Max, I see no changes since the last pics you posted Have you been following the diet and cardio exactly as recommended????
I dont see much of a diffrence like the others stated. It could be your closer in the first set of pics
anyhow I hope your aware the dave diet is very restrictive. You can't be using any type of seasons that have carbs. even excessive splenda use is restricted because it defeats the ketosis process..
what do your cheat meals look like?
i agree. you keep posting pics and keep looking exactly the same. people need to give real criticism and stop just saying "great job bro! looking good!"
there's no way your following this diet correctly. from what braaq told me it is exteremly restrictive and very difficult, but you WILL drop weight if you follow it.
Max, let's go back some months ago when you were on your bulk. You did pretty well, made some nice gains and your BF was still in the double digits when you started. Nice work, you kept it fairly clean. But now when it comes to shredding the fat and getting ripped, you always hit a plateau and never seem to get threw it. That was holding you back last year at your competition, you never did the extra bit of work to get down into contest shape. I don't think it's your diet, I think your cardio is too moderate and easy going. You are afraid you will lose strength, but come on man... your on a diet right now that's supposed to help you get frickin shredded, not maintain strength and muscle. You should take advantage of this diet, start doing HIIT 3-4 times a week... if you begin losing weight like crazy, increase your protein a little. You chose this diet, and it's really good for contest prep (usually a few weeks out from the contest) too help you shed the little bit of fat you have left. I hope you take some of my advice into consideration. You really do need to make some changes, and I wish you the best of luck and stay motivated!
flex harder on your front double biceps, straighten out your back and bend your knees a little bit on your lat spread, i can see your waist coming down, keep that up, bump up your cardio just a little but not so much that itll make you lose mass, arch your back a little on that side chest, show them the chest, turn your arm out on your side triceps shot, remember flex really hard and keep it up, the weight will come down and youll improve
You do look bigger though, your rear double bi shot is great... it is just that you should not be looking bigger on this diet. You should be cutting if your following it exactly. Common bro, I know you can do it. You just have to have the willpower to follow the diet exactly and do the cardio. It all depends on how much you want it.
The reason why we say that you've gained weight is because you look fatter. Just compare the photos Thug_Life. I mean look at ur stomach in your front lat spread and rear lat spread. You look heavier end of discussion!!! Also aren't you on AAS????I believe that you had a thread a while back about starting a cycle. All are factors in your journey, to whatever your bf goal is. Best of luck.
max, i think u look better now, however u havent lost as much fat as i would expect, but ur waist is tighter. i hope ur right when u say uve been following the diet as it says. u may have to consider upping the cardio/ reducing calories. getting lean aint that hard, its just u have to push urself, u have to be hungry(literally) start implementing daily cardio, if that doesent make u loose weight u have to slash away some cals.
Out of the night that covers me,
Black as the Pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be
For my unconquerable soul.
In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.
It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate;
I am the captain of my soul.
