    loss of appetite - good or is my met too slow?


    Hey Guys,

    So last week my appetite absolutely stopped. I've been going off 2 or 3 protein shakes a day, lean meats and the like. Typical cutting diet but I haven't been strictly counting calories. Why?

    Because I rarely feel hungry.. Even when I do a tiny serving will do

    I'm wondering if I should just enjoy it while it lasts or has my metabolism slowed to a halt?

    I've lost probably 1.5kg fat in the past week. Don't know how much of that is water.

    most of my calories would be coming from protein, then fats and lastly carbs. Some rice and maybe 2 slices of grain bread for lunch. Roast chicken, cottage cheese, stuff like that

    Thanks guys

    Well.... hopefully your posted stats are not accurate because if you're 6'1" and 88 lbs. (~40 kg) you should go to a hospital right away. If you're infact 88kg (~194lbs.) then I'd still say you shouldn't allow yourself to lose too much weight. I'm 5'9" and hovering 190lbs.

    Now.... no appetite does not equal halted metabolism necessarily. The metabolism is controlled by a few things, including mood, stress, fluid intake, sleep patterns, and others.

    Bottom line, if you are truely losing bodyfat and not catabolising muscle, then enjoy it. Especially if you have a higher bf % and need to cut before summer.

    You will, however, eventually want to start gaining again. No one said its easy to gain. Its just as hard to gain weight as it is to lose weight, maybe even harder. Sometimes it means forcing food even when you aren't hungry.

    Stay anabolic bro. Good luck.
    Back.... for real this time

    cheers mate.

    I am just rebelling against your imperial measurements

    Yeah i got a bit fat over the past few months due to living interstate and starting a new job. I'm aiming to cut as much as I can until my gf gets back from overseas. Got 6 weeks to do it in, and T2 + OEP coming in next week. Hoping for the best

    Lol - I'm in science so I use the English system as well. The American system is so retarded. I still don't know how many quarts are in a gallon or pints are in a quart.

    Units aside, good luck on your cut.
