Day 20 cutting diet

May 22, 2013

So I’m on day 20 of the cutting diet,lost about 6 lbs. I will be flying out to Istanbul,Turkey on the 28th if this month. Then from there I will go straight to Kabul,Afghanistan. It will be after 5 years,this time I will be prepared with my 64g iPhone 5 and 64g iPad mini. Sometimes I close my eyes and I’m telling everyone that I meet that Afghanistan went by so fast,45 days was a blur & now it’s Ramadan again. This Ramadan will be the best,can’t wait to start and be at peace with myself while fulfilling my duties. I will start Ramadan in Afghanistan,I stars I believe July 8th this year,we will be landing back home on the 14th. InshaAllah we will complete Ramadan together.

I also shipped to Afghanistan my supplements from Bodybuilding.com, of course I’ll be training there while eating 6 times a day,walking miles to and from the gym & all the food is natural,healthy & organic.

Day 1 cutting diet

May 1, 2013

So today is day one of the cutting diet. It’s not a diet where all of a sudden I limit my calories and carbs,if I did that then my body would not appreciate that and most likely I would lose muscle.
Here are some shots to start with,also I am at 10% body fat:

Here is how much calories I burned today:

Also yes I got a new polar FT80 watch because my old one finally died completely. We had a good run but this design is more bad ass.

So far the only things that were changed in my diet were how much almond butter I can have, the Karbolyn amount & olive oil amount. We will see how this week goes,also I am doing 30 min cardio either before my breakfast or right after my workout.

Day 58 on Gaining Diet

March 30, 2013

More carbs,more protein,more healthy fats, what more can be expected from a clean diet like that? My coach has given me a nice clean diet to follow and obviously it’s up to me to follow it religiously which I have been. I’ve been skipping out on hanging out with friends,skipping out in taking the one small bite of cake or cookie. I’ve stopped myself from having a small handful of chips. Food is a powerful drug, as Jay Cutler would say:“I don’t eat for taste, I eat for function.”

I can remember when I first started dieting with my coach,he gave me a muscle building diet first and I looked at it,didn’t take it too seriously,only made the breakfast he had for me. But then after about a week we decided for me to start the Keto diet to cut the fat,which I did. Then Ramadan came along so I was “dirty bulking” but I couldn’t work out or maintain the muscle within that month so I pretty much lost part of the muscle. Once October of 2012 came along I started to cut the fat again and now I am in the process of a nice Clean Bulk phase. It’s tough but so far so good.

It’s been tough,gaining 1-2 lbs of muscle,judging by what I see in the mirror I’ve gained 2/3 of muscle and 1/3 of fat. My abs are still outlining but I can see the belly fat covering it a bit. 5 more weeks then we start cutting again with more minutes added to my cardio regiment.

Gaining diet day 37

March 9, 2013

So far is day 37 of the gaining diet. Haven’t changed the diet in 2 weeks for sure,gaining 1-2 lbs of muscle per week with a little bit of the occasional fat of course. When your gaining then you’ll expect some fat gain as well depending on how clean your diet is.

I’ll go for 3 more weeks before I start cutting again. Hopefully the muscle will burn fat faster.

Gaining diet day 30

March 1, 2013

Sorry to all for not keeping up with this blog. It’s been a crazy few months. Here’s my first entry on my blog:
Vlog day 1

Also here is me trying a back workout that I have t done in 6 weeks: single arm rows,135 lbs each,no straps

I’ve been given by my coach a 12 week training program along with a new bulking diet. I was skinny but felt and looked flat at 11% body fat.

It was time for me to start rounding the muscles out and feeling fuller,adding carbs & healthy fats slowly back into the diet; again I am trying to achieve a beast mode look all natural.
So far so good,I’ll let you guys be the judge:

The last pic is flew Lewis,that’s my goal but not as big,I’ll try and get to at least 175-180 lbs with 8% body fat,gaining is tough but muscle is building fast for sure,1-2 lbs added every week. I did gain a few percent body fat but that’s from the cheat meals once per week. Still training incredibly hard and still looking vascular so I know I shouldn’t have to worry about the fat gain,especially once I start cutting again in 6 weeks.

Cutting diet day 87

January 12, 2013

It’s been awhile since I had last updated this so let me recap without boring you. I was able to get down to 142 lbs. I was sick before I got to that weight, I had the stomach virus and flu at the same time during New Year’s Eve, resulting in more weight/fat loss brining my body down t 142 lbs. I am also 12% body fat, most of my veins are very vascular now, especially when I lift weights.

Coach has finally given me back cheat meals once per week:

Today I am hovering around 143/142 lbs right now, hopefully tonight’s leg session will bring the weight down gain so by Monday the weight will get to 141 lbs. just wondering out loud but it would be crazy if I got to the 130’s weight class and still maintain my muscle, I am only 5’4 so that’s still a healthy range of weight for me, but I might still lose some muscle mass, which in my opinion is necessary to lose the belly fat once and for good. I was thinking about starting the gaining diet this week but decided to get to at least 140 lbs and see where the stomach is right then.

My coach put me on a band regiment, and its amazing, ripping the muscle fibers inlays I couldn’t with just plain old weights. Tonight’s leg session will be awesome for sure, ialready excited. Problem is that I hate doing legs at Lifetime fitness, it’s great to be a24/7 gym but their leg equipment is lacking.
