Ill admit that im a dieting NOOB.I have no problem putting on 5-10 pounds if i really wanted to.
Ive come to a point where i have tried a few low carb diets.I just cannot stick with low carbs.I may do it for a few weeks but in the end i just give up,it just doesnt suit my lifestyle or taste buds.
My question is that im trying to lean up for the upcoming summer.Since i refuse from now on to do any low carb diets my options are limited..or are they?
My goal apart from fat loss is to maintain what i have (muscle size) im not interested in gaining much more muscle (for now). Im currently 6'4 and hover around 255 pounds.
I have never been a big eater.So i was thinking of doing a diet where i consume carbs and protein but keep the calories really low. Just for example say my diet looked like this:
meal 1 & 2 chicken breast & rice
meal 3& 4 fish & sweet potato
protein shake with carbs and fruit in between some of those meals
Now that would be very few calories for a guy my size but i would have no problem with eating so few calories.Always been a skinny kid with not much of a appitite.
What im trying to get at is would the diet i mentioned lead to fat loss AS well as muscle loss.Id be doing my heavy lifting 4-5 times weekly with extra cardio thrown in im just interseted in keeping as much muscle as possible.
Ive read the V-diet and that just sounds brutal and some of the reviews i have seen from a few of the big boys in T-Cell Alpha lead me to believe that this would not be the way to go.plus i like eating food.Having shakes 6 days a week is not my idea of fun.
Any help would be appreciated.
