I am new to TNation and in need of some advice. I love to lift heavy and strength has now been my main goal in the past months. Problem is, is I followed the "See Food" diet thinking it would help my lifts go up. Big mistake on my part and now it has bitten me in the ass. I look like shit.
My stats now are:
6'2'' 255-259 pounds around 22-25% body fat (I'm guessing)
Pretty weak for someone my size I know. I am stuck at a crossroads. I do not want to compromise my strength but at the same time I need to loose some fat/weight. I would like to compete in the 242 class for powerlifting and I can live with being 14-17% body fat. I do not know what to do and in need of some advice. I am open to try anything and I am open to criticism and tough love.
