OK, heres the beef. I'm a fat ass. I know this, and I am doing something about it while I'm still young and healthy. I started off the year by losing around 65lbs. Due to a medical situation, I had to stop the progress and put probably 25 back on. My goal: Lose 150lbs and more importantly, get rid of man-tits, back fat, belly, and dick padding (yes, I said dick padding. Anyone who is or was a fatty, knows what Im talking about). My help: My doctor has put me back on a modified amphetamine (Phentermine/Adipex 37.5mg HUD once daily) and 1,500 cal diet. My dilemma: At first, I thought 1,500 was insane and I could never eat that few and enjoy any quality of meal or satisfaction of even feel sufficiently satisfied to not want to eat. I've found there are quite a few things that, if spread out through the day, I can enjoy and stay under my 1,500 cal limit. However, I want some ideas on filling, tasty meals that I can prepare with little time (I'm pretty busy). I'm not a huge fan of chicken (unless it is chicken kiev or grilled chicken fajita meat) and I don't really do fish. Beef is by far my fav which is probably going to make this whole process tough for a while. As far as exercise there are a couple issues. One is time, but that is just something I have to deal with. When I go to the gym I get on the bike for generally 30 mins then start doing some weight training (upper one day, lower the next). I am trying to not focus so much on weights because I don't want to put on anymore muscle mass (I'm quite bulky in that respect). I just want to get them tones and heated up to assist in the fat burning. Problem areas: I can't do a squat to save my life. I can leg press over 600lbs, but squats are non-exsistent. I have REALLY bad arthritis in my knees from having torn both ACLs multiple times and the added pressure of my excess weight. I'd really like to strengthen my legs. Arms. I do a friggen curl and my arms scream at me. My biceps are shit. I'd like to strengthen my lower back to help deal with the weight and the weight loss better. One thing I noticed as I lost the weight before is how much it affects the way you sit, stand, move and pretty much do everything, and with a weak back, it is going to be painful. Chest. I want to replace my man-tits with pecs. Alright, fire away guys. I'm sure I'll get some flames, but fuck it, I'm doing something about it.
