I’m currently running 5x5 FSL and will soon be switching to BBB for two cycles to prepare for taking another run at Krypteia; additionally, I’m doing 2 days/week of conditioning in the form of stair climbs with an 80lb weighted vest and 3-5 days of easy conditioning. For around two years, I’d been tracking macros and calories via MyFitnessPal and while it can be a great tool, I recently decided that it’s not worth the time and effort it requires - I am not trying to win any bodybuilding competitions, and I probably don’t need to track every nutrient down to the gram as long as I’m getting the nutrients I need.
That being said, I am naturally kind of a scant eater so I was wondering if anybody had any advice as to how to ensure I’m eating the proper amount - perhaps a toned-down version of Jim’s BBB 3-Month Challenge meal plan? I’m around 180 lbs and a low-end intermediate lifter at best with an unfortunately slow metabolism running in my family, so I don’t think it would necessarily be in my best interest to be shoveling in the full ~4000 calories that meal plan prescribes.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
