  • Hello,

    I am a 6'6" male and about 290 lbs (My weight fluctuates often)
    I have never been physically "fit"
    I've never been massively overweight but at the moment I believe I can lose around 45 lbs easily.
    I would like to cut the weight, tighten any loose skin I have from previous weight loss, and build muscle as well.
    Can anyone give Me any opinions or suggestions as far as diet and workout routine to achieve my goals?

    • To Imperious1, I would say start off with a protein intake of 1.5gms per LEAN BODY WEIGHT, and about 1.5-1.75gms of of LBW.....spread that over 5-7 meals a day......do moderate intensity cardio for about 30-45 mins a day 4days a week and possibly up to 6 days a week. Have about 50% of your carbs spread between post workout and your breakfast.......keep your last meal or last two meals protein and higher veggies as you decrease your carbs.

      Hey Alex, congrats on the article in the newest Flex where Melvin brings you up and gives you props for getting "LEAN!" What are your thoughts on the Chris Aceto books?

        Thanks allot, I have not seen his books but do like his style of prep and the guy does know his stuff. Im assuming the books are on diet or contest prep. Anyways...The guy seems to be very knowledgable.

          • Question??? I keep hearing about the Palumbo diet (high protein, high to moderate fat, no carbs) Can anyone suggest some good sources of fats. Im 5'8" 175 with about 15% body fat.
            Also is it true that Gaspari's SIZE ON, SUPER PUMP, and PLAZMA JET only works when on a high carb diet?
            I hope to get some good advise. Thanks

              I can answer a bit about your first question....almonds are a good source of fat. I Dont like peanut butter as it doesnt work with my high carb diet. Too high in calories( very calorie dense). Im talking contest prep mode..

              Sorry about the other stuff.. I dont comment on products other than Muscletech.

                  • Beginner's Workout?

                    Hi Alex,

                    Would you recommend the Big 3 (Compound Exercises: Bench, Deadlift and Squats) as the most basic fundamentals for a beginner to build strength before embarking on specific body part training?

                    Thanks

                        I would. You can never never get away from those big 3. In my opinion you must always include those exercises as a beginner or pro.

                                If your pretty lean for your height then thats great.. Size is over rated if you are not lean.. Meaning, I would not put on weight just to do so unless its good clean muscle and even then, how far would you want to go. For your height you sound big enough..
