no im not gaining any fat, infact ive been losing it...not taht i was ever "fat" to start with, i just mean my BF% is going down.
i dont think my lifting is affecting my performance in a negative way either, if anything it helps me. i just started getting into MMA about a month 1/2 ago, so id like to do it competitivley (my goal is professionally)
right now im not calorie counting or anything, i just kinda get a feel for it in my head/how hungry i am so its more what i think/feel is right. i just try to make sure im getting 30-40grams protein per meal (i weigh 170lbs now)
the only thing is i need to start determining how many grams of fat ill be needing. im on a low carb+HF+HP diet and i think ill be trying the AD soon, i just wanna spend a little more time on this Atkins like diet so ill have enough experience to compare the two.
