Hi everyone, so like many with a New Years has come a renewed focus on my weight loss journey. I’m not stranger to this, I’ve dropped from 310 to 220 over 4 years from 2014-2018. My twins were born in 2019 and since then I’ve put quite a bit of weight back on, currently 270. I’m no stranger to lifting though, played sports all throughout my life and have been in the gym consistently since then. I’ve let my nutrition go haywire though. Maybe a lower carb approach would be better for me? Anyone been in my shoes able to provide some insight?
Hi Thomas. Sorry to get into the ‘replies’ to your question.
Considering your life and work commitments my personal opinion is to find the right ‘spot’ that helps you to be consistent with your nutrition. Whether that is high or low carb, keto or others. I lost around 25kg many years ago, and I didn’t use to lift (but I was into swimming). I mentally needed some carbs, fats and proteins in my meals, so I prepped accordingly. I tried high fat/low carb. But this didn’t sit well with me. So yeah, bottom line, my suggestion is try out what works for you in terms of sustainable/long term approach, adjust to a caloric deficit until you are happy with the fat loss and increase the calories to maintenance afterwards.
