At my heaviest, I was 230lbs roughly 30% body fat. 2 years later (1 year of Bigger Leaner Stronger) at 160lbs 11-12% body fat.
At my heaviest, I was 230lbs, roughly 30% body fat, maybe more. Then decided to get in shape, (starving myself and a lot of cardio) and dropped to about 188lbs and around 25% body fat. Got tired of that and stopped for a while. Then I found Bigger Leaner Stronger and it all moved really fast from there.
I cut again (using Mike’s principles this time) and dropped to about 20% body fat at 173 lbs. I was still unhappy with my overall look, so I decided to really dig in one more time. Started in January of 2018 and cut till May 1st, now at 160lbs at 11-12% body fat.
Started with the 4-day split, and now moved on to the 5-day split. ALMOST ready to upgrade to the Beyond Bigger Leaner Stronger.
I tried every diet you could think of — Keto, Paleo, had a coach at one point, and even just plain starving myself. None of them worked for me. Your video about flexible dieting really made me want to give it one more shot. I am glad I did.
My favorite aspect was your no BS attitude towards all aspects of lifting and dieting. Straight and to the point. Once you get some traction with consistency you realize it’s a lifestyle more so than dieting.
The diet is far and beyond easier to adhere to. The training side with heavy lifting is loads more fun than any other high rep crap I have tried.
The beach ain’t so bad no more. I also have a completely new wardrobe!
Literally everyone, from my brother to my grandmother.
Consistency is key, once you get that down it all becomes really easy. Also, start saving money for some new clothes, they ain’t cheap!
