Hello everyone. I’ve been on a low-carb diet for the past 4 months–I’ve gone from 230 pounds to 194 pounds in that time period with very little loss in strength (lifts are 260 bench, 300 squat, 350 deadlift, 165 overhead press).
Recently, my weight has stalled. I’ve been doing some research and I’ve discovered that my intake of fats has been too low, so for this past week I’ve been adding more good fats to my diet (mostly from olive oil). I keep my calories very low during the day (usually around 1900-2000 with around 160 grams of protein, less than 40 grams carbs, and as of now around 80-90 grams of fat).
What I want to know is if there is anything else that I can do to get the scale moving again (such as laying off of the diet for a few weeks or changing my intake of nutrients somehow). I am a wrestler and I’m looking to make it to at least 185 pounds (so I have the option of wrestling at the 180 pound or 189 pound weight classes).
I’m on a solid lifting routine and I do some sort of endurance/conditioning outside of practice at least 3 times a week (mostly barbell complexes or some sort of Crossfit-type workout).
Thanks in advance for the help. If you need anymore details on my diet/routine, please ask.
