I know it’s prime time and I have an itching question. With diet changes alone and without cardio, I seem to be unable to get below 11-12 percent body fat. I am a 19 year old male, 5’10 and 185lbs in the morning. BF is between 11 and 12 percent.
Currently I am trying a new "diet.
I am interested on your thoughts.
Basically, Im consuming 1 gram protein/lb bw, .5 gram fat/lb bw, and carbs soley from vegetables and nuts. I eat nontropical fruits after weight workouts (about 60 grams carbs). I consume 3 meals a day generally with all the macros spread out across them. Between meals, I consume 6 grams BCCA, 2.7 grams glutamine, and about 5.6 grams other aminos. I double this dose pre and post workout.
The theory is that the aminos will keep the metabolism from going into starvation mode and instead burn fat for energy while preserving muscle. The reason I ask your thoughts is bc I can never seem to get as low bf as I want (8-9%). I don’t drink or smoke, I get 10-11 hours of sleep a night (although I go to bed around 2AM). Just your general thoughts would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
