Today my trainer did an assessment of my progress, which was both positive, and negative. The positive was that my BF% is still at about 18%. Also, I have lost another 12 pounds over the last month or so... My measurements were also surprising, in that I lost three inches (from my previous measurements) from my neck, chest, waist, hips, biceps, calves, and thighs. I'm really only disappointed with the latter three measurements.
My current composition is: 5' 7", 164lbs, 18% body fat, 33 years old.
My current goal is: 160lbs, 10% body fat.
As I mentioned in a previous post, I've only been consuming about 1600 cals per day, roughly macros at 100g protein, 50g fat, 200g carbs. Apparently, that is too few calories, and I have likely lost some muscle, which would explain the drop in my bicep/leg measurements.
Tonight I spent some time revamping my diet... Would you mind taking a look, and giving me some tips?
Six meals, split over the day, to include:
M1 – 4 oz seitan, 5 oz lentils: 365 cals, 3.5g fat, 42.5g carb, 43g protein
M2 – 8oz tofu: 346 cals, 18.6g fat, 8g carb, 37g protein
M3 – 6oz tempeh: 396 cals, 19.8g fat, 27.6g carb, 36g protein
M4 – 2 slices Ezekiel, 0.7oz Peanut Butter: 276.9 cals, 11.01g fat, 33.85g carb, 12.97g protein
M5 – 6oz tofu, 6oz broccoli: 320 cals, 14.6g fat, 17.4g carb, 33g protein
M6 – 12oz watermelon: 108 cals, 1.2g fat, 25.2g carb, 2.4g protein
Total Cals: 1,812
Total Fat: 68g
Total Carb: 155g
Total Protein: 164g
Thoughts? Too few calories? Too much fat?
