    Didn't really count them last year. Sporadically I would use myfitnesspal and I still used intermittent fasting, but wasn't counting nearly as carefully as I am now. So, "I don't know".

    Just was curious. Your situation tends to happen when people go from say 400-500 carbs per day on a bulk and then start cutting and drop the carb count to about 100-200 as well as dropping calories too fast to quick. This makes it difficult to lose that extra weight / body fat once you get to a certain point.

    I would say keep doing what you are doing for a few more weeks. If nothing happens, up your kcals bit by bit for a while then try to come back down slowly.

    Thank you sir! That's the path I'm going to take

    Again in these carb totals are with all fiber subtracted, which can be 75-100g per day on workout days, and about 10-20g on rest days.

    Thanks for any help brother
    Does anyone else see that he's subtracting 75-100g carbs a day from fiber?

    That's an excessive amount if fiber and can cause a host of different issues. I'd look into that.

    If plateaued at your current cals slowly add calories as your body is way to efficient at drawing all the energy from what your eating

    At 45-60 g fiber I **** a small child

    I do 5-10% of total carb as fiber generally

    I'm not subtracting the fiber FROM those totals, I am not adding it TO those totals. So if I have 80g fiber my carbs on workout day would be 265+80= 345. .

    Can you link me to some credible sources on how too much fiber is bad? Most of it in my diet comes from lower carb stuff like low carb tortillas, bread, etc, which the food industry seems to compensate for with more fiber, and also veggies and kashi cereal. I do weigh all my veggies and eat quite a lot of them for satiety.

    I'm kinda stuck in this loop where I need more food to feel full, and normal bread or tortillas would take up way too much of my daily calorie allotment (two slices of normal bread in a sandwich would be 10% of my daily cals on rest day!), so that's why I lean towards the fiber containing foods...

    edit: what should I expect when raising calories? Will body weight stay the same as my body becomes "less efficient"? Or will I gain weight then have to cut it off again later? I'm genuinely interested in what you have to say but some more detail and links to studies/articles would be appreciated .

  8. You should be shooting for about 20-30 grams of fiber per day.

    I'm not trying to be confrontational, but can you please link me to a study or credible article thst explains the threshold at which fiber becomes bad? On what do you base your number?

  12. Thank you sir! I will read them, always willing to learn and correct bad habits.by the way, I've only hit 100g fiber on one day in my whole cut. Usually it is around 75g, and then only on workout days...

  13. Just looked at all those... All of them would seem to indicate that fiber intake is a good thing, and I didn't see upper limit being discussed. In fact after browsing I'm even more confident with my 75g per day on workout days.

  14. Check this article, scroll down to the comments section for a journal article that says hunter gatherer humans consumed 100-150g fiber

  15. Fiber binds to minerals and a too much of it can cause insufficient absorption and deficiency. The main ones susceptible to it are going to be calcium, magnesium, and zinc. IMO, anything over 50g is going to be pushing it especially at your level of carb intake.

    You must not have read the last link where they stated the recommended daily dose is around 38 grams for men.

    The article you linked clearly states 100-150 is absolutely ridiculous amount per day. Also states, 20-30 grams per day is recommended if your calorie count is in the range of 2000-3000 calories per day (which for your off days, is much more calories then you consume).

  18. After finishing my 1425 calories today, I was still famished, so I had a bit of a cheat. 2 scoops of whey, 1/2 a container of strawberries (these prior two ingredients being made into protein fluffs), 2 huge bowls of cereal and almond milk, an apple, and a nutrigrain bar. Not quite an "epic" cheat by any means but I am absolutely stuffed.
