Glad I'm not the only one that almost passed out, I knew exactly why it happened and started laughing about how close I came to taking a nose dive

Also, where u getting this 8 gm of protein for pinto beans? The pinto beans can I eat from has 30 grams of protein with 450 total calories for 1 can.

I am not concerned about strength at this point. My main concern is cutting fat, flexibility and toning. I want my body to FEEL really good. I'll slowly build strength, but unless my lower back, etc all are flexible and ready to go 100% I'm not gonna concern myself with lifting heavy heavy weights to gain strength.

I'm 5'7, about 160.

I've decided to try and do this:

1 pm to 2 pm: workout
2:30 pm: 2 slices of toast with butter, 2 glasses of milk
3 pm: 2 small bananas
4:30 pm: Chicken salad/Sandwich
7:45 pm: Pinto beans (whole can), cheese, guac, sour cream, salsa

Not sure how many calories that is...but it seems like a decent enough schedule for now. I'm staying at a hotel..so it is a little bit tough to eat exactly a perfect diet (not that I want to haha) since I can't cook often.

Well, whether you're on the bandwagon or not ACSM and the ADA both recommend higher protein intake for people working out. If you want to retain muscle while cutting weight you up your protein intake level, what you're basically doing is a crash diet, your body is going to sacrifice muscle and break it down. It's not a matter of lifting heavy weights or even strength training, you say you want to "tone" but toning is just a result of muscle mass and lower body fat levels.

Your diet just doesn't seem all that good IMO, and will probably lead to you gaining back whatever weight you're trying to lose in addition to losing a decent amount of muscle mass you have now. It's not sustainable and seems pretty bad.

Anyone have any tips on pull up progression? I'm trying to implement them into my routine, right now I have to use the assistance machine with 90lbs just to do three sets of five.

Yes I know that's weak.

Try this app
https://play.google.com/store/apps/d....pullups&hl=en

It's pretty good helping with progression, if you can only do 2-3 pull-ups unassisted try doing them and just building on it every day or every other day.


And it's not weak, everyone has to start somewhere.

Those assistance machines will get you nowhere.

Do however many real pullups that you can, even just one or two. Rest, then do it again. Rest then again. At this point the appropriate muscles will be warmed up and stimulated. Now go over to the Lat Pull Down machine and with relatively light weight bang out a set or two of 10 reps. As you pull, focus on the muscles that you just wrecked on the pullups.

Are there any specific foods that actually target fat cells and break them down?

Or is exercise/cardio and reducing fat intake the only solution?

There are some foods out there that set the stage for the release of fatty acids from fat stores (ex. coffee, tea, etc) but I don't think there are really any foods that directly break them down.

And +1 on Rolando's edit.

Yes, but not to the point your barely eating any carbs. I always use the 'fist rule', in other words my carb portions are no bigger than my fist. Try to make meat and veggies your main meals.

And as I always preach, make water your main beverage of choice!
