Hi everyone, I could use some advice. I have been dieting for the last couple of years and lost over 140 pounds. To do this I’ve gotten progressively stricter so that for the last few months I’ve just been getting by on 2 scoops of protein with 2 cups of milk 4x day. My gut has gone from 56" to 38ish" but I seem to be stuck and my strength gains are crap (been training about 20 years so not a newbie but not very strong these days.)
My question is does it make sense to scrap the milk and instead have my 4 shakes with a big salad or mixed frozen veggies each time. Would probably dump some salad dressing on there as that would give me some fats. I figure this would slash the carbs and sugar in all the milk and hopefully a dress any micronutrients deficiencies leading to fat loss and strength gains. At this point the salads and veggies would be a tasty treat lol. The change would also drop my protein from 273grams a day to 200 grams plus whatever is in the veggies.
Last I checked (couple of weeks ago) I was 233 pounds and according to my skin calipers this morning I’m 22.8% body fat…allegedly…lol.
Thanks for reading and any help would really be appreciated, it can be hard to maintain objectivity when it comes to yourself.
