I’m currently weigh in at 187lbs and ideally I would like to head into an upcoming tournament at 175lbs. I’m looking to lose some healthy weight while retaining my strength and speed as much as possible. A side note is that I train at least 6 times a week. If you could shed some light on how I could start this process that’d be great!Tuesday, October 11th, 2011
Thanks for your question, this site is meant for more general questions. Your question requires an in-depth nutrition assessment and unfortunately I don’t offer individual nutrition counselling appointments any more. That being said, I can share a general resource for athletes and weight loss by SportMedBC: 12 tips to maintain your energy and lose weight safely. I highly recommend their Performance Nutrition articles. I’m also glad you are working on this well in advance, aim to lose no more than 1.5lbs per week, this should work with your goal and timeline. You can also speak with a dietitian for free by calling 8-1-1, HealthLinkBC’s Dietitian Services.
