Simply not enough info provided to make a determination. How many carbs per day are you currently consuming? Yes, if you are addicted to carbs and your body needs them to function then training fasted probably won’t work for you.
What are you taking for Biotest supps, if any? A lot of their products could work well in your case.
I personally eat later than 6:30 but that is because I don’t train until about 5:30, so my last mean is at about 7:30 at night.
But for the most part, fasted cardio helps you burn fat if you are trying to lean out. Consuming carbs before you workout probably isn’t the best idea unless your body physically can’t handle a workout without them. [/quote]
Good question. Here are the details:
Pre-workout: 30g of whey protein, 25g of maltodextrin for carbs, along with BCAAs
Post workout: 30g of whey, 30g of casein, 100g of maltodextrin
3 additional meals that average 60g of protein, 50g of complex carbs, 35g of fat
Stop eating at 6:30
Total approximate calories = 3,100,
240g protein, 275g carbs, 105g fat
Again, key questions are whether I should have the 25g of carbs pre-lifting and cardio (30 min) and whether I should continue not having the pre-bedtime protein. Goal is to lean out. [/quote]
Cut your calories to 2,600. This ALONE will guarantee weight loss.
Stop eating at 6.30 is retarded.
Pre-bedtime? NOT IMPORTANT. What is important is meeting you macro targets.
Eating half an hour before your workout, you body will not digest this to be used during the workout. IMO a good 5 hours is needed. [/quote]
One thing I forgot to mention is that I will be cutting 200 calories every 2 weeks. (ex.3100, 2900, 2800, etc)[/quote]
this many calories may not be necessary.
when my weightloss stalls my guy will usually only drop me about 50-70 cals which usually yields 1-3lbs of loss in a week depending if i’m keeping up with my cardio or not. i know it blows my mind i thought that i would have to drop 100-200 a week, but such a drastic change hasn’t been necessary.
I’ve been dieting with him since feb i started at 3300ish calories. now 5 months later im still eating like 2980 cals a day for my most recent drop this week.[/quote]
A pound of fat is around 3500 calories requiring a caloric deficit of 500 a day through diet and/or cardio to lose at a rate of 1lb/week. 3lbs is excessive imo and may be water weight. If I’m losing more than a pound per week I’d probably up my carbs somewhere.[/quote]
dunno what to tell you man, i mean the 3lb loss only happened once and it was about 4 days into a 7 day deload. I’m assuming i was very overreached and needed the time off.
but yeah like i said i started with this guy named RJ Perkins in feburary at roughly 3300-3400 calories on most days and now im eating 2970ish on most days and ive gone from 246-232 with very minor adjustments over the past 5ish months. What is that like about 14lbs with a total of a 500 calorie distributed in small increments over 5 months.
i don’t really remember how big my waist was back then, somewhere around 40-43 (39.5ish sucking in) now im just under 38 not sucking in (just under 36 sucking in)
