Body weight is determined by your diet. It is around a 80-20 split between diet and exercise in determining your weight. Yes, if you go crazy with cardio and never let up you can get away with eating bad food consistently. I am doing the opposite and eating right, but I am exercising too. I consistently walk for about an hour a day in total and S Health on my phone monitors it for me. The main area that I have been working on has been in resistance training in the gym. I am trying to up strength while keeping a slight downward trend in weight. So far it has been working. I have kept under 190 for about two weeks now and my lifts are slowly going up. I am doing a simple routine that takes about 30 minutes twice a week. It is a combination of machines and free weights. It’s four exercises for 5 sets of 5 reps each. I start with 5 sets of 5 reps of squats using two 55 lb. dumbbells. I alternate those sets with one arm bent over rows using a 55 lb. dumbbell using a bench. I count my breathing one on an inhale and two on an exhale up to 30 in between reps. After the squats and rows, I go to the leg press machine and have moved up to 5 sets of 5 reps at 330 lbs. (the max is 350 lbs.) up from 270 lbs. when I started a few weeks ago. I attempted 350 lbs. for the first set today and it was too much. After squats, I move to the fly machine and dot 5×5 at 150 lbs. I have steadily been moving up at the fly from around 90 lbs. as I am somewhat double jointed at the shoulder. I have been really happy with my progress and I feel like in the months since I started this 5×5 routine, I have been getting way more compliments on how I look. The goal is get my metabolism burning more fuel so that I can chow down on some healthy proteins and fats and not have to worry about counting calories too closely. I am logging everything on MyFitnessPal. Logging has been giving me a good intuition on how many calories are in standard things I eat which makes me very positive for my future.
