So those 6 pounds i gained is now down to 1, lost 5 easy pounds in a few days. I guess that high matabolism wasn't completly ruined in the week of meh eating. Just wish this belly would be down more, it's a 253 pound belly it looks like even though i'm 214. Ohwell, i noticed i look slimmer from the sides through the mirror regardless.

Good job. It's easy to go back to unhealthy habits, especially when away from home.

Stomachs are quite often the last thing to lose. Look at all of the guys out there who aren't really that fat but have big stomachs. Do you eat big meals, by any chance? Try spreading out your food intake over smaller portions in each meal (at least 3 a day) and snack on some fruits and veggies in between meals so you're not hungry. If you're eating the same amount of food each day but it's spread out more (instead of packing it into 2 big meals for example) your stomach will shrink.

Also a sure-fire way to lose fat around your mid-section (other than exercise) is by cutting out unnatural sugars. Completely, if you can. Don't eat any processed foods if you can avoid it. The excess fat will just melt off of you even when you eat a lot if you've got a healthy diet.

Thanks. I eat 3-5 small meals a day.

Protein shake (2 scoops whey protein, 1 cup water, 1 or 2 bananas, 4 ice cubes, sometimes a teaspoon of Vanilla Extract per the Insanity book, 6-8 whole frozen strawberrys)

A few big glasses of water a day (comes to around 5ish cups of water, close to the 8 per day range), i'm thinking of going back to tea again, perhaps 2 cups of tea with all that water aswell.

Kashi go lean cereal with a cup of skim milk and sometimes a scoop of protein powder with cut up bananas.

English muffins with a tiny bit of mayo on it then some shredded cheese over top, but not globs. Other times i use just bread instead.

2 eggs, 3 strips turkey bacon, a few pieces of lettuce, sometimes i add a dash of some taco seasoning mix for extra flavour.

Just some examples of what i eat which are EASY to make and i don't get bored of it like i did making peanut butter jam sandwiches every single day 2-3 times a day because i was lazy.

Aswell as TONS of sweat from my workout. I go untill i'm incapable of getting up. Loving this high metabolism.

Wow sounds like you've already got a great plan, keep it up. My oldest brother did insanity earlier this year, but he still ate crap so he saw very little results.

No healthy man over 5'9 and 20 years old should weigh less than 200lbs

Been there, even got the tshirt. I ate out a lot, pretty much everyday. Surprised I did not look like a 3000 pound man like a lot of big guys do. Finally broke down and been heading in the right direction now except last week but I'm over it now. Hope to reach 200 in the next 2 weeks to finish insanity off and finally start focus t-25. But yeah, no nutrition no results. You can do a slack job and have good nutrition, but not good good job slack nutrition.

As for the poster below you, I'm 5'10 which makes my ideal weight 180, although I could hit 200 if its all muscle rather then fat.

That might be the worst comment I've read in this thread. This thread is really good and now we are supposed to believe 5'9 200 is safe? Good lord. I weigh 174 and am in great shape. 25 extra lbs would be nothing but fat. Or make me look like a meat head.

Anyone use protein powders or drinks after workout sessions? I don't, but I really wonder if they make any difference.

Are you kidding me?

Who would want to be strong with an optimal metabolism and immune system ERRR... look like a "meat head"?

Come on, dude.

And you think at 5'9 174 if you add any weight it would only be fat? Do you even lift, bro? (that question super applies here)

Maybe Shrimper could stand to add some bodyweight but being 5'10 and under 200 lbs is fine.
It's hardly unhealthy. I'm 40, play hockey 3x a week and train constantly; I feel like I'm close to the best shape of my life - 5' 10 and 185.

I've seen the muscle milk around but never tried it. Coconut water is perfect for hydrating before or after workouts or games. I enjoy Gary Roberts post recovery drink. Try it out.

So what? The guy also has a hard time finding jeans that fit him because his legs are so big. So any "healthy" guy has to have huge legs/muscle? You do realize there are different body styles out there, right? Not everybody wants to (or can) look like a body builder (which even Sid isn't). That doesn't make them unhealthy.


An "ideal weight" based on height alone is crap.

Healthy was probably the wrong word. But it is not hard for a man with decent strength to weigh around 200lbs having built a solid foundation.

Within about 18 months of pure strength training I went from about 180lbs (my weight after years of sports/core workouts/body-weight workouts/few runs of P90x/yadda yadda) to 210lbs. My BF% went up by maybe 2-4%, but I honestly dropped that within a few weeks max just because my metabolism is so ****ing amazing now.

And by the way, I look by no means fat or like a "meat head". I basically look the same as Sid in that pic as this weight, maybe with a little more arm definition.

Oh, and by the way, with the added strength I can do all that athletic stuff / sports at a much higher level.

That's great, but it's not the only way.

Like I said, this guy's 5'10", 170:



Seems to do just fine in his sport of choice, too.

Let's not kill this thread... I think we all disagree with the one ridiculous comment. This thread has been really enjoyable as it has been solid contribution all around.

Let's keep that up.

Hey all, I've been going to weekly Les Mills BodyPump for 3.5 months and I LOVE the class. I went on Tuesday night and by Wednesday night, the left side of my mid-back was on fire. Still is, currently. I haven't been this sore from BP ever. I'm not sure what it is- I haven't added more strength to the bar or anything. No idea why this happened, I'm thinking maybe my form is poor. Or is it just growing pains? My co-worker, a fellow BodyPump'er, suggested 'this means you're getting stronger' but I'm very doubtful as it doesn't feel like that.

Like I said, healthy was the wrong word.

But someone in optimum condition is *most likely* (omg there are exceptions in nature guys, I get it) going to easily cross the 200lb barrier.

Even GSP isn't very strong looking in many areas. His core is strong as F, his shoulders are huge, and he is extremely lean, so of course he looks very aesthetic. But he'd be the first one to admit that he is actually relatively small/weak in a lot of areas. Because they do not benefit his sport and are not needed.

Once GSP is done with MMA and trains for general fitness, guarantee he blows up in areas and his daily weight is near or over than 200lb mark (might even be close to it today, anyway).

Not everybody wants the mass though. Some people like to run marathons, all that extra weight would be counter-productive. I don't play competitive sports anymore, I personally don't care about "performance", I just want to be healthy and look/feel good. To say any guy 5'10" should weigh over 200lbs is just ridiculous. What works for your lifestyle might not work for someone else.

I'm 5'7" (well 5'7.5" to be exact but who cares) and about 155lbs (I don't own a scale so just estimating). I have a pretty muscular physique, feel great and I can work a physical job all day long without getting tired.

Not everybody wants to be really big. In my case I'm short so I don't want to be really big, looking like Mark Walberg or something lol.
