New Beginnings

Tuesday, November 05, 2013

Hi everyone. I'm now nearing my weight goal and am looking on maintaining my weight as well as developing some nice lean muscle. If anyone out there thinks they might be able to help please shoot me a message! I'd appreciate it.

  I saw your post on the message board with basically this same question. First of all, congratulations on losing all that weight! That is amazing.

On the message board you said you lift for 30 minutes a day and do an hour of cardio. A little over two years ago I lost some weight and, more importantly to me, changed my body composition to increase muscle and decrease fat. The two things I did that helped the most were: 1) reduced my carbohydrate intake and upped my protein -- so I stopped eating oatmeal, bread, pasta, rice, potatoes, flour and ate more tuna, eggs, chicken; and 2) stopped doing as much cardio and started lifting weights systematically. I try to lift 3x/week for about 45 minutes. I follow the New Rules of Lifting series of books, all which include a program in which you work on strength gains (so, short heavy sets). I was worried about decreasing my cardio but I feel great and I did lose a lot of fat. Hope that makes sense, and good luck -- and congrats again!

    I don't have any advice for maintenance, since I haven't made it to my goal yet, but I wanted to say emoticon

Way to go!!!
