So i am 17, 5’9 (176 cm) and 153 pounds (69 kgs).
I workout (lift weights) 3-4 times a week but during the day I am mostly sedentary.
I just finished loosing A LOT of weight (66 pounds - 30 kgs) on a very low calorie diet and I completely screwed my metabolism up.
I think that my maintenance calories dropped to 2000-2100 (if not lower) and i have been eating this way for over a year.
Anyway, lately I have been trying to increase my total calories in order to get my metabolism going again.
Here is how i eat:
11:00 – 400 cal Protein +Carbs
13:30 – 250 cal (Post workout) 25g protein 40 g simple carbs
15:00 – 400 cal Protein +Carbs
17:00 – 400 cal Protein +Carbs
19:00 – 400 cal Protein +Fat
21:00 – 300 cal Protein +Fat
before bed 250 cal Protein +Fat
It’s a total of 2400 and probably around 300-400 kcals more than my current maintenance but still 200 below my suggested maintenance (2600).
I was told that if i eat this way, I will restart my metabolism and it will allow me to quit the plateau i am in. Do you guys think that If I do eat like this for a while, I will put on too much fat?
This would suck big time because my goal is to currently get rid of a tiny layer of fat that is hiding my abs.
