I am trying to shed some fat.
I started a diet plan, actually the one by Dr. Clay in his free book set you metabolism on fire. Basically low carb with macro-cycling. Thus on my weight lifting days my carbs go up.
SO on my weight lifting days I am at 2200 and on my off days at 1800 to balance out at teh end of the week and average 2000. Thus I am creating about what I think is a 200 Calorie deficiency. I am working out with some 10 min HIIT (sprinting) on my off days followed by 20 min of things like burpee’s bodyweight squats, swings and etc all in a sequence to really get my heart rate up.
Then on my weight lifting days I dont go as heavy as I try to keep my workout “explosive” and with low rest times.
For curiosity I have been tracking my weight everyday and I know you are probably no supposed to do this but my workouts have been consistent and have been progressing to harder and harder every week (I add reps or weight to make sure they are getting harder). And my diet has been perfect. Here is my weight:
? maybe ~191
191 (21.4% body fat done with an impedance machine at gym… dont get me started on this… they dont use calipers)
190.1 (after re-feeding day)
February 1 (week 3)
189.6 (no change)
188.2 (no change again weird)
189.7 (what! I had another BFT at 20.4% again impedance machine I dont knwo if I can trust it)
Anyway any advice. Is it ok? why is my body weight going up. Those of you with experience I would appreciate advice! Is my diet wrong… why all of a sudden the weight gain. Is it normal?
I am 5’ 10" by the way.
