Hello everyone. I’ve been reading over these forums for decades and viewing all 100,000 strategies on weight loss (…lol). I’ve read most of JB’s work, as well as way more articles on here than i should ever spend my time on. Still, i do want a second opinion before i make my next decision here…
I’m 24, 6’0, 197 lbs and approximately 12% bodyfat, looking to cut down to 7-8%.
My training is 3x a week of Total Body Training, from this site i believe, and 3x HIIT jog/sprints.
I am at a plateu in cutting right now, not having moved for about 3 weeks, consuming 2500 kcals a day.
M1: 1 cup nat. oats, 4 egg whites
M2: chicken breast, veggies
M3: Lean (90/10 or better) Red meat, Veggies
PWO Shake- 80g Carb, 40g whey protein
PWO meal: Veg, chicken, 1cup brown rice
M6: 1 cup fat free cottage cheese, flax
Pro-230g, Carb 210g, Fat 50g (not EXACT, but very close)
On non lifting days i have no shake and no carbs other than veggies and breakfast. The macros break down to…
Pro - 290g. Carb - 70g Fat - 80g
Other information…mmm…I’ve been seriously training for about 2 years, i’m otherwise healthy i believe.
Soooo…To break this plateu, as far as internet guesses can really do anyway,
would i be better advised to increase my cals 200/day incase my body is conserving energy and i’m overworking?
OR would i be better off decreasing them 200/day and assuming my body just burns slower than the calculators averages?
Thanks so much!
