I’ve been lifting consistently for the past 1 year and have recently started on a diet to finally lose all the fat I’ve been hauling around
I began on the 1st of September.
From that time until now, this is my daily training routine :
1 - 1.5 hours weights (5-day split) 8AM
1.5 - 2 hours Rugby / Flag Football practice daily 5PM
I took in around 2400 kCal daily during this period
Around 250g protein daily from beef, egg whites, chicken and salmon
I’d aim for 50g - 60g healthy fats and about 240g carbs daily
For breakfast/pre-workout I’d make a shake using Milk, Oatmeal and some fruits.
Post-workout I’ll get a sweet drink (iced lemon tea) to go with my 5g Creatine Mono and take one of my 3 packed meals (protein + brown rice + veggies)
I’ll eat the rest of my food throughout the day between classes (I’m a college student), alternating the big meals with 3 hard-boiled eggs every 1.5 - 2 hours.
If I made 2400kCal, I’ll skip dinner. If not, I’ll cook sumthin up (according to my macros)
Question : From the progress above, is it working? Am I losing weight at a proper rate, or is it too slow? If it is, should I lower my caloric intake or should I increase it to improve metabolism? I’m new at this and have no idea what bodily cues to pay attention to.
Help appreciated guys
