I have a question on my fat loss process…
I’ve just finished 5 weeks at a -500 deficit of 2,300 after spending a previous month at maintenance of 2,800. I’ve been using a 40/40/20 split where my carbs and protein are at 225g each. With a re-feed once a week, on a day off at maintenance level (increased carbs by 125g).
Over this 5 weeks I’ve slowly added fasted steady state walking from 2 times a week to 6 times a week for 30 minutes.
I’ve been feeling great and my weight has gone down 1 – 1.5lbs per week which has been my goal, and my body is firming up, slowly but visible and you can feel it with my skin.
My 2 questions are:
With carbs, when on a fat loss, is consuming 225g a day ok to do or is it too much? What is a good guideline to follow with carbs? Should I look to bump protein up and decrease carbs?
Bump protein up 25g to 250g
Decrease carbs by 50g to 175g
Bump fat up slightly to hit the 2,300 total
Progressing forward, is it best to keep calories at 2,300 and slowly increase steady state walking by 5 mins each time fat loss stalls? And say once I hit 40-45 mins and if I haven’t reached my body composition goal yet, I shall look to decrease calories at this point?
Thank you for your help with this,
