I don’t think one bad day is that very indicative of anything. Also, I’ve never tried the Anabolic diet, or any other diets, so I can’t speak for their success. I will say that you can try smaller jumps in adjusting your calories. Maybe start with a more traditional diet and adjust your calories based on your goals (while experimenting with macros)?
I only suggest this, seeing as you seem to be having a difficult time adjusting to the Anabolic diet, and I’m not sure why somebody would want to…
Well, if your lifts aren’t suffering… I would just champion through it… see how long you can handle it but don’t beat yourself down into the ground if your lifts start to drop, you start feeling run-down all the time, etc.
What other diets have you tried? Perhaps your body might operate better on lower fats and higher carbs on a regular basis, and you could try a carb cycling solution?
Edit: Personally, I wouldn’t count fibrous carbs either… My personal opinion is that you are very low at roughly 2,200kcal a day… you might not have to go down that low to cut… if you have ever heard of reverse dieting, it is possible to lean out and eat more at the same time so I wouldn’t be so dogmatic in your approach…[/quote]
Hm, u intriqued me with reverse dieting, what are the basics of it? I’ll google it later anyway.
Well i trued Poliquin high fat high prot diet and for me it works much better than high carb diets.
My lifts were suffering yesterday, so i’ll go back to maintanence tomorrow. I’ll just increase my cals to 3100 or so. Thats almost 700 cals increase, do u think its not gonna cause me gain fat?
A lot of ppl online had more than great results with AD, both in terms of fat loss and muscle gain, so i’ll stick to eat and c how i go. I have a good feeling about the whole this diet:).
The last couple of days i have been eating around maintenance level, that is 3100 cals (if thats my maintenance at all lol) and my strength is back where it was before and i feel much better. I will keep doing so coz apperently ppl that are starting this diet get leaner and more muscular on the initial maintenance phase.
