Okay, break it down for me: What are your workouts right now, and what are you eating?

(Because I've got 3 weeks to strip off excess pounds without losing the hard-earned muscle, and it sounds like this is working for you)

The workouts I am doing are the Tabata exercises that I posted.  They are really working me hard with turning my weight workout in to HIIT, which for me is really working on making the muscle start to pop and slim at the same time.  I also do 15-30 min of cardio, typically walking maybe jogging every other day.

My daily diet is pretty much as follows:

Wake-up = 24g protein shake (mine is soy and whey mixed)

Breakfast = 2 eggs + 4 egg whites scrambled with a serving of shredded sharp cheddar, one serving of oatmeal with real maple syrup (friend makes it for me  Cheesy ) and a serving of Splenda brown sugar

Second Breakfast = 2 hardboiled eggs and a protein shake (24g protein)

Lunch = Whole can of tuna with serving of mayo on a slice of whole grain bread that has 10g of protein

(non-workout) Snack = Protein shake and a serving of fruit

(workout) Snack = 24g protein shake 30 min before and again 30 min after

Dinner = This is typically what my wife and daughter eat, but I try to keep it under control and make sure to get my desired amount of protein, but if I am on my own Turkey - salami sandwich on whole grain bread, mustard, lettuce, and tomato with a whopping 50g of protein.

Second Dinner = Milk + Casein Protein for a total of 30-40g of protein

Interesting; I get a lot more cardio and eat about 3/4 what you do...but then I'm 20 years older, so my metabolism almost certainly isn't as fast as yours and needs the cardio to keep the fat off. Plus my body type is somewhere between a mesomorph and an endomorph, so my body likes to pack on mass to begin with--muscle mass if I'm working out, fat mass if I don't--so cardio has always been key for me to minimize fat gain.

I'm amazed that you're losing weight on that diet, though.

With me it is carbs that kill my weight loss.  As you can see I have really cut back on the carbs and in order to keep energy going I am taking in more fat and protein.  This has caused my body to turn to my stored fat as well.  I have tinkered a long time to discover this diet and really I only get around 3250 cals a day.

Today I begin my supplement routine for a competition this upcoming fall.  For the first two months I will be using strictly Gaspari Nutrition products and following it up with MuscleTech.

Gaspari Products:
Halodrol Liquigels
PlasmaJet
SuperPump250
SizeOn Maximum Performance
Mitotropin/Cytolean V.2

Currently I am at 308.4 lbs., so when I begin to diet down around August I hope to only have to lose 15-20 lbs.  The only product I will not be using from MuscleTech is the Hydroxycut, which with the new formula they have put together, IMO, is junk.

Good luck, and let me know how it goes. I've never tried a suite of supplements like that, so I'm curious how it will perform for you.

Meanwhile, I'm sidelined for a while. On top my annoying and recurring lower back injury, I seem to have strained my right rotator cuff, so that any attempt to go even moderately heavy on bench press or, to a lesser extent, shoulder presses causes a deep-seated pain that's not muscle strain. I think it must be tendon or ligament strain, which takes longer to heal, dammit.

I've decided it's my 47-year-old body tellling me it's time to take a break from the lifting routine. I'm going to give myself at least 3 weeks of total rest, then work myself back in slowly.

Sorry to hear about your shoulder, those are tough ones.  Taking an extended break is good for the body and mind once in a while.  Hope your break heals you up nice and good! 

It is quite the supplement routine I must admit.  I called my gym partners and the company to come up with my routine.  Most of it is based on my past experiences using the brand.  They were all very helpful and I got a few coupons for discounts out of it too!
