    Eating right and working out regularly, where do you think I could be? I'm currently 230lbs and eat pretty crappy. I'm going back to my college for a fraternity banquet and and realizing I'd like to look a little bit better. Now I'm not looking for a huge turn around and lose 50lbs and get a six pack, but maybe to slim down some. I want to use this as my initial incentive to get in to better shape. What would you say is a realistic goal? I know this is extremely vague, so please ask questions and I'll answer to the best of my knowledge. Thanks!

    if you don't workout or eat good now, then in 7 wks of eating good and working out you could probably be 225 (maybe 220 even you really pushed it) but look more than 5-10lbs lighter.

    But if you really want to use this to jump start a healthier lifestyle then don't worry about where you will be in 7 wks, get started, the results will be what they will be. Its about where you'll be in 7 yrs, not 7 wks.

    7 weeks is almost 2 months. This summer I dropped about 30 pounds. If you ate right, worked out and did cardio regularly, you could be down much more than 10 pounds in 7 weeks.

    2 pounds a week is "healthy" 2x7 = 14.

    I'd say 20+ pounds is do-able in 7 weeks, especially considering your current weight.

    this of course all depends on your dedication.

    This.

    And you could probably even lose 20lbs be down to 210 in 7 weeks. Some will be water weight though.

    my thoughts was, if he's a newb he'd lose fat and add muscle, thats why i estimated a smaller total weight loss.

    I know my twin brother is starting to get back into it, and after 3-4 weeks of eating better and lifting and doing cardio he is only down about 2 pounds. Granted his diet could still be much much better. But for only being down 2 pounds overall he has definitely lost more than 2lbs of fat.

    But you guys are probably right, I was just guestimating. I'd go with timber's advice. He is a trainer.


    Quick question for Timberwolf: when, how, and why did you get the nickname timberwolf?

    Took this guy from 245 to 180lbs in four months.
    Pic though was 2 weeks after he started and when he was down to 185lbs.

    Hey timberwolf, do you have your diet posted at all anywhere? I'd love to check it out. I appreciate the input guys. If anyone else has any success stories or good suggestions, I'd love to hear them!

    follow purs sticky(diet/routine) as strict as possible and you will make very noticeable changes in 7 weeks.

    Before you head to the gym and waste countless hours on some stupid cardio machine, please get your diet in check. You wont make any progress if your not eating right.

    I use fitday.com to track my calories.
    Main thing is to be in a caloric deficit with enough protein intake.
    At 230lbs... maybe start off at 2300 calorie intake with at least 200g of protein per day. As recommended above, look up Pur's sticky for an idea on how to eat.

    didn't i read once that you recommend 50% from protein and 25% carbs 25% fats?

    or what macros do you shoot for? (when bulking? cutting?)

    When cutting I aim for my protein (in grams) to be equal to or the sum of my fat and carb intake. This doesn't mean though it would be 50% protein since fat is 9 calories per gram instead of 4 for both protein and carbs.
    ie. 200g protein/ 100g fat/ 100g carbs is 38%/ 43%/ 19% (I think)
