I'm eating clean but am not leaning out as much as I would like - especially considering I follow the PBF with some crossfit, do IF, and have given up cheat meals for lent. I already eat pretty low carb at between 50-75 grams a day and I eat a lot of protein (probably 1-2 grams per pound of lean body mass a day) and I add in fat from there. However, as I'm not leaning out but rather seem to be stuck, I'm wondering what you all think is the best macro to limit to help that process. I've read plenty of times that "you can't eat too much protein" (unless you're just eating ridiculous amounts - which I'm not) so I'm thinking I should cut back more on protein or fat. If you need me to post what I eat I will but it varies enough that I really don't want to do that if I don't have to. Just thoughts on a general approach would be appreciated. I hope I don't have to cut back on protein - I really enjoy my meat! That and I read about some of the amounts of protein people eat on this forum and I don't even come close to that so I don't see how it can be protein. The only thing I can think is that I'm misjudging the amounts of fat or carbs I'm eating but I don't think I am. Sorry, I'm rambling - probably because I'm frustrated. Thoughts? Thanks!
