View Full Version : Maintaining

01-18-2006, 08:30 PM
This is final yr of school, and yes it is very stressful and tight schedules.
I want to take atleast 3-4 weeks off from my workout schedule. SO basically, that means I wont be hitting the gym, or maybe only once or twice a week for cardio during these 3-4 weeks.

I'm still sticking with the 45carb/30prot/25fat ~2100cal diet, but to satisfy the protein rqmnts i'm thinking of taking whey protien once in the morning and one at night before sleeping. If I follow this diet for 3-4 weeks, I know I'll lose some mass/strenght(but i'll gain in back) but is this diet advisable?

Thanks, will appreciate your input.

Eat at maintenance or a bit above...it's not rocket science.

This might be the right time for a break. I usually don't get adequate sleep during finals so that's when I decide to take a complete week off. But keep your diet around maintainance levels. Good luck
