I hope all is well. I’ve been working pretty hard for the last 1.5 years to transform my body. Here’s how I used to look.
It’s been quite a journey. I started at 245lbs and a high BMI. I’ve been trying different approaches like Intermittent fasting and working out with decent weight and high reps. About 4 months ago I switched things up and started lifting a bit heavier and progressing the weight. I am no longer intermittent fasting, but I am watching my caloric intake. I typically work out twice a day for 1 to 1.5 hours at a time and 4-5 times a week. I do HIIT 4-5 times a week for 45 mins to an hour, and occasionally take walks in the evening 2-3 times a week for a 1/2 hour. I also do 200 crunches every other day. My body fat is still at 13.5% and I can’t seem to get it lower.
Here are some photos of how I currently look.
I’m trying to get a good definition on my abs and increase the muscle on my upper body. I can’t take any protein supplements, because the last time I took some, I got a kidney stone. So I am trying to get my protein from fish and chicken. Any tips on how to get my body fat down or increase muscle volume upstairs would be appreciated. Thanks!
