Hey guys, I’m 17 years old, been lifting since 13 or 14. I’ve always been fat…pretty darn fat until last year when I was measured at 18% bodyfat. Now, that’s still fat, but not as much as I used to be. Well, this summer I had a very physically demanding landscaping job and took stacker 3 occassionally, which has put me at 156 lbs. at 12% bodyfat. Problem is, I’m still fat. Basically my gut is the only real problem. When I flex I can see all six of my abs poking through nicely, but when I relax it’s just flab.
So, I took advantage of the TMan discount and bought one bottle of Methoxy and one bottle of T2, along with ZMA and some classic Grow. I even had to buy a multivitamin, since my parents survive on little debbie snacks and potato chips. I then began my interpretation of the Fat Fast diet. I’m only eating 1000 calories a day–350 come from the Grow protein shake in the morning. Usually in the afternoon I’ll have bacon or shrimp instead of the shake to keep the carbs down. At night I take around 300 calories worth of flaxseed oil, then ZMA. T2 is used 3 times per day, and Methoxy twice. I’ve been doing this for 4-5 days now, and I’ve dropped down to around 150. I feel less bloated, I look a little more cut, but I can still pinch an inch. I haven’t cheated at all, except for an apple one day. Do I need to follow the diet exactly as it says for it to work?
Also, I read a recent article about how cheat meals promote fat loss. Would it be advisable for me to pig out at the China Buffet once every 7 days or would it just set me back?
Going off on another tangent, I am very carb sensitive, or maybe I just eat too many–I love chips and salsa, and they were a staple in my diet. I also only got around 1500 calories on an average day–of course there were 4000 calorie binges, but not often. How am I supposed to recover from this caloric deficiency on top of Fat Fast after I’m off the diet? I need answers, lol
