    Hi your diet looks deficient in fiber, vegetables and fruit.

    Fiber target is 35 gram per day.

    BCAAs are a complete waste of money.

    either he's resting for 10 minutes between sets, doing hours of cardio or obliterating every single body part

    also OP, maybe i missed something but why are your meals and timings so awfully specific? to me it seems like you're trying to nail it 1000% right for no reason

    Hi guys,

    Sorry I screwed up. I average about 12 hours a week at the gym. I screwed up. Give or take a little. I have one off day. Please forgive me. Yeah 30 hours my ass .

    I alternate everyday and in between these specific targeted body groups I do abs but have started adding cardio in on the ab days
    I usually do 5 sets of 12 of what ever I do if I can
    I try and shoot for 2 hours a day at the gym if I can
    I never try and lift to heavy but do try and increase a little at a time
    I’m not trying to be the Hulk
    I don’t want to hurt myself either

    Day 1. chest and back
    Day 2. Arms
    Day 3. Legs
    Day 4. Shoulders

    Abs and Cardio in between

    Well first and foremost: what is your goal now?

    In your first post, you said you lost 36lb in 3 months, which means the diet you've been following is somewhere around 1300-1400 calories BELOW your actual maintenance. That is a huge deficit of calories...

    Secondly, you didn't provide us with any breakdown of the amount of calories, fats, carbs, or protein you were eating; you just listed foods.

    It will be impossible for us to dissect every thing you've been eating or advise you without more of these details. Also, you didn't indicate that you WEIGHED any of your foods, so the accuracy of your food measurements is hard to trust 100%.


    Now, in terms of what to do now? Well again, it depends on your goal. You said in your original post that you want to 'get off' your diet... but what about it specifically? Are you saying you're done losing weight and you want to start focusing on performance/strength now? These details are important.

    Given you've been in a huge deficit for months, I don't think going into a surplus immediately is a good idea, but then again since you don't actually list your calories or macros, it's hard to give you a number or guidance there.

    Bottom-line: you should probably return to maintenance calories at least, but again without details on the NUMBERS and your goals, it's near impossible to advise you with what to do.
