Probably need more fibre in your diet. Fats help too!

Theres a ton of different ways. If you want input of estimated BF then upload photos and have people comment.

The best way is to not worry about BF but use measurement(s) consistently.

Thanks for the reply endo mate

i will measure the belly again at the 2 week stage (on monday) and hopefully it drops another inch or so 

im surprised how much my body responds to low carb, but then again could be alot of water loss, lets find out in the coming days

The initial drop will be water mate. But stick with it as Keto (sub 50g net carbs is Keto) has its benefits, don’t let punks who have never tried it tell you other wise!!

If you feel good now just wait till after about 5-6 weeks.... you’ll feel amazing and be  full beans. Sleep, energy and concentration will be at its peak. 

If you stick with it for a while and find out that you wanna go back to moderate carbs then implement them slowly, but not too slow. If you have any questions in regards to that you know where I am.

So you ignored all the advice @Endomorph84 gave you and just lowered your cals even more, 1350 isn't much mate

How accurately are you tracking your calories?

200g of chicken thighs is more than 238 calories.

I saw this too, Easily double the kcals

So 2week update (day 14)

1.2kg drop and 1 inch lost from belly this week.

this is litterally half the progress from last week (week1) 

is this purely due to week one being water weight?

only one inch loss from belly compared to two last week

i may start doing 500cal cardio daily (subject to my legs hacking it on the stationary bike) from today to see what difference it makes for this week

You can lead a horse to water mate but you cant make it drink!

Gents as i alluded much earlier in this thread with me incorrectly counting the cals of 200g chicken litterally half what they should be, i had in fact been on 1900cal for a month with zero weight loss. Hence that would surely be my maintenance. 

Anyways end of week 3 update, another 1kg weight and 1inch off the belly loss this week. Which is the same rate as last week. the first week was 2kg loss (water weight)

so it looks like i am losing at a consistent rate of 1kg a week at 1200-1300cals per day under 40g carbs and intermittent fasting

i didnt increase cardio this week as planned so still only averaging a couple 300cal bike rides per week

i greatly respect and appreciate all comments and advice etc so look forward to what you gents make of progress so far
