Thoughts and advice

  1. Thoughts and advice


    Just wondering what everyone's take on how long is "to long" to run a calorie restricted diet. I am currently doing 2200 calories on training days mostly of high protein moderate fat and lower carbs, and on off days I stay at around 1800 calories. I do EDT style training which is a type of HIIT/ weight training in itself. My body really isn't losing anymore weight. And I have been dieting for awhile but am scared to drop cals anymore. And I want to stay ripped and keep any bad weight off cuz I'm about to go home from my deployment soon. Any advice on how long I can stay on a restrictive cal diet, or should I up cals a little for awhile?

    how long have you been doing this

    what's your carbs at

    are you doing cardio, if so, how much

    are you cold, lethargic, and/or lacking sex drive

  3. As long until you hit your goals. Always refeed and assess your weight loss. People make the mistake of falling into starvation mode and stop losing weight. So they unknowingly reduce calories even further/train harder, only to completely halt progress all together. Keep a lookout for that and good luck

  4. of importance is continued adjustment of the diet.. if your intake dictated that calorie count 10-15 lbs ago, then you are not losing any longer because you are eating closer to maintnence. remember to readdress your TDEE every 2 weeks for continued progress
