probably non existent,......... (serious answer) can't remember the last time it was checked


So when do we get to TMI, just want to know so I'm not the only fool in the pool

The more you can boost it the more belly fat you will burn without doing anything. You really think those guys do p90x to look like that ? :nonoNO: Get it checked and fixed and weight loss will come at a faster pace.

I think I already dove in the pool and just floating around :lol:

So, I noticed I was carrying about 10 lbs too much, and had to pick up the pace and change some habits to get back to my ideal weight. btw that is 172 lbs for me. I have to do a "tour" in the operations center and have not been as active. I stopped all Soda, use raw coconut "sugar" instead of real sugar, run 3-5 miles every 2nd day, and when home, mountain bike as fast as I can for 30 mins on the trails around my place on days I don't run. I take a rest every 5th day, then start again. I have also gone back to the dojo as there is a Vale Tudo school not far from me, and I have somewhat of a schedule. Helps me strengthen my core and burns a huge amount of calories but is only 1-2 times a month for me.

1 month in and I am 4 lbs short of my goal, but I'm also replacing fat with muscle and that's ok. :)

Seems like you know your body well and can shape it when you need to reach a set goal. I would also suggest a T booster for you such as T-bomb II sold online at A-1 supplements or any supplement store. Less work and more fat burning just standing still.

Yeah the T-booster will help you lose body fat, gain lean muscle.

Well you are making progress so keep doing what you are doing until you hit a plateau. Then you will have to up the game. I would still get the T level checked tho.

You need a protein supplement(shake) 30 minute window right after a weight training session  or workout for best absorption. Add more protein to your diet in general to keep from burning the muscle instead of the fat. You should not be burning lean muscle tissue for fuel!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

But, what is your diet and what is your training routine?

thanks for asking syb

i think at this time my problem is i'm probably taking in too few calories

my diet is something i came up with over several months and it looks much like a paleo diet,

the main thing is i removed "bad foods" and added "good foods"

added healthy oils (animal fats, coconut oil), raw milk, grass fed beef, etc.

cut grains and grain products (do eat some but much less), no commercial oils (this makes supplementing difficult - most protein powders have canola, etc oils) avoid sugars, but do eat a large quality of good quality ice cream, avoid commercial chicken, commercial  beef, commercial  pork and farm raised fish

i've been in and out of the gym for over 35 yrs.....these days i'm in an "out of the gym" period but do minor lifting to keep some strength with light and heavy dumbbells

Go slow and light, spread your feet a little more than shoulder width. After a month or so you  can go wider with your stance and switch it up thereafter. Get some knee compressions or wraps to be safe. Add a little weight when you feel you can.

If you want a butt like this it has to be done, no pain no gain!!
