Default My quest to being lean again.

My name is douglas, i am 27 220lbs about 71 inches tall. My goal is to either weigh 200lbs or have a 15% body fat using the Marine Corp way of checking body fat. I will start posting my workouts Monday and my food log.

Welcome, Douglas. Your goals are totally achievable. What's your dietary and training approach?

Dietary

Appreciate it Arien. My dietary approach is basically to restrict as many calories as possible with out hindering my work outs. I am also just overhaulin what i eat and how much i eat in one sitting. For instance today i had half a cup of oatmeal with a bannana for breakfest. For a pre work out i supplemented a protein shake. For my lunch/snack i have turkey sandwich with 1 slice of bread and american cheese with mustard. Later on will eat my celery and dip it in a table spoon of peanut butter. For dinner i plan on eating 2 talipia fillets and maybe a small amout of wheat rice.

Training

Arien this morning i ran 4 miles slow pace. At 12:00 i plan on working out my chest lighter weight with 15 to 10 reps prob 3 sets. When i do around 4 to 5 excercises i most likely will jump on the treadmill and do sprints at 10mph for 2 miles with rest in between quarter miles.

Douglas: I'd read Lyle McDonald and Markin Berhkan -- both of them have lots of free material to read.

Quick feedback:

1) More protein. I assume you want to maintain lean mass and drop fat. Protein is protein sparing -- you need more of it. Protein will also help with hunger, etc. Aim for about 170g protein (lean mass in g)
2) I'd recommend tracking total calories and total protein intake for a while. Weighing and measuring is a PITA, but essential to know what's going in. Aim for about 2500 calories/day (cutting about 500 calories/day off maintenance)
3) I'd prefer a simple whole body approach to weight training: Starting Strength, for example, three x week.
4) weight training + running + sprinting on caloric deprivation will hit you hard. I'd recommend starting with walking as your primary cardio method, and only add additional work in as you prove it's not killing strength...

I will check them both out. I appreciate the pointers i most def need to supplement more protein. How many shakes do you suggest? I am thinking about 3? Unfortuantly due to the size of my gym i find it easier to work 1 body part a day. I am stationed here in Yuma Arizona and the gym is way crowded due to the heat outside not many people are working out in this heat. I plan on doing full body work outs once it cools down a bit. As for walking for cardio i dont think thats for me, considering i am a Marine and walking does fly in this cult lol.. Today i just wanted to hit cardio a little more then usual. Tomomorow i plan on doing a hike called telegraph pass its challenging and should keep my heart rate going pretty good!
