    5'6", 145lbs. skinny fat. if i had to guess, i'd venture i'm about 25% bf.

    right now, i'm trying to cut down to 13-15% and then start a clean bulk/lifting diet.

    i just started on this diet about a week ago and this is what my average day looks like. i'm allergic to dairy so that's why you don't see any of that. allergic, not lactose intolerant. no whey, casein, etc...

    why dont you just start clean bulking now? the fatness will eventually go away


    anyway, you're caloric intake is pretty low, bra. 1200??? unless you're a 4' 80lb girl. Looks like your maintenance should be around 2200, so i wouldnt eat less than 1900. Eat more protein, get chicken/tuna/cottage cheese/PBJ,

    good luck

    its hard for me to get more clean calories right now. i get full so easily and am on a college budget. the dairy allergy really hinders my ability to take in easily soluble proteins during the day, limits me to and soy milk, rice milk and water for shakes.

    i'll probably order a tub of these raw egg whites from this place. they're pasteurized and supposedly can be used as a milk substitute in shakes.

    i think cytogainer is lactose-free and they have a deal on it right now...its on one of threads posted here.

    you can do it man. i work 12 hour graveyard shifts which makes it super hard to eat well but the one thing that's helped me is having a foreman grill, then i just buy a shitload of meats from costco. Tuna out of the can+hot sauce too. It's not the best tasting shit in the world but you get used to it.

    i'm not lactose intolerant, i'm allergic.

    whey and casein will give me the same issues. i get very dehydrated, swollen eyes and a temporary psoriasis.

    Food choices suck huge donkey balls!! Jesus Christ, why don't you damn kids get a freakin' George Forman grill and start eating some real fucking food instead of all of this pre-packaged bullshit!! You are what you eat, you can't run a top fuel dragster off of unleaded gasoline, you need jet fuel!!

    i have a george foreman.

    i didn't say i ate the same crap every day, i said that's what my typical day looks like in terms of nutrients.

    everything's pre-packaged these days unless i went out and slaughtered the fucking pork myself and bear swatted the fucking salmon from the stream. just because a butcher cuts the shit up into size doesn't mean shit.

    Okay, here is what you need to do:

    You are skinny-fat.
    If you try to lose weight you will end up RIDICULOUSLY skinny..

    If you are 25% body fat at 145 means you have:
    108lbs lean mass
    36lbs of fat

    If you want to see abs at 10% (assuming losing no lean mass) you need to be 118lbs. Do you REALLY want to be 118lbs? I don't think so.

    Alternatively if you bulk, you are just going to get more fat. 25% body fat is horrible and adding to that fat means months and months more of dieting.. again - nobody wants that.

    What you need is "body recomposition."

    You're lucky because since you are a beginner you can gain muscle and lose fat much quicker than more experienced lifters.
    You need to start on a routine where you lift HEAVY and fairly frequently. Really go for building as much muscle as you can. Remember that if you can 1lb of muscle with no fat gain you have decreased your body fat % too!

    You need to eat at around about maintenance levels (I'd guess ~2300 would be appropriate for you), keeping your carbs under control. Makes good food choices (listed in the Nutritional info sticky) and don't eat loads of crap.

    You also need to change your negative attitude and focus on your goals. If you aren't prepared to put in the effort then you will fail, and you might as well not bother.

    Does everyone else agree?

    i agree with you.

    help me out with the non-dairy (no whey, no casein, no lactose...) protein low-carb, low fat options.

    eating solid food all day to take in 150g of protein makes me feel like my stomach is going to explode and i'm usually taking in almost as many carbs.

    this is what yesterday was for me:

    Pre-packaged as in reference to frozen and with tons of sodium and preservatives. You better watch your tone with me young man. My advice is golden and you are cosidered fortunate that I took pity upon you and tried to help you. Do you even know who I am? I don't post in every thread, so when I decide to say something, it's worth listening to. However, you seem to know it all so why even ask in the first place? Good luck in all of your future endeavors.

    college budget :hs:

    i'll agree, the pork loin was a bad choice. so was the icee treat.

    but the healthy choice soups are too valuable to me as a lazy college student and the sam's salmon steaks are just tooo :yum: to give up.

    It is difficult to eat properly on a college budget. Lean meats and organic foods are expensive. There are alot worse choices than healthy choice soups. At least you are trying, that's more than 90% of the population.

    No dairy - whey/casein etc? That's a bummer but it's not the end of the world.

    Healthy choice soups.. they might be healthy but they don't do shit for your attempts to gain muscle and burn fat.

    Is there no way you can buy meat in bulk? Do you have a freezer? Can you not buy a bag of 20 chicken breasts and freeze it? Eat 2 a day for most of your protein requirements. The salmon steaks are fine too - again I've seen those individually wrapped in bags of 20+.

    Yeah it's a bit of an investment but good food DOES cost more. And at the end of the day you may end up saving money from leading a healthier lifestyle.

    Eat more real/lean foods and more curls in the squat rack.

    these pics were taken on 3/1. i've never been on a diet or on a workout routine.

    diet started on 2/24. fitday screen shot is from 2/24-3/11. one day in there was really low, didn't log the shit. i don't log all the exercise i do either, really just logging food.

    i think your eating way too few calories and don't need to cut at all. That is ridiculously low, you should focus on building muscle right now, you're a little chubby, but not bad enough to be starving yourself.
