I’m finding I read here less than I used to. There are threads I follow and if I end up with a question over something, this is where I come.
Last week I went over that number that’s my screaming, wire my jaws together, never eat again, mental barrier: 210. A couple of days later it was down to 207.5. Today it was back over 210 again.
My problem is that I since I did a post on being confused over the proper ways to weight train, I changed my workouts now to every 4 days. I upped my protein a bit, closer to .8g/lb of body weight not .8g/lb of lean body mass, which is up by 25% or so. Some days I get very hungry, most days I’m fine. I can tell subtle differences in more muscle and so can my wife. There’s more difference in the weights and time under tension. My body composition scale, though says my muscle mass is going down and I’m gaining fat. A real puzzle.
For a couple of years, now, it seems the only time I’m losing is if I’m doing alternate day fasts and I can’t both fast and keep my protein up to build some muscle, so I really don’t know what to do.
I’ve read many of you saying that if your weight gets up too much, you do day or two fast. I think I’m going to fast on the fourth day (in this case tomorrow) or third. I’m just not sure which/why/what to do.
Well, about to go out for the every other day, 1-hour bike ride. I’ll be bach.
