    what am i doing wrong?


    alright guys and gals, there's something i'm not seeing here. i've been putting on a little fat, well, it thinks it's fat because my belly is distended a bit, more than it's ever been before and i need someone to point out what i might be missing.

    4:00am 2 scoops whey protein, 1/2 cup egg whites sometimes with 1 slice raisin bread.
    4:45 walk 1 mile then 45 to 60 minutes of lifting and another 30 to 40 of low impact cardio about 70% vo2 max. 2 scoops whey
    7:00 1 cup egg whites, 2 scoops natty pb, 2 scoops of fat free cottage cheese
    9:00 2 scoops natty pb, 2 scoops of fat free cottage cheese, 1 scoop of whey, one cucumber
    12:00 1 chicken breast, 20 almonds, 14 walnuts, 2 scoops natty pb, 2 scoops of fat free cottage cheese
    3:00 salad with just lettuce, a little dressing and a little bacon bits
    6:00 4 scoops of cottage cheese and 1 scoop natty pb

    now that i type that out i think i have a natty pb addiction. is there a support group for that?

    lol - if you start one let me know, i'll join. I need to add all that up to make a comment but it looks good at the outset. I'm commenting here so I remember to come back later.
    Back.... for real this time

    Is a scoop a tablespoon?

    It looks like you don't know the actual amounts you're consuming so you might be consuming more than you think you are, calorie wise.

    if you're gaining fat now on this diet, whatever your intake turns out to be its above maintenance. slash 10%, keep logging, and see how it goes for a time. rinse and repeat

    You eat 1 chicken breast and 1.5 cups egg whites. The rest is whey and cottage cheese.

    I can't remember, are you on CKD?

    1-1/2 cups maybe 2 the scoops i'm talking about are from a normal size serving spoon which is about a tablespoon's worth per scoop

    Hmm.... so I calculate ~2200 calories, 245g protein, 95g fat, 65g carbs. Impressive diet. Idk.... is it possible you are leaving something out? Like 12,000 calorie chili cheese fries smothered in sour cream?

    I'm thinking he may not even be getting fatter. Might want to get the bodyfat measured and test from there from now on.

    no crazy meals like that. i may have a few gummi bears after a w/o but not 1000 of them. i don't know what it is.

    i think i'm going to try and eat a little more, like 200 cals, cause i really don't think i'm eating enough. i mean i'm in the gym 5 to 6 days out of the week. and i'm not screwing around while i'm there either. just can't figure it out. maybe adjust macros too. decrease fat and increase carbs, but slow digesting ones. i've just never been as bloated as this before while cutting. maybe i'm just getting old.....

    Do you think its from the cottage cheese? I mean dairy makes me bloated all the time, cottage cheese, milk, cheese, whatever. Maybe cut out all the dairy? It could be all that sodium aswell making you look bloated and not actually fat, 1 serving (1/2 cup) of the low fat kind i use has ~500mg sodium. thats 20% of RDA and yeah RDA is lame for some things but still 2g of sodium is ample unless your a "salty sweater"

    Yeah sometimes you need to actually up the calories. 2200 is on the low side. Keep us posted on how ur doing.

    i will.

    my short term goals are this.....
    remove all creatine from my diet
    switch some of the PB for whole almonds
    reduce my cottage cheese intake by 50% and replace with walnuts and caisin protein
    add one can of tuna to my diet on a daily basis

    re-evaluate in two weeks

    if you can afford it, tuna sashimi is awesome. I try to only get it like 2-3 times a week cause its pricey but its guilt free and delicious.

    I was gonna say something to the effect. you said your stomach area is DISTENDED so i immediately went to gas/bloat. a short course of probiotics sometimes clears my issues up and i'm back on my way to cutting proper.
