Posting end result pics soon, even though they both disappoint and depress me.
Man I'm disappointed!! Eat all winter long?? That's the best time to get cut because it's not as enticing to go out and get wasted since there aren't as many people out. Just my 2 cents though!

Just a note...if you go to Chili's and order the Triple Play, make sure you don't eat anything else that day. 2330 surprising calories! YIKES!

There's a big difference between summer in Philly and summer in San Diego, believe it or not...

Ok, so I'm taking from now until Halloween off from drinking and going to get in ridiculous shape in that time.

I estimate my current body fat to be around 8%. By Halloween I will be at 6% at pretty much the same weight as I'll lose a couple pounds of fat that I'll be gaining in muscle.

Might post some before after pics here later.

So I'm on day 18 of no drinking:

I took about 1.5 weeks off from lifting because my body really needed the rest. Just started back up yesterday and will go *more* crazy than usual until the end of October.

I am also not eating any meat, which is going to be an interesting challenge as I've never done anything like this in my life.

So far, I've lost 4 lbs, I'm guessing because I haven't lifted in 1.5 weeks and haven't been eating all that much during that time.

Before and after to be posted at the end of Oct.

quick question for those people that have done or currently doing that P90X. I just borrowed the dvd set from a friend and just got done doing the first routine. Now, do I do that dvd for the rest of the week, or do I pop in a new one every day?

Depends on which program you want to do - Classics, Lean, or Doubles. I would recommend Classics. You definitely do a different DVD each day, and if you want results - you have to stick with it.

More importantly, your diet has to be in check. Go to a calorie calculator website and compute your daily caloric intake needed for maintenance. If you are doing p90x to lose weight, then you should drop that number 500-750 calories a day to lose 1-1.5 lbs a week. Also, make sure your daily protein intake is 1-1.5g/lb of body-weight. This helps preserve muscle, and protein also makes you feel fuller than eating an equivalent amount of calories in say carbs, so it is easier to keep to a diet.

here is a website that contains the workout programs for p90x. Choose one and stick with it:

http://www.scribd.com/doc/9765540/P90X-Calendar

I did p90x for 120 days with great results. I'm 6'1" and was 205-210 when I started and after finishing I was down around 185 and ~12% bodyfat. I now just lift weights as I wanted to get bigger and after the program I actually bulked up over the last 8-9 months to 225. Been cutting the past 2 months and am back down to 205, but am at 12% bodyfat again. So hopefully I've put on at least 15-20 lbs of muscle. I'm dropping until I'm sub 8% bodyfat. Then I'll continue to bulk/cut until I reach my goal of being 205 lbs at 6% bodyfat. I figure I have a good 2 years left of hard work.

Beings as when I started 1.5 years ago on this quest and was at 275 lbs at easily 35+ % bodyfat, I have learned that with proper diet and dedication that anything is possible. I've also learned that working out is only roughly 10% of the battle. I would say that proper diet is 40% and dedication to diet and working out/lifting is the other 50%.

Good luck and update us with how things go!

Question:

My wife just joined the LA Fitness around the way, and has asked me to find her a workout routine on the Internet that will at least get her going for the next 30 days. Anyone know where I might find a good routine for her?

www.bodybuilding.com has a workout database. You can plug in the workout dates, goals, and other info and it will find workouts for you.:

Its not a site just for meat heads either. It has some great info for everyone.

Yup.

I'd refer her to the female section. She can register and talk to women with similar goals, or ones who have been there, done that, and can offer advice on both workout and nutrition.

But whatever you do... keep her away from the misc.

I'm pretty leery of BodyBuilding.com. For every knowledgeable person there, you have 100 morons who don't have the slightest clue what they're talking about. The site itself is great, but I find the forums pretty spotty.

My de-facto weight lifting mentor sent me over to IntenseMuscle.com and I find it to be a much more knowledgeable forum. They don't have any qualms about giving idiots the boot over there.

Does anyone have any opinions on if cardio is necessary to get to sub 10% bodyfat. I've been lifting regularly and have my diet in check, but I can't seem to break the 12-13% bodyfat level (also, my weight has been pretty constant for 3-4 weeks). I'm thinking of cutting my calories more, but I've also starting doing 15-20 minutes of cardio after lifting.

Anyone have any tips?? I'm ultimately shooting to be in the 6-8% bf range. I probably need to cut my calories more and continue doing the cardio. Any tips are appreciated.

Cardio is going to help, and is important any physical routine. But instead of running 2 to 3 miles, think about interval training, running sprints and hills. Studies have shown that better then 20 to 30 minute of jogging.

Yeah, it's called be disciplined.

Get away from refined sugars - Ice cream, candy, etc. You should only really be getting sugar from fruit and the minimal amounts found in milk/dairy/etc.

Don't eat enriched flours or pastas. Go all whole wheat for every bread or pasta carb, this means the first ingredient on the pasta or bread should be whole wheat or stone ground whole wheat flour. Spelt grains are really good too, but you typically only get those at health conscious grocers.

Get rid of red meat. Only eat lean meats and fish (99% fat free turkey meat, chicken breast, and salmon/tuna/etc).

Workout and run 3 times a week.

You'll lose 10 lbs in no time.
