Ok. Well, I'm not going to suggest you do anything, rather, I'll tell you about my diet. I'm on the 7th week of an 8 week cut. I started out doing low carb, not as low as 30g/day, I was probably eating between 50 and 100g/day. I couldn't handle eating such few carbs. I started eating more carbs from week 4 til today. My results thus far:
On low carbs I went from about 161lbs down to 155. When I reintroduced carbs to my diet, I lost 5 more pounds. The only thing in common from both diets is that I was eating fewer calories than I burned. I lost a total of 11 lbs in 7 weeks so far. Strength loss was minimal, I was keeping track of muscle/strength loss using my bench press performance. I went down from 225x8 reps, to 225x5 reps.
On weeks 1-4, I was doing a regular strength training program 4x a week.
On week 4 I failed to lose a single pound, on week 5 and on I started doing 30 min HIIT cardio session 3x a week(along with my weight training sessions) and decreased my calorie intake by 100 Cal.
I'd suggest just eat a balanced diet where you're burning more Calories than you consume.
I don't understand what you mean? Well, idk, I think for best results, you'd have to put in a little work to know what you're eating. Check out my gym progress topic.
, I started it on my latest progress which was a 7 week cut/diet. I didn't count macros every day, what I did, before I started my diet, I made a meal plan to follow with all macros counted at that time. I would eat (almost) the same thing every day for 7 weeks, plus or minus a cheat meal here and there, idk man. I'd say it's difficult to get the results you want if you really have no idea of how much you're actually eating. It took me a whole Sunday afternoon to plan this stuff out (not too bad I'd say). I'd just say don't stick to the plan religiously, just calibrate, if you're losing too much weight too fast, eat a little more, if you're not losing weight, eat a little less, or exercise more or less (play around with carbs if you want to change calorie intake, be a bit more constant with fats and proteins). Just calibrate based on what results you're getting. From what I've read, you can get results off of eating twice a day, it's just optimal to have your meals more spread out.
If you are not able to cut the carbohydrates to much you could try to improve the amount of cardio workout.
About the whole nutrition thing, try to search the internet for some bloggs and dedicated forums! I have read (just slightly) about people with diabetes and how they manage to get extremely fit and strong without any issues. Try to look up this bloggs and you will probably get all the information you will ever need!
My knowledge about diabetes is that 2 big meals sound like a complete crapy thing to since this will then get your blood suger real high and then real low later by the day. There is a lot of hardcore diets out there to follow (eat every 3 hour etc.) this will probably be the best thing for you to do. And then later when you feel fine with your bodyfat you can change your diet.
I´m currently at 8,4% (according to the scale at the fitness center (probably not true anyway) and I can now eat a lot more the while cutting. Still in my case I need maybe 2000kcal each day to break even. While cutting I was doing 1600kcal. Don´t know why I telling you, most probably to make you ready for the "after cutting life ".
ok ill try to find something ... im on the Gll fat loss diet right now and to be honest i have no fkin clue what i am doing, I am just following his diet and getting results so far.. after i get to 10% i want to lean bulk which seems hard because I have no clue how to do that as well lol
Hey Marco Polo, if you're looking for a solid guide on how to set up a proper diet to fit your lifestyle and activity level, I'd check out the Renaissance Diet e-book over at Juggernaut Training.
It's a template of solid, science based info, not a "fad diet" or anything like that. And honestly, it's one of the best guides I've ever read when it comes to understanding what's important in a diet and how to set up one for yourself, no matter what your goals are. You can even buy customized ones for yourself (granted they cost much more), but that's also an option. Check it out.

I didn't think the "Get Hung" guide would have girls eyeing my bulge. It did.
I didn't think that your exercise and diet advice would have girls checking me out. It did.
I DEFINITELY didn't think that your hair-loss prevention would fix my hairline. Not in a billion years. It mother fucking did. You saved me a crazy amount of time, a ton of money, unnecessary pain, and destroyed my #1 source of anxiety. DESTROYED IT.
Kratom is next!
