    First post

    Wanted to post and see what everyone thought, I’m totally new to everything so don’t be too harsh. 46 years old, 6’3” started out 279 and done 5 lbs the first month. Lift 2 days a week and cardio 3 days. Try to count macros on the Macros app (2400 calories). First month seems like a good change in pics but wasn’t sure if the 5lbs I lost was enough? I’d like to shoot for 2/week if possible. Any tips, etc would be helpful. I have before and 1 month pics if that helps just wasn’t sure if what I’ve got would be worth posting.

    Thanks

    losing 5 pounds per month is fine, but you can afford to lose a bit more for now. lower your calories if you want to lose weight faster

    i'd recommend prioritizing lifting, so weight training 3x a week (assuming you're doing a full body program) and cardio is optional

    Hi. I’ve been on a cut now for 9 months and lost 50 pounds. I can’t tell you how important it is to lift weights on a regular basis. I do a full body workout focused on big compound movements. Barbell back squat, bench press, rows, military press and deadlifts. I would lift weights 3 times a week if I were you mate. Good luck

    Also try to keep your protein around 1.5G per pound of body weight so while your cutting you don’t lose lean muscle.....not what you want.

    Thanks. I try to get around 240 grams of protein. I lift (full body routine) 3 times a week and do cardio 30 mins 2-3 times a week. The pics look like I’m losing inches but the scale is still at 272. I wish I would have measured inches before I began.

    That's more protein than you need. If you like eating that much it's fine - but just so you know you have the flexibility to push it as low as about 130g without worrying about losing muscle. Protein calculations are sometimes based on bodyweight which doesn't work out correctly if you are on the heavy side.
