I am currently doing a fat loss phase. I have posted a few posts on the web basically. I am 140 lbs, 13.75" biceps, 5’6 with 33" waist. Abs not visible if you don’t suck your gut. I want to lose the fat then build muscle.
Here is the problem: I am following a program where the author uses a high carb and protein diet.
Since i want to lose fat, i will start at 2000 cals during the workout days and increase caloric intake by 25% in nonworkout days to speed up metabolism (according to the program)
Pre workout meals should be taken 1-2 h prior to workout. It consists of 30% of total caloric intake (2000), so it will be 600 cals. 75% of this is from carbs mainly simple sugars like: fruit juices, apple sauce, fruits (about 112 g) and the rest is protein (36 g).
The same goes with post workout which should be taken no later than 30 mins after workout.
The later meals during the day (after workout) you are supposed to have are: 2 more meals with 15% of caloric each. So, meal 1 is 15% of 2000 = 300 cals. 60% of this is from carbs and the rest is from protein.
For the non workout days, you are supposed to have the same outline except you have to replace all the simple sugars with complex carbs.
The last meal is bed time meal (10% of total caloric intake). I usually take Grow…
I want to do this but i am afraid of losing muscle.
It seems impossible for me to lose my gut without losing my muscle and it seems the other way around for gaining muscle.
I always feel so bad when bulking because i add fat as well (i know this has been explained in the massive eating but i want to lose fat now).
I never see my abs even my 4 packs showing without flexing.
I am pretty depressed lately. My energy is going down. My marks are declining. Just because of this thing.
I hope somebody can help me out with this.
