Hey! New here. First post.
I am a 23 year old former athlete. I ran track, played basketball, tennis, and some club soccer. I worked out but only because most every sport required it. When I graduated HS, I weighed 180 pounds at 6 feet tall. Now, let’s fast forward 5 years. Still 6 feet tall but I am a sneaky 315. I wear a size 42 jeans and XXL t-shirts… I hate what I have let myself become.
I want to get in better shape. I would enjoy being back at my weight as a 17 year old senior but that is a long way away. I need to lose some weight. I want to do it, just like everyone in America, ASAP.
IDK if anyone has done this or played around with it but here is my idea. I don’t like the idea or using NO-Xplode or stuff like that… I don’t like stimulants. It makes me jittery. I plan on doing a sort of “fast” that isn’t fasting at all. I am only going to have 1 real mean a day; it doesn’t matter if it’s breakfast, lunch or dinner. For the other 2 traditional meals, I am just going to take 2 scoops of whey protein. I may eat some raw fruit throughout the day to avoid hunger pains. Also, I am going to be lifting weights. Nothing extremely hard or intense but I’m going to hit 3 major lifts (bench, power clean, dead lift) and have some auxiliary lifts thrown in (curls, lunges, lat pulls, ect.)
Can someone please give me some help on what to expect? I will provide updates on how it’s going.
