Okay, let's see what the early xmas elf brought in:
I will be using SS as my base program with power clean changed into bb row. About the 4000-5000 calories a day you suggest, that will be valid sometime in the far future and not now, or am I mistaken?
What is the AD? How much fat did you get with that "high" food amount in comparison to muscle?
Fat loss will be my 1st priority till I reach the state in which my body looks acceptable on a mirror.
Say my body uses the amount of BMR+X energy(theenergy used on gym)+Y(the spent on anything else, how high caloric deficiency can I use without the possibility of my body lowering BMR?
Also, if I am to be on keto and ingest carbs before a workout session, do I include these carbs on my daily energy intake calculations?
I will look into "intermittent fasting" soon. I won't take up HIIT as the major source of my cardio since it will make energy logging harder, unless someone can turn my head. However, I am probably going to use 10-20min sessions at will.
I will be using Starting Strength or similar for 3x/week for fat loss, heavy multijoint exercises, and then start building strength and mass on SS.
Is this something I need to consider taking part in?
Is there a major con for me doing low carb/zero carb keto at my very low muscle mass stage? What I have read from keto is that it will eat some of the muscles for energy (e.g. brain needs it @start because it won't get carbs from the diet), however, this amount will lower with time. I would also argument on the pros vs. cons of this--(con)a small bit of sedentary-grade muscle will be destroyed but (pro) lot's of fat will be destroyed also. Is there some reason why this wouldn't qualify for a victory?
