I am 28 and have been out of the gym for about 4 years. I’m 5’7", weigh 235, at 27% bf (classic endomorph). I’ve been back in the gym for several weeks now, basically working out everything every time at medium weight and doing cardio before and after. I’ve also been reforming my eating habits. I was eating Lunch and a big Dinner and that was it. Since I’ve started working out again, I’ve dropped soft drinks entirely, drinking water all day long. I’ve started eating 3 small meals + 3 small snacks (apples, shakes, pineapple, etc) during the day day. I’m estimating my caloric intake at about 2000 calories a day. Things seem to be progressing along nicely. In a few more weeks, I think I’ll have my metabolism ramped up and be ready to step things up to the next level.
Given that info, what do you recommend I do to maintain my current weight, while getting my body fat % down to something reasonable?
