So.. I havent posted on here in a long while, was doing other shit.

 

Ive also been lifting and cutting for a bit during the beginning half of this year, sadly i didnt get to where i wanted too. I plateaued around half way and didnt notice for a long time.

 

And Ive been fucking tired and sick of not being where I want to be for a long time. 

 

I was around 220 at maximum. Ive gotten down to 198-200

Id like my end goal to be around 180, what Im guessing what would be around 10%bodyfat for me... w/e
 

Im 6' 1" if that matters

 

My diet is consisting of small portion of oatmeal in the morning, I cant tell you how much since my mom makes a huge pot full for everyone to eat.

My lunch and dinner are the same essentially. 

Its half a chicken breast and some occasional veggies that I find/like.(horseradish, pepper, tomato,pickles)

Ive cut out the rice side, since I need to drop the carbs in those meals, need to go very low carb in reference to previous diet.

 

I usually have like 6 chicken breast that I grill at once, and each day I eat about one total. No more.

I try to drink around a gallon a day, I have a 1 gallon Arizona jug, and i refill it in the morning if I drank it all the day before.

 

My workout plan isnt very consistant, since we have guests over for these 2 weeks (since i started like.. the beginning to this week), Im on a different schedule than before.. less free time.

 

Heres what I attempt to get in, if I can get all these in for one day, its a good day.(in no particular order, these all happen through out the day when I have time)

 

2 mile jog followed by some interval sprinting work. I want to get like 30 second sprints, but wasnt able too today.(I hope to eventually be able to run more, its just mental as fuck, really boring no matter the music)

 

3-4 sets of 15-20 push ups.

3-4 sets of 15-20 crunches

5 sets of ~5 rollouts 

3 sets of ~5 pull ups

--Sometimes a 10 mile bike ride with like interval "sprints" (just pedaling at full intensity at highest gear)

 

So far, I havent been able to do something like this, that I want too. been able to get 2-3 at least.

I dont really have access to a gym anymore, that option is gone.

 

So.. I need suggestions for dieting, Ive been told by a fairly knowledgeable friend to cut out sodium,sugars. drop the amount of carbs, and keep the protein levels the same roughly.

 

I want to know what other alternatives i have for the food Im currently eating.

Eggs is an option in the morning, but its not as filling/energizing I guess.

 

 

Suggestions for dieting and what other exercises to incorporate? or attempt too

 

My ultimatum to change my physical life has a goal for the end of this physical year. If I can achieve this sooner, it would be better. I can then start doing other stuff I want too.

Start counting your calories. Whatever you're at now, cut it back a tiny bit.

1k-1.5k is quite low considering I was intaking around 3k-4k calories without gaining weight(over many months with little excerise) and my average caloric intake was around 3k(based on the average of a couple calculators.

 

I will be intaking around 1-1.5k a day, Idk how much lower I can go

 

 

The meal plan that i posted wasnt my normal meal, that was my dieting one. normally I would do around double that

At some point calorie counting becomes a moot point because your body will adapt it's energy needs to suit your diet. As you said, how much lower can you go, without adversely affecting your health? Your calories are too low, putting your metabolism in low gear.

In all honesty your diet is ass backwards. A few meals are carbs only, one chicken breast a day is maybe 30 grams of protein, and pickels/ horseradish i wouldn't consider a serving of vegetables. Diet is 90% of fitness, especially fat loss. It should fuel everything we do including burning fat or building muscle.

 

Start by trying to get in 4-5 complete meals a day (protein/carbs /fat). Try for a 1:1 ratio of protein to carbs, about 30 of each per meal. That would be around 120-150 grams per day, enough carbs to fuel workouts and everyday life, but not so much as to spill over and be converted to fat. Eat small amounts of healthy fats too ( olive oil, coconut oil, avocado, nuts etc.) Eats lots of whatever vegetables you like, preferably raw or grilled, not dripping in butter or cheese sauce lol.

Your right to avoid suger and refined/processed carbs. They spike insulin without any nutritional benefit. Unlike fruit and whole grains, which contain suger but also fibre, vitamins, minerals and electrolytes (nutritional bang for your buck so to speak).

Try this for at least 3-4 weeks. It takes that long for your body to accept and adapt to anything new we do. Any shorter and it's hard to tell if it's actually working or not.

 

Workout to build muscle. Muscle is metabolic which means the more muscle one has, the more calories your burning at any given moment to maintain that muscle. Do your cardio after weightlifting. Weightlifting uses glycogen (stored glucose, a form of suger) for fuel so all that's left when you do cardio is stored fat for energy.

 

Probably most importantly, sleep! Our bodies recover from everything we do to it while we sleep, it's too busy doing other things during the day. Don't use this as an excuse to be lazy but get 6-8 hrs /night and preferably a short nap during the day if you can. Personally a 15-30 min. nap before working does wonders for maintaining energy.

 

Keep us up to date and feel free to keep asking questions.

Alright, cool

 

Im currently just unsure about how many carbs to intake, and how the portion of rice equivalent to that looks like.

Ive got yellow rice available to me, like a decent amount of it. So I guess I'll toss that in as a side, just unsure of how much.

 

 

I cant really do weight lifting any more, so thats why I'm down to calisthenics for a workout..

 

I don't know how I feel about 4-5 meals a day, I know its the right thing to do for dieting. with the small amount of calories Im taking in, to spread that out through the day, I dont know how I feel.

The actual calorie number would have been nice to know in the first post. As Imnothim said, your calories are actually a bit too low, and can adversely affect your weight loss.

Alright

To maintain my weight, I need about 3260 calories.

to slowly loose weight, around 2445 calories. (loose like 1.6lb per week, 6.5 pounds a week)

 

Im thinking drop that number to around 2k.

It would be easier since all the nutritional info on food is based on a 2k calorie diet.

 

I could eat 4 meals, it would be like 300,600,600,600.

something along those lines. Since Im used to having oatmeal in the morning, I cant really eat that much of it.. 

 

 

 

Im thinking I need to get a food scale, or a stamp scale, something that can do stupidly light stuff.. for other reasons too
