I have a quick question on dieting. My goal at the moment is fat loss while maintaining my muscle mass. I have a pretty high amount of muscle mass but also my body fat % is roughly around 20-22%. I was tempted to try this but I wanted to ask everyone’s opinion before hand. This may not be a good idea but that’s what I’m here for.
My plan was to do fullbody workout 3 days per week (probably hour to hour and a half sessions Monday Wednesday and friday) my training session will be in the pm roughly 7-8pm
Day 1 full body but majority focus on arms
Day 2 full body but majority focus on chest and back
Day 3 full body but majority focus on legs and shoulders
My question is: on training days could I limit my food intake to nothing but a ton vegetables and beans like spinach, kale, asparagus,brocoli, black beans, lentils, etc. up until training time, then after training, try to reach my daily macros with 2 meals high in protein and moderate carbs. On recovery days I would go back to my original meal plan of 4-5 meals of lean meats, complex carbs, and healthy fats. Then repeat. I didn’t know if this would help with fat loss by keeping calories low throughout the day, before my training, when my body doesn’t necessarily need them like it does post workout and recovery day. On training days I figured I would get all the energy I need through the carbs and proteins from vegetables and beans and the slow digesting complex carbs from the recovery days. I was thinking i should still have good energy levels throughtout the day and for my training session. Please any info on this is appreciated!!
