Final chub attack: is there light at the end?
I have been member here at the forum for a longer time now. Much learned from Lyle, and that has lead to my success until now - lost about 30 kg (lasted longer than I expected or hoped, but it is what it is).
Anyway, I am making this into my final cutting log in the hope that I will lose the last 8-10 kg of chub that I am carrying with the goal to get to 10-12% before I maintain for some time and start adding some muscle again.
Strategy: flexible dieting.
Time frame: I am giving myself time till June, that is 5 months. This means 1,5 to 2 kg per month fat loss. This should be doable at the caloric level and activity I planning.
Nutrition: 2000-2500 cal daily. 200 g protein as a goal, the rest carbs and fats, wherever they fall, as I have noticed that this really does not make any difference.
Current health: Couldn't be better. Last blood work was perfect - kidney, liver, heart, lung function optimal, hormone function perfect (thyroid including TSH, ft3 and ft4 in normal range, total test at 891 ng/dl). I feel very tired on some days, but the fact that this is instantly eliminated in one day of refeeding leads me to conclude that it is just a function of caloric deficit, so I will just go with it.
NEAT Activity: I am averaging 15.000 steps a day (OMRON pedometer).
Weight training: 3 heavy weight sessions a week, reduced volume, high intensity.
Supplements: fish oil, vitamin D, multivitamin, magnesium citrate.
Height: 188 cm (6,2 feet)
Weight: 92-93 kg
BF: 20% according to latest estimate.
Here is a pic of the current state:
I will be updating this log on regular basis, and need your support guys.
