Hey everybody, I really need some advice on leaning out. I’ve been trying to lean out for who knows how long, since I’ve only caught a glimpse of my abs (the top 2…) once in high school when I was playing basketball. After many misguided bulking attempts where I gained just as much body fat as muscle I have been desperately trying to lean the frack out.
I’ve been on the paleo diet for 5 months, and haven’t seen much progress. I mean I even cut out nuts, fruits, and protein shakes, thinking they might be causing some problems. I also tried calorie deficits (only eating 2000 calories, then 1800 but nothing worked). I’ve tried going to a biosignature practitioner and he recommended a lot of supplements which did nothing.
Right now I’m trying out the German Body Comp while eating real foods, still on paleo. After workouts I eat a sweet potato, but on non training days stick to a low carb diet with carbs only coming from veggies. I know it’s a long post, but would appreciate any help. Please help!
btw I am 5’11’’,175 lbs, and 18% bf, I would really like to be sub 10% and stay there but I don’t know what’s keeping me from losing fat…
I also attached my biosig stats if it will be of any help. Thank you for any advice!
