I am new as a member of this site but have gotten many articles and workouts from time to time.
I am trying to see if this is a realistic goal but there are some issues. First I am in Iraq with the military. I have been working out for the last five months consistently until I had a back injury that put me out for a month and a half. In the time frame I was working out I lost 10lbs and 3 inchs around the waist(not enough).
I have finally been released from the doctor with some guidelines, no back work except the stretches from the physical therapist.
Also the diet here is pretty rough, lots of crap. I am going to start the tailor made nutrition when I get home and can actually monitor my diet better. Here they serve lots of fried foods and carbs, carbs, carbs. I have tried monitoring my diet and keeping as close to 1800-2000 calories as possible but after reading Dr. Berardi’s article I wonder if I might be under eating to burn fat, not sure.
Anyway enough rambling. I am 5’8" and 190lbs. I carry all my weight in my mid section and am about 26% body fat. I am hoping to get some advice to see if this goal is reachable. I am heading home in that 36day mark and want to make as many change as possible. Any advice on how to go about things would also be very appreciated.
