EDIT: new comparison photo last page I believe maybe pg 3?
day 4:3598.0/300.61/152.35/209.5 (off day)
day 9:3326.0/360.20/120.00/175 (off day)
i tried to make that as neat as possible thats why there are .00s and stuff. sorry if it’s messy and hard to read.
i want to start reducing cals i know i haven’t been perfectly consistent, but calorie wise on workout days ive eatten about 3700-4000, 3800 on most days.
when i start cutting im going to make my food and portions as close to the same every day as possible just to make things easier.
anyways to the calorie reduction part.
i think my first drop in calories should be roughly 500 cals
and to do this im taking a cup of rice out a day 241.8 calories in carbs and replacing 5 of the 12 whole eggs i eat a day with 5 servings of egg beaters this takes another 255 calories out of my diet in fat.
hopefully this will help me lose some body fat and after i plateau from this ill do smaller drops from carbs or ill add 15-20 minutes of cardio post workout to make about a 200 calorie difference every now and then adding more cardio.
off days will be about 400 cals less than workout days coming from 6g of protein, 24g of fat and 48g of carbs. (part of my pre workout meal)
does this sound like im approaching this in a sensible way that should produce results?
**side note: about 14 days ago i started fasting (no bcaas or food) 16 hours a day with an 8 hour feeding window eating about 3-4 meals most days sometimes a snack as well. before this i consistently weighed 250-255 more consistiently closer to 255 but two weeks after this i weighed about the same but more consistiently closer to 250, like 251-252ish. this could be anything like water, less food in my stomach, or maybe a pound of fat who knows. my waist measurement is pretty much the same, but my arms,chest and neck measurements are slightly larger than usual by a small fraction of an inch.
oh and my routine is layed out like this:
day 1 chest/tri
day 2 back/bi
day 3 shoulders/traps
day 4 legs/neck/abs
day 5 off
day 6 repeat
i want to start cutting on the 4th or 5th.
