firstly ill introduce myself, been lifting for about three and a half years, currently weighing 220 at 6’2 about 15%bf.
before i got into the gym i was quite overweight, lost about 26 pounds and then began weight training.
I’ve got more serious about bodybuilding for physique purposes as time wore on.
this year decided id get really lean as I’ve never really had proper set of abs to show.
i started the first week of january and lost about 14 pounds since then.
I’ve decided due to being highly mesomorphic… can gain muscle but always some fat and always hard to cut that my calories would start a lot lower then usual. I’m at 250g protein and 100g fat per day divided into five meals. i do cardio for half hour 4 times a week with hr under 130 always. I’m in the gym 5 days a week with a traditional body part split
a few questions i have are, firstly are these calories too low? i know it seems quite low and I’m doubting myself quite a bit for this.
what I’m considering is when i drop another 6 or so pounds add 50g carbs post workout in the form of oats, then another 4 pounds and 50g carbs pre bed- i find it helps me sleep and don’t buy into the carbs at night make you fat myth
thanks for all the info provided by others already. especially yourself stu as I’ve gone though your threads at least 4 or 5 times for all the tips i can get
