Default Need Some Good Ideas of Foods That Will Help Me Drop About 10 Pounds

Hey guys, it has been awhile since i posted on here but I have had good sucess so far and have just a little more time ahead of me before I can honestly say I looked ripped. I'm not going for big bulk but rather speed since I enjoy running and other endurance workouts/competitions. I am 19 Male, 5'11, 150 lbs. My body is in pretty good shape since I constantly workout and I figure if i lose 10 more pounds or even less then I will have a six pack, right now the only flab left on me all seems to be around my stomach unfortunately. Currently I eat a lot of low fat foods and drink a lot of water along with eating sensible portions for each meal. Can anyone give me a list of good foods to eat while on a weight loss diet that can be found at any normal grocery store. Also, a list of foods/drinks to avoid would probably also be helpful but I pretty much know what foods I shouldn't eat and I avoid non diet soda completely. I'm just tired of some of the healthy meals I eat over and over again and any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks in advance for the suggestions.

At 5'11" 150# the last thing you need to do is drop 10#. Yikes!!! You are at your ideal weight for your height. 140# would put you underweight. With a low fat diet and 140# you will most likely start burning muscle, which isn't going to help at all.

I'm not sure how much you have lost already, but the "flab" may just be stretched skin from a previous weight. If that is the case then you will have to wait until the skin shrinks.

Dude, you need to put on weight. No way you need to drop with those stats.

Default Any More Suggestions???

Okay, because I thought that by the time I got to 150 I wouldn't still have fat around my midsection but for some reason I still do. I started my diet and excercise/lifting program almost exactly a year ago and I have gone from about 180 to 150 depending on the day I weight myself. All the fat on my body is gone besides my stomach is still a little pudgy for some reason. I work my abs out a little bit but too much sit ups and knee ups kill my back even when I workout with a trainer who makes sure I am doing the excercises with the correct form(I have a messed up back from playing basketball). I was about to just slow down on the wieght loss and start lifting heavily to gain muscle but I really wanted to have a six pack before I stopped trying to cut weight. Is it just a matter of time before I lose the fat in my midsection or am I doing something wrong? Thanks for the advice so far.

Default Also....

Also I guess I better ask you all to make sure I really am eating as well as I think I am. About how many calories and carbs and grams of fat should someone my age/weight/height eat each day to make sure I am not putting on fat. I do cardio 30-40 min 6 days per week and 30 min lifting 4-5 times a week.

It does take time depending on what we are looking at. My thinking still is it is excess skin that hasn't shrunk back, but can't tell for sure yet.

Can you describe what exactly your midsection looks like? Does it apear as if it is a "beer belly" with firm skin or is it very soft, droopy and you can move the skin around. If you were carrying around 180# for a long time and lost 30 very quickly then I would say it is excess skin, but since you are so young the skin should shrink back fairly quickly. How fast did you lose the weight?

I understand having a messed up back. I have 2 slipped disks in my lower lumbar and frankly I am not going to concern myself too much with my abs. The last thing I need is pinching nerves again and I was very lucky. Last year I was told I would never regain feeling in my left foot, but it did come back and I don't want to mess it up. You may have to settle with what I will settle with, whatever I can obtain from just losing fat in that area and building muscle everywhere else. A washboard stomach is nice, but it isn't everything ;)

I can give you a detailed report of your necessary intake of not only calories, carbs, and fat, but protein and all vitamin and minerals if you PM me what you do for cardio, your heart rate before and after, approximately what your cardio exercise equivilent in miles for 30 minutes is, and how strenuous your cardio workout is on a scale from 1 to 10 (with 1 being no effort and 10 being extreme effort lungs at capacity). Also the same 1-10 scale for your lifting workouts.

If anyone else would like such a report just PM me (don't everyone jump me at once though).

i would def say that if you're 5'11 at 150lbs your a little too thin...keep up with the cardio...weight lift...eat sensibly...maybe you want to try more protein into your diet either a protein supplement or more chicken, tuna, egg whites....if you lose another 10 i can't picture you looking healthy...

Tell us what your eating. I venture to guess your diet sux and that is why you retain fat. A little hint. Don't mix your carbs and fat in a meal.
