I’m 6’2’’, 220 pounds, bodyfat unknown, but probably around 15%. I won’t type my diet because I do not have predetermined meals, but I count my calories.
Every day I get between 2000 and 2500 cal. Never below 2000, but sometimes over 2500 (max I’ve been is 2700). I eat 5-7 small meals per day, eat lots of fruits and veggies (5-7 portions per day) and eat low carb.
I’d say my ration might be around 20% carbs or less, 45% proteins or more and the rest fats. The only time I eat simple carbs is PWO. The other time, I eat Complex crabs, like oats and multigrain bread, on mornings, and even on my cheat meals, I try to not eat a lot simple carbs, save for the occasional dessert.
I train 3X a week, full body, in the 6-8 reps, majority of compounds exercises. I’ll be switching shortly on a EDT/Lactic acid training hybrid that I’m creating at the moment (I’ll keep you informed). On off-days days, I try to do some cardio, anything from walks to HIIT to rope skipping. 1 day or 2 on a week I rest.
That’s about it for my personal info. If you need more just ask.
My question is : Do you think I’m undereating? Maybe I’m consuming too low cal. for an efficient fat loss. Although I do not seem to lose muscle or even get hungry, maybe my body is on ‘‘preservation mode’’ because of the too restricted cals…?
Should I eat more? If yes, how much? I mean, If I follow the simple rule of 10-12X your bodyweight in cals for cutting, I’m ok, but still…
I’ll be weighing myself tonight, I’ll come back with the result.
One last thing, I just did 1 week of the V-diet (could not drink shakes anymore, I never liked shakes to start, but after so much shakes, I couldn’t drink them anymore, I was gagging…) and lost 5 pounds, I took 1 pound back, water weight I guess…
