Quick profile: 18 years old girl.
Overall I’m slim despite a bit of a belly.
Been doing a 40/40/20 diet for two/three months from the beginning of this year. Lost a slight bit
of fat on hips but nothing significant. Made great improvements at the gym and I was dedicated to my diet until I went through painful stomach issues (it was related to low stomach acid which was solved by taking HCL with pepsin pills - perhaps the sudden, extreme change in my diet led was too much of a shock for my body) for months which, along with exams, led to me letting go of my plan. But now exams are over and I’ve solved my stomach issues I’m determined to get back to reaching my goals.
But 40/40/20 along with impressive weightlifting didn’t give me results as fast as I wanted, should I go back to it or should I try reevaluate my diet and exercise (perhaps give more focus to cardio)?
