I’ve was eating 160 g protein, 150 g fat, <50g carbs w/ one cheat meal/week. Just this week i switched to 240 g protein, 110 g fat, <50 g carbs. I don’t eat that many calories, but have somehow managed to take my bodyfat from 6% up to 10% and now I can’t seem to drop any. I’m 32, 5’11 and weigh 185 lbs. my lifts have been consistent, deadlift is at 470, bench is around 300 and hang clean is at 270 as well as my front squat.
My main goal is fat loss as i liked being a bit lighter but still strong. I’m wondering if i should throw some more carbs in pre or post workout, or maybe have a high carb day or two, cut out the cheat meal, etc? i’ve been doing Jim Wendler’s 5 3 1 program, which i like alot. oh, and I split my food up into 4 meals and right now have a post workout shake w/60 g whey, 15 g glycine, 25 g glutamine and 500 mg phosphatidylserine. I take 9 g epa/dha via fish oil and get 8-9 hrs sleep/night.
thanks for any help/suggestions…
