Hello everyone, this will be my first time posting here.
I’m following Stronglifts 5x5, and here are the numbers for my lifts:
Squat - 90kg
Bench press - 62.5kg
Overhead Press - 42.5kg
Deadlift - 125kg
I lift 3-4x a week
I have just started lifting seriously for about half a year, prior to that i have been very inconsistent for about a year.
I understand that i need to just get stronger now, but i feel like i really do have too much fat on me. So i’ve just decided to take up the ‘eat clean and lift heavy’ mentality.
I’m not going to lie, i only have 2 meals a day because i usually wake up very late.
I get my protein from meat (beef, chicken or sometimes fish) and my carbs only from vegetables.
It looks like this most of the time:
Meal 1 (About afternoon)
Option 1: Eggs with vegies
Option 2: Chicken with vegies
Preworkout: 1 serving protein shake
Postworkout: 1 serving protein shake
If it matters, mines from ON.
Meal 2 (Dinner)
Steak or salmon with alot of broccoli and cauliflower
I only drink water or tea (no sugar) and i take 8 capsules of fish oil and a multi a day.
I’ve only been eating like this for about 2weeks, as i’ve just gotten back from vacation.
My question is, will continuining this help me reach my goals (lower bodyfat, stronger)?
Is there anything i should add/remove? Advice is greatly needed
I would say i have a long way to go but i am willing to learn
Will post pics soon
