So I need some advice or direction as to where to look for some info.
Some info about me,
31 years old
Current weight is 256-260 lbs at about 30% body fat. Calculated with one of those hand held things at my yearly biometric screening.
Daily calories are between 2350 and 2500 per day with average macros of:
Protein: 180 grams
Carbs: 65 grams
Fats: 170 grams
These are all averages calculated with “MyFitnessPal” app.
Protein levels are doctors orders. I have had blood sugar issues for a long time and finally have them under control.
Currently doing 5/3/1 with accessory work 4 days a week as well as work a physical job.
Currently on TRT and will get my current testosterone numbers next week.
I’ve always been over weight even as a child growing up I was fat and this has continued into adulthood. At one point I was 310 lbs. I have tried low fat diets, really high protein, straight even macros, high carb and just about anything else I can find. I’ve always wanted to lean out and frankly be able to look down and see my dick while standing. At this point though I don’t care if I lean out or if I stay “fat” and just get strong AF. The issue is that I can’t seem to do either one. My TRT Doctor has suggested that I go Keto due to my high-ish a1c and some other numbers. I guess I’m just wondering if anybody has any advice or if there’s anyone who has had good luck with Keto. Or if anyone else has found themselves in a similar situation. I’m frankly just tired of beating my head against a wall like I’ve done for the past year and a half. Thanks in advanced.
