performance: gaining 2.5 lb a week
Mid 20s, had been steadily losing weight for over 2 years by dieting and very basic exercises (1-2 a week, some weeks 0). This was until last April when I started training like a madman and watching my diet more closely. I also research health & fitness alot so gaining knowledge has helped me a whole lot. I encourage anyone to do it too.
My long term weight history:
-2010 Jan: 215lbs
-2011 Jan: 190lbs (~25 lbs fat loss)
-2012 Jan: 180lbs (~11 lbs fat loss, ~1 lbs muscle gains)
-2012 May: 175lbs (~8 lbs fat loss , ~3 lbs newbie muscle gains)
-2012 Aug: 164lbs (~16 lbs fat loss, ~5 lbs muscle gains)
-2012 Sept: 159lbs (~7 lbs fat loss, ~2 lbs muscle gains)
-2013 Jan: 164lbs (~2 lbs fat gain, ~3 lbs muscle gains)
For the past 5 months (as of September), I have been going to the gym (lifting weights, HIIT & endurance cardio) 4-6 times a week. I have a fairly intense body building program, which includes training ALL muscles, stretching a lot, sleeping longer for muscle recovery & eating right for maximum performance in the gym. Also being more active in all aspects of life and participating in sports e.g. soccer and ultimate.
Always improving my eating habits. Fat loss is happening, but not as fast as I would have hoped (given how much effort is being put into it). Decided to start tracking calories once in a while in a comprehensive manner using this website: Low Fat (30%), Low Carb (30%), High Protein (40%).
Want that lean & mean look, and I also want to become somewhat of a guru in health & fitness. Still got some way to go to burn off the excess fat. Probably another 10-15 lbs of fat left (to get under 10% body fat). Gotta keep it up!
