I need to lose some of the muscle I've built and replace it with fat.
Now before you beat the crap out of me verbaly - here's my situation:
I got my body fat to 12% from cardio and weights. I was following the guides in Oxygen nd M&F Hers magazines and thought this is what I should achieve and this is how I should live year round. I was wrong and I found out I was damaging my health and my body was shutting down.
I went from 102 to 117 pounds (5'3") since September and gained some body fat, but mosstly muscle from changing my lifting routine.
I havent' had a period in 14 months and my doctor said I'm not producing enough hormones to menstruate. I need to gain more body fat.
I don't want to be huge, so I would like to lose muscle and replace it with fat so I don't change size too much.
I eat about 2500 - 3000 cal/day with mostly lean protein and fresh fruit & veggies. Nothing processed.
My current routine is:
Mon: lifting 1 hour -Chest/delt/tricep
Tues: cardio 30 mins
Wed: lifting 1 hour -Legs
Thurs: cardio 30 mins
Fri: lifting 1 hour -Back/biceps
Sat: cardio 1 hour
