100lb DB presses are righteous..

How much do you weigh? I can do a set of 6-8 with 60-65 lbs @135lbs BW, but 100lbs is in a different league.

That is a very respectable goal, sir. Oh and happy birthday as well!

Planning on starting Leanagains soon and have some questions: I have my trip booked for Miami in early June, and I wanna get a bit slimmer by then. I am 5' 8", currently 158lbs, 13-15% bf. How much "lead time" should I give myself to start going on LG to get some decent results by June? Also, should daily caloric intake be higher, equal or lower than maintenance/BMR? I went through the LeanGains Guide and didnt come across it, merely that non-workout days have lower intake. Is there a general guideline on the macros for each meal (assuming 2 meal plan)? e.g. more protein for the first meal, more carbs post-workout, etc.?

Right now about 195ish. As much as I trying to lean out to 190, I still wish I was at 200 with some fat

Martin doesn't lay those out in his blog, but from what I gather it goes something like this:

Smaller deficit (possibly maintenance for recomp? not sure though) for lifting days, a big deficit for rest days.
High carbs & protein post-wo, low carbs and higher fat on rest days. I'd shift carbs to the post-workout meal and taper downward from there until starting the fast again.

How bad is it to have a big breakfast (waffles, eggs, home fries, toast, etc.) and then skip lunch?

Me too. That's a goal I'm trying to get to.

Compared to what? Meal frequency is inconsequential, proper macros are not.

Well, the thing is I usually just have cereal then I'm off to the office. I went out for breakfast with friends this morning and I'm not used to eating so much so early.

Oh, and for lunch I usually just have a ham & cheese.

Without knowing anything about your diet, whether or not you're training or have any goals such as gaining or fat loss, it is impossible to say. All I can say for sure is that you ingested some calories that will either be burned off or deposited in your tissues depending on your overall caloric intake and activity level.

^ I appreciate the help. I'm definitely not looking to gain. I could even stand to lose 3-5 pounds but it's not imperative. So, basically you're saying me skipping lunch just for today won't kill me?

I'll quote myself, b/c I'm an arrogant douche

^ Awesome. Just kind of scared I'll pig out later when I get off work.
