Haha, appricate the nice words. It was alot of sweat and hard work as for the a more detailed explination of what i did
I actually started really getting my ass into gear ready for my trip this yearat the start of august
Diet: I never really dieted as such. what i did is really looked at the macros of the food i was eating and tried for a 45% protien 35% carbs and a 5% fat for the first two months eating about 300 - 400 cals a meal 6 times a day with the intention of increasing the speed of my metabolism. that seemed to work for me and didnt stick to it like gospel. if i felt super hungry i would eat more sporadically.
There was a couple of weeks there where i went of the rails a tad with the diet, but i didnt dwell and i just got straight back into it and pushed harder.
For the first 2 months Aug - late sept I did a combo of cardio and weights, high rep range weights with short breaks between sets, as for the cardio it was nothing crazy just shooting basketball hoops 20mins before and 20mins after) I have not jumped of a treadmill since i started and quite frankly i hate cardio
from late sept to now i am doing weights 6 times a weeks 6 - 8 rep range and i dont do any cardio anymore
Supps: I take creatine, BCAA, glutamine and jack3d
My aim of trying to lose weight this time was not to destroy a treadmill and drop the kilos but to put on some muscle mass to help increase my metabolism, i have been this weight before a couple of times but last time i did it i was on thermogenics and i lost a heap of muscle and looked ill as opposed to fit.
thus why i think i am now able just to rely on good eating and weights and im still losing the fat. I have actually gotten stronger and i feel i have put on some size and from my calculation i have lost about 15 of body fat but as you can see i have only lost 12 or so kgs so hopefully some of that 3kgs is muscle i also changed the macros of my diet to a more reasonable 40% pro, 40% carbs 20% fat
If you have any more questions please dont hes. to ask
