I won’t say if/maybe
I will say this is NOwhere near the caloric intake you need. NOWHERE!
You are starving yourself and your body is eating your muscle and storing fat. Right now–right as you read this.
With that type of workout and your bodyweight you need to be at a minimum of 3200-3500 cals./day for maint. You cant shave off 40-50% od your caloric need and expect to lose any weight that isn’t mostly muscle. Your body has to eat something, so it’s eatin’ you.
Forget about your carbs. That’s no concern. You do need to add about 500-1000cals a day and I would advise you to eat a lot-A LOT-more fat and fill the rest with protein and early day or PWO carbs.
And I never understood people who eat less on the days they don’t work out. When do you think your body is repairing itself? When is it reloading glycogen levels to power you through your next workout? The only difference should/might be a PWO. Save yourself the 3-500cals. That’s it.
Time to shake up all the misinformation you have re: weight loss and how the body works. Eat more. Eat more fats. Eat more often. Lose the weight. Keep the muscle.
Don’t mean to be a troll,but was Chris Shugurt and the hundreds,maybe thousands of people including me who did the Velocity diet full of shit.I mean,we all ate less than 2000 calories a day,ate more on our work-out days than non-workout ones,and lost weight while maintaining mucsle mass,even gaining muscle in some cases.I’m just asking you this because you’re so absolute in your statement that low cal. diets don’t work.[/quote]
I sort of addressed it in previous point, but let me say that my answer/reply was given with the knowlege I had given from the poster.
He had ALREADY been on this restricted cal. diet for a month. He was mma training like 6-8 hours a week. He was weightlifting 3x a week. He was interval training 2x a week He was joggin 2x a week.
Not for over a month on something like a velocity diet! The velocity diet may have its place–I just can’t think of one. I guess if you have all your shit together and just want to drop some weight fast for some reason ok. But it is not a lifestyle and not effective long-term. And can’t be effective long term with that type od activity level.
