I thought I knew what I was doing, but I can't seem to break through the wall I have hit. I cut calories and ended up gaining more weight and muscle. I have no F'ing clue how that happened other than my body has gone into homeostasis. I am going to swallow my pride and ask for help. Here is my typical daily diet.
Meal 1: 8:00am
Meal 2: 12:00pm
Meal 3: 5:00pm
Meal 4: 9:00pm
* The macros listed above are typical for a weekend day. During the week, everything stays the same except meal #2 is replaced with the following:
Starting June 1st, I was 265. I lost down to 250lb in about a month. Now I haven't been able to lose any more weight since the start of July. Nothing in my diet changed other than maybe adding more protein. My training has been pretty good, and even though I am on a fairly intense calorie deficit, I am making gains in the gym.
The problem is that I don't want to make gains in the gym right now. I want to cut fat. It just makes no sense to me to cut calories anymore than what I have. Is my metabolism shutdown? Should I increase the calories to about 1,700 for a few weeks then regroup with a completely different nutritional plan?
I have heard good things about UD 2.0. I was thinking about buying the book on amazon unless somebody has a link to the information and/or the time to help me build a diet plan.
