I just had a few questions. I started cutting 4 weeks ago and just after 2 weeks i’ve noticed that I’ve hit a wall. My diet is low-carb with high protein and fat. I find that I respond best to keeping my carbs low. Anyways, the first 2 weeks I had amazing changes. Lost a few inches off my waist and even gained a little in my chest. At the end of the 3rd week I had zero changes and today is end of week 4 and still zero changes.
I know that the first 2 weeks were probably just a lot of water and glycogen loss, but I figured that I would at least drop a pound or 2 in the weeks after but nothing. In the mirror I look the same. I would estimate that I’m around 13%bf, but I wanna get down to 7 or 8 or so.
I even tried in the last 2 weeks to have one day where I load my carbs (kind of a refeed) to see if it will shock my body when I drop them again the next day. I’m finding that my body adapts super fast to any diet or even things that I change in my workouts.
I was just wondering what nutritional tweaks can a person do that can keep the body guessing so that my gains continue. If anyone is curious, this is probably a normal cutting day for me diet wise.
1/2 Protein Shake before workout
Other 1/2 Protein Shake PWO
The shake contains a total of 52g of protein so adds up to 26g before and 26g after. I’m starting to add some gatorade to it this week to see if that enhances the effect of it.
Within 30 min of that PWO shake I have usually
3 eggs with Cheese on a Low Carb Tortilla
6oz of a Solid meat protein (either chicken, steak or fish) with a side of a green veggie
3 Hrs Later:
6oz of a solid meat protein (either chicken, steak or fish) with a side of a green veggie
Usually after those 3 solid meals I might snack on a string cheese or some nuts in between, but I try to be finished with my meals by 8pm.
Thanks if you read through all that and tried to make some sense of it.
