I currently weigh 350 pounds, I'm 5'11",and I'm 18, but I'm strongish, I can bench 220 (3 reps) and I max my squat at 300. I'm not agile at all. I'm looking into learning a fighting style other than acting like a tank (taking hits then throwing my weight behind one solid punch).
I was wondering what I should do to drop weight quickly and to become a better fighter.
My goal weight is 180 and I've lost about 30 pounds in the last three weeks. My problem is my current diet is eating one meal a day and praying that my hunger and fatigue go away (they don't). So I really could use all aspects of advice. I'm not super physically active, I walk about a mile and a half a day after I get home, and up until recently I've been doing as many sit-ups as I can (normally around 30).
My advice: First thing learn about calories and food and nutrition, get passionate about it and know what your putting into your body.
Go for 1500 calories a day until your are your target wieght, with a bunch of small meals. Portion size is key because after eating small portions for a week your stomach starts to shrink and the hunger goes away. Stretch your stomach with large portions and you then need more food to fill it up every day!
The last weight cut diet I went on I really stripped it down:
Breakfast, 1 boiled egg. Train before lunch. Lunch was 2 portions of sashimi (tuna or salmon) plus a small soup or a chicken caesar salad (low on dressing). So nice protein but no carbs basically. During the day to keep hunger at bay I made a litre of fresh green juice - Kale, spinach, broccoli, cucumber, tumeric, carrots + a bag of apples to make it taste good, berries if you want to.
Dinner time have a regular meal, by that I mean meat carbs + veg but not a huge portion, not deep fried and not fast food. If you are gonna have to have sugar get one small thing a day and make sure its only 100-200 calories.
3 Litres of water a day.
Training, I completely changed up my routine after watching a guy train who was 50 years old and I thought he was in his early 30's. No heavy weights, everything is low impact, high repetition. No breaks between sets, once the heart rate is up keep it there for 20 minutes at least and don't let it go down. Started with 50 reps per exercise, ie. dumbell curls with 6kgs. Fast + heavy metal lol. After a few weeks I was up to 100, and do a bunch of exercises then repeat until my workout got up to 3000 reps a session and I keep it at that even now. I never get injured like I used to pumping iron, dont have that tightness in my body and generally Im much fitter and leaner while actually the same strength I always was if not stronger!
The weight absolutely poured off me, at the time I was only 20 pounds overweight but it was gone in around 10 days and I was ripped.
