Week 8: Progress update

Has it already been 2 months already!? Since the beginning of August, I have lost approximately 7kg and I am looking the leanest I have ever been. Sorry guys, no progress photos for now... I am currently working on a new youtube video.

Who's that pokemon ?

Current stats:

Weight:                83.8kg
Body fat:             11%
Shoulders:            53.5
Chest:                  45.5
Waist:                  30.5
Upper arm:          16.5
Forearm:              13.5
Thigh:                 24.5
Calf:                    16.5

Update to diet:
  • I have reduce my Sodium intake to <2000mg to remove any excess water that I am holding onto under my skin. I have resorted to using flavours from onion, garlic and chili to help make my food taste a little bit better. LoL.
  •  I am being consistent with my daily intake of water of 4 litres. This will help keep my muscle bellies appear fuller as my carbohydrate intake decreases.
  • I have also increased the amount of fibre (from green vegetables) to help with some issues with bloating.

Week 5: Progress update

I'm still here! Apologies for not updating regularly in the past 2 weeks. (My life: Work, Gym, Eat, Girlfriend, Dota, Sleep) Anyway, I think it's time for Progress update number 2! Check it out!

LOL. I swear I did not tan my forearms only.

Abs starting to show finally...

Hit that bicep shot!
My impression: I think my progress is definately heading in the right direction. The weight is coming down gradually. It appears that I am still holding onto some body fat, however, that should be no issue as I will be further dropping my carbohydrates to ~160g in about a week. Other than that, I think the cuts are coming out nicely and gradually. What do you guys reckon?

Current stats:

Weight:                86.5kg
Body fat:             13%
Shoulders:            53.5
Chest:                  46.0
Waist:                  31.0
Upper arm:          16.5
Forearm:              14.0
Thigh:                 24.5
Calf:                    16.5

"Mark, where are your legs???"
They are lagging behind the rest of my body, but here they are anyway.

Yes, it is a small picture.
Yes,  I am standing on a chair.
And yes,  I am only wearing one sock.
