It may be a bit contrarion of me, but I don't find fats filling at all; they're so calorically dense that you can't really eat much in comparison with complex carbs.

Yeah that's true. GN's suggestion is also a good one. Do check out fake meats like Fry's too because you don't actually need to cook them, so reheating is not a major issue.

I will say that if you're on a caloric deficit then theoretically saturated fats shouldn't be too much of a health concern (at least in relation to heart disease) as most of the risk factors drop when you're losing weight, no matter what you're eating.

I def wouldn't go on a 500 deficit directly, more like 200 to start. Your weight loss will eventually stall before you hit your goal weight unless you decrease calories further. How low calories do you think you can manage?

Sub 2000 calories a day is not fun nor particularly good for your physical and mental well being. Studying (if you are in school) and training will most likely suck, from my experience with cutting. But its your choice.

 

What would be the reason for stalling? My metabolism will adjust to it? 200 seems so little.

Your metabolism will adjust, because of among other factors:

 

1) As you lose weight your maintenance calories goes down. A lighter person burns less calories. You will lose weight until whatever calories you are eating is no longer a deficit. So your deficit gradually becomes smaller, inevitably halting the rate of weight loss, unless you adjust calories down further.

 

2) Less calories in means (generally and roughly speaking) less calories out. Your NEAT decreases with lower calories, by for instance, less heat generation, less spontaneous movement and activity, presumably less calorie burning training, etc...

500 x7 = 3500 is 1 lb per week though, seems really little compared to overall calorie demand. 200 deficit is less than half a lb. 

 

Ended up getting a 3.5 lb pork butt, 4 lbs of boneless/skinless chicken, 3 lbs of cod, 2 lbs of shrimp. Baby spinach, spring mix. Sweet potatoes. Cottage cheese, guacamole. Liquid egg whites. Apples, oranges, blueberries. Celery/carrot sticks, baby carrots. Oatmeal, almond milk. Wild rice, quinoa. 

 

Had the butcher cut the chicken breast into strips, gonna fry it with pam spray, season with turmeric/paprika/salt, and eat it with salad. Got a bottle of really nice balsamic vinegar. Gonna cook the rice and quinoa in bulk and reheat. Carrots/celery with guac/cottage cheese for snack. Oatmeal with milk and blueberries for breakfast.

Faster weight loss comes with the cost of more muscle and strength lost, and the other negatives that comes with cutting.

I'd rather take it slow and easy since I used to train for strength, but I guess its ultimately preference or dependent on what goals you have.

post #56287 of 57263
Yeah if you just want to lose 5-10lbs in a short time go for it, but otherwise listen to conception is on this one.
post #56288 of 57263

yea i just wanna stop looking skinnyfat when warm weather rolls around.

post #56289 of 57263

Don't go more than 500, unless you're okay with losing a big chunk of what you worked for.

 

Make sure to keep lifting through the cut as well.

post #56290 of 57263
If you're just looking to drop a little fat then in all honesty I'd keep cals the same and just train more. Add some complexes, decrease rest time, play ball on your rest days. That kind of stuff.

This used to be true, especially during the steroid boom of the 1980s, but it's less applicable now. Not naive enough to think the guys are all natty now, but there's a lot more athletic looking guys on the roster now compared to the days of Dino Bravo and Hulk Hogan:









Unless you were talking about the average fan, in which case, yes, fat AF.

Also, it's tough to watch a video of your squats from a side view when you've got a large ass, barrel chest, and you've got that belly full of air.
post #56295 of 57263

All the fucking stimulants in the world and I'm still not able to focus worth a damn at the gym. Instant 5% performance loss. WHY YOU DO THIS TO ME, BRAIN?

 

@APK I don't follow WWE so I pretty much know of Chris Jericho and John Cena. Chris Jericho is fat. Cena is aesthetically unpleasant because of how big he is. Didn't know smaller dudes existed.
