Am i doing something wrong?
Hello ! This is the first time i post in this forum and i must admit it like its contents!
I've been on a clean diet for some time now, i've managed to drop from 83kg and 13% BF to 80 kg @ 10%. I'm 31 years old and I workout 4x per week (i lift weights) but i'm no bodybuilder or athlete of any kind, i just train to be healthy! I try to maintain a low carb diet (below 100 gr) with moderate protein and high fat intake but it seems like i've stuck at 10% and i can't seem to get rid of the stubborn fat just below my naval. What am i doing wrong? Should i eat more carbs on training days? (i lift heavy on the compound movements like squats, deadlifts etc).
Read all the ingredients of everything. Absolutely no grains or sugars. Use a nutrition tracker for a week and determine your macro %s. Then up the fat %.

Sub 10% takes extra effort. I've heard many people need to start counting calories to go sub 10% just to make sure they're not eating more than they realize, etc. Idk...sub 10% is mostly for vanity, not health.
How tall are you? you sure you're at 10% BF? doesn't sound right?
