Hi guys, I have a question, and I’d appreciate your input:
I am currently working my ass off
4-5 times per week doing the 5/3/1 program in the morning before work
1-3 times per week sparring-heavy MMA classes at night
while eating a rather carb restricted diet with
~1500 kcal on no training days (if there are any)
~1800 kcal on lifting days
<2100 kcal on lifting AND mma days
my macros are on average
min. 100g protein/day
I have a high BF (I’d say around 30%)
Now the weird thing I don’t understand:
I don’t lose weight (constantly circling around 92 kg) although I don’t feel like doing too much work and depleting my body. My numbers in the gym increase quite fast, although I am not a lifting noob.
With that diet and exercise I was expecting to either feel complete shit and/or lose weight quite fast (where weight loss was my goal). I can’t believe my body is replacing fat with muscle at that quick rate that I won’t lose weight.
Anybody got an idea why I am not losing weight?
Thanks for the input
P.S.: If I should provide some extra info, I’d be happy to.
