Im 45 and trying to recomp. I started dieting hap-hazard about 8 months ago and have lost approx 50#. I have about 10 to 15 # of fat left to shread and I started back into the gym about 2 month ago...That part is going well so far. A little history: 6 years ago I was at about 6-7% BF and 190# at 5-9"...doing pretty dam good but my nutrition wasnt dialed. I burned all my BF through my metabollism and the intense WO's. My WO's are not close yet to the intensity to where they were but am looking for an edge to help me get things rolling faster. Im not able to take Yohimbe or strong fat burners...my CNS freaks out. Im currently taking Carnatine 1.5 gms/day and 1 or 2 Lean Xtreme/day, and eating semi clean with calorie restristriction. I usually eat at most moderate to sparing amount of complexy carbs if any at all other than leafy greens. The last #'s of BF dont want to go! So my question is 1) How many grams of carbs ( in general ) does it take to produce an insulin response. and 2) What else might I try to boost my fat loss other than cardio.
I currently WO every other day on a 2 way split. ARRRRGGGHHHHH...need your help Peeps!!!
All of your suggestions will be much appreciated!!!
