Here's the thing, I'm 17, 6'2, 205, and compared to most of my peers I eat healthy and train hard. However, for the past ten years I have been slightly overweight. I have never been obese,but I've been probably between 13-16 percent body fat for this whole time.
I feel like if I went on an extreme diet such as the get shredded diet and got lean, then it would be easier for me to stay lean. What I'm worried about is getting off this diet and blowing back up to 13ish percent even though I'm eating healthy and training hard.
I'm not sure but I think I've heard that once you get lean it is easier to stay there, so I hope that when I transition off of the diet I will only get up to about 10% which would be very preferable to where I am now. Or I could be wrong and I might just go straight back to where I am now.
I ask whether or not an extreme diet is for me because in the get shredded article it says that you should establish good nutritional habits and get down to sub 12 percent body fat before attempting this diet, but I'm pretty sure my nutritional habits are already solid, ESPECIALLY compared to some of my friends who are absolutely ripped but eat like shit.
