Can someone tell me what are good supplements for losing BF/Weight? I am concentrating mostly on fat loss while still doing very minimal lifting. Also what are good cardio tips you are all willing to give aside of running / push ups / sit ups and swimming (since i cannot swim)
Sound nutrition first and foremost along with any satisfactory weight training program will set you up for good body composition changes.
My diet… a lot of people ask me that… I am not sure I have a ‘diet’ I eat the samething everyday… Coco Pebbles Cereal in the morning, a Bananna & Orange Juice, then for dinner I eat Fish & Vegetables or Chicken & Vegetables, vapored. Then at night a Piece of bread with tomato in it =P
Is that good or am I retarted?
I’m afraid you’re retarded. hahah do those burpee’s we were talkin about. and i told you HOT-ROX would do well.
I hate you Blaze, my arms are on fire.
hahah blaze…fire…get the pun? anyhoo, how about that 4 month long pistol you said you’d do?
In due time my friend… in due time…
Now eat your, as you described it, “half baby leg sized of bread covered in tomatoes” and stop complaining. xD
Dude… do not post about the baby-leg sized bread on this thread.
oops. i mean…your macho 1.9lb hamburger smothered in cheese! looks around nervously
He’s lost over 30 lbs already. It’s not nutritionally great, but he still has the energy to run miles at a time and do sets of burpees, and he’s on a fat burner already. I’ve been kinda advising him on weightlifting, but if you know a good diet scheme, please show it. Diets aren’t my forte…
He may have lost 30lbs but it’s still a shitty diet. TsNod, read the stickies and learn about nutrition. Especially read the Berardi articles. Blaze, if you don’t know, don’t answer. That just confuses people.
Alright, I’ll check out that article today before I eat anything, I just woke up so I’ll do that right now. I know my ‘diet’ has not been the best in the world. I just hope that reading this will finally allow me to understand the concept of dieting rather than just looking at words and still have no idea what to do.
Hey bmitch / stuward I am currently reading on the ‘t-dawg’ diet, supposedly it is for people who are starting off heavy, which I consider myself to be @ 215LBS since I do carry quite a bit of fat in my body, if you all could give me a second say on it, the link is :
Thanks a lot!
you need to find a diet that is going to not only support fat loss, but also support muscle mass maintenance.
T-Dawg 2.0 is a great choice for someone like you. (I was in the same boat a couple years ago)
You also need to lift heavy while dieting to maintain muscle mass. Cardio is important when trying to lose fat, but diet and lifting are more so, in my experience. i didn’t have to start adding cardio to lose until i was below 15% BF, and you are way over that.
Also, Blaze is a beginner too. it’s good to have a friend, whatever, but he is not one to take advice from. Would you learn a martial art from someone who has been studying for 6 weeks? Would you take a class taught by a 2nd grader?
Blaze, you should know better, now stop giving advice you can’t give.
So what is the best way to reduce BF then? And how do I measure what I am at?
He’s lost over 30 lbs already. It’s not nutritionally great, but he still has the energy to run miles at a time and do sets of burpees, and he’s on hydroxycut already. I’ve been kinda advising him on weightlifting, but if you know a good diet scheme, please show it. Diets aren’t my forte…
Okay, but how much of that was muscle? I’m SURE he lost some muscle if he was barely eating any protein[/quote]
He seems to just want to get down to 8% body fat, regardless of losses. Then he wants to go up from there. As for giving advice Pozzska, He’s well aware of how long i’ve been training. Im just making sure he hits all the muscle groups and helping with terminology.
If one of you want to step up and replace me, go for it, I’m of the belief that having anyone who can tell him what exercises hit what groups is better than him have to learn it all on his own.
He wants to simply lose a lot of weight, while lifting some to retain some muscle mass. He already had his own cardio setup, I didn’t alter it except to have him do some burpees as well, and told him he should start doing pistols.
I miss anything TsNod?

That’s impossible. By the time he reached 8% BF he would look like a concentration camp inmate. If you try to lose weight without considering the quality of the loss you will lose muscle and fat together and the actual body fat% will not change. You just get skinnier and weaker. Then when you stop dieting the fat comes back and there is no supporting muscle to ofset it and your bf% just keeps going up. This is called yo-yo dieting.
To successful lose fat you must protect existing muscle and train heavy. A controlled nutrition and training plan is the only way to successfully lose fat and keep it off.
To the OP, the Big Dawg program you selected will achieve your aim. I recommend the big breakfast option.
Yeah… stuward… I just ate the big breakfast… I feel weird, lol, never had this much energy in the morning. I ate 4 eggs, veggies & lil bit of sausage since i had no ham. Im going to stick with the Dawg diet but i just need to get my ass to Publix and get some of the food I will be required to eat today.
You mentioned as well a controlled training program, should I stick to those HIIT’s you mentioned earlier? And what about lifting? Is that going to be a big part in losing the BF%?
No Blaze, hah, pistols… !
Virtually all successfull dieters eat breakfast every day. It’s key. And that energy will make you more active and reduce your apetite later in the day so you will be less likely to pick up an unplanned snack.
Lifting is indead a very big part of losing BF%. I beleive in your other thread The Dude recommended “Starting Strength” by Rippetoe. I second that. HIIT can be hard for a beginner so don’t overdue it. You may want to warm up to it.
