OK, it?s time for me to finally do this. I know it?s probably the worst time of year, but I?d really like to lose the layer of fat on my gut.
I haven?t done it recently, but here?s about where I am body composition wise:
5? 8? ? 200 lbs. 33? ? 34? waist (depending on the pants I?m wearing) probably 18 % body fat.
Most of my fat is around my mid section, my gut? I don?t have love handles just a little bit of a belly and I want it gone. I?m have 4 bottles of MAG-10 to put to use as soon as I can drop some fat. With that being said, here?s what my daily diet looks like:
6:00 a.m. ? 5 egg whites, 1 whole egg.
? cup of rolled oats with a scoop of Low-Carb Grow!.
9:00 a.m. ? Egg & Cheese Omelet - 3 whole eggs, ? cup of 2% fat cheese
11:30 a.m. ? 1 bowl of Roman lettuce
4 oz of chicken breast.
1 TSP of flax oil and 1TSP Italian dressing.
2: 00 p.m. ? Pre and post workout shake made of 16 oz of skim milk
2 scoops of Low-Carb Grow!.
4:00 p.m. ? 8 oz of skim milk 1 scoop of Low Carb Grow!
7:00 p.m. ? 8 oz of meat (chicken or steak or lean burger)
2 cups of veges.
Before Bed Sometimes ? ? cup of cottage cheese
Here?s what that should add up to (about):
protein carbs fats 315 117 86 40% 40% 20% 50% 19% 31%
Calories 1258 470 77
Total Calories 2504
Let me also add in that for a snack if I?m feeling hungry I?ll eat celery with PB or a handful of mixed nuts. I drink at least 96 oz of water a day, oh and I have a coffee with maybe a 2 TSP of vanilla creamer each morning on the drive into work. I know I?ll probably get crap for this, but? It?s gotta be done?
I also take a multi-vitamin in the morning and ZMA each night before bed.
OK? My other issue is I slack during the weekend. Not that I eat bad, I just don?t eat enough. I usually only get 4 meals a day in on the weekends. It?s not that I?m lazy or something it?s that during the weekends I normally sleep in so I miss a meal or 2 right there. How can I adjust for this without getting up at 6 a.m.?
I?d like to loose about 15 - 20 lbs of fat. I seem to keep my strength and size when I diet so I?m not worried too much about losing muscle or anything. Especially when I start on my MAG-10. What do you think? Is this diet effective? I?d like to try to go down to 2000 calories a day, but what should I cut out? Should I even consider this? What should I change about my diet?
Thanks for your help?
