Yeah, trying to do a bit of that. Really just cutting carbs from grains and such.
A typical workday consists of egg whites in the morning, coffee.
Morning snack, an apple and a cheese stick.
Post workout protein drink.
Lunch is usually a chicken breast or something similar.
Afternoon snack is another apple and cheese stick. Or a Fage greek yogurt. Or a handful of nuts.
Dinner… usually I will take some grains via pasta or rice, but limited. Meat. Veggies.
Nighttime snack is the hardest… usually fage greek yogurt or beef jerky or something.
Doing this, I have not noticed any marked decrease in energy, and my workouts remain productive (though I suspect the preworkout has to do with some of that). I also remain to have energy throughout the day. That was a badly constructed sentence.
Not really hungry through the day either.
I will say that my gains may have slowed a bit.
Not sure on this.
The only problem with doing this is that i catch myself having an extra cheat day in the week. Don’t know if it’s a subconscious thing or what.
My weight has been holding steady at around 200lbs. Which is great, but not my goal fitness level.
I could speed this whole thing up, but then it would be unhealthy. So slow and steady it is.
Squat, 285 5x3.
Deads, 340, 5x2. Relatively easy; could get more I suspect.
Bench, cycling between 185-205 for reps.
Press, maxed out at 130, 5x3. Need to work on this. PRESS IS SO HARD.
