    I need help. I know many of you know me as the guy that hates his body. Well its not that I hate my body, but I just want to improve it, and fix it. I want to look as good on the outside as I feel on the inside.
    I has been a goal of mine to have a ripped physique. To want to look at myself in the mirror and smile, not shy away from it. I see so many of you on here and im extremely jealous. I want many of the bodies that you have.
    I have lost a total of 30lbs sense I began my training. icon_biggrin.gif (working out 6 times a week). But it is not good enough, 25lbs to go, goal time by summer (june 16th).
    What I need answered is, What do you do about working out? How did you aviod plateus? What about diet and eating. What food do you consiantly eat? And lastly, what about TREAT meals? How much is to much. I have strong cravings for food, and I eat it, but then i feel so guilty afterward.
    Thank you so much for reading, can you please help me?

    I can't help you too much for health and exercise stuff.

    I would just say you already have a preeeeeety hot body, it's not like you're fat or have an average body even. Plenty above average. What you're seeing here is the "finished product" of a lot of men. At your age they didn't look as good as you, most of them. So be fair on yourself and don't compare yourself to someone who has become an expert when they've had 10 years more to get there.

    For cravings.. all I can suggest is to eat something healthy first so that you're only "topping up" with junk. It's like the easiest method to limiting how much bad stuff gets in you because you don't have to stop yourself. You just get full and don't want to eat anymore.

    I'll leave the technical stuff to the gurus.

    It's called plain ole' Pushing Through. Push through the pain, the doubt - Find new limits. It hurts and sucks, but it's the only way to reclaim your body. I lost a hundred pounds many years ago, and it's all a matter of gritting your teeth and fucking going for it.

    @ the OP - I know this doesn't answer your question, but I gotta so you look great just the way you are. It's great that you want to continue to improve but don't discount all the progress you've made already!

    STOP

    Hold it there a second. Me thinks if you truly felt good on the inside then you would feel pretty damn good about your looks on the outside (with the mindset that physical improvement is possible). You are not fat or obese. You are an 18 year old guy who is muscled/stocky with extreme potential to become totally ripped. That right there should be enough to feel amazing about your outside looks!

    Do not obsess about deadlines or goals. Be willing to alter them as needed--do not be too hard on yourself either. I'd be happy as fuck if you flirted with me--you're hot!

    Give yourself time, and go easy on yourself! Stand in the mirror everyday naked and stare for five mins. repeating: "I'm hot as fuck. I'd fuck me." lol (This actually helps build self-confidence.) In my opinion, being psychologically sound with your outside body will help you out more in the long run than having a ripped body. Everyone hates something about their body and sees what others do not see--your self-critic might just bully you for something different when you become a ripped muscled hottie. Never underestimate the irrational parts of your mind.

    But as with me when I was your age, your "pre-myelinated prefrontal cortex" mind will probably not place much value on this kind of advice. icon_wink.gificon_razz.gif
