    Input to get down to 14% BF


    I am 43 yo at 16.5% - 182. On a 6 week cycle var. I have my calorie intake at 1600. Protein at 175. Trying to reduce BF to 14%. Eating egg whites in the morning and turkey breast. Protein drink 51 grams alone in that. More turkey breast. Almonds. Lots of water. Chix breast broccoli. Sweet potato. Main foods I eat. I allow myself a glass of wine a week.

    Are you only taking in carbs once a day? Also what does your training look like as well as cardio?

    Carb wise I'll have sweet potato at dinner. Or handful of almonds. High fiber muffin. I do grab a piece of chocolate here or there LOL.

    Gym 3 days a week. Cardio none. I have a prosthetic and it slips of with sweat but I found a non sweat roll on I'm trying. I would prefer to do cardio no more then 2X week. Diet I can manage well.

    40 grams carb only. Really? Ok. What is keto? How high would you run protein and is my calorie intake 1600 ok? Wouldn't this create an issue getting backed up going to the toilet?

    When I hit 14% how would I maintain. You wouldn't keep that diet I'm guessing.

    More exercise is a better way. Dropping calories too low will slow metabolism and waste muscle

    ur cals are extremely low. u will lose alot of weight like that. this includes muscle.
    u should do 2000cals, about 240g protien, less then 50g carbs( including dietary) , about 120g fat.

    keto diet is simular to aktins. has nothing to do with ketone supps.

    last year and this yr i have done it for quick cut. usually drop 15lb real quick. and knock my bf% down a few notchs.

    its very mantainable. i have a harder time stablizing my weight and usualy continue droping even after keto.

    if u dont want to cut carbs. look into intermited fasting. also very good.

    u will drop a lot of weight eating at such low cals (1600). but u may not see ur bf dropping as fast.

    but thats just what works with me,

    That's the thing I'm not really dropping. Your saying lowering carbs and upping calories would work. Key is the carbs. Here is yesterday's food breakdown.

    this is when i was doing keto. ur carbs should be all or mostly dietary fiber. or ull have probs doing #2.
    2-4week tight keto makes a huge diff. u have to take a day every two weeks to carb load.

    And that was 2000 calories? I can hit the protein goal. So by limiting the carbs more so I should see changes because right now... not much is happening. Small changes. I would probably add fiber for roughage.

    Ok I'll buy the flax seeds. I'll shoot for 40grams of carbs. Raise my calories to 1800 for more fat?
