I'm 43, 6'0", 265, but have a weird build with thick legs...most people guess I weight 220 or so. Don't have a huge gut, but at 265, I'm pretty fat.
I'm aiming for 2-3 pounds per week or so initially in fat lost.
Working out 3x per week, walking 3 miles per day, biking whenever it's not too hot (15-20 miles per on a mountain bike), etc, yoga/pilates class (it kicks my ass) 2-3x per week.
I did most of this before, but I'm basically restricting calories now as a way to lose the fat.
So far I've tried to cut out starches and sugars and sweets and keep to 2000-2500 calories per day.
Do you think this will work?
4 days in my pants feel a little looser, workouts are a little less energetic, and I'm somewhat hungry but not achingly so.
Tried to find the optimal caloric intake. I don't want to "crash diet" or anything like that though.
