Rethinking my diet...
8 weeks into a cut. I've gone 97kg to 92kg so a grand total loss of 5kg. It's difficult to tell how accurate the machine I used to count my bodyfat is but it says I've gone from 24% to 16% so I have been making strides. But for the past 3 weeks the scale don't seem to budge. It's almost like my body's telling me, "right..I've had enough of losing weight!".
Except, I'm not happy with the weight I'm at and wouldn't mind losing another couple of kilograms to take me down to 90kg. The longer I drag this diet on and see no changes the loss motivated I get.
The whole reason for me cutting was because I planned on going to Spain in April, unfortunately that's no longer happening so my confident in the past 4 days has taken a knock and I've been seen eating take-a-ways and delving with some Ben and Jerrys, now I'm struggling to get back into a routine....
I reckon if I get a new diet plan up I'll re-motivate myself and that's where you guys come in...
My older plans looks similar to this;
Meal 1; 30g Oats, 50g Blueberries, 3 Egg Whites (1 Yolk - Scrambled).
Meal 2; 30g wholewheat Pasta, 1 can Tuna in spring water, 1 small onion, 1/4 cucumber, 1 apple.
Meal 3; PRE-Workout; 2 oatcakes, 1 banana, 1 scoop whey in water.
Meal 4; POST-workout; 2 scoops whey, 1 scoop dextrose.
Meal 5; POST POST-Workout; 40g Basmati Rice, 6-8oz Chicken, 5 Florets Broccoli
Meal 6; 1 Salmon Fillet, Large Salad, 2 Oatcakes
Meal 7; 100g Cottage Cheese, 1 Scoop Casein.
I was averaging around 2,000 calories a day plus another 100 for condiments. I was taking Sugar Free & Salt Ketchup with my eggs in the morning and then Nandos Peri-Peri for pretty much everything else- only in moderation but it still adds up I suppose.
Now, cardio wise varied- I never really had a routine but a 'good' week would be 35 minutes on the cross-trainer after a weight session. Should I keep this up or should I look to vary it?
I can't for the life of me see where I'm going wrong and why those scales won't drop further...
Thoughts/Ideas? Should I change the way I work my cardio?...alter my diet?
