  • Hello from Maine

    Hello fellow PBers. I figured I would finally join instead of lurking in the shallow waters. I have been a PBer since november after a good friend told me about it.
    Just a little about myself: 2 years ago I was 270lbs and slowly have made my way down through diet and exercise to now 180-190 on a 6'4" frame. I am having a hard time with the last few pounds of low belly fat. I always tell myself to be patient, it took years to get "fat" it's going to take sometime to get lean. For the past 2months I have really dialed in to under 70g carbs a day on workout days(due to supps and dairy). On off days it's is common to be around 50g. It seams as I have leveled off, any sugestions? I just read the post on re-feeding, might that be what I need?

      If you want to lose a few more lbs. then I suggest lowering your calorie intake. Thats a lot of protein. Just eat a little less and maybe workout a little more. Keep the ratios and you should be able to lose a few more lbs. a little easier. Listen to your body as much as possible.

        Maybe I should have included that my goal is to add lean muscle which is why I have such high protein. My workouts are usually on,off,on,off,on,off,on,off,off then repeat. Usually 45mins or so of weight lifting and 20 min cardio. Plus on my days off I am on the go, I am a Firefighter/EMT and work alot of hrs a week and then when not working I'm usually doing a home project so it is go,go,go.

          I also should add that as of late I cannot seem to get full, I find myself wanting to eat everything.

            Maybe consider consuming more fat and not as much protein? Almost 300 grams is A LOT no matter how big you are and what your goals are.

            Try drinking water or tea when you are hungry. Sometimes this fights off the hunger for a bit.

            Or, just do not eat as much at one time. You say you are hungry all the time but once you swallow a few bites you should not be starved anymore. Eat a little less at each meal. Just stop eating when you are satisfied, not when you are completely "full".

                  Here is a little update, on Sunday I did a re-feed. Since I have re-evaluated my intake habits and noticed I was falling back into the CW way of eating a big meal 3 times a day. I have since gone back to just snacking rather than having a "meal". I have debated fasting for a day and so far yesterday I was 500 cal less and today it is now 100pm and I havent eaten anyhting and feel great. Thanks for the help.

                        Well I went 24hrs fasting I probably could have gone longer but didn't want to chance it since I was working. I would have hated to be at a point that I was hungry and then got a call that lasted a few hrs and be in a bad situation. Anyway I was happy with my 24hr fast, I wasnt sure I could do it but it was no problem and I will probably do it again I ended it with a protein shake, hamburger, salad and cottage cheese. Maybe a little too much? But again thanks for your help!
