    Hey Joe

    I’ve been in a calorie deficit for over 12 weeks, realistically landing approx 2300-2500 calories per day. Early days worked well, chipped away at bodyfat levels and maintaining muscle, but the last 3-4 weeks the BF has stopped dropping but the scales have continued to fall, and I’ve just shrunk size wise…Quads don’t fill out the pants, not filling out ths shirts etc. im soft now, losing weight but not getting any leaner, pretty shit!

    What’s the play here? How do I get leaner and fill back out (softness is killing me!) My calories are mainly protein and Carbs, I train first thing in the morning on an empty stomach, have my intra, post, and 4 meals. First two meals highest calories mostly protein Carbs, 3rd meal protein fat, 4th and final meal mainly protein carbs. I’d say my fat level a little low around 40g per day, but I have worried about increasing and raising overall caloric levels and not achieving the goal.

    I’m 176cm, now 74kg (was 79kg) and approx 12% bf…so still have some to lose to get under 10% target.

    Appreciate the response

    Thanks Joe, great info again and something I’ve never tried…although the flat comment was a bit ‘deflating’ haha, oh god

    Any recommendations for when to try the higher carb days? On a rest day before a big session (Sunday before legs Monday), after a big session (legs Monday morning so all day Monday), or doesn’t really matter as it’s spread over the week?
