Help a fatty out -- Progress thread I guess

So I've always been the fat kid, triple chin, whole thing. First year of college was about 4 years ago, and I lost a ton of baby weight just by cutting back on snacking and eating crap food. It wasn't until a few months ago that I started to work out and try to get in better shape for real.

So far, my routine has been pretty unorganized. This is what I try to stick to:

First day
Biceps - Chest - Abs (3 workouts each, 10-15 reps, 3 sets each)

Second day
Triceps - Back - Shoulders (3 workouts each, 10-15 reps, 3 sets each)

Third day
Legs - 30 min cardio

Fourth day
Rest

Repeat



Hasn't been until these past two weeks where I've incorporated cardio everyday. My diet has also been pretty unorganized. I watch what I eat for the most part, but as a college student being on campus all day, I always get hungry, and I'm always getting food. Most of the time its a Cliff bar for a snack, and if I haven't brought my own food, I usually try to grab subway. Regardless, I want a more concrete diet. I did some shopping today, picked up 100% whole wheat bread, some shredded chicken, lettuce mix for salads, low fat yogurt, and some trail mix. I'm not looking to get huge/ripped, right now I really want to burn my belly fat, but I'd like to build muscle along the way (I know its difficult and confusing for the body). I know my routine isn't cutting it for me anymore, so I'm looking for as much input as possible, making a better schedule, and sticking to it 100%.

Excuse the farmer's tan and lack of shape. First two pics are from around September or October I believe. Last two pics are from tonight.


So yea. Help me kick my ass into high, efficient gear. Please and thank you fellas.

this is more due to food choices / years of habit. it can be fixed.

Most of the time its a Cliff bar for a snack, and if I haven't brought my own food, I usually try to grab subway. Regardless, I want a more concrete diet. I did some shopping today, picked up 100% whole wheat bread, some shredded chicken, lettuce mix for salads, low fat yogurt, and some trail mix.

if you are dedicated to this, you should post a daily food log with rough quantities at minimum. I can help tell you if the food is doing you favors or not.

I'm not looking to get huge/ripped, right now I really want to burn my belly fat, but I'd like to build muscle along the way (I know its difficult and confusing for the body).

you aren't going to wake up one morning and be huge. It takes years of dedicated lifting & eating to get to that point. Lifting heavy (like discussed in the thread that solly linked) will only help your goals.

I know my routine isn't cutting it for me anymore, so I'm looking for as much input as possible, making a better schedule, and sticking to it 100%.
Have you read this: http://forum.e46fanatics.com/showthread.php?t=974441

I wrote it as a good precursor for discussion. I can help explain anything that is confusing

Damn, unfortunately lol. I'm just saying my ideal objective is. I know guys who don't care to do cardio and just lift as much as possible, I don't want that lol.


Looks like I have some reading to do though. Thanks

Is it counterproductive to do cardio right after a good lifting session? I've been reading and hearing mixed answers

Also, what is your guys' last meal of the day typically contain? I don't fall asleep until about 1 every night and I always get a massive hunger around midnight.

what is your goal with the cardio? to be better at cardio? otherwise its pointless imo

First off, if you are asking because you've read carbs are bad before bed... yeah that's just dumb. If you are hungry, and you are eating clean, healthy food (vegetables, meats, healthy fats, fruit/potatoes in that order of importance) then eat, your body is telling you something. That hunger could also be because you've been spiking your insulin all day with bad choices too. (pasta, bread, sugar/starch based anything off the shelf).. I don't know your diet but that stuff will fill you up then make you very very hungry later on. Midnight could just be that time after your previous meal where that happens.

Simply : calories spent exercising > calories in from food.

Eat a gram of protein for each pound you weigh and stay away from soda, alcohol, and junk food.

Water, chicken, beans, rice, vegetables.

there's a lot more meat options than chicken breast prime rib, ground, tenderloin, ribeye, point cut for beef... breast, thighs, split, whole for chickens & turkeys, lamb, duck, bison, shrimp, any sort of wild fish, shellfish, pork shoulder/baby back ribs/side bacon/back bacon/regular bacon/chop ... list goes on Healthy living can be very delicious!

True, BUT it's also the cheapest price point (..where meat is concerned) so you can eat MORE for your money.....and eating big is the ONLY way to get big. For those on a limited budget, prime rib, duck, bison, etc. are not viable options. Hell, a 12oz pack of bacon is often priced higher than 3 chicken breasts.

I think i'm in the minority where I would rather be of average size and eating well than big and living off chicken & rice lol. But good point, I often never factor cost into eating healthy... I sacrifice elsewhere personally

For me locally, pork is the cheapest ($20 for a 5lb bone in shoulder for example), followed by beef (depending on cut of course), then chicken. 2 lbs of bnls sknls chicken breast is $22 at the grocery store, where 2lbs of ground beef is $10. Even 2lb of a decent cut of ribeye, the most expensive steak cut, is $30.

In my mind everything I listed minus the more exotic cuts (bison, duck, lamb) and prepackaged bacon is really affordable. You get more calories out of fattier cuts too

I think you should re-word that statement. All of it can be considered eating "healthy" or eating well (..eating lots of chicken, greens, nuts, etc. is just as healthy as an elaborately cooked healthy meal; it's a matter of fanciful presentation). What I think you meant was the cost of "variety".

P.S. Not everybody wants fattier meats. I think you just a higher than average fat consumption.

Yes I will reword that to variety you are correct.

That being said, without variety I wouldn't eat healthy. I've tried countless times to eat standard bodybuilding diet 90% of the time, and it isn't for me. Luckily there's plenty of options for all of us
