following: HeavyWeightHEMI's own diet
performance: losing 8.4 lb a week
This is my second major attempt at weight loss. In 2003 I got in to bodybuilding and lost 90 pounds in 7 months and kept it off for 3-4 years. I gained it all back plus more up to 330 at my most. See my pics for what I use to look like, what I blew up to and were I'm at currently.
My diet is simple calorie counting with a max calories of 1500. I maintain sanity by having a cheat day or two on the weekends and try to go no higher than 2000 if possible. I am not sticking to any particular diet plan just know the rules of 3500 cal equals a pound. And eating healthier food all around. I have been going to the gym 6 days a week with 30-45 of cardio every time I go followed 45 minutes of weight lifting and lots of water.
This time around I understand the whole concept behind calorie counting. Sticking to these rules alone I should be able to maintain my goal when I reach it. None of this would be possible if I didn't have the android app, makes counting so much easier. No way I would have the time to document all the calories I do now. Great tool.
Enjoy the ride!
