    Thanks bro. 206lbs fasted, but really looking bad around the midsection. Very hard to gauge my bodyfat as I hold so much in that area but not much elsewhere... guesstimating 16%, possibly higher. Ugh.

    Your a lot better off than I am. I just cant seem to get into it with the holidays coming up, training yes but diet is 50/50.

    Keep it up bro, slow and steady.

    Nice workout, like GVT but not lol.

    I feel you Gbrice, I look like i have sub10% bf everywhere on my body, except my gut. I will never understand how I can have protruding veins on all my extremities, yet a gut that won't quit.

    Were you ever very overweight/obese?

I am trying to find any reading online about this but it seems take out of thin air, IMHO!

    Same here bro. Training is on point, diet isn't terrible (but has been as of late), but is just kind of 'blah'. I'm sort of burned out on it tbh. But, as long as I'm not binging and eating junk (which I'm not), I feel ok.

    lol, exactly. It's my hybrid HIT/GVT routine. I used to say you can't mix high volume and high intensity. I'm now calling bullshit on myself.

    Right!? Same here... veins were popping today all throughout my delts, but lift up that shirt and WATCH OUT!!! Fatso is in the house. I do have a protruding gut, almost a distended belly look, but even worse is my lower back/hips... that's definitely my bad spot.

    Yep (which I know explains a lot). From about 18 to 33 (with the exception of a few brief 'rebounds'), I averaged 255lbs and mid 30's bodyfat at 5'10. Check it out:

    lol, it sounds you guys are waiting for/expecting me to school DPTUK, but tbh I like some of his thoughts. I'll elaborate (and refute when necessary) below:

    My fat was maxed out at 130g/day which at some point I decided was in fact too high (for me) and dropped to around 110g. Protein remained consistent at 200-225g.

    Quote Originally Posted by DPTUK View Post

    Now I know what you are thinking, holy shit that's too low and I will lose muscle blah blah blah......BUT
    When I run my carb cycle, I run 3 straight days (my no carb days) at around 1600 calories, so 1450 isn't far off the mark for me really. I have an incessantly slow metabolism and, aside from the gym, a rather sedentary lifestyle, so my caloric requirements are relatively low. So, I'm still with you...

    Quote Originally Posted by DPTUK View Post

    So it would look like this:

    Monday 1450 cals (180p 70f 25c)
    Tuesday 1450 cals (180p 70f 25c)
    Wednesday 1450 cals (180p 70f, 25c)

    .....now by this point you should be beginning to feel like shit, this is leptin playing round saying yo I am about to getting to freak mode here u better feed me....


    Quote Originally Posted by DPTUK View Post
    Now at this point people will struggle on with 2 or 3 more days on keto until the refeed and carb up day....this is a big mistake in my opinion (based on my experience)
    I understand why you may have felt it wasn't optimal for you, but I'm curious as to why you'd call it a "mistake" when the goal (for most) would be to achieve full blow ketosis...?

    Quote Originally Posted by DPTUK View Post
    ....right at this point you stick in the Oatmeal but remember this is not a massive carb up or refeed day its just a mini emergency control one just saying to leptin and your body yo buddy its all cool don't freak the carb police are on the way..


    So Thursday its gonna look like this (also at this point you dropping the fats)

    Thursday: 180p, 150c 50f for 2000 cals or so etc

    Friday & Saturday:

    1450 cals, 180p 70f, 25c

    Sunday: Proper carb up and refeed day:

    180p, 300c, 70f etc


    ........my actually macro numbers are irrelevant you can adjust that to your TDEE etc but the principle is what I am trying to get at.

    You take your body to freak mode and at the point of freak mode (usually its about day 3 on keto) you help it out just a little so it doesn't actually freak....that's the whole idea.

    Peace
    I kind of like it. It's a quasi-carb cycle in a way. I wouldn't call it a keto diet since we'd be ingesting carbs right at the onset of ketosis, but as a low-carb regimen to restrict calories without (much) muscle wasting, I think it's a decent layout tbh.

    Great job GB. I've been meaning to ask what bodyfat% were you at in the after pics? Any loose skin issues in mid section? This is bad for me. Had 52" waist now 37". Plus I'm 48 which does not help.

    In the after pics, I was ~9%. Wish I was even close to that now, lol!

    Yes, definitely a loose skin issue, mainly my lower abdominal area. I'm afraid surgery would be my only option; I had hanging skin even at 9% BF, which was depressing as fcuk.

    52" to 37" though... wow... very commendable. I was 42" at my worst, 32ish at my best. Currently in 34's although I don't see how it's even possible. 36" would probably feel much more comfortable.

    Wow 9%. Don't think I'll get that low. I'd be happy 13-14% and try to maintain it. I'm probably in same boat as far as surgery. I would do it but don't want to go 6 months without training.

    Thanks

    Same here. I have 2 hernias probably just waiting to burst, but I refuse to get surgery because I don't want to be out of commission.

Not to make excuses, but this has been a fcked up year for me and my family, making this (diet, etc) extremely difficult to focus on and/or prioritize. I'm down, but don't count me out. 2014 is my year!!

    Well, it impacts you as much as you'll allow it I suppose. As you know, this is a very selfish sport, so unless you plan to step on stage (I don't), you have to weigh out what's really worth giving up for it. Time, dinners with family, good times with friends (usually involving eating and drinking) etc. It's a balancing act for sure, but I've decided to prioritize family as my only real goal in all of this is longevity, and looking good for as long as I can. Vanity really.

Not to make excuses, but this has been a fcked up year for me and my family, making this (diet, etc) extremely difficult to focus on and/or prioritize. I'm down, but don't count me out. 2014 is my year!!
    Need motivation. Get a hot girl friend. J/K. Good luck man I know you can do it.
