Background info…~2 years ago i was at 300ish pounds, lost it down to 155 the wrong way, lost all the muscle with the fat. Stayed around 180 for a few months, and then got informed. I’ve been eating right and training for about a year now, and gone from 38% BF at 180 to 14% BF at 188, which is where i am right now. I’m 23, 6’0.
After a month off last X-mas (and gaining ~5 lbs), i resolved to cut and see if i can get to single digit BF. The problem is that i’ve hit a plateau this early on, and not had a change for ~2.5 weeks now.
I use a split routine for lifting 3 days a week and fasted cardio the other 4 days. I’m also using HOT-ROX extreme. My diet looks like…
Breakfast: 1/2 cup oats, cup eggbeaters
M1: chicken + veggies
PWO shake of dextrose/whey 2:1 ratio
M3: Chicken + veggies + Brown rice
M4: natural PB, some lean meat
Bed: Fat free cottage cheese, flax oil
230g protein, 130g carb, 60g fat, ~2k calories
Cardio days are the same w/o the PWO shake, and with another lean protein/veggies meal to even it out.
The totals on Cardio days come to 290g pro, 70g carb, 60g fat.
Anyway…anyone who has been in a similar situation and also fears that his metabolism is just f’ked ^_^, feel free to please advise me
