3000cals is just too much for me, even with 12 hours of sports / week I
ll gain fat like crazy, I am starving myself now because at first I ate at about 2000-2500cals, and I didnt lose any (maybe a pound or two… in TWO MONTHS).
s why I am desperate, and starving myself, and exercising like a nutcase. Ill try(this week) to raise cals to ~2000-2200.
PS: I am getting my Omega3`s, and I eat 5-6 meals/day.
m about 1.77cm tall, and Im not very overweight, if I drop about 5 kgs of fat, I think I`ll be really close to a 6-pack, at about 12-13% BF[/quote]
You need to eat more!
I know it’s counter intuative to what you may think, but it is part of the answer.
You’re opening statement ASSUMES you will gain fat. Believe me, it won’t be because of the increase in cals. If your metabolism is that out of whack, you need medical assistance for that. But 2500 cals to a 175-180lb active/quite active male is not–NOT–enough.
All your ‘work’ is going against you with such a restricted caloric intake. Just drink ‘1’ smoothie type meal extra to start. Make sure you maximize pre/post workout windows. Eat proper before bed. Whole milk instead of low fat. Nuts instead of processed snacks. Simple changes that can lend big results.
Your obsession with abs and fat is clouding your judgement. You need to pack on some quality mass and the abs will take care of themselves. Right now with your restrictive intake and obsessive workload, you are dumping muscle left and right. Your defeating your own purpose and goal.
Start a food log immediately. How can you eat 6 ‘meals’ a day and consume only 2000 cals. Those aren’t meals for a growing young adult male.
I htink you need to reprogram your ideas about what is healthy and what process yuo need to take to get you there. Your misguided ideas ain’t working for you now, how about you change them up.
