    Dropping the gut


    So I recently had posted on the carbs and dropping of carbs and the differences they made. I had done a paleo diet and lost weight (roughly 20 pounds or so) I lost muscle and fat with that drop. Now that I've tried to put some carbs back in I've gained some weight but the majority in the gut/stomach area. I don't care so much about the weight as much as the look (muscle mass/flat stomach). I was advised to stat a thread for input on what I should try. I would like to put on some mass (even slowly) but the gut is what I want to reduce. A typical day will be some eggs&turkey slices breakfast 930/10am, either brown rice or veggies w 8oz of protein for lunch 130/2pm, a protein shake w water 330/4pm, a protein bar gluten free around 630/645pm, and dinner when I dont have brown rice for lunch i'll have a sweet potato and 8.oz of protein/if i had brown rice for lunch then i'll have maybe a banana and 8.oz of protein. Dinner is right after I workout btw...

    Sorry for such a long start to this as I want to include as much detail possible, I will lower the Carbs, I just wanna put on quality mass/lean but I wanna lose this gut.. Any tips/suggestions are appreciated. Thanks

    In. Try laying out your meals in a more reader friendly format for starters like this:
    Meal 1: Time -askdfjhaskdlfh
    Meal 2: Time - lkajdsfljad
    etc.

    As we've discussed, you need to start by calculating your total calories and find out what you're eating now and then go from there. The actual foods can be tweaked to meet the total calories from there.

    Post up your stats (ht, wt, bf%, tdee (if you know it, if not use an online calc to find a rough est)) and we can all help

    The meal1: time & meal2: time didnt come through, as far as stats im 5,11 and weight is in the 175-180 range, bf% not sure and the tdee is supposedly 2522.

    Also it's a bit hard to get in X amount of calories or macros while on low/no carbs, what do you guys suggest ?

    What's hard? Getting enough cals or getting too many?

    On a low carb diet you can get in more calories by not choosing lean cuts when you buy meats. Don't drain the fats when you cook. You can take a shot of EVOO in the morning and one at night, or put EVOO / coconut oil in your shakes. You can also eat coconut oil, it's tasty and palatable. These are all tricks to keeping calories up high enough on a low carb diet.

    It's harder NOT to get your cals on a low carb diet. Just eat but butters and higher fat meats. Fat has over double the cals per gram of pro or carbs so it adds up waaayyyy faster

    There are so many options, it really depends what type of diet you want to do and can stick to.
