I found a new exercise iv never done it seems to work very very well. Use like a 15pound or 20 get down like your doing a push up. Then pull up one weight at a time. That ish kills!

I did a very low carb diet last year for a short time and dropped a pound per day average over the first 2 weeks. I didn't cut out alcohol or increase my exercising, simply changed the way I ate. Lots of mustard (substituted it for nearly every sauce/dressing), pickles, tuna and fresh, raw veggies.

Well tomorrow morning is weigh in and I feel pretty good. My pants fit a little looser. I've cut all soda, alcohol, and fast food 100% this week. I've been working out pretty hard before work and have cut all bad carbs and eating clean. I'm exited for morning to weigh it. Week 1 almost over!

Good luck dude. I'm about the same size and have the same goal. I was able to get down to 285 from 316 just by counting calories and eating on a stricter schedule. I have since yo-yo'd back up to right at 300 but am about to hit it hard again.

Yeah, as with any diet you need to make it a chang of lifestyle not just a quick diet. I've been in pretty good shape in the past (using many steroids) but at least I know the dos and donts. It won't be as easy doing it naturally but it will happen

How did you calculate your Body Fat percentage??

With a handheld meter like the Dr uses. I had it checked at the gym.

Cool. I'll have to try that, because I'm 6'3" and I weigh 245-250 and I'm always getting told that I'm 22%+... If you do the math thats 53.9-55lbs of fat lol there is literally no way. But thanks, I'm going to have to try that and good luck!

p.s. if you can run I would highly suggest it.

Week 2 is done. lost another 2.6lbs. not a big loss but im lifting heavy and drinking lots of water so weightloss numbers are a little tricky.

total lost in two weeks is 8.4lbs.

Ive already noticed a pretty big change in my look and for sure how i feel.

My diet is starting to take shape now and consist of:

Breakfast

3 eggs and 1 toast wheatbread

Protein shake (after workout)

snack

celery and nuts

lunch

8oz tuna or chicken breast

1 serving fruit

more veggies

protein shake

snack

string cheese

protein bar

dinner

usually a leafy green salad with chicken or steak

another protein shake at around 9pm

Goal is to stay around 150g protein daily.

Good job bro.

Eating real foods (not foods in boxes or prepackaged), really helped me. Stay away from sodium, drink lots of water, and cook your own food with with your own ingredients really helped me. Cardio and some resistance training obviously helps too.

I went from 185 to a lean 147lb in about 3 months. Lemme see if I can find some pics... It def motivated me seeing other ppl get results so if my pics help you or anybody else, cool
