I gained 6lbs since I quit my cardio in one months time. But mine was due to some LBM - cuz I was lifting heavy when while I cut it out [img]/forum/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img] I will know for sure when I take my caliper test on March 20th.
I am now up to 1800 calories:
Meal 1: 35P, 25C, 12F
Meal 2: 35P, 5C, 12F
Meal 3: 35P, 25C, 12F
Meal 4: 35P, 5C, 12F
Meal 5: 35P, 10C, 12F
My point, drop the cardio and regulate your metabolism. Then you can tweak it as you go and add cardio later when you start making the gains [img]/forum/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]
I was doing HIIT 3-4x a week for 40 minute sessions for 5months. Then I came here and got informed on diet and cardio. Trust me - I went NOWHERE and hindered all my gains by doing cardio before lifting (learned 4 months later s/b doing it "after" lifting) I just started doing
1 HIIT 30min and another cardio like swimming (legs only/backstroke 6 laps) or Lifecycle 9500/Level 11 for 30 min. session.
I am glad I did this (I was nervous during the whole ordeal! ask Krypto
because my body composition is totally changing now [img]/forum/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]
