Looking for some advice; I'm trying to lower my body fat, prior to going on my first bulk , and feel like I've got everything on point, but the numbers on the scale just aren't moving as much as I thought they would.
Below are my details, routine and food plan, any criticism or advice on how to improve it would be greatly appreciated:
Gender: Male Height: 6'2" Starting Weight: 235lbs (06.01.20) Current Weight: 231lbs Estimated BF%: 30% Job: Desk based
Each gym session is 60-90mins, prioritises compound lifts, and uses progressive overload protocol.
Mon: Push Tue: Legs Wed: Pull Thu: Rest Fri: Push Sat: Legs + 30 min HIIT Sun: Pull + 30 min HIIT
Everyday: 30 min LISS
NUTRITION I'm a veggie, hence the no meat.
My daily kcal limit is 1800, and 1600 on my rest day.
Supplements: Multivitamin, Vegan Omega Complex, Vitamin D, Psyllium Husk, Magnesium, Green Tea Extract
Breakfast: Porridge with maple syrup Snack #1: Peanut butter on toast Lunch: Omelette with veg & soya mince Snack #2: Cashew nuts & raisins Dinner: Omelette with veg & soya mince Post-Workout: Whey protein kCals: 1547 Protein: 175g Carbs: 94g Fat: 54g
The remaining calories are used up pretty much how I see fit, but I have been sticking to clean eating as much as possible, along with protein bars.
My lifts have all been increasing at a healthy rate, and I have noticed increased muscle fullness and tone, along with potentially decreased chest fat, leg fat and have had to tighten my belt a couple of notches.
I'm used to tracking calories, and have had success at losing weight in the past, but not with the level of training I'm doing currently, so I'm struggling to know whether this is going right or, if not, what the solution is.
At the end of the day, I'm seeing some positive differences but I'm wondering g whether these are really optimal or if there's room for improvement, so any advice offered would be appreciated, cheers.
