know this sounds silly, especially when you look at a video of me. But my BF is just not healthy for me, and I want to lose some of it to a desired BF that I am happy with. No cutting bulking nonsense, I want to lose it slowly once, then eat healthy and right from then on and gain LBM.
Age - 16 (17 next month)
Height - 6ft / 6ft 1
Weight - 187-190 mid-day
I don't have any accurate BF measurements, but I have a scale at home that measures Bodyfat with shockwave that it sends through your body….. lol it was some scale from costco.
My BF on scale:
When im around 187 it says (27%)
When im 183ish it says (25%)
Pics: When would you like pics? In the morning after sleep? Or in mid-day?
I have discussed this with Eric, and got my mentality right. He opened my eyes to understand what I really want to do, and how to say it because the way I explained it to him was ridiculous.
I don’t want to do any “yo-yo dieting”. Straight up slow BF loss, while maintaining muscle, or if not gaining more muscle. I won’t be hopping on a scale at all during the fat loss, just by visualization. However, a suggestion by Eric was to continue on doing my strength routine, and introduce conditioning. I plan on fully doing that, but I want to get a diet set along with that to help body fat loss as well as some cardio.
What would a diet look like to help? I will be asking tons of questions if you don’t mind, but here is my current diet. My diet right now is not set, as I wanted to gain weight so I ate whatever. Here is a general idea though of what I would eat.
4 eggs ( I normally mix the bread into the egg, tastes very good)
4 pieces of bread (whole wheat, or rye)
2-3 Hours Later
1 Sandwich (4 pieces of bread, whole wheat or rye)
Eggs (in sandwhiches)
2-3 Hours Later
Spaghetti, Shepards Pie, anything like that to eat. Don’t measure it here, but it’s usually a lot.
2-3 Hours Later
Tuna (in sandwiches)
2-3 Hours Later (Dinner)
Whatever there is to eat. No idea what I can put here.
Nothing before bed.
My diet is okay, pretty inconsistent, hardly have any vegetables anymore, or fruit. I realize I need to add those in badly. I will usually have some mixed nuts before a workout each day, sometimes I will have blueberries as well.
A meal I make once in a while is:
1 cup oats
2 scoops protein powder
My eating is okay. I need to really set something though and get going here. No rush though, I am going to start dieting in February. I just have a bunch of questions that I would like to get down, and answered so I can get a grasp on this.
I don’t eat anything sugary, not because I am scared of weight gain, but because of acne. If I could have stuff sugary, I would probably still wouldn’t eat anything other than ice cream. I also don’t drink milk much anymore, only time I would have milk is when I make the “Meal once in a while”
How will my routine change? When will I do cardio, how much of it, and what type? Would I be doing cardio after my workouts, or strictly on off-days, with Thursday not counted because I squat on Friday. Would I be doing running? Or a steady pace cardio for an hour or two? Or 30minutes?
Would I be doing more isolation lifts, or can I stick with compound lifts?
How will my diet change as well? I would love some help with a diet please.
Do I have to track everything and make sure I hit a certain amount of fats/carbs/proteins each day?
How will serving sizes work as well?
Really appreciate all the help!
