I have been on low carb for 14 weeks and lost 37.4lb However although I have seen major changes in my physique and have become quite lean and defined but my fatloss has slowed and I still have a potbelly which is (very) slowly diminishing but I'm sure there is something I could do better to excelerate my fatloss. I'm hoping you guys can share your knowledge and wisdom to steer me in the right direction.
Here we go...
Chest/triceps +30min cardio or HIIT
Back/arms +30min cardio or HIIT
Back/Biceps+30min cardio or HIIT
Shoulder+30min cardio or HIIT
Current weight 172 lb
My meal plan has been very much the same over the past 14 weeks so here it is.
BREAKFAST 07:30- 10 eggwhites,(35g protein) 2 Tbs low fat/sugar salsa but recently added 1/2 cup oatmeal with 1 oz blueberries also.
SNACK 10:30- Good handfull of spinach/lettuce,hot chilli peppers,100g smoked chicken breast 1 can tuna (16g protein)
LUNCH-13:30 Good handfull spinach/lettuce,handfull of cucumber,180g chicken breast,1/4 avocado,12 kalamata olives,16 almonds,hot chilli peppers,4Tbs cottage cheese,25g parmesen cheese,3/4Tbs olive oil,chilli powder.
SNACK-16:30 (Same as 10:30 snack above)
DINNER-19:00 EITHER- 200g chicken stirfry with 270g mixed veg 1Tbs fish sauce splash of rice wine vinegar,1/2 Tbs blackbean sauce.
250g Steak/ 200g chicken breast with 1.5 cups brocoli,8 asparagus with sauce made up of-
1 Tbs olive oil
1/2 Tbs flaxseed oil
1 Tbs Dijon mustard
1 Tbs lime juice
LATE SNACK (only sometimes) 1/2 cup cottage cheese with 1 Tbs peanut butter.
I've had no cheat meals at all in the whole 14 weeks.. (not even one) but have had the very occasional low carb beer.
I realise my fat intake maybe slightly high but I feel this is necessary on such a low carb diet.
8 fish oil caps
1.5g Vit C
Mega Vit B (allsorts of vit b)
And just today started Glutamine.
Occasionally (hardly ever) I will have a pwo shake as a convenient option but for weight loss prefer whole foods as I do not want the extra calories.
When I do have a shake it consisted of-
Whey ( Isolate/unflavoured)
I have been adding 1/2 med banana and 3/4 oz blueberries but today started using-
1 oz blueberries
1/3 cup powdered oatmeal.
Any thoughts on what I could do to improve and get rid of this darn belly for good.
Thx in advance as your help will be very much appreciated.
