Hey guys. Haven't been here since January and wanted to come back to where I got my start in lifting to learn more.
I've been dieting to lose weight, but I was curious what people on here thought of how I've been doing it. I've heard mixed opinions.
My stats are:
Target weight approx. 206 by early October*
What I've been eating daily:
300g protein (chicken, tuna, etc.; shakes postworkout)
145g carbs (complex, except postworkout; whole grain wraps, oatmeal, pita bread)
110g fat (almost exclusively from nuts/nut products)
2770 calories total
A few questions:
1.) How do these numbers look?
2.) I've read that carbs should be mostly avoided during this phase except in the morning, and simple carbs postworkout. Should I eat higher-than-usual amounts of carbs during that morning phase to meet the 145g requirement (or whatever the number is), or is it alright to fall below it?
3.) What should I be eating at night?
I've had success so far (lost ~17lbs. since early July) but I've plateau'd. I lift 3-4 days a week (a mix of maximal and dynamic work), wrestle 2-3 days a week (90 minutes) and run (fast-paced mile and half-mile repeats) on the off-days.
I'd love any advice. Thanks.
