Body Transformation: Get A Load Of This!
WEIGHT 210 lbs
WEIGHT 185 lbs
I felt terrible eating bad food, and playing varsity sports with too much fat was very difficult. I was scared of what people thought when I took my shirt off. I didn't want to go to the pool with my friends because I knew people would judge my body.
I put my mind to it, and now I can take my shirt off with confidence. I increased my speed and quickness and can play better defensive basketball now.
I came to the conclusion that I was overweight and needed to do something about it. My lifting style worked, but at a very slow pace. I knew to lose fat I needed to watch my carb intake and get it under 100 grams a day. It took about six months to cut down from 210 to 169 pounds.
My diet focused on adding muscle mass the past few months. For several months before, I lifted at 5:30 a.m. at our local gym. My group of friends made fun of me if I wasn't there, so everyone was kind of forced to go or it would be a long day. When sports started, a lot of people stopped lifting altogether and didn't show up in the morning, but I wasn't going to quit.
I pushed through ever obstacle thrown at me. I lifted during sports and on Saturdays when my friends were out having fun. I had a protein shake instead of cake. I feel great about myself now and I'm excited to see what I look like in the future.
Dieting was brutal. My dieting is strict most of the time and I can't eat what my family does. I made my own meals mostly. My mom helped me out by cooking healthy meals when my family has supper. She also helps me purchase my food and supplements. Both my parents are really supportive of my lifting goals.
I want to compete in bodybuilding competitions next year. Later on in life, I want to become a trainer and have my own gym.
Creating a body you're comfortable in takes time. Be patient. Focus 100 percent on dieting and training.
When I needed an extra exercise or a new lift to help my body develop quicker and more efficiently, I knew I could rely on Bodybuilding.com. The articles on Bodybuilding.com really helped with my nutrition planning.

I dropped over 100 lbs eating amost 200g a day. Most of my carbs were around workout time. I ate about 30 grams postworkout and about 40 in the a.m. I love me some brown rice.
With all due respect how can you call someone elses diet garbage? And all what carbs and sugar? lol All his carbs and sugar come in the form of a few apples a couple pieces of bread and what looks like a post work out banana. Oh and some milk . I wouldn't call it garbage. Its actually pretty decent minus the fact there aren't any veggies listed.
Pretty sure I eat 2x the carbs/sugar he does and am doing fine. Difference people, different results. Good job on the fat droppage. x2 on the veggies though.
Thanks everyone for the positive comments. I do eat veggies lol. I forgot about putting them in. I usually eat peas carrots and onions.
Honestly bro? You're 18% body fat at 144 lbs. Don't be talking **** on someone who looks better than you
******* first two comments by - stevenmurray198 & akakane. Just a quick look at their profile and you know they are trolls. Before you talk sh!t get an education on the different types and forms of diets. Say something when your transformation and dedication is as successful as this man's. Great job buddy!
He should be commended for what he did. For the diet haters, his diet is not that bad. Not to mention, he is 18 years old. Remember how much "garbage" you could eat at that age before you put on any weight.
Good **** man it takes a lot of dedication and character to commit yourself to a healthy lifestyle and I can def appreciate something like that. Great results brotha keep up the hard work!
Ya i get a lot of questions on my traps lol. I train back very hard I feel it is one of the most important aspects in looking big. I usually do barbell shrugs and then grap plats right after shrugging and burn them out. I do about 5 sets of that. I really noticed doing a lighter weight for traps and really focusing on the contraction helped them grow and get more cut.
