CT (or anyone else knowledeable),
I’ve been doing a slightly modified fat fast (I have a handfull of carbs in the diet, averaging about 50-60g/day).
The problem I’m having is that I can’t seem to eat enough. I figured my resting energy expenditure as being about 2000kcal/day. This past week I averaged probably 1300kcal/day. I’m not trying to restrict that much, I just can’t seem to eat much more than that. I’m keeping a log and that has definitely helped me make choices, but I’m finding that there are times that I have to force myself to eat something though I’m not hungry. Friday of this past week was my “big” day, I finished with 1630kcal.
I need some advice or assistance. I’m doing the OVT workouts and adding in 2 running workouts (intervals). My diet again is mainly protein (approx. 50% of my diet). The sources I’m using are low carb protein shakes, grilled chicken, tuna, and a little cheese. My fat sources are UDO’s oil, olive oil, and whatever comes from tuna, cheese or other meat sources.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. By the way, I’m 5’9 190 (not sure of my BF, last I checked was about 17%).
Thanks in advance for assistance
