re: PuttaDaForkDown v3.0
Yep.
My ultimate goal is 220. My LBM is about 180 so I think 220 is a good spot to shoot for. I am doing 18-week diet cycles, so once I get to 18 weeks I'll take a 4-6 week maintenance "break" then get back on another 18-week period.

yea when we go out to dinner ill usually have a salad also sometimes if i will give in and have lunch. on those days i have grilled chicken, grilled aspargus and grilled brussel sprouts from Rouses.

but that is only like 1-2 days a week. Rest of the time its steak and eggs. Sometimes i will have brisket if a client wants to go get bbq.

I look a shite ton better and at the end of the 60 days will be at a much lower bf%. I will post naval measurement before and afters and have BF% checked at the end which is the end of the month.

Is something up with Avatar Nutrition? I saw it mentioned through Tigerdroppings but I can't find the app anywhere on the apple store.

Started the year 250, down to 230 so far. 6’3 and I’d like to get to 205 or so, maybe more. Just eating chicken and salads with some fasting I suppose. And cut out sodas and down to water for me. If I have a drink I’ll have a coke zero mixed with my whiskey, but that’s rare lately. Cut out beer. Also going to gym 5 days a week.

re: PuttaDaForkDown v3.0
3 weeks on WW, down 5 lbs. I still can enjoy a glass of wine or two during the week....I just plan my points around for the day I want it. Been cooking more and bringing lunch and snacks to work every day. Overall I don’t feel deprived at all. Have found low point ways to satisfy my sweet tooth (chocolate PB2 powder, etc).

Getting on the Peloton at least 5 days a week.

About to start IVF in a few weeks so won’t be able to exercise then. Basically can’t do anything that makes my heart rate go up or sweat. No twisting or jumping around. No ab work. No weight lifting of any kind. So then I’ll just be able to walk and do very low impact rides on my bike.

We keep Hershey kisses in the house for just that. 22cal per kiss, so when you're having a sweet tooth just eat one or two and log it. Works pretty well.


Good luck with IVF. I know several couples who have had success children are tough but so worth it. From a dietary perspective, I've never been more consistent..because we don't have time. We just meal prep on Sunday and then eat reheated food all week

re: PuttaDaForkDown v3.0
Thanks!

Man today was a total failure points wise

Between going to a diner(the original Mel's Diner from the old tv show Alice) for breakfast with my aunts this morning and my monthly book club with wine and girl scout cookies and brownies....yeah I didn't even bother tracking points today.

It's cool....tomorrow is a new day.

Out of everyone in here who is counting macros, what have y’all set your percentages at for carbs/protein/fat?

re: PuttaDaForkDown v3.0
right now I am just doing steak and eggs.

But will go back to counting macros soon. for me I tend to follow the orignal lean gains layout up to 200g carbs. Carbs tend to make my stomach hurt many times so i personally limit them to around the peri workout window.

but to answer your question, i set protein at 50-60%, from there i split the rest of the cals

workout days- 150g carbs/fat- left over cals
non workout days- 50g carbs/fat- left over cals

I downloaded an unlocked APK of the MFP app so I can set my custom macros.

My macros in fat loss mode are:
200G Protein
78G Fat
175G Carb

So.. about 36% protein, 32% carb, 32% fat.


In maintenance, I reduce protein and increase fat and carbs.

Maintenance:
Protein: 165G
Fat: 98G
Carb: 300G

This large jump in carbs leads me holding onto some extra water, but goes away once I get back into a deficit.

The steak and eggs diet looks difficult

Hulk my splits were setup basically like yours so that's reassuring.

re: PuttaDaForkDown v3.0
Basically your protein should be at least 1.4g for each kg of bw. After that, it's preference. The are some things you can do to be more efficient, such as increasing protein intake, mean timing, etc. But those add things can add a lot if complexity for much smaller payoffs.

re: PuttaDaForkDown v3.0
Yep, I mean there are different ways to skin a cat.

Best for absolute fat loss is 72-96 hour fasting then keto for 3 days in a small deficit then repeat. It's not sustainable though.

Best sustainable approach counting macros is going to be the original lean gains method but again 50% + of protein is hard on a lot of guys. Plus cycling carbs and fat is a pain in the arse for most.

So just get around 1g per lbs of bodyweight for protein, fill the rest of your calories up as you like. It's not the best nor optimal, but it is sustainable for most people. Even eating a little less protein is fine.

And don't stress about one day. Worry about weekly cals and daily protein and lifting heavy shite. Will get you 90% of the way.
