So I used to be into this whole workout thing, posted in here all the time and learned a lot of great info - so I wouldn't consider myself a newbie. I was at about 175 and relatively lean at 5'10" a couple of years ago when I fell off the wagon Anyways, now I'm about 200 lbs, a lot weaker, and a lot fatter than I used to be. I decided to start working out again and wanted to diet down to a reasonable bf level before I started trying to pack on the muscle. It's been 7 weeks now and I have lost 1 pound. Here's what I do : lifting 5 days a week (M-F) on a 3 day split (chest / tri's, back / bi's, legs / shoulders). 50 minutes of cardio 6 days a week, atleast 6 hours apart from my lifting (being in college allows me a lot of free time so I'm in the gym twice a day on most days) I've always had a pretty slow metabolism so I don't eat too many calories. About 2500 a day. I try to space it out between atleast 4 meals, but most days I get in 5 or 6. I know what to eat and I would say my diet is pretty damned healthy. I keep away from simple carbs and bad fats as much as I can. I eat a lot of tuna, chicken, and ground turkey, fruits, vegetables, and whole-wheat breads and pastas. As a matter of fact, that's like 90% of my diet right there. Toss in skim milk and natty PB and that's basically all I eat. So am I doing wrong?
