So I’m still considered a noob to weight lifting. I have never rly stuck with a diet or eaten properly, I actually tend to under eat. Like 1500-2000 calls a day, sometimes less. After eating this way I’m currently 5’10, at 205lbs at probably like 25% bf. I’m basically skinny fat, no visible abs. I’m trying to change this but every time I try to diet I usually fail bc I try to much to quick. So Ive tried to form a diet off stuff like the 7 healthy habits etc and came up with something that has macros like this:
180g protein, 150g carbs, 65g fat.
Which totals around 1800 cals. Everyone says to not focus on any of this stuff and just eat better. Well thats what it turned out to be and I’m just curious that even if cals are that low (though more than I normally eat) can I still improve body comp, maybe drop to below 20% bf and gain some muscle in the process?
Once this becomes 2nd nature I’ll obviously add cals but for now this is what I’d eat daily, but on workout days I’d add a little more carbs and protein.
So is it possible to see improvement even though im eating only 1800 or so kcals?
