    So these are the results I've had over the last 5 weeks. Started Feb 1 - March 7th. My food and training is based on the LeanGains approach by Martin Berkhan. I recommend his site.


    Diet:

    • High protein everyday. (200 g)
      Lifting days: Low fat, high carb -starchy, mostly cereal. (130 - 180 g C, 20 - 30 g Fat);
      Non-lifting days: low carbs (incidental starches, mostly veg), moderate fats (<50 g C, 60 g F)
    Training:
    3x per week (1 hour per session, 2 sets, RPT); zero cardio. Mostly compound, barbell movements.

    My activity level is very sedentary. I'm at a desk all day.

    I would consider myself untrained, so a lot of the gains are from that. I consider the lean tissue to be a little high b/c I had carbs the night before (probably around 1-3 lbs water)

    Supplements
    20 grams Xtend pre-workout (I workout fasted, not having eaten anything for about 16 hours beforehand).
    Vitamin D
    Fish Oils
    Calcium
    Magnesium (helps keep things flowing)
    Multi from Costco


    Wanted to thank John & the JSF community all these years. Hope this data set might be useful.

    Edit: forgot to mention that the pic is from my DEXA results.

    Thanks man;

    I've never felt so healthy in all my life.

    BTW, here's an updated DEXA scan.

    Still going strong.

    Pretty good, keep up the good work. I've followed the leangains approach in 2013, awesome when cutting, I got really shredded.
