Thanks for reply everyone. Really appreciate your input.
No, I suppose I was at 30% bodyfat. I was considerably fatter. Basically, I went from 40 pants size to 32.
As for strength/muscle--I actually gained some serious muscle during this period. But again, newbie gains in action. I had no muscle, as I was pretty much sedentary for the past decade (I'm 22 years old now).
I started running 3 times/week and went to gym 3 times a week. I actually started doing this one year ago, however I stalled because I was eating poorly. Three, four months ago I decided to give up junk food. Since then, I haven't had a single cheat meal, and honestly, I've lose the appetite for chips, pizza, fast food. Who would've though!
I haven't eaten a lot of protein either, which I will try to add in the future. My meal plan looked something like this:
Morning: Green smoothie -half avocado, banana, apple, kiwi, spinach
Snacks: 50g almonds
Lunch: Salad (bell peppers, lettuce, cherry tomatoes, kidney beans)
Dinner: Meat --usually salmon as I can't find gass-fed meat here + vegetables.
My strength levels definitely increased, but what I'm more pleased about running. When I first started, running 8-10 minutes (1.5km) was really a chore. I would get out of breath and really couldn't push more. Now I can do 5k, ~30 minutes no problem.
In the future, I need to think about how I will manage my cardio. I don't want to get too skinny, so I will probably have to cut down cardio to 2 times/week or add sprints. Time will tell.
