    Yea, UD 2.0 is definitely hardcore but I can handle it for 4 weeks, no sweat.
    i did it last year unfit with 7 weeks training so should smash with 18 weeks lol..


    the hardest part of ud 2.0 is the depletion workouts, the diet is not to bad.

    ^^ thanks buddy, and good to see you back!! Hopefully I'll get as lean (or leaner) as before, but carrying ~10lbs more LBM.

    ps - would you mind editing out the name above? Not a big deal really, but I'd like to maintain some form of anonymity.

    A little, lol. Won't be able to tell for another day or two... sort of a 'loading' phase. Xpel is pretty much herbal, right?

    Heh, typical. Diurex is a pretty tried and true diuretic... nothing fancy, $6 for 24 caplets. I'll let you know how it works out. Would be easier to judge if I were carrying (far) less bodyfat, but I'll have to work with what I have now.

    Why did you start a diuretic?

    Did a doc put you on this or just trying to cut water?

    Will that stuff make you drop water out of muscle as well? If so, what's the point?

    As far as I know, it's purpose is to expel 'excess' water, not to suck all the water out of your body. Through what mechanism(s) what's considered 'excess' is determined is beyond me.

    If you've mentioned this, sorry...do you take creatine? It's been a couple of weeks for me and I'm looking a bit bloated.

    Not when I'm cutting.

    No surprise you look/feel bloated, as creatine will most definitely increase water retention.

    Thanks. I'm debating whether it's worth it or not.

    What are your current goals?

    Creatine isn't going to make or break anything. I use it during mass-adding phases, but really only as 'insurance'. Definitely not a necessity IMO.

    I don't want to hijack your thread, but since you asked...

    I really don't cut or bulk, per say. 2 1/2 years ago, I was 6', 155lbs, 34" waist-textbook skinny-fat. I started lifting and eating for the first time in my life. Currently (51) I'm hitting 180
    lbs with a 33" waist. Slow, steady progress. Just thought the creatine might give me a new edge to get bigger, but muscle, not a gut. I'll keep it for a month and see what happens. Thanks again.

    Congrats on your progress!!!

    With the added water, creatine might give you that last extra rep or two... but yea, see how things go and keep us posted!

    DAY 61: Cardio, 60 mins (mix of HIIT/moderate steady state)

    Well, that's it!! Leaving for FL 6am tomorrow morning. Pic below was taken this morning. Not as lean as I'd like to be, but I've come a long way from ~2 months ago. The second pic is just my bad luck: somebody's last day at work today, and this is the spread the company made for them. FML!!!!

    You're looking lean man! I think your FL vacation will be a nice time off, your body will adjust to it, then BAM you hit it hard when you get back. I'm finding that the key to dieting is to constantly keep your body guessing.

    Getting..... bloated!! Still seeing 5 abs though (top 4, plus the top halves of both the bottom ones, makes 5 ). Haven't been doing too bad though... I went food shopping and bought some staples: cartoned egg whites, natty pb, almond milk, oats, etc. it's the damn alcohol more than anything else that's killing me!!

    Before weight lifting? Definitely not. Use weight training as part of your routine to lose bodyfat. If you had asked 'Yo GB, should I lose weight (bodyfat) before weight lifting to get big'? My answer would have been "yes, most definitely".

    Thx buddy. I'll be doing 3-4 weeks of catching up, which sucks because so far, I really don't feel I've done all that badly. Abs are fading nonetheless, and I see a visible increase in bodyfat. Crazy!

    Depends on your cardio. If you're doing moderate intensity, I'd say yes. High intensity/HIIT, 20-30 mins. If you can do more, God bless you; you're a better man than I am!
