Nutrition & Dieting/My current health status and further guidance


I am a male. My age is almost 18.
My weight is 87 kg. My height is 5 feet , 7 inches. My body fat percentage is 27%. I have been over weight for many years.
I am not getting much improvement. I have been going to the gym for 6 months and doing some strength training. I have gained some good amount of muscles. But I am not losing weight. My weight is only increasing.
I have excess fat on chest, belly, butts, and thighs.
Please tell me what do you think about my current health condition. And also suggest some methods, so that I may lose weight.
Thank you.

Hello Amer,

I'm glad that you've decided to make a change in your life. Self improvement is always a good thing.

I'll start with the weight gain. Lets say you lost a little bit of fat and you gained a little bit of muscle. Muscle itself weighs more than fat so it's normal to see weight gain when going to a gym sometimes, depending on your training.

Your training should be intense. Too many people pick a re range, let's say 10-12, and lift the weight for 10-12 reps. However most of the time they hit 12 but it wasn't until failure. i.e they could have done more and this is known as under-training. So you need to make sure your workouts are intense and you're not wasting your time at the gym.

Secondly you should take a look at your diet. You can do some research online about the best foods to eat and if you really do your research you can calculate what you need.

I offer personalised training and eating plans for my online clients for $10 each. IF you're interested I will send you all the details I need in order to create both plans to help achieve your goals.

I hope this has helped.

As an ISSA certified personal trainer it is my job to provide nutrition plans on a daily basis for my clients and offer nutritional help to those in need. I believe that nutrition is one of the most important aspects to getting into shape. My reason being is that if you workout out for one hour, four times a week then that's only 2% of your week. If you sleep 8 hours a night that's another 33%. So during the other 65% of your time it's nutrition that makes changes in peoples lives. So focusing more on nutrition has helped many of my clients get the results they wanted.
