Best way to lose weight and stay fit, the Army says I need to, have suggestions?
I don’t need to lose much weight. Maybe 5–10lbs, honestly I am happy with my body as is, but want to be more light weight to help with my run. I actually just ran my fastest 2 mile yet. To give you an idea my last 2 weigh ins after PT test I was 177 and 178lbs. I was weighed this week after a PT test in which I ran my fastest 2 mile.(Only about 5 seconds faster, but hey improvement is something) This time I weighed 182lb.
Almost always max push-ups and sit-ups and have improved my run since I have enlisted. I am only about 20 points away from maxing the entire PT test. Haven’t failed a PT test since I have been in. I was extremely pissed considering some of the jumbo dumbos I see in the military in general and here they are taping me. Fucking joke.
My biggest worry is I will compromise my energy and current muscle if I started cutting too much food back. I’ve gained weight since I have been in, but I feel stronger and more powerful than I have just about ever in my life. I can’t imagine it is ALL fat. Although when they tape that is what they make it sound like it is.
I like what I weigh at the moment and honestly considering weight can fluctuation a good amount in a day I personally have no issues with my own body or weight. The Army however says my measurements of neck, waist, height and weight I was exactly 1% over what I should be and I should weigh less for my height. This can you get flagged, which can cause problems. I am fine now, but don’t want this to be an issue in future.
How do I attack this problem? I’ve tried cutting back before, but honestly I hated it! I was still hungry and felt tired and recovery felt slower like I was depriving my body to a degree.
Don’t see understand the logic of it if I can out PT most of the dam company yet are worried about this. Seems stupid to me. But I digress…
