Hi folks! I'm a strength based athlete and am looking for some advice. Due to my other work I recently had to take some time more or less off from my regular training, and also had an extended period of having to eat out a lot/eat badly etc. During this time I gained 10lbs. I assumed this weight would fall off as soon as I resumed my regular routine, but I'm now 4wks in and while my strength has more or less returned (at least the weights I am lifting at the gym are back to the same they were before the break), the extra weight remains (in fact if anything I've gained a couple more pounds). While I'm obviously not thrilled with this for aesthetic reasons, I'm also really struggling with the bodyweight-based exercises that are most important to my performance--max chinups, pullups etc. are all down a few reps--and I don't think the two are unrelated. I have a whole-foods based, vegan diet with plenty of protein and healthy fats, and generally follow an eat whatever I like philosophy with food. I haven't had to worry about losing weight since I began seriously training aerial work several years ago, and previous efforts involved unhealthily severe calorie restriction which I don't think will jive well with training. So I am looking for some tips/advice/articles/books etc. about how to lose extra fat without compromising strength and performance. Thanks for your help!
