I'm about 180, 12% body fat (I'm sure a bit more when I get back from vacation). I realize Stronglifts is a beginner's program, but I've never had any formal training so I figure there is as good a place as any to start. I really do want to perfect my form, and Stronglifts gives the opportunity to do that. I've done a few diets since originally loosing weight (at my largest I was 265 about three years ago), tried to stay low to no carb, I've also done alternating carb and no carb every other day. I'm thinking when I get back I'm going to follow the six small meals a day, and absolutely no carbs after 3P.M. Any thoughts on particular diets? I realize eating clean is key, and I try to do that whenever possible.
I'm also using my newfound laziness to my advantage; I've always wanted to bulk up muscle wise, but since loosing almost 100 pounds I've been afraid to eat the way I need and put on weight to convert it to muscle. I figure with the weight I'm going to put on, combined with a diet and the Stronglifts routine, I'll be good to go. The main thing I'm looking for is to bulk up my upper body, while loosing my stomach (isn't everyone?). So how do you guys eat? What works for you?
