Very bad, I went buck wild this first month of school and gained roughly 8-10 pounds. I run (hobby) and also lift, but no way was even half of that muscular gains, despite that most of the food I ate was fairly clean.
Anyways, I would like you to critique my plan in order to lose this weight for the swimming season (want to look good again in the speedo haha) so here is my diet (very low on cals, want to complete weight loss in roughly 1 month) as well as my workout plans and what not:
My plan is to not eat the same meals everyday, but the same food more or less just varying the meals at different times to break the monotony.
Cup of Oatmeal
Scoop of Whey
16 Slices Turkey
16oz Skim Milk
I’m shooting for a somewhat 40/30/30, a little off but it’s the closest I can really get. Calorie total is around 1600, while my maintenance with no activity is around 1800.
As for my workout regime I will be performing long distance running 6 days a week as well as 3 lifting sessions a week.
MONDAYS: 4-5 mile easy run, slow paced
TUESDAYS: “Fast intervals”, 400m intervals at 3:00 pace, performing 4 miles worth (really hard for me as 4th mile approaches)
WEDNESDAYS: 5 mile road run, 7mph pace
THURSDAYS: “Slow intervals”, measuring pulse to keep aerobic, 200m intervals, pacing at 1:25-1:30 and then after each 1:25-1:30 200m lap I do a 200m lap for 4:00 to ease down, then into another faster interval, and so on for 3-4 miles
FRIDAYS: 2 Mile run - recov day
SATURDAYS: 3 mile Cross Country course race (20 minute time)
SUNDAYS: Rest from running
And for lifting I do my own version of WS4SB:
DAY 1: Max Upper Body
DAY 2: Supplemental lift for Lower body (kinda hard on legs with running)
DAY 3: Full-body
Given this plan should I be able to lose these 10lbs on my gut? (Just want to get back down to “looking” as fit as I can perform)
