Hey guys/girls. I’ve been noticing significant gains of fat in my stomach area as of late and I was hoping for some suggestions. First a little background:
I have been working out off and on for around 1.5 years, find the site this January and have been serious since around late April. I have made some noticable gains (people have commented) across the board and have jumped in weight from 149 to 170. I am 19 years old and 5foot9. I have been following the Waterbury Method and recently started a 4 day upper/lower body split routine.
My nutrition is okay, or so I thought. I comsume around 3500 cals a day, with average being 260 grams of protein, 360 carbs and 80 grams of fat. A rough example of my daily intake is:
Meal 1 = 1 cup dry oatmeal, 35 gram protein shake, 1.5 cups of milk
Meal 2 = Can of tuna, 3 fish oil pills, 2 cups mixed vegetables
Meal 3 = Post workout shake (40 grams pro, 55 grams carbs)
Meal 4 = Chilli w/ 0.5 cup dry parboiled rice
Meal 5 = Whatever dinner is (steak, porkchops, chicken, etc) and fish oil.
Meal 6 = Before bed meal with 2 cups of milk, 2 oz of cheese, 25 gram shake, tablespoon of olive oil and fish oil.
I’ve never been skinny, always had a bit of a gut, and I’m not afraid to keep it, but the gains have really been bothering me. I don’t want to hinder my progress (tonnes of thanks to you guys) but I want to keep my fat-ass to a min. Any suggestions, wether it be diet, supps, cardio, etc.
Thanks in advance!
