Diet gurus. Macronutrient manipulators. I need some general direction with my diet.
I do a balanced diet now at ~2500-3000 cals (P/C/F = ~40/30/30) and I try to eat 5 X day (500 cal ea.). I eat 3000 on weight lifting days because I feel I hungry and I need that 6th meal. I have been at 200 lbs for the past 3 wks and I have not seen a change in my body composition. Workout is weights 4 X wk, HIIT 2 X week (just started so 5 min warmup, 5 cycles, 5 min cool down). I had success with a keto before and got down to 180 lbs (190 lbs after carb ups). Is it that I am taking in too many calories? Should I change my macronutient ratios to include more fat so I feel fuller.
