Critique My T-Dawg 2 Diet?


#1

Iv'e been on the T-Dawg V2.0 for about 11-12 weeks now with a two week holiday inbetween,where I was off the diet.Iv'e managed to go down from about 6ft 218lbs to 203lbs before vacation,and am wondering what you guys think of my meals? am I missing something? is there anything you guys can spot that im doing wrong or need to add' to maximize fat burning? BTW I make sure I eat every 2-3 hours and drink gallons of water.

Im consuming 2500 Kcals a day is this too high for a 203lbs guys?

Diet is 70g carbs on non-workout days and 100g on a workout day.With one anyfood u like refeed a week(usually 12 slices of pizza tongue.gif )

Thank's

If you can maintain weight loss at around a pound a week you are doing just fine. It takes a lot of time to put on a lot of extra fat and it can take a fair amount of time to take it off -- without risking muscle loss.

Also, if you have upped your protein intake and become more serious about your workouts, you may be building some muscle as well as losing some fat. The scale should probably not be your only measurement.

I'm not sure if you are supplementing with Omega-3's or other good fats, which might also be helpful.

Hi Vroom,

1.)Thanks for replying,I do use 6g of fish oils a day and a whole bucket loads of other supps.The thing is I see my weight going down on the scales every week but not in the mirror i.e from my belly which is the area where im carrying my fat now,esp in the lower region, theres still some stubborn fat that wont get lost! I admit though it's not like I have the biggest pecs and or abs so this could be making the problem look worse than it is?

2.)I do lots of cardio and of course my 3xTBT routine every week.As for muscle gain well yes Iv'e deff noticed some gains esp in legs,lats,tris,and bi's although in the arm region these "gains" seemed to come after I started using creatine so I dont know how much is water retention in the muscle and how much is muscle? i.E Would I keep the muscle if I came off the creatine?

3.)I know cardio is best done on a empty stomach first thing in the AM so the food consumed isint burned off instead of fat.However I also know that one should take some whey first thing to halt night time catabolism! so whats the best way to approach this matter?

Thank's
