Wow man, you're big. Not in a bad way, but 6'5? Damn I envy your height lol, I'm 5'9. At one point I was like 260lb now I'm down to the 180's or maybe 190's, cuz of the holidays. Too scared to check lol.Current stats: 6'5" 285.4lbs
My current plan:
- OMAD (One meal a day). 1200-2000 cals of whatever I want to eat within a 1 hour period.
- Walking. 5-10 miles a day
- Greasing the groove (Optional). Doing a few pull-ups, pushups, and dips periodically throughout the day. Mainly done to increase reps for when I reach my goal weight and start gaining muscle.
Last year this method worked really well for me. Lost 40lbs in 3 months and was right around the corner to being in the best shape of my life... But then the holidays came. TBH it wasnt the holidays that fukked me over, but it was the fact that Chick-Fil-A was down the road when I went back home. CFA used to be the bane of my existence before I moved, So I binged on CFA and that brought back my old eating habits, then rebounded from 240 to 290 over the next 5 months after that.
Now im back to doing the same routine starting around 7 days ago, and didn't go back for the holidays this time. Currently down 9.7lbs in 7 days. Most of that is water weight. I started out losing 2lbs a day, then went down to around 1lbs a day.
Looking to hit 275lbs by the end of the year, 240 by the end of Jan, then 210-220 by March.
You should consider jogging instead of walking. It's not that bad if you go very slow, and you see improvement really quick. I got to doing 3-4 miles in a few weeks, even though the first day a mile killed me.
FWIW I think you should make your exercises mandatory instead of optional. You can cut back a bit on the walking miles if you want. In my experience when I cut weight and did only cardio, I lost a lot of muscle and got weaker on all my lifts and exercises. Doing the exercises you stated 3 times a week would help a lot. You would retain muscle.
When do you do your OMAD? Before bed? My problem would always be that I would eat all my calories in the morning.
