problems please help
Alright heres my problem. I started my cut up diet like 2 months ago, i was at 18 percent BF i have a busy schedual so i could ony do cardio 2 a week i got down to 6-8 percednt and was ripped more ripped than i had ever been then i just crashed, i went into to gym and couldnt pick up anything so i took a week off and did cardio only, now im back in action this is my second week back from the break and im holding water and im not as ripped i know this is normal i also maintained the diet durning the break, i still have abbs in the morning but there not ripped like they were... Did i hit my peak ?? i know i cant stay ripped year round but what do i do to get it back how do i schock my self ? i have heard that i should eat more or maybe i should add more poly and mono fats to the diet ?? my diet is exactlly the cutty sticky but lower carb i have plenty of energy when lifting but my heart does suck when i do cardio it takes forever to get up the 130 bpm range....Thanks guys please help. i have also been told to stop doing cardio and give my respitory system a break for 1 week then hit the cardio again and that might help ?

I would say have a nice cheat day to kickstart your metabolism again then hit the gym hard. I think it was wise of you to take some time off. I would also recommend to drink at least 1.5 galons of water/day. This will ensure you do not hold excess water.
Good luck....oh yeah and congrats on dropping down the bodyfat bro, that is admirable.

loose the fish oil caps and buy some flax oil or fish oil. The liquid is a much better souce of fat than the caps and you do not have to consume as much.
