    I weigh around why you weigh and my coach has me eating 2100. He stressed more protein less carbs and I feel great! My lifts are doing good and I feel better just overall! In my opinion it is not to low.

    Reverse dieting is where you slowly add carbs and fat back in after a deficit instead of going hog wild. This minimizes post-cut fat gain and allows you to find a more accurate maintenance level for your new body composition. It will also allow you to find a good baseline to start gaining lean muscle without sacrificing too much leanness.

    ended up at about 249 - 251... Going to get calipered this weekend...

    Going to start reverse dieting by doubling the amount of carbs in breakfast (first week). Each week i will choose another meal to double the calories in till i get to 300 grams of carbs a day...

    I may have missed it but how long will you be eating at this level and is there another step or three to his method?

    I did this for the 6 week cellucore challenge..... Dropped 50 lbs and 6-7 percent bf in 6 weeks... averaged 10-11 workouts per week, morning Hiit, evening weights...

    I am going to add some calories and do a more conventional diet now (more calories)

    I started the thread because i was amazed at how low my calories where at 290+lbs

    been hitting weights 6 days a week, so my carbs are higher on those days.. When i take a day off from the gym i probably get about half the amount of carbs...

    Was sitting at about 150grams of carbs, now i hit between 190 and 210 and look a ton fuller, feel stronger... I also added a little lean red meat to one daily meal as well...
