My goal from the get go has be to be stronger, faster and have more endurance. Yes, there used to be a "leaner" part in there. 5kg said in his opinion, I could drop 20lbs solely by incorporating cardio. I have already dropped 10lbs putting myself in this miserable diet predicament. 220 - 10 = 210lbs. 210 - 20 = 190lbs. Right along the lines of where I said I wanted to be.
I have not given much advice on this forum at all. Mainly because there are some people on here that know more than I do and I instead read instead of post a lot, but the advice I have posted has been nothing more along the lines of why rowing volume should be equal to benching, and how important it is to train a single leg exercise after a double legged. That's basically the only guides of advice I have given here, so I'm not sure where you were going with the whole "giving advice on things I have no experience with".
I wasn't aware that a simple post stating a change of goals was going to draw so much attention that it would actually be getting PM's about it.
Like I said though, I've got much more going on right now than a diet. I'm not going to ramble on about my problems, but my weight is at the bottom of that list. I've been lifting, making gains, even though I'm driving an hour away just to lift. I'm not sure why I'm the exuse-a-saurus just because I'm dropping a diet.
