  1. High-fruit doesn't work very well for me (being a diabetic) My blood-glucose levels shoot up and I get nauseous, tired, and I struggle to maintain stable levels. Often I'd get too low afterwards (I had a few cases of severe hypoglycemia) so that didn't work for me. Now I'm doing a carb-cycle. Three days of 30% carbs, 25% fat 45% prot, followed by one day of 45% carbs, 32% prot and 23% fat. Then it's another 3 days of 30/25/45 into 45/32/23. When I think of it I haven't actually carb-cycled before, so maybe that's what I've done wrong!
  2. I began working out 3-4 years ago (at the same time I turned vegan) and it's been a very good journey so far. However, there is one issue that continue to haunt me; my body fat %. I'm not trying to hit a single digit number, I just want to get rid of my love handles. I suspect that me being a type 1 diabetic has a lot to do with it. I was diagnosed at the age of 7; now, 16 years later I am 23 years old. I'm 178 CM tall and about 79-80kg heavy. I have little fat elsewhere on my body (it's all located around my midsection, and some of it is visceral fat --the unhealthy type--) I've tried a lot of different approaches - 1500 calories, 1900 calories, 2300 calories, 2500 calories and 2800 calories. All HIT-cardio, 3 day splits with cardio in between, 3 day full body with cardio in between, 5 day split, 3 day full body with rest in between. Low fat, high carb, mod prot. Low carb, mod fat high prot, 80-10-10. Intermittent fasting, 3 meals with snacks, 5 smaller meals, 1 large meal, etc etc etc. I've tried most of the things to try (for long periods of time) My midsection just won't budge - and it's really killing my motivation. I don't work out for a six-pack, I just don't want to have a gut or love handles. I now have 3 days split with 2 cardio days in between, sat and sun is off. The length of my workouts is at around 35 minutes. (Very intense) My TDEE is 2400 calories, and I'm eating 2300 and burning the rest off with my workouts. My macros are: carbs: 271. Fat: 69. Prot: 138. I take multivitamins and minerals, ZMA, Humapro Bcaa and 100% organic soy protein. I do not smoke, I do not drink and I get between 6-8 hours of sleep every night. Does anyone have any tips on how I can lose the last few pounds? It's driving me crazy.
