As the topic suggest, my fat loss has stalled and Im just curious what other members around here would do in my situation.
I’ve been dieting for 7 weeks now using a very low carb approach. I consume trace amount of carbs on off days and I have a Surge on training days (4 days a week full body). 2400 cals a day, with 250grs protein. I do 30 mins of low intensity cardio after training and play BBall for a few hours on the weekends. Im 5’10" started the diet at 210lbs and im currently standing at 180lbs 12BF% (using a 7 site skin fold).
Im a natural ectomorph that can easily handle carbs, but found it easy to lose fat without them. For almost three weeks now I’ve seemed to have stalled at 180, my weight won’t budge (although I appear slightly leaner, maybe dryer). I feel like I hit my first real plateau, what would you do in this situation? More cardio? Eat less (hope not)? I’ve considered frequent carb ups, but haven’t done this because I don’t know if its needed.
Im actually leaning towards a carb up day every 5-7 days (oatmeal, brown rice and sweet potato day).
