Welcome!!! This will be my first log, so please bear with me
After coming down from 185lbs to 170lbs, I’m still hanging on to some ab fat. I’ve never been able to shed that…..yet. I just finished off a run of , along with a couple bottles of OEP before that, so I’m ready for a stim break. NP had a sweet deal on the / combo, so I decided to give it a shot. My training is usually fasted in the morning. I haven’t been relying too much on extraneous cardio – concentrating on diet & training (I’m pretty active as is), but for this log I’ll be trying to up my time on the treadmill as well. I’m aiming to lose as much fat as possible (show them abs!!!), but really a recomp is what I’d love – maybe gain some muscle while dropping fat (who wouldn’t, right?)
My diet is pretty clean – farmers market & local butcher – fresh veggies, local meat & eggs, no sodas, try to steer clear of processed foods. The main culprit I run into is the random candy aisle raid – I try to keep those to less than once a month, otherwise, I’m good to go. I don’t track calories as tightly anymore, as tracking/typing just wears me out after a while & my cheat days end up worse.
Normal breakfast: hard boiled eggs, greek yogurt with almonds/a bit of granola, maybe a bit of cottage cheese & almond butter, fruit smoothie with protein powder
Normal lunch: couple burgers, side of veggies, quinoa/rice of some sort
Normal dinner: couple pieces of grilled/baked fish, veggies, quinoa/rice of some sort
Snacks: Nuts, beef jerky, carrots, protein shake
Height – 6’
Weight – 170lbs
BF – approx. 15% (? – guessing)
Training – 4 day split – Lower/Upper/off/Lower/Upper/off – based on Lyle McDonalds generic bulking routine
Diet – IF: lots of eggs, fish, venison – married to a vegetarian, so I get plenty of veggies, then I’ll throw some sort of animal protein on the grill to go with it.
Other Supps: BCAAs, Creatine, Protein, Multi-V, , ,
Oddly enough, I love the smell – some supps have such a funky odor when you open the cap… Intial thoughts are mainly noticing my lack of stims. I want to go completely stim-free (except for maybe a cup of green tea during the day) but so far I feel a cup of coffee will help hold back my lack-of-caffeine headaches. Nothing major to report, I feel a slight rise of facial temp, but the rest of my body feels normal, if not slightly colder, although I do have to pee basically CONSTANTLY.
Due to the stim break, my daily routine, &/or calendar timing, it worked out that I will be starting off this stack while I run through a deload week – over the weekend my weights just tanked & my workout took way longer than usual, either from lack of focus/energy or a much needed break, so it seemed like perfect timing to deload.
