    Newbie

    Hello,

    I am new to this forum. I have joined so I can learn what I am doing wrong.
    I have been working out most of my life, on and off. My weight has fluctuated between 190 and 220. I have recently learned how to eat properly (6X a day) and have noticed some changes in my body. However, I still have way too much fat.I have very little definition. I am 5"7' and about 200lbs. For the last 6 months I have lifted 5x a week, doing one body part per day (ie. legs, arms). I have changed my lifting to 3x a week and cardio 2x a week, 20-25 min on bike.(I hate cardio). I am hoping the change will reduce my body fat. Here are my macro breakdowns per day:

    200g protein
    136g carbs
    84g fat

    I do have a cheat day, every saturday, where I eat a little more but I also drink beer. (not 10 or so, just 3 or 4).

    Any suggestions on how I can see more definition?

    What kind of food are you eating and getting the micros from, have you ever tried firday, would it be to much to ask you to post a picture? I ask these things as it would help me give better suggestions. Off the top of my head I'd ask if you have ever looked into swimming or HITT cardio?

    Your weight loss will come from your diet - if your losses slow, you know what to do.

    You appear to be eating what, about 2000 calories a day; protein is ample, fat is sufficient. There is no need to eat six meals a day - you may find it more comfortable to skip a meal or two so your remaining meals are larger. I eat breakfast late to accomplish this - I'd rather sav a bit to eat at bedtime.

    How do you feel? Perhaps start a log and list your workouts so we can see how you're training.
    Wondering where to start? Confused? "Homework 1" will get you started.

    Think you're ready for the "next step"? Take this test.

    Where would I find more information on HITT? I do interval training on the bike but I am not pushing myself to go harder on the bike.

    So, would you say I should reduce my caloric intake? I am trying to save as much muscle but lose fat. On occasion, I do skip a meal and eat more toward betime.

    I feel good. I will post a log of my workouts soon. Thanks for the info.
