I've kinda beat you to it.
Started cleaning up my act in Dec. Weighed over 190 (heaviest reading I got was 196, or in our terms, 14stone).
Now 175 and stronger. Apparently I look bigger - people keep asking if i've bulked up. Must be those 3 sets of curls per week.
I also have a visible vein on my bicep, which is impressive when you consider my pasty white complexion.
I'm going to keep it up. Basically, I don't eat any crap. I carb up post work out and sometimes don't even do that. Depends how I feel. If I feel "depleted" I do a ridiculous carb up i.e. pizza etc - this happens around once per week and, interestingly, i'm always lighter the day after. I only do it if I genuinely feel depleted, though. It's as if my body is screaming for pizza.
I don't track what I eat, I just eat as much as I can whilst limiting "heavy" carbs (anything other than veg). Most meals are eggs or meat (or both) with veg. I purposely try and eat lots of fat. I choose fatty meat when I can, I use lots of butter whenever I can find an excuse, I eat all my egg yolks, I drizzle everything I can with olive oil, I take fish oil.
Protein, veg and fat, basically.
Supps are simply fish oil and normally there's a protein shake in and around the work out but, not always.
I fast between 5-7 hours every night
depending on how much sleep I get.
Other than just training more efficiently (sometimes, I even get out of breath during a session), this is all i've done. I'm going to keep doing this but add 2 conditioning days to my training. Would like to be 160 but ripped with my current strength.
I've noticed that my lower abs are pretty much visible now, but I still have lower back/love handle fat. I don't this happened the last time I got this lean, i'm sure lower abs were the last place to get lean.
