I recently took a break from counting calories and macros. I kinda eat how my body feels (With some structure to it) Ex. I Swim and do Strongman/Oly Lifting, Most days for B-fast I eat 2-3 Eggs, A full Avocado and Vegetables or Some Breakfast Meats. Lunch is usually low carb and the carbs found are from fruits, I also eat on the higher end of the scale when it comes to fat. Pre-workout is High Carb and Protein, and Dinner usually consists of Meat/Carb/Vegatable. Somedays I won’t even eat the carb depending on how I feel, I usually will replace the carb with a fat. From everything I see this is super out of the Norm, my calories are pretty damn low, protein under BW.
This approach works for me Strength and Fat-loss wise, Is it Beginner Gains? Is there any Issue trying to do this long-term. I also do a 5/2 for lifters kinda deal on off days.
