Phill and TT (and others with constructive thoughts)
I started in January of 2003 at 200 lbs. (a real fat boy)(I'm 5' 7") Started Atkins in May (and started lifting pretty seriously in August) and I'm now at 171 as of today. I'm 41 yrs old.
I would like to get lean enought to see my abs. I know this is under 10% body fat and my estimate of mine right now is probably 12%-15% (I just about don't have love handles anymore and they used to be pronounced--I do hold some fat in my lower back, butt and tops of my legs).
I am still in a ketogenic diet and as of this week it looks like this
6:00 a.m- Atkins shake 20 grams protein-120 cals
9:30 a.m 7 oz bag of tuna. salmon or chicken 40-50 grams of pro- 280 kcals
12:00 10-12 oz steak 90 grams pro 950 cals salad (spinach, cucumbers,olives) approx 100 cals (with dressing)
2:30 2 egg whites 14 grams of carbs 180 cals
4:00 work out
5:00 pure pro shake 45 grams pro 200 cals
7:00 chicken breast 80 grams pro 450 cals. salad (same as above 100 cals)
That puts me at about 290 grams of protein, approx 2400 cals. My estimate is less than 50 grams of carbs. I do have a glass of scotch on occasion in the evenings so lets call total cals 2550.
I am currently doing German Body Comp (just started this week) and have been following weights with a 15 min. session of incline treadmill. (I know the high reps are not ideal for a keto diet but i had been on a fairly low reps-heavy as i could go- regimen for awhile and the body comp has actually felt good so far.
I take a good multi first thing in a.m along with a "multi oils" from GNC.
I also take an amino acid supp right before and right after lifting.
I am taking hot-roxx and thinking of stacking with SAN-Tight. If I could point to an "ideal" it would be CT after his "transformation."
I had kind of plateaued from a body and weight standpoint before the holidays-although I did manage to maintain and now I'm wondering if this should "dial" me in. I'm looking for thoughts, suggestions, comments etc.
