    Notes: I am going on a cruise in June, so I want to get to around 175 - 180 by then.


    Height: 5'9 1/2
    Weight: ~208
    Bodyfat: Beats me probably 20% - 21%.

    Goals: Get down to 180 or so while keeping my muscle mass.


    I am going to eat around 2000 calories a day, high protein diet.

    I am going to lift MWF and run S/T/TH.


    Today: I ran a bit around the block. I am working my endurance back up.
    Food: Real low today, 1800 calories and only 140g protein, this will change tomorrow.

    20xbw is a a ton, in the thread about diets they say around 15 for maintence and 18 for bulking.

    I probably should eat more than 2000, I am going to bump it up, because 2000 is a bit low.

    Everyone's different man. I did my weight loss at 2000 cals/day. I was 5'11" and 220lbs. I'm about 175 now. I started out thinking 2000 was too low, but i didn't lose SHIT at 2500/day. My big three have actually gone UP in the time i've been in a deficit, although not by much. And know that that is without my noob gains - i burned through those long ago.
