Need some advice please.
I was once at 200lb and bf of 30%. Eight weeks ago I was at 150 with bf of 13%. So, I lost 42.5lbs of fat and 7.5lbs of lean body mass. Now I’ve lost a few more pounds, but it was mostly LBM. My waist has been at 34" since I weighed 155. I’m 5’9". 28 years old.
My question is this:
I’ve read here on Tnation that you should be at 10% bf before you try to add muscle, or it will be hard to minimize fat gain-among other reasons. (This has been the case for me).
So, does there come a point where you should go on a mass gain diet anyway? (Like I said do I weigh too little to keep losing fat?) I really want to be down to 10%BF first, but I’m not sure if I can since I don’t weigh very much for my height. My eventual goal once I got down to 10%BF was to put on 20-30 pounds of muscle.
