Its time for a change. I’ve been letting myself go for the last year and I am disgusted with myself. As someone who was always the fat kid it was a shocker when I lost around 55lbs 3 years ago. People do treat you differently and that had a profound effect on me.
Well fast forward three years and between then and now I’ve competed in powerlifting, put on a significant amount of muscle (I lost lost of whatever muscle I had during my first cut) and a significant amount of fat going from about 200 to 240. I went from a 44 size pant to a 36 and today i’m up to a loose 42.
I’ve rationalized myself fat and lazy and I am at my wits end. I don’t feel sorry for myself. First it was school, then graduation, then grad parties, then summer, and then moving, then my new job, and its all BULLSHIT. I AM ANGRY. Not because I am fat but because I lied to myself for so long.
Well now its time to take the plunge and get my life back on track.
Current stats - 240lbs 5’6.5
I will be following the V-Diet to a T. I will be following the “Intermediate” workout plan.
I am still in the planning phase but at the moment my purchase is looking like:
13 tubs of Metabolic Drive
2 HOT-ROX Extreme
1 Natty PB
1 Fiber Choice Tablets
1 Bag Milled Flax Seed
and Flintstones Complete Daily Vitamins cause I dread taking nasty daily vitamins.
I was also thinking about getting 2 bottles of BCAA’s but wasn’t sure if it was worth getting.
I plan on using the “Over 35lbs” calculations and using my 240lb starting BW my calories are:
Lifting Day: 1596.96 = 1600 cals
Non Lifting Day: 1330.8 = 1300 cals
Kinda seems low though…
working out the total caloric intake my non lifting day should look like this:
Flameout - 4 caps - 52 cals
Natty PB - 1 serving - 190 cals
Flax Seed - 2 Servings - 120 cals
Fiber Choice - 4 tabs - 32 cals
Metabolic Drive - 4 Shakes - 880 cals
takes me up to: 1274 cals and 25g fiber
Thats within the 50 cal +/- range but I could add 1 extra scoop for an extra shake and remove 2 fiber choice tablets which puts me at: 1368 cals and 25g fiber
For my workout days I would just add 1 serving of Surge which should take me to: 1614 and 1708 cals respectively (depending on 4 vs 4.5 shakes per day).
So how does that look to you guys and gals? Any advice or comments are appreciated.
