Fin, if you're wanting to lose fat then the trick is in the diet. Start tracking your calories/day to get a baseline, then reduce it by 500. Don't expect big strength gains while doing this.
Good idea. I've recently started using myfitnesspal app on my android phone to track my calories. I'm losing weight, slowly, but I know what I'm putting in and tracking calories burned too. There are online sites to do this also. Myfitnesspal.com and livestrong has one too. Many others.

Yes of course, I'm aware that strength gains are not the priority here and will definitely fall behind. I'm also aware of the much needed calorie deficit. It's just that I thought that this way of training would produce the necessary calorie deficit for weight loss. Seems I was wrong, huh... And I'm not looking to lose a ton of weight in a short period of time, that's unhealthy. I was merely hoping to look better for summer. That's why I posted all this info about bodyfat etc to see if I can lose enough weight till the summer. Anyway thanks for your advice everyone. Calorie-tracking it is then.

The reason I decided to be a rep is because without changing my workout habits, I've lost 20 lbs (net), but probably more like 28 because I've easily put on 8 lbs of new muscle, and that may be conservative.

I don't have a business account here, so I'll not barrage this thread with details and marketing stuff. If anyone is interested, they can PM me.

4 years ago I weighed about 230 with a 40 inch waist. I decided this was not healthy so I made drastic changes. Over the years I got my weight down to an average of 187. Bodyfat wise I was still not happy. So i researched and came upod Tmag.com. THis was about 2 months ago. THey recommended to add the carbs back in with veggies, rice, potatoes, eat lots of meat (chicken fish steak) and as much fruit as you want but leave out dairy, including yogurt and bread in any form as well as PB and pastas. THis was a shock to my current knowledge of diet but I tried it. Low and behold I dropped weight and BF fast. My current weight is about 171 and I am losing 1/2 a pound to a pound a week. I still have a cheat day once a week and I don't hold back. My abs are coming in (a shadow of a 4 pack) Im never hungry, don't have bad cravings, and all the meals im eating feel like cheat meals (compared to what I was eating before). I will keep at it till I have a 6 pack and then add in a few things to maintain. I dont starve myself, fast, or go hungry. It just works.
Low fat, High Carb Vegan Diet. I lost 15 lbs not trying am at 190 with 8% bf. Still benching over 315, and rest of my development is exactly the same except I lost fat and water weight. And as I suspected the over consumption of protein is simply hype. I've been in the conditioning game as a career for a long time and fell for all the gimmicks and hype with diet. And no I'm not some animal loving hippie. I still hunt and still eat an occasional burger, but am convinced that fruit and starch fuel the body like nobody's business.
What I really don't get about people who are looking to lose weight is that most really just "train" and "diet" without any plan or concept.
First, educate yourself:
Spend an evening watching everything you can find on youtube.
Buy a book on nutrition, or two. "Men's Health", preferrably NOT.
And if your weight loss goals are more than cosmetic corrections,
consult a doctor.
THEN, start something.
For most people, it's really just starting to eat like a goddamn human being. Not wanting to rant, but I hung out this weekend with a guy who bitches endlessly about being too fat, and then thinks dinner means a gallon of Pepsi and two giga-sized packs of Doritos. Sorry, guys, but if you do that, you're technically pigs. That's not slow metabolism, that's about being the ruling class from George Orwell's Animal Farm.
And don't bitch about money or time issues. At least around here, stunning FOUR kilos of broccoli cost as much as ONE pack of chips.
