Today is the first day I've failed on my diet. Finished my left over state fair cookies... Idk 5 small cookies. I'll get over it. Hopefully I can make it to the gym after work tonight. Won't be off till 9:30pm and I started at 9:30am. Guess we'll see.
Trying to do a low carb diet(under 30g)low calorie(under 2200) each day. Also supplementing with HOT-ROX, Receptor Max, and Anaconda Protocol. Maybe it seems excessive as I'm still a beginner and I'm trying to cut some weight, but I think it will work.
Interesting, seems like we're in sort of the same boat here. (i'm 6'2 at 225) and just started my diet today.
I know you didn't ask for any advice, but honestly i think you need to up your carbs and calories. They only reason i say this is because eventually your weight loss will stall and you are going to have to cut your calories further, carbs further, or exercise more. And it doesn't seem like you have much to give in any of these categories.
The reason i say this is because i attempted to diet down last year and ended up losing about 10 pounds or so, and completely stalled for the 2nd month. I was intaking less than 50g of carbs a day and maybe 2000 calories.
On my diet this year i'm starting at around 3000 cals a day (healthy, mind you) and am going to progressively cut everything and add in cardio as progress stalls.
I guess what I'm thinking is that my progress will stall out when I hit the single digits for body fat. As of now I'm still having a hard time of gauging my fat loss. Starting anaconda at the same time I started a cut was smart and stupid at the same time. Creatine weight gain seems to be making it harder to measure my fat loss. I'm not really concerned about it yet though.
I'm 100% dedicated to this, so when I do stall out I will up my workouts, up my cardio, and if I find it necessary I will add cheat days to keep my fat loss hormones going. 5 years ago I was 180lbs and a collegiate track athlete. Last year I maxed out at 255lbs. I've dropped weight since then. I know what I have to do to be thin and fit, it just takes dedication. I won't give up.
