Hello guys. I've been a long reader of stuff over at bb.com but I have recently found out about the T-Dawg diet here at T-Nation and decided to sign up for the forums!
Little bit about myself:
Earlier this year, I was 255 lbs @ 6'1 tall, with about 35% body fat. I was a huge tub of lard who couldn't even bench a 135 once to save his life. I remember getting sore for DAYS after doing few sets of squats with a bar + 25s on the side.
I've been following bb.com's all pro's routine and recently switched to SS and it's been about a month on SS now.
So, after about 8 months of training and not really "strict" diet, now I am at
210lbs, 23.5% BF, and just finished
3x5 Dead @ 265lbs
3x5 Squat @ 250lbs
3x5 Bench @ 160lbs.
I feel better about myself, I can actually talk to girls now (rofl) and more energy than EVER in my life.
Now, I mentioned I wasn't really doing a strict diet. I was for sure on a calorie deficit so I think that explains why I my BF% is still high even though I lost more than 40 lbs. I think I lost 5~10 lbs of muscle too but for NOW, it did work and I am happy with that.
Anyways, By July 4th 2011, I want to be about 185 lbs with 15% or so BF.
Is the T-Dawg diet good one to follow? I've been normally just limiting myself on carbs, and upping protein intake, never really a "set" program like the T-Dawg Diet. Is T-Dawg diet good for fat loss? Anyone recommend any other diet program?
If anyone can shed some light on this topic, it would be greatly appreciated! Thank you
