Tell Me I'm Being Impatient.

I’ve been trying to eat clean since only way for me to lose fat is to control diet since I am an ecto.
Any way, for like a month or so, I’ve been watching what I eat, actually counted fat, carbs, protein and such.
I see that usually, I get fat<100g(sometimes under 50), and around 300g of carb and 300g or less of protein, also been doing 20min of cycling at moderate speed of 100calories/10min burning pace 3~4times a week.
The problem is that I see my stomach getting bigger and bigger. I’m at 180lb at 6ft1inch so I should not try to lose weight. Please diagnose me.

Most Ecto’s I know seem to be able to lose weight whilst on a KFC only diet mixed with a bit of mild intensity exercise.

You are being impatient!

You are being impatient, but you’re also not doing a long duration of cardio and you didn’t mention if you were lifting weights.

I’m naturally a skinny guy but I found that 30-45 minutes 2-3 times a week at a moderate-hard pace is optimal for me to do cardio, less than that and I don’t notice anything.

It’s hard to tell if you’re eating clean, 50-100 grams of fat is a pretty big range, try and nail that down to a more specific amount. And 300 grams is a shitload of protein, I would say it’s excessive (just from my opinion, feel free to disagree).

Try eating 5 meals with 40-50 grams of protein per meal, the rest of your calories from clean sources.

How many meals a day are you eating and what’s the calorie breakdown of those meals?

Are you lifting? What’s your lifting schedule?

Do you mean ecto or endo?

That is a lot of carbohydrates. Why are you afraid of dietary fats? I would get some calories from some good fats instead, and lower your carb intake to only PWO and breakfast.

Try canned salmon with some real mayo for example.

and what are you being impatient about?? Not to clear on that. you say your getting a belly but your eating to gain??

6’1 180 I’d suggest you build muscle with those stats you just gave

My diagnosis is that you are suffering from Trolliosis Syndrome.
