current goal is 250lbs by nov 22nd.
im keeping a log on my website.. and also everything thats on my diet.. so far this is it.. i will add food info as i add them to my diet.
Welcome to a T3 crash. Hope you got some T3 to offset the loss your gonna have based on a low caloric intake. Your Thyroid will stop producing a lot of t3 because it thinks your starving it, which in turn, stops your weight loss.
Or, take a day a week for a cheat day to offset it and trick it.
And yes, ONE Cheat Meal a week is what you're supposed to do, unless you're on a Pre-Contest (bodybuilding) diet!! Or a Cheat Day, if you must!! But, get to the weights as soon as possible. That will only speed up the fat loss. And do full body work outs for a while. The more muscles you use in a work out, the more calories you burn!
Supplement wise, I'd add in some L-Carnitine and ALA.
The L-Carnitine should be taken with your ECA stack. Take the ALA about 5 to 10 mins before you eat anything with carbs.
Both are available at Wal-mart for the cheapest prices.
L-Carn is 11 bux a bottle and ALA is about 6.50.
I'd take 500 mg of ALA / 100 mgs of carbs. The ALA will shuttle the carbs into your muscles and allow for more to be utilized than stored as any fat. Most body builders swear by it during their cutting AND bulking cycles.
