Your calorie intake is low compared to what your maintenance level is supposed to be. So that is puzzling.
I don't know anything about diets for reducing fat to very low levels but you might try increasing your NEAT (non-exercise activity thermogenesis). Very often, people who go to the gym or who train regularly spend most of the rest of the time sitting down: at work, on the way to work, at home. Most of us need to move more and move more often. If this applies to you, going for a walk on your non-training days - if your legs aren't too sore - could help you lose a few more pounds of fat. Or walking on your training days. A quite vigorous walk rather than a stroll. But not necessarily Olympic gold medal-standard race walking.
I spend quite a lot of time sitting. I get up from the computer every now and again and do some squats, pull ups, dips, or various vigorous things. Not to failure - more greasing-the-groove style to increase my NEAT. I do the same when I am watching television and the advertisements come on. I might walk up and down the stairs three times and do some pull ups at the top of the stairs each time. It's not recommended to do these things on long bus journeys, though.
Hey, thanks for your response. I've been keeping my calories below my maintenance level in order to drop some pounds (trying to get down to about 160). I'll admit I am a bit lost on my macros with respect to fat loss, without muscle loss. I would really like to cut my body fat % down to the 8 - 10% range; or at least until I can see some definition in my abs. Any advice you might have would be appreciated.
Thanks for the info on NEAT. I do sit at a computer all day, so I will take your tips and apply them as often as possible. I definitely notice that my legs get very agitated toward the end of the day; such that my concentration on work is nearly impossible. I usually mitigate by standing at my desk, but I should take your advice and walk around for a bit. I trained legs yesterday at home, and noticed that I was pretty sore this morning, so I walked to the train instead of catching the bus like normal. Thankfully, it was nice and cool out. Thanks again for the info!
