Would really like your input and if you would like, share your experience.
I began the Pulse Feast (mon-fri) and the Time Restricted Eating Plus (sat-sun). The mash up of these two are really working well for me. I like how I feel during the week and then being able to eat for 9hrs on the weekend while I am chasing my twins around at home all day.
However, I seem to run into this a lot with my weightloss. I go a long period where the scale just does not move. I am losing elsewhere, but the scale doesn’t move. And before you say to throw the scale out let me stop you because that’s not my point.
Is it possible to put on muscle as quickly as you burn fat? I know as far as volume the two are very different, but is this possible? I would have thought that doing the Pulse Feast I would see the scale drop from fat loss even though I am keeping lean muscle.
For nutrition I follow the Pulse Feast routine and I eat roughly 1800-2200 calories per day on the weekend. I am 5’10", 264lbs, 33 years old. I am currently with a trainer on Monday/Friday’s where we doing everything from weights to strength training/body weight. Then tues/thurs I follow the T-Nation 40 rep workout plan, and Weds I do a quick 15-20min kettle bell/push-ups routine like T-Nation has provided.
Am I working out too much and not eating enough? Should I take days off to rest more? Or just continue to push through?
