I got this exercise phys book for free. not going to say where. It’s telling me that a diet of 1200-1500cal will yield a 90% fat loss 10%lbm loss.
I don’t know where they’re getting their numbers from. It’s a general statement.
My goal is to establish and keep a high relative strength ratio. I don’t really care if I lose some lean body mass along with fat. I don’t want to be weak while I’m trying to get lean.
Dan John writes about people always writing to him about wanting to lose fat and gain muscle. Then he says you can’t do that at the same time.
It’d be nice to keep all my muscle and have 5% body fat. That won’t happen to me though without the V diet or drugs. I just don’t want to be weak. Is it possible to make both of my goals (getting lean and staying strong)a reality at the same time?
My diet isn’t bad compared to the average american-that means it’s probably terrible. I eat at home. Don’t buy a lot of processed crap. I combine carbs and fats though-I try to keep them low GI carbs when eating with fat. I try to eat a lot of protein. When it’s in food form who knows how much I’m really getting.
My portion control is terrible.
