I am an ex-pro athlete and since marriage and kids let myslef go. I know nutrition has changed dramatically from my days of my competing (retired in 1998), but I think I have read up on all the latest reccomendations. I am also doing HIIT cardio supplemented with weight traing 6 days a week. Anyways, I am using "Lose it" to monitor all my calories and macro nutrients put in my body daily. I am 6'1" and weigh 300.4lbs (no change from last week...according to my math I should lose 2 per week).
Weekly Average of macro nutrients are:
Carbs: 226.3g (complex)
Calorie intake per day about: 2390
I'm hoping this is the main reason I am not losing like I thought. I am taking 500mg of testosterone a week, will this prevent weight loss? I know it will build muscle and I should still lose fat, but I cannot be 300lbs for life.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
I know someone will ask for typical eating day so here u go:
8am - Syntha 6 Protien Shake
1030 - 1c brown rice, 5 egg whites, and 1 whole egg, with a cup of green veggies
1230 - 1c brown rice, 4-6 oz of baked fish w/green veggies
230 - 20 alminds and 1.5 oz beef jerky
5 - lean chicken or steak with 1c whole grain pasta and salad or green veggies
7 - Syntha 6 protien Shake
830 - cottage cheese
Thanks in advance!
