I realize that after a 120 lb weight loss, I’m still flabby and just a smaller version of my old fat self. I’ve lost a tremendous amount of muscle while only doing cardio, eating probably for most of the time, below BMR calories, and going extremely low-carb. (I know, I was very stupid, especially calorie wise and training-wise)
I’m a carb-sensitive person (I got a whole family who’s pretty much diabetic, and I’m addicted to carbs), so I know I can’t go the typical 50% of the total diet carbs type of thing.
I’m flabby and a “skinny fat person”. I want to get the ripped look, but I KNOW I need to regain alot of that lost muscle before I try to lose FAT this time, not weight.
Are there any suggestions. I’ve recently picked up the “anabolic diet” and I’m currently trying that with a small caloric surplus. Do you think this is the best way to go about it, or should I follow a more moderate approach to muscle gain? Please Oh Great Vets, help a noob out! I hate my flabby self!
