The accent Chinese proverb goes: "Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.” My plan with this blog post and the embedded video below is to do exactly that… you guys are going fishing!
What you see here is my baseline diet. It is what I will be using for the next 2-3 weeks, and it is what I will subtract from initially. My goal is to retain as much muscle and possible while losing body fat. I’m generally really good at losing body fat, but in the past it usually happens at expense of losing muscle as well. This time I’m going to keep the fullness and muscle while losing bodyfat by being meticulous with my diet and macros. The goal is to lose 2 lbs per week at most. Some weeks I will need to reduce calories (mostly from my carbs), and some weeks I will need to add cardio. It is even possible that I will need to reduce cardio and ADD carbs. The diet needs to be dynamic based on what’s happening with my body. I plan to have a weekly blog post about my progress, my diet, cardio, and supplementation!
I hope this blog helps you in your personal Readiness Trials journey, and if you have any questions you’d like me to address please email them to Eduardo@redcon1.com and he’ll make sure I address them in a future blog post!
