My actual "weight" hasn't dropped that much because I've been replacing body fat with muscle. I lift weights on my lunch break and get cardio in either before or after work. I've been doing two-a-days during the week for a few months now and it has paid off immensely!

I was probably 180 or a little more then and I'm 175 now.

Haha thanks man! Guess I'll keep working on the weight then..maybe in another 15lbs or so I can pick up some weighted straps to add to my cardio routines for extra resistance.

I have been working out a steady 5 days a week for a while now. I was reading a few posts here about people who wanna get in shape and lose weight etc etc. A few suggestions:

1. Eat only natural fresh foods. Anything that comes in a can or a box is garbage (unless its whole wheat pasta, or frozen veggies). Whole wheat is ONLY whole wheat if it says 100% on the front. If its not real whole wheat, its like white bread on steroids and it actually becomes more healthy to eat the white bread, not the fake whole wheat.

2. Avoid supplements. Protein shakes are only good as an entire meal replacement. But too much of those shakes cause kidney stones and other chemical imbalances in your body. These supplements provide way too much protein, and all that extra protein you eat but you dont need gets stored in your body as adipose tissue, aka fat. You can caculate your protein necessity by converting your weight into kilograms (Ex: 140 lbs. Divide that by 2.2- 63 kilograms.) Then you multiply that by your activity level. Sedentary- .8. Active- 1.0 and Athlete 1.2. These protein shakes provide too much protein for an average individual. We eat plenty of protein in our diet alone. Believe me, you dont need them.

3. Creatine. Your body makes enough. It makes exactly what you need, and when you need more it makes more. Creatine is what your body makes to make ATP= energy. Only really serious athletes need to supplement to get that extra creatine. If they dont, their body will begin to 'bonk'. You wanna know what it is, look it up. I dont wanna type it all lol.

4. Your not gonna get a 6 pack with any fat on your stomach. Not gonna happen. Stop doing 1000 crunches its not gonna get you anywhere.

5. WEIGHT. Its all about how much weight you lift. The more weight you lift, the higher your RMR is going to be, your resting metabolic rate= How many calories your body expends by just sitting in a chair. Believe me, you start lifting more weight your appetite is going to sky rocket. But then comes the question of what you are eating. Your body fat will decrease tremoundsly by lifting more weights. Your muscles are gonna be looking for that extra nutrition to feed itself, therefore eating all your stored fat and so on.

Eat right. Work out. It will happen. Dont waste your money on hydroxycut on trim spa and all that garbage. Its all about what you do to lose weight. Your not gonna lose weight by swallowing a pill.

Also---dont lose too much weight to fast. It will all come back. BELIEVE ME. Lose up to a pound a week.


Any other questions feel free to ask!!! I go to school for this stuff

i agree with almost everything you posted except number 2. Of course all of these facts do vary by the person as well. For me I require much more protein in my daily intake than the normal "average" person. I am only 5'10" 185lbs and my intake according to your scale would be 92.75 grams a day. I take in usually at least double that if at all possible. But your average person doesnt go to the gym and lift 50 lbs more than their weight doing sets. I dont have an average body type so I couldnt follow your chart.

Like i said I really do agree with what you are saying, but if someone didnt know it already, they need to take it as general advice only and adapt what their bodies need.

well you still want to eat good foods because putting on unhealthy lbs is still not gonna benefit you much.

i read a lot of articles on body building.com and your post brings one to mind that i have read...

Weight gain 101 I hope this helps - Bodybuilding.com Forums

there is some great advice for someone of your body type (Ectomorphs)

i am a Mesomorph and have been out of shape for too many years. I had become chubby in a lot of areas and had jumped to a 22% b/f%. I have lost 20lbs while putting on a ton of muscle and have dropped from 22% b/f to around 16% right now. It took me a long time to change the way my body burned my food... anything i ate effected my body weight terribly, i was terrible about gaining weight. Now after months of training I have gotten to where even though I eat pretty clean most of the time, if I just say eff-it and actually eat not so great my weight doesnt fluctuate like it used to. My weight usually fluctuates 2 lbs at max now due to water % in my body. I am still trying to cut down to 180lbs, but i got on this weight lifting thing lately more so that usually and decided i was gonna start really lifting hard and i completely put a stop to my weight loss..LOL

It's bulking bro, Although you don't want to just east nothing but mcdonalds the main point of a bulk is just give your body enough protein and energy while your working out to put on muscle, You'll end up gaining some fat. it's inevitable, That's what cutting is for after.
