Hey guys, I recently started cutting and have decreased my carb intake. I just finished a shoulder workout and am home and feel very sluggish and tired. I know this could be a cause of it, I wanted to post what I've been eating and see where I'm going wrong or if I just have to deal with it.
Multi+fish oil+vitamin d daily
Diet now is:
Either 5-6 egg whites, 2 slices turkey bacon+oatmeal
Snack bar, 180 calories 10g protein. some nut type thing.
1 string cheese
Lean mean(chicken or 93/7 beef) with small amount of rice+veggies in tortilla (100 calorie tortilla 9g protein)
PWO: protein bar(180 calories, 20g protein 2 carbs) and post workout I'll have another shake, if I don't lift and do cardio I won't have the shake
Lean meats, small amount of rice+veggies
I've cut out milk from my diet, I was eating cereal before bed which loaded me up on sugar and carbs which I've stopped doing since I'm taking in less calories.
So on lifting days I'm only really adding another protein shake which gives me about 280-300 extra calories.
Non lifting days i'm taking in about 2200 calories with around 190g protein and minimal carbs (the rice I eat is a very small amount) and lifting days I've just been adding a protein shake post workout. I just had pb&j on bread as I feel like I just am craving carbs.
Anything I should change or recommendations? Maybe I should eat 3-4 meals a day instead of constantly.
