Newest_Newbies attempts to drop 100lbs by july

firstly a big thanks to cashman for his inspiration and a big thanks to origin (kev) for doing my test. i am allowed 2073 cals a day to lose weight (kev should confirm the % later). i will attempt about 3 hours of being active a day as ny job is quite sedentary (thanks for the word kev), my max fat burn is 98% at 155 bpm at which point i will burn 9.9 cals of fat and 1.5 cals of carbs.

well, i am off for a last weekend of being a fatty - on monday i will be a new person.

feel free to comment and kick my arse if i stray.

    ok today is sunday - had my last fatboy meal. now i am all ready for tomorrow, exercise bike is set up and my punchbag is sitting ready in the corner. i will be posting every evening with an outline of what i ate and what i did. 2073 cals a day mixed in with some cardio everyday and some toning weight training 3 times a week. need to invest in a body fat monitor so anyone with any suggestions of a good make and/or design let me know.

    100lbs by July----thats some going.
    I would suggest keeping them protein levels up, and doing some heavy compounds, ie deads, squats, benching, to keep as much muscle mass as possible. Remember, the more muscle you have the more it needs calorie/protein wise to survive so should help with the fat loss by causing more of a calorie deficit. Its gonna take a sterling effert mate, but it looks like you've got the right attitude. All the best.
    Get my origin test done on Saturday. I need to lose about 50lb so it looks like another fat bloke for the melting pot.

    thanks for the encouragement pete. yeah, i have been a fatty for a while and its got to the point where i needed some concrete facts so i went to get the test done. word of advice, if you are going to get the test done make sure you are ready to be pushed to the limit - kevs quite a good motivator. i suppose we could give each other support and tips when needed. all i need now is my heart rate monitor (arriving tomorrow) and me body fat monitor and away i go.

    No problem N.N. I'm sure we will be crossing common ground and be able to help each other. I train at the same gym as cashman so we are always swapping notes and thoughts. He's a knowledgeable, down to earth bro. As for a body fat monitor, go for the mechanical calipers above all else. (i use accu-measure calipers)www.accumeasurefitness.com or just do a search for accumeasure, they take a bit of getting used to but you only need to get an average off them. Electronic ones are totally inaccurate, and have too many variables. I'm aiming to go for about 2lbs a week so i try to ensure no muscle loss.
    Good luck anyway.

    thanks bro, i have invested in body fat monitors before and they do tend to give some inaccurate results. i will check the calipers you have suggested and see what suits me best. cashman has inspired me so far so say thanks to him from me. keep posting on here and let me know how you are getting on.

    laters bro

    finally started today. doing my eating this week and then supplementing with exercise from next week. according to the origin test i am allowed to eat 1526 carb cals a day and 346 fat cals a day. today i ate 1215.2 carb cals and 316.8 fat cals, which gives me a calorie deficit of 340. i used the theory of complex carbohydrate manipulation in that i didnt have any complex carbs after 6pm so we will see how this goes.

    next update tomorrow evening.

    Be very interested to see how you get on as that's a sh*tload of fat bro. Is there any way you can list your currents stats in terms of weight, BF%, etc?

    No thanks neccessary bro. Just stick with it. Keep protein High and plenty of low intensity cardio in there to avoid catabolysis.

    meticulously followed my nutrition plan again today. consumed a total of 1304 carb cals and 180 fat cals. this left me with a calorific deficit today of 388. the plan is to stick with my nutrition religously this week and supplement with cardio as of next week. this way i ease in rather than steaming in and giving up after 2 days. i have to say i am not really hungry these days so i reckon i can stick to this. and this log is really helping because i dont want to have to write tht i cheated and face the wrath of fellow mt members!!!!

    tune in tomorrow for more from "i'm in a fat body, get me out of here!!!"

    Going the right way NN. Keep it up. What are your portein levels at the moment, and what should be your calorie intake from the test?
    Had my test done and was told to eat another 1000Kcals a day because I was probably in starvation mode. Been doing that for over a week now and no weight gain at all (body obviously need it) Waist down 3/4 inch. It works.

    Try not to drop your cal intake too far. Sounds like you are at the right point. The most important thing I've found is regular low intensity exercise so while I add an extra 30 mins a day to each workout I also make sure I go for at least a 45 minute walk each day. The walking alone burns off over half a pound of fat a week.

    Keep it up fella.

    thanks for the comments lads. PETE my protein levels at the moment are at the bare minimum to keep my lean mass. i would say i consume about 200-250g protein a day. my sisters are getting married this summer and the main aim is just to lose the fat so i look good at the weddings. according to the test my calorie intake should be 1873 which considering i weigh 20 stones is apparently very low. sure thing CASHMAN, maximum i will drop the cal intake about 500 a day which will mean 1lb of fat gone through just the nutrition side a week. again my nutrition for the day will follow in a while.

    ok, today i ate 1440 carb cals and 185.4 fat cals. hence my grand total for the day is 1625.4 cals which gives me a calorific deficit today of 247.6. as i am adjusting my meals so i dont get bored the deficit is fluctuating but i am always looking to stay under the target. eating wise i cannot believe how easy this is - once i begin the exercise and weights this should be a doddle. i was however looking over a few articles which recommended some supplementation while training. would anyone out there be able to recommend anything. personally i am looking at a few of the **** products - anyone able to give me some advice.

    see you all again tomorrow for "big blubber"

    cool gecko, thanks very much
    i think the origin test enables me to know from the beginning the amount of cals i am allowed and also tells me the exact amounts of fat and carbs.
    with regards to the eca i think i might steer clear as i have tried before and had some serious side effects.
    i think i might use some of the **** products which dont contain any ephedrine, caffiene or aspirin
    ok thanks for the info, i will post again in a while with todays nutrition
    oh and by the way i have already managed to drop 2 lbs this week without even beginning my exercise

    stay tuned
