Depends what you’re willing to do…
On 1000kcal a day, (depending on how long you’ve been doing that for) you might have wrecked your metabolism. If you have been doing it for an extended period, I’d look into reverse dieting, so as to increase your daily calorie intake to be able to properly fuel your workouts.
As for supplements, there are lots of different things you can take;
- If you’re not already taking a multivitamin and Omega-3 softgels, I’d add these - the multivitamin will cover all your nutrient needs and the omega-3 helps to reduce cortisol levels (high cortisol levels hinder fat loss).
- I’d suggest a thermogenic (or fat burner as some people call them) - this would help to slightly raise your body temperature in order to burn more calories.
- You could also add CLA, (although this is heavily debated as to whether it actually does anything noticeable at the the available doses, but if you’re trying everything then no harm in giving it a go) - this (supposedly) helps to increase basal metabolic rate.
- If you’re towards the end of the weight loss phase and want to reduce the current levels of water retention then you could add vitamin C tablets - vitamin C is a natural diuretic.
If you’re willing to delve into more pharmaceutical territory (not steroids, but rather prescription medications) then there are a few things which are often used to reduce body fat;
(Make sure to do some research on these if you decide to use them in order to stay safe and avoid side effects and/or long term issues!)
- Clen - clenbuterol is a stimulant which increases body temperature and energy levels causing more NEAT, (fancy way of saying you burn more calories throughout the day) although this can have adverse effects on the heart.
- T3 - this is a synthetic thyroid hormone, the more thyroid hormone you have, the higher your metabolism will be.
- EC/ECA stack - this is ephedrine + caffeine / ephedrine + caffeine + aspirin, (although from what I’ve heard the aspirin isn’t necessary) this is another stimulant and will work similarly to clenbuterol, but is on the safer side in terms of adverse effects.
As for ‘ketocuts’, the ingredients don’t seem to have anything that amazing listed so I would personally leave it out but no harm in trying and seeing what you think.
Other than supplements, have you tried increasing training frequency to more than 4 days per week? Or increasing the amount of cardio you’re doing? This could be the simple answer to breaking through your plateau.
