    change it bro, re-do the diet. Just like a workout you need to change a diet because your body adapts. Try some new rations of carbs/pro/fat.

    since April!!!!!!
    thats 4 months!!!!

    I update my diet every 2-4 weeks

    the macros seems off...that diet need adjustments

    to be honest with u..I didnt count macros and calories only protein , and when i did count the macros and calories...any changes i wanna do are wayy faster

    good luck!

    you diet needs work man

    you have protein only meals 2 actually

    you are getting fat from flax oil only

    you do not have ur calories measured

    and when i say re-arrange diet i mean when u lose/gain wieght obviously ur weight changes...so u need to re-adjust to the new weight

    good luck

    he's right. Your diet needs to be re-adjusted every so often because your body changes constantly. You may not make the same gains you did from a pervious diet now because of the adaptions your body has made.

    this is a list of fats to choose from.....dont go crazy with the fats stick to ur dietary needs


    The following nutrient-rich traditional fats have nourished healthy population groups for thousands of years:

    Butter
    Beef and lamb tallow
    Lard
    Chicken, goose and duck fat
    Coconut, palm and sesame oils
    Cold pressed olive oil
    Cold pressed flax oil
    Marine oils
    The following new-fangled fats can cause cancer, heart disease, immune system dysfunction, sterility, learning disabilities, growth problems and osteoporosis:

    All hydrogenated oils
    Soy, corn and safflower oils
    Cottonseed oil
    Canola oil
    All fats heated to very high temperatures in processing and frying

    -butter for saturated fats
    -lard

    drop it to 2400..if ur losing too much weight quickly(i highly doub it) or strength

    then up the cals a bit
