Nicobx15 saidI lost 18lbs in 2 months..simply by following the abs diet. (and that was with minimal exercise)
with a decent work out and you will see great results!
My statement still remains. Don't spread false hope, there is no Abs diet. Eat right, exercise according to the results you desire and you will see results. Any deviation will not yield you your results and will most likely result in you posting here about "getting abs" where Chucky will then embarrass you so hard that you probably won't post again.
Take my advice, re-evaluate what you want (lean muscle, lower body fat comp, total body trim, etc...) and develop a workout and a diet around the goals of which "getting abs" isn't good enough.
LOL!!! Thanks for being a fan!
"Abs" are from low body fat...as I say about 8 times a week. You can be big and lean and have great abs, or you can be tiny with a pot gut. It's all about composition. There is no diet in the sense that one starts and doesn't stick with it. To become healthy and fit, it's about an ongoing LIFESTYLE, coming to like yourself, and doing what you enjoy while maintaining a certain discipline without being miserable. I.e., all good things in moderation, unless you want to be very, very, good at whatever it is you're pursuing.
"I'm trying to shed 12% and thought this could help with the nutrition aspect of accomplishing that. " The poster says he's trying to shed 12%? From what? How much is 12%? The poster has a plan for failure. He doesn't do his discovery, nor communicate well. What's the poster look like? What are the poster's goals? What are the posters metrics? Does the poster understand that I've been 5'5" at 190# at 4% and consumed 3800 to 4800 calories a day doing it? Does the poster understand that eating MORE, activating the metabolism and getting busy is often the way to get lean and strong? Why doesn't the poster understand that in order to solve a problem you have to work the variables?
So many questions; so little time.
Here's 3800 calories a day, and 24 minutes of HIIT a day....for 20 weeks...it's what you get... You gotta' fuel the furnace.
The poster's profile reads that he's 6'1" and 159#. The poster is worried about abs? The poster wants to drop 12%, from WHERE? The poster needs to worry about essential bodily function. In reality, though, he's probably not eating much (or is very, very, very athletically active...) and has very little muscle mass, and has training his metabolism to be a fat storing machine. Think Ethiopia on this one. I weighed 175 at 5'5" at 17. This guy (he calls himself a "boi") is 26.
Here's what I want you to do. Go get the SR21 Food Database, or use the calorie monitor / workout planner at MetroplexFitness.net. Get a scale. Weigh all your food for 1 week. Report back here all your intake. We'll go from there.
Here's 190# at 5'5" at about 6%...
At 6'1", and 159#, the original poster probably doesn't need to be losing weight.
Here's the standard weight chart for sedentary folks. Folks who are athletes will weigh more. Most athletes are considerably heavier than the chart.
Jeeze, "boi", EAT!
