I am 25 yrs old and using Thinner Leaner Stronger I cut for 6 months and lost a total of 35 lbs! My progress pictures from before to after is about 6 months.
At my starting point I was 160 lbs and I’m not sure what my body fat percentage was then, probably around 25%-28%.
Currently I am ranging between 120 lbs and 125 lbs and my body fat percentage is now approximately 16%. And I am now currently reverse-dieting to reach maintenance macros.
I was hesitant to buy Thinner Leaner Stronger because counting macros sounded way too hard. I had just been counting calories and that was hard enough.
Finally I had had enough and bought the book and started tracking right away and at that point my progress sky-rocketed.
I have lifted for many years now so I was scared to lose muscle but even while I was cutting I was actually able to maintain my 185 lbs squat and recently even hit a PR of 205 lbs squat.
I felt like I had tried just about every diet out there. Low carb, low fat, carb cycling, diet pills, fat burners, you name it and I’ve tried it.
I thought counting your macros was only what body builders did and I thought that consisted of the same chicken and broccoli everyday for every meal.
I was happily surprised to find out how much freedom you have with it. I can still eat the things I love as long as I fit it in my macros.
Even in my cutting phase, I felt like I was eating more food than ever before because I was actually fueling my body with enough protein and a healthy amount of carbs and fats.
I now LOVE counting my macros and don’t plan on ever stopping!
I have never truly been this healthy in my life. I feel strong and sexy and finally have the confidence I have always wanted.
I get asked all the time what I’m doing to have lost so much weight and I tell them Thinner Leaner Stronger baby!
If I can do it anyone can do it! Thank you for helping me achieve something I never thought was possible!!
