These days I've been dieting (for some part with no success) and analyzing what I had done wrong and what I had done right. I followed the usual low-carb, high fat and protein, green veggies and seldom fruit diet. It was full of meats, nuts, I also supplemented with creatine and followed (up to week 4) 6 weeks to superman training regimen. I busted my ass at the gym to the point tears ran down my cheeks.
The results: little fat loss, some muscle gain in specific areas(and finally it brought up my chest a bit ). I mean I am very very satisfied with the program , but my final goal wasn't achieved. I played with my calories and carbs ,still to no avail. I pleatued in the same bodyfat level as I have always had ,these (nearly) 3 years. Best of all ..all my grueling seances at the gym seem to go to horseshit when some 100lbs but ripped guy gets more attention.. I know , i know , im being shallow but fuck my life, its all shits and giggles in the winter when everybody gets impressed with my arms and shit, but damn, being lean is fucking awesome, and sadly ive never tried that feeling.
I am 17 right now, former fatboy,reaaaally fat boy, now am around 13-14 % bf although i havent checked it, arms float around 18 inches (44-46 cm), am 96 kilos, my muscle insertions are not the most desirable though, i have a high biceps, and a very stubborn chest, although i can bench in the 140 kgs as my one rep max, and squat to nearly parallel 220 kgs.
After my longings in the diets realm,(which have stunted my potential muscle gain), I have made a diet which soon Im going to start, it is based on the guidelines of the get shredded diet. I will also add more cardio and hope, that all the coffee and cinnamon I keep chugging down will actually help me. Now What if i achieve my goal, i presume that if i slip off my diet, I will re-get fat. I know this is the million dollar question, but what if there was a way of getting to stabilize the bodies fat gain/loss, optimizing it, or even better inducing fatcell apoptosis? is there a way?
P.S. if you can also critique my diet.
