Why are you eating so little?? You're 17 and 200 lbs...you can cut on more weight. You should also specify how much beef you ate.....that's pretty generic. You also need more protein and fat.

I'd up the calories.

ok.... so what should i up the cals to? how much fat should i eat and how much protein should i eat a day?

You don't know your body fat, so shoot for 200 g of protein (1 g / lb, for easy math) and 100 g of good fat (0.5 g / lb). Start by adding a small number of calories (like 200) and let your body adjust to it. You should continue losing weight while eating more.

This place is great. The hard part is putting all the advice in practice for years on end :(

But when you continue making progress and all your friends are stuck or have given up, then they'll listen to you.

I also agree, too few calories.
to give you a hint, I'm 29, 182lbs, not exactly lean at the moment, and I can cut fat on 2200cals a day. mostly I watch my carb intake, and really restrict carbs on the days I don't lift weights. So I may not be quite as high a bodyfat % as you, I'm also older with a slower metabolism (and have had a spare tire since 3rd grade).

carbs are our primary source of energy. carb cycling can be VERY effective in keeping you sane while forcing the body to find its energy in the form of stored fat. lift heavy, eat plenty of protein and you'll hold on to the muscle mass you currently have.

Ide up it to 1800 cals a day. Also why do your protein shakes have 38g of carbs per serving?

Seems your macros are pretty good. I would shoot for about 180g of protein a day.

the banana has a lot of carbs...if it wasnt for the banana it would be like 10-15 grams of carbs

am i the only one who thinks his cals are still too low?

12-30-2006, 12:10 PM
I think it's still low, but it depends how long you've been eating that low for. When did you get into the low cal territory?

12-30-2006, 01:52 PM
ya i agree with the whole cal thing being low. i would up it to at least 1800. i don't know how this guys doing it on less than like 1500. it almost looks like a modified PSMF when the cals get that low.

12-30-2006, 02:55 PM
what the heck is PSMF?? never heard of that

12-30-2006, 03:15 PM
PSMF = Protein Sparing Modified Fast

I don't have a link at the moment.
