I’ve never been one to want to get “shredded,” I actually prefer a smoother 10-12% look. However, CT’s pics were motivation, and I got tired of seeing my friends try ridiculous things to get cut, so I decided to put some T-mag research to work and show them how it’s done. My diet can be found here:
This site is pretty cool, it’s basically an online food log. You can see every single thing I’ve eaten since I started logging 8 days ago. You can also see exactly what I’ve done on my workouts under my “journal entry”. Here’s what I’ve done so far:
Separated meals into P+C and P+F. Currently I eat P+C first meal of the day (a Myoplex MRP) and I have 35g of sugar from a Gatorade post-workout with 25g Whey powder.
Cut calories to ~2150-2400/day
Started Interval Training 3x/week
In 8 days I’m already looking noticeably different (people have been commenting) and I’ve dropped from ~12% to ~9.8% on my scale (inaccurate but using as a relative measure). Vascularity seems to be increasing also. I feel great, more concentration, don’t feel sluggish during the day anymore, and I haven’t really felt the low-carbs affecting my workouts. In fact I’m getting stronger. I really want to take this to the next level (6-7%bf), so some HARSH criticism of my diet would be great.
Gatorade post-workout is obviously not optimum, or is it ok? Should I spring from some powdered malto, or is it not too big of a difference at this point?
Should I spring for some Hot-Rox at this point? Methoxy maybe?
Should I look into r-ala?
My Saturated Fats seem pretty high (sometimes ~20gms/day).
I would especially love to hear from Timbo, TT, all the experts…getting from 9% to 6% is going to be the hard part, so I need all the advice I can get. Thanks guys.
