Hi There - looking for some guidance - let me know what I can do to lean out -
I'm Female, age 47, 5'4 inches tall, 140 lbs. 26.2% body fat
Eating whole foods, 1800 calories, gluten free, dairy free - I was doing shakeology, but I did not want to sell it so I stopped, also it was bloating me up. I eat, meat, all veggies, sweet potatoes, brown rice, salmon, fish oil caps, low GI fruit, chick peas, etc. Black coffee am. No shakes at the moment....not sure if I have a whey sensitivity.....or maybe it was just low quality.
I lift weights with a trainer 2x a week - total body
I do a group circuit training class with weights 2x a week total body (Burpees, box push ups, etc.) I work out am only 6:30 and eat a piece of fruit and coffee heading out the door pre workout (not sure what to do it's so early to eat much?)
I have maintained 140 for the entire 3 months since starting in late May - I only weight myself once a month as I know the scale is not a good indicator, I do feel tighter but I am not sure if I am eating enough? too much? not the right combo/macros? I am on myfitnesspal at 50%carb 25% protein and 25% fat Increase protein? Add a cardio day?
my goal is to lean out and have visible definition as best as I can for a 47 year old!!
Any advice/diet plan/training plan you can give me will be amazing, you are such an inspiration!
