OK I've been dieting and lifting and even added some HIIT to get my fat butt not so fat anymore. I'm now down to 202 and fear going below the 200 lb mark. I want to lose the fat but I don't want to lose weight. Should I up my caloric intake again? I have been eating very healthy eating a lot of green vegetables eating salads and snacking healthy throughout the day. I was hoping I would lose fat and stay the same weight. I guess I'm losing a lot of fat or had a lot more than I thought I did.
When you lose fat you will lose weight, not unless you can some how manage to simultaneously drop FM while uping FFM.
My question is how much weight should I expect to gain monthly after I get as lean as I want. Which I HOPE isn't below 190 lbs. My goal is to get to 230 lbs but really chisselled. And if I keep dropping weight that goal is seeming harder and harder to reach although I don't mind if I get my wierd 7 and a half pack back! I gained the weight the wrong way yes im way bigger than i was but I put so much fat on my friends considered me fat!
I think I stated this before but the body is good when it comes to storing fat. You may think you will get lean @ 190# but you eventually get there and you come to find out you only got a tiny 4 pack. What's with your obsession w/ being lean above 200#? Franco Columbu was 5'5" was considered the worlds strongest man 2 time Mr. Olympia and < than 200#.
Theres ways of eating smart and stupid, by reading previous posts it seems that you would be in the catagory of eating stupid. That would include eating anything that gets within your vicinity whether it's micky d's FF or 3 chicken breasts with 4 potatoes. It's not hard to get nececcary protein and not turn into Andy Bolton.
I have heard stories of people gaining 2 lbs of muscle in a month!!! That sucks!!! but if thats the way I'll have to go I guess I'll suffer through it. Any insight would be greatly appreciated. That being said to gain roughly 25 lbs that would take a year. Crazy.
2lbs in a month? Those would be excellent gains.
