Currently leaning down from 192lbs and 26% bf, standing at 166 lbs, 18% bf and still losing about 1 to 1.5lb a week.
Body fat loss has slowed a lot.
So - the question
I feel as if the muscle is fading away - yet the strength is still there and even gradually improving (but I am getting smaller).
So - after 6 months of leaning down - when does one start to pack it back on in a clean controlled manner.
I had goals of getting to 12 to 15% bf, but fear I may strip down too much muscle to do it.
How can one tell if the muscle is staying put, and its just the fat going away.
Diet is high protein, 35% fat 25% carb, 40% protein, over Six times a day - about 2000 calories.
Cardio three times a week
Heavy upper then lower then full workouts (another three days)
Too much training, not enough food ?
Keep it going another month (at 6 so far with 22 lbs lost) ?
