After having followed various 5/3/1 programmes and eating a lot more than usual, I have managed to make some fantastic strength gains. However, as I have been eating a lot more, I have also gained both muscle (my legs don't fit my trousers anymore) and also some fat.
So for next 12 weeks (6 before Xmas, 6 after), I would like to focus on some fat loss (while limiting the decrease in strength).
I am thinking of starting by running the 6 weeks to super-hero programme but wondered about nutrition while on the program. My target is the following (I weigh 84kg / 185# with about 14-15% body fat):
1750 calories total 160g-p; 40g-f; 200g-C (36%-20%-44%).
Breakfast: 50-55 grams protein, 10-20g fat
Lunch: 50-55 grams protein, 10-20 grams fat, 25-50 grams carbs (from fruit and vegetables only, no starch)
Dinner: 50-55 grams protein, 5-10 grams fat, 125-150 grams carbs
Peri-workout nutrition (as normal 80-100g Carb, 60g Protein).
Would this work with the 6 week to super hero plan, or is it too little? I like the idea of restricting calories, so should I consider something like a sprint based programme instead?
Thanks in advance for any advice.
