    That isn't true. But I can understand why you think that. I used to think stuff like that. I used to be obese, almost 60 lbs overweight. And back in those days, I had a whole list of self defeating lies I used to tell myself. But once I actually kicked myself in the but and tried, I proved myself wrong, and I never looked back.

    I did hit around single digits last year. I wanted to go a little lower. But I slacked, and that's the only reason why. If I want to improve, I know what to do.

    My carbs are low, probably 50-100g/day. However I'll try tracking what and how much I eat to estimate the macronutriets ratio.

    Any ideas?
    Try eating 2 meals per day instead and you'll see all the difference. It makes it A LOT easier to eat less calories. It also makes it A LOT easier to make proper adjustments as necessary. If you need to drop calories, just make an adjustment to one of your meals. It makes it EASY!!!

    Try it and you will see.

    Also, try paying attention to calories a bit. I'm just talking generally speaking however. You can track every day if you want, but it isn't necessary. Just count up once in a while to see how you're numbers are looking. If you aren't losing weight, check to see what calorie dense foods you might be eating that you could easily eliminate temporarily. When calories are dropped, the fat will start melting off.

I have vascularity on my arms, shoulders, legs and low abdomen. I still have a little to lose on my lower six pack and lower back. I lift twice a week and do a sprint 8 routine once a week. I've had to resort to tracking what I eat and I've averaged 1800 calories a day since Jan 1. I IF 5-6 times a week (eat between noon and 8pm). I was never hungry when dropping the initial weight, but to get below 15% I've had to tolerate a little hunger although I find skipping breakfast pretty manageable. Will I make to 7-8%? We'll see!
    @GKL.... Any update on how this worked for you? Im about in the same place that you were describing.
