I'm 6'4 and I've been athletic my entire life.
Before I got into road biking I was into weightlifting, so I was pretty heavy. I was around 225lbs at my peak, with a body fat % of around 11-12%. I've never been above 15% BF at any point in my life.
Since road biking has become a bigger passion than weightlifting, I've been wanting to lose weight. I'm just not sure about how to do this while staying healthy and active, because I've never had a reason to try to lose weight.
I've stopped weightlifting, and do rock climbing instead for my upper body. I enjoy it more and it results in less overall mass, while still burning calories.
I'm reducing my overall caloric intake, shooting for 200-400 under maintenance, but cheating on days where I do a lot of physical activity. I just know from experience I feel like crap after a day of heavy activity if I under eat.
Any advice is welcome. I was down to 203 after my last tour, now I'm about 208, currently shooting for the 185-190lb range.
