    One Month of Cutting (before and after)

    I am 5'11", 18 years old

    The first 2 pictures were taken on 6-22, I weighed approximately 230 pounds.

    The last three were taken today (7-30) at 208 pounds

    I am currently doing 1 hr of cardio (@ 70% max HR), usually in the morning on an empty stomach 6-7 days/wk. I started taking ECA last thursday (7-22) and it has definately helped me out a lot. I am on a low carb lifestyle and I hardly ever consume more than 20-30 g/day.

    I'd like to hear some estimates on my BF%. I've always been overweight and my goal is to get down to 10% for once in my life. After that, I pretty much only want that "beach body" look. I am not really interested in steroids or packing on the pounds....but who knows, that may change someday.

    Any and all input is wanted.

    You Should Be Proud of Yourself - It obviously took some discipline to make such noticable results. Keep that discipline up, and there is no telling what you will look like in a year!

    Thanks for the support and kind words everyone. I had my first cheat day yesterday and am feeling kinda guilty (yet energized). The whole concept is still new to me, so I am just kinda taking it as it goes. I can tell that I am holding a lot more water. Hopefully my metabolism will be back where it was by Monday.

    Does anyone have a BF% guess? I think I am somewhere in the teens.

    I'd say you are at 20% bodyfat evenly.

    Your progress isn't bad... continue to read the board.. it has a wealth of info.

    Keep at it

    great job! How about just buying a scale with an electronic BF measurement? They're supposed to be accurate to around 1-3% and that way you can make sure you're dropping fat not muscle.

    You might want to start upping the anaerobic exercise like weightlifting or sprinting, in addition to the cardio. Your body is adapting to the cardio and I think you can keep up the progress better by throwing in some more intense exercise. Basically take your HR up to around 170-180 (220-age x 85-90%) for very short period initially (30sec to 1 minute), then let it recover for 3-5x as long, then repeat 5-8x. This should really get your metabolism going without losing muscle.

    nice job so far bro, and no, those electronic BF measuring tools are junk, if you can't get into the water tank measurer, go for the 7 point caliper test, its a lot closer than the electronic ones.

    I agree about the accuracy but the point is whether the body fat percentage is going down not whether it's exact. My electronic scale measures me at 8%, calipers at 6% and an electronic test which sends current through your body (doctor has it in his office) and calibrates by computer with age, etc. measures me at 5%. So what if it's off by 2-3?. If he's at 20%+ body fat,then he'll see the loss.

    But hell, if he doesn't mind using the calipers, they'd be the best approach.

    Definately don't buy a bf% scales. the vast majority of them are fukkin awful. 7-point is the only way to go.
