    I am probably at 11-12%, 13% tops. I am 6'0" 192 lbs right now and would like to get above 200 lbs but have less body fat that I do right now. Any suggestions? Btw, I don't really do any cardio now, so I know that would be a good start, but what types are recommended and any good things to hit my LOWER 2 abs hard?

    as i understand it, you can't spot reduce (maybe with like a transdermal? i dont know much about them). just overall reduce body fat.

    hard cardio and eatting just below maintenance calories will help. but what do i know.... i'm just the 11ty billionth non-av user to reply.

    NO AV crew in the house. The fat on your abs is the hardest one to get rid of. For me I would lose fat from everywere else first then my abs last. Try 2000 calories a day and tough it out and do some cardio atleast 30 mintues 3 times a week. If you want it bad enough you have to work for it

    For those saying "diet", can you elaborate a bit?

    For me, I find that keeping up with my proteins and carbs helps. But I keep good balance between the two. And I don't take in much fat at all.

    you can go to www.bodyrecomposition.com...its lyles website. he made the psmf diet. he has the book you can buy, or if you hang out on the forum long enough you might be able to learn how to do it with out buying the book. i would suggest just buying the book though. its a downloadable book for like 15 or 20 bucks.
