Ive got some questions, here they are:
1) I am following a 2500kcal/day diet eating about 500 more calories on training days. My weight measurements for the past 3 weeks (including my initial measurement) are as follows:
W0 = 265
W1 = 263
W2 = 262
W3 = 261.8
What the hell is happening here? I know my appetite has been reduced by a significant margin because when I went home for memorial day weekend I noticed immediately how fast I got full. I am also eating between 500 and 1000 calories below maintenance according to my records.
2) Joint pain. Holy shit my joints are in pain. I feel like I got in a boxing match with Mike Tyson. I am trying to include 1 set near my 5RM for strength maintenance before hitting the timed supersets and trisects. Maybe I should drop the heavy lifting totally and go with a more circuit focused program?
3) For the first two weeks I had more energy. Oddly, I needed less sleep to feel more awake and my mood improved. This changed during the third week when my weight loss stalled. Maybe this isn't a coincidence.
4) If I eat too much protein I feel like I am going to puke. My diet statistics indicated I get about 40% calories from fat, 20% from protein and 40% from carbs. When I eat more protein I feel more full, but also feel more sick. Is there any sustainable way to combat this?
