Hey guys, yes im back "again", this time im not concerned about posting my workouts i just need some diet help/coaching. I talked to vin d. about this along with my training partners. I competed my last contest at a bloated 258. My lifts are great, but my body comp. and condition is not. the first week i lost 5 pounds of bloat, but since then (3 weeks) ive gained 1.5 back and maintained. Ive been trying the shelby starnes carb cycling and honestly im not losing any weight.
Im not looking for miracles, i just want to lose 1-2 lbs a week consisitantly until my next meet in october, thats 5 months of cutting. Should be PLENTY of time to get down to 225 ish or a little higher. As far as the diet, im still hungry every minute, even on the high days. I dont feel any better or "amazing" eating a ton of carbs and low fat. My protien is around 200-250 normal and i try for 300 on low carb days.
Basically, i dont like carb cycling, and i dont think i need it to maintain the mass ive worked hard for and to maintain my strength. Im starting cardio 2x a week for now and i dont think i should need more than that.
Can anyone help me out?
PS - just want to say this to all the new lifters, BULK CLEAN. honestly, unless you a complete STICK with no muscle OR fat, really eat clean and do it slow. take it from me!
