So I'm during week #3 of a 5 day split. I work out hard, ate clean (zero junk food) space my meals out two and a half hours apart. Food consisted off rice, chicken, eggs...pretty much lots of good carbs, planty of protein and as low fat as possible.
Here's the problem....i only lost 2lbs. My clothes feel better so im thinking i probably lost more fat than that but maybe cause i take creatine daily im holding water.
Anyways, i came to conclusion that i should eat the way i've been eating only when im not worried about losing weight and solely concentrate on gaining quality mass....not try and do both at a same time.
I've introduced principles of keto diet into my nutrition few days ago and at first felt a little sketchy about eating fatty things like tuna with mayo, almonds, omelets with cheese on them etc. Also felt like **** at the gym since my carb intake was under 20g a day. Today is day #4 and I've lost almost 3 lbs. Goal is to carb up on sunday or saturday each week and keep carb cycling til i lose the 46lbs to get me to 200 that i was few yrs ago. I understand that i can't expect killer work outs at the gym or optimal muscle gains but ill have to settle for at least maintaining what i have til i shed this weight. Then go back to low fat high protein mid carb diet. If anyone has any input on this i would appreciate it and thanks for reading. - Anton.
