Dude, go to the gym. if you really want it to work, you will make it work.
>>
>>35156942
Just do intermittent fasting. Eat only between 1pm - 8 pm and count calories using a phone app. Every meal will be so big that you'll feel full durring that time.
>>
>>35156974
I-I'll try, anon...

To be perfectly honest, I may actually be able to afford the nice gym without the discount, but I definitely need one with child care, because I have a
1 and a 4 y/o that I can't just dump on someone else most of the time, and my wife and I work alternating schedules.

If it were up to me, I'd join the old 24hour rat hole down the street for 1/5 the cost and train like mad, but idk what I'd do with the kids. Any advice from fellow dadbros?
>>
>>35156984
can confirm. former fatty, lost a bunch of weight on IF. IF really helps you feel satisfied especially if you're used to eating big meals, and I've found it's a good deterrent to snacking. also, you get used to not eating for extended periods pretty quickly which is useful
>>
>>35156984
Picked up my fitness pal on the sticky recommendation. Moar info on IF? Didn't come across it in the sticky
>>
>>35157035
Basically, only eat during a fixed period of the day. For example, from 1pm-8pm, or from 6pm to midnight. During that period you can eat "whatever you want," but you should keep track of calories and still set a limit and a deficit you want to achieve. People claim there are benefits to fasting and training while fasting, but even if not, it's a way to restrict intake. In my experience it's nice because you don't mindlessly snack during the day, and you get to feel more satiated than if you eat 3 or 4 small meals throughout the day (given the same total calories). During the fasting period, drink a bunch of water and coffee is also ok; you get used to not eating during that period pretty quickly and it also helps you learn to differentiate hunger from boredom

bunch of info here http://www.leangains.com/
and kinobody on youtube also has info on it, just watch like one video of his because they're all literally the same
>>
>>35156942
you were never 7% that is impossible natty.
>>
>>35157090
Interesting...
Definitely have the hunger/ boredom issue. I fucking love to eat, and portion control is a problem. I might give that a whirl, if I can find a way to make it work work my schedule (rotating 12 hr shifts).

On the bright side, my wife's preferred tastes are basically vegetarian, aside from steak, so she won't have a problem cooking to cater to a diet. I'll stock up on tuna, fish filets, and venison (I hunt, so one decent size doe or buck can last a good while) for myself, and try to go back to my old wrestling diet regimen
>>
>>35157125
No its not, senpai. In fact, it's pretty much ideal

>>35157205
im 15% you guys are retards and think 12% is 8 and that if you see an outline of your abs you're within the 15-12% range. Instead of taking the more conservative routes you fat blobs of shit want to believe you've achieved below normal levels of body fat so you can feel better about yourselves.

So I guess dexa scan is a dirty Fuggin liar then

>i guess an instrument to measure bone density was wrong in calculating my bf% then
are you literally a nigger? that's the only way you can be this stupid. clearly you can't be a woman based on your green text, but given how dumb you are there is no way you are white.

If you consider the fact that anon was likely 16-19 years old in high school, he was actually only slightly lean.

All it suggests is that you can possibly get as low as 2% before death.
>>
>>35157404
how'd you do it senpai
>>
>>35157416
2% body fat is literally impossible even with drugs.

Dropped 8 puonds in two weeks. I have utter shit fat distribution genetics so while my top four abs showed and I had soem sweet vascularity, I still have a belly roll and love handles.

EVERY SINGLE POUND OF FAT I CARRY IS IN MY MIDSECTION AND I AM VERY ANGRY.

Maybe I'll try for 9-10% come april.

wow faggot you can't even tell the clear signs of clenbuterol abuse?

>>35157462
11 isn't that lean, you don't need to go to nearly those limits to get there.
Stick with a 700 deficit, eat ~30-35% of your calories from fats, 1g/lb lean body mass protein, and the rest carbs.
