the musclepharm "bizzy diet" a try to mix things up a little. Is this a bad idea? I hate the concept of half of my food bein supplements, but it's only 21 days.

pretty sure that's just a temporary diet to dry up for a certain date, but you'll inevitably put all that water weight on afterwards.

i.e. it's for people at <10% bodyfat to bring out their vascularity/definition for a photoshoot or day at the beach, it wouldn't really help you in the long run.

me thinks

I'm down to 205, which is 40 lbs down

Now that i'm down to a more reasonable weight, I'm gonna try and focus more on getting rid of this gut. Any suggestions?

I'm considering it just to mix things up a little. Maybe that temporary change will "shock" my body a little and allow some more solid weight loss over the next few months?

i'll be the third person to tell you not to do it

it will not magically shock your body past your wall lololol, hitting a wall is very normal when gaining/losing weight. normally all you need to do is to make minor changes in your diet and possibly switch up your lifting/cardio routine

5'11 @ 192 this morning

goal: 6pack for the first time ever (probably around 165-170 is my goal) while preserving as much muscle as possible.

on macros: 300pro/60fat/215cho ~2600kcal
off macros: 300pro/85fat/100cho ~2400kcal

lift 5x week, hit almost all bodyparts 2x week but rotate. chest/shoulders/tri - back/bi/traps - legs
doing cardio 4x week to start, usually just 30mins on treadmill incline walking. about 400kcal per session. neglected doing abs so doing them 2-3x week now too
eating extremely clean: chicken, beef, eggs, milk, whey, almonds, veggies, fruit, oats, yams, fish oils = pretty much all i consume on a daily basis

also fasting 16-17hrs daily. the plan is to slowly taper my calories down every few weeks and then once i get to about 2100-2200 just increasing cardio gradually to keep the defecit going.


critics/advice come at me

I think 5 days a week while cutting might be a little excessive.

hmm, i don't do a lot of volume. i mainly focus on compound lifts and go heavy - with only a couple accessory movements. similar to 5x5 so i don't spend longer than an 1:15 in the gym, what would you reccomend?

If I'm just trying to get rid of a belly and some excess body fat, would y'all recommend high reps or high weight? I've heard differing things.

I'd recommend learning how to eat right.
