Couple of diet questions

I am currently trying to drop some bodyfat and i realise that i cant spot reduce so to lose some from my tum, lower back etc will mean loss all over.
 I worked out (roughly) on a cal calculator that i need to be eating approx 2200 cals to lose weight and i have been doing so, trying to keep to at least 1 g per pound Protein but trying to keep carbs around the 100g mark (or thereabouts)
Now i have def lost some fat but i think i have also lost some muscle, which i could live with if my stomach seemed to be going, but its not!!
 
Do you think i may be in the position where i may need to increase cals to actually lose fat? I wonder if the mass drop in cals has slowed my metabolism down badly or something.
 
There are times when i miss a meal and am really hungry but my stomach feels bloated which i find wierd. I do think that carbs have a bad effect on me so i am probably right in limiting them but do you think it is having an effect on muscle loss?

    i think you would get more replies if you put your usually daily in take and stats down
     
    how do you know if your stomach is not going down, have you measured it?
     
    are you currently losing weight

    its simple - your not in a position where you need more cals for metabolism, 2200 is plenty!
     
    Cut out dairy and grains and get your carbs from green veg. simple

    you say carbs are already at 100g, you should be able to get 100g carbs from veg easy.
    then your bloated will be better if you cut out bad carbs and dairy

    I see, like the Paleo diet you have talked about on here? I know Drew Price rates it too!
    I must admit the main bulk of the Carbs i have are from Burgen bread, sweet potato or brown rice.  Do you think these are not ideal?

    sweet pots are fine, bread and rice - no place in any diet in my opinion.

    yes, if your goal is muscle.
    some people who are not interested in muscle who eat paleo maybe eat eaqual amount of carbs from veg as protein.

    Interesting! I will look into it a bit more. Done a brief google on it and it does seem healthy and natural!
    Apart from in bodybuilding, do you feel healthier generally?
     
    Apologies for the interrogation!!

    Veg, sweet pots and presumably oats aside SF, what carbs do you get on best with? I tend to find any moderate portion of pasta or rice doesn't really agree with me, wonder if I'm intolerant to wheat in any vast amounts.

    ak, everyone is intolerant to wheat just some more than others, humans aren't ment to eat it.
    Selecta yes certainly made everyone i know feel better about themselves.
    what danny suggested is a good idea

    The plan Drew sorted you, was it an online consultation? What sort of money did you pay? (if you dont mind me asking!?)

    I went through healthy action, you can see their prices here
     
    http://www.healthyaction.co.uk/services.aspx#online
     
    i went for the standard one for £79....the best money i have ever spent, wish i tried it years ago
     
    i was slightly sceptical - but james took time out answering alot of my questions. he showed me example diet plans done for other people.
     
    when i paid for it. i filled out a very detailed questionnaire and then james ....allocated the consultant. me and drew had an interview via the phone ....he then sent me diet plans and asked for feedback - whether i thought it was practical etc 
     
    i know some of the serious body builders who compete use them. for me i just wanted to eat healthy and feel good. found out i was chronically under eating. now i eat more and weigh less....still trying to get my head round that one.
     
    imsure other heatly action clients would give them the thumbs up
     
    let me know if you need any further info

    Thanks mate! So after they gave you a days diet plan, was it easy enough for you to work out the rest of your week following on from it?
