Default P.H.A.T. boy leans out

Hello MAB!

8 months away from lifting, a bunch of personal issues, awesome food during a month long vacation, and I have ballooned up to 198 lbs with a 38" waistline. Time to cut out the flab ...

What I have learnt ...
Rather unfortunately, each time I go overboard with singles, my wrists get damaged. Therefore, in order to stay injury free, I will try the (relatively) higher volume route after I start getting used to lifting again. I will be loosely following Layne Norton's P.H.A.T.

This still has a couple of power days, but the rep ranges will be 3-5 rather than doubles and singles. The next 2-3 days are higher volume days.

Starting at a weak 198 lbs, let's see what sort of progress I can make over the next few weeks ...

How are you arranging your diet?

Thanks for dropping by Chillen!

Basically my diet consists of 3 solid meals and 3 protein shakes with milk a day (one pre-WO, one post-WO and one while at work, when I cant get out to have much solid food).

Fruits, oats, grains, milk for breakfast
Half a dozen eggs and vegetables (especially legumes and some greens) for lunch
Some form of meat for dinner

I work in a research group, where a number of fellow grad students and post-docs love eating / are excellent cooks. So, usually I will end up with a couple of cheat meals a week.

I think the best diet is one that works and can be worked into my daily schedule, so instead of looking at this as a one time transformation crash diet, I want something that I can persist with, as a lifestyle.

As such, I am not tracking calories, but I am basically letting my body tell me how much I need. A check at the end o the week on scales should also provide pointers whether I am staying on track.

Looks good

Three meals a day keep your hunger at bay?

Ditto here, MAB brother!

No problem here, if it fits in your restriction, keeps you sane, and your dietary trend history and response is leading to tissue loss.

This is very intelligent thinking, young man.

The best advice I can give you if you are deciding to do it this way, is to study labels, portion sizes, calories and macros in food, and personally KNOW what you need for calories for maintenance and soliciting tissue loss. This will better serve you when you make calculations (in your head) on-the-fly as you live life, not mention some peace of mind when working toward your goal.


Much success your way!
