I'm 48 yrs old. 5'10", 194lbs. not sure BF%, probably 18-20ish. been trying all sorts of combinations to lean out, get down to 180ish before ski season. I workout 6 days a week doing various things in the gym- lift/cardo/plyo, etc.. just recently started a focused "cutting" routine of lift 4x/wk, cardio early morning 5 or 6 times/wk. cardio is roughly 500 cal per day at 65-75% of max HR. 1 or 2 HIIT cardio wkouts per week. diet is about 1850-2k calories, 50/30/20. all clean stuff- protein powder, chicken/brown rice(only early in the day), chickn or fish w/green veg, apple + almonds, chicken/fish + green veg for dinner. no extra fats or sugars.. in approx 2wks i'm down maybe 1 lb. i train hard, don't lift heavy enough to put muscle on enough where that would offset my weight(not fat) loss.. on paper my caloric deficit says i should be much lower. Any input? trainers at my gym don't seem to have a clue. i think my metabolism is average, might have something to do with my age? HEEELLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLPPPPPPPPPP????????????? ?????????????
