Hey guys, I’ve discovered T-Nation and have really enjoyed learning about the wealth of diet and training information that’s on here. It’s really one of the best sites I’ve come across, and probably my favorite
With that being said, I still had some questions, so I found this forum to post them.
Training History: About a year, didn’t make much progress because I messed around with my own workout plans/diet. I’ve only just now started doing a plan I found on here, 5/3/1, and actually eating enough
I consider myself to be skinnyfat. Physique pic is uploaded at bottom for your critical feedback, please do not hold back. I don’t have any muscle, and the fat I do have is primarily around my abdomen.
My question is, from what I’ve read on here, there’s a lot of differing viewpoints regarding nutrition. I’ve seen articles recommend low carb, carbs only around training, no carbs in the morning, no carbs at night, etc.etc. This is obviously a lot of differing viewpoints, and how do I approach this?
I should make it clear that I do have a basic understanding of diet. I track my macros and calories, and eat clean literally 99% of the time. Basically oats, sweet potatoes, chicken, eggs, almonds, vegetables. I’m starting out around 2000 calories, 170g Protein, 75g Fat, and whatever I have left is carbs.
Basically main question, what type of diet strategy should I utilize for my bodytype, considering I’m both skinny and fat at the same time?
