    Guy's I need some good insight to leaning out. I have lost some good weight while keeping my muscle by doing more cardio at my fat burning zone. I also run too anywhere from 30-60 minutes. I do feel my clothing fitting better and looser. The newest incorporated idea that I have implemented was restricting me to a 1500 calorie diet that I started about 2 weeks ago. I also started cooking healthier about 3 months ago which led me to where im at now.
    Am I being to apprehensive with the results? Any suggestions are appreciated!
    I'm 5'9 182 lbs, goal is to be around 170-175. I use to weigh in at 195

    Suggestions??

    What you are doing sounds good. be patient.

    1500 calories a day seems crazy small. If you are that active your body probably needs more than that. Also if you don't want to lose muscle mass you need to eat.

    Possibly adding more calories, but incorporating cardio with HIIT might help you out a bit more.

    If you haven't already, go to the doctor and get some testosterone. At 36 years of age, it's a good thing to do for your health and anti-aging.

    Study up on HIIT. Fat burning zones are things of the past.

    1500 calories a day will send you into famine syndrome. EAT.

    Can you do that? Get testosterone? What is it exactly (I'm assuming it's not just, like, pure, bottled testosterone).

    My method for losing weight is, unfortunately, stress. I mean MAJOR stress though. Life changing events.

    Some people overeat when under pressure, I simply and honestly "forget" to eat. That and the adrenalin created by worrying too much takes me to the point where people tell me I look ill, which is usually when I start to force myself to find balance again.

    The rewards come when I start to bulk up again and for a few months I have a great body. Then I start to get a bit squidgy.

    I'm kinda like Oprah.

    All that said, those episodes are few and far between these days, as I do learn from my mistakes and maturity has given me a level of emotional intelligence that enables me to take control of my stress response. Damn you maturity.
