whats up guys. finally found an excuse to join the T-Nation forums; i look forward to speaking with most of you.
i’ve been naturally bodybuilding for 4 years; diet and training are better than ever these days. i have, however, been cutting for the last few months from 15 or 16 percent bodyfat, and i’m now approaching the single digits. i’ve never been this defined and it looks and feels better every day.
i have a very slow metabolism. i use obvious methods to combat this (early cardio 4x/week, low to medium carbohydrate intake, high training instensity, you know the drill), and my body has responded better than i had anticipated.
my question is about fat intake. i’m aware of the pro’s of a healthy amount of fat in one’s diet, but how much is TOO much. on such a low-carbohyrdate diet, fats are naturally sometimes a little higher than i’d like. i limit my red meat to 5 or 6 times a week because i’m honestly a pussy about messing this up.
i’m looking for a natural bodybuilder with fat boy genetics’ advice on his fat intake while trying to reach 7 or 8 percent bodyfat. i expected to find tons of articles with good numbers/percentages for an individual in my specific situation, but surprisingly they’re few and far between. thanks in advance, i look forward to hearing from yall.
