    Diets been better but weight has stayed the same.

    this pass sunday i got a scale that reads body weight, body water, BMI, muscle mass, and body fat. i also order some calipers and they both are giving me about the same reading of body fat (about .2% difference). for the last 3 weeks ive been preping my meal for the week (6 days the 7th day is a cheat day which is just a low calorie day since im really busy that day) and my body fat isnt dropping.

    i had a problem with bloat but i added a digestive enzyme and everythings good now as far as that goes. im taking a multi vitamin along with animal pack and fish oil. im also on arimidex now (.5mg EOD) since i started a tren /test cycle.

    my question for you all is should i keep eating my 5-6 meals throughout the day and just wait to see if the body fat start going down or should i change something. i dont count calories but again i prep my food and everything is weighed and measured out.

    the following is what my diet/training looks like monday-saturday:

    I drink a BANG by VPK almost every day and a gallon of water with 2 scoops of Bentacourt BCAAs. 1 scoop of Bentacourt Preworkout and a scoop of Carnitine on training days.

    Meal 1: 1 cup egg whites, 2 whole eggs, 2 packets of oatmeal or a whole wheat bagel

    Meal 2: 6 oz. chicken, 1 cup veggies, 1/2 cup of rice or 1/2 sweet potato

    Snack: Protein shake with 2 scoops of whey, 4-6oz of low fat milk, 1 cup of high protein yogurt (this could almost count as a meal)

    Meal 3: 4 oz. White fish, 1 cup veggies, 1/2 cup of rice or 1/2 sweet potato

    Snack: 1 cup of high protein yogurt

    Meal 4: Pre workout meal 4oz of ground beef or extra lean turkey with cottage cheese

    GYM TIME! 10-15 minutes of cardio (stair climber which a heart rate ranging 145-165) followed by an hour and a half of lifting (Heavy lift and a light lift i.e. Monday is chest and light back)

    Meal 5: Post workout 6-8 oz. of lean protein source (Fish, Chicken, or Turkey) with a whole sweet potato or 1 cup of rice and 1 cup of veggies.

    Meal 6: If im feeling hungry later then ill eat about a cup of cottage cheese as directed by another member.

    Again, this schedule is very strict. My girl and I cook about 30 meals every sunday.

    Ill post all the body water and so on so forth later when i weigh myself.

    Give it a couple more weeks and then adjust. If you haven't gained then you know that's your maintenance. If you adjust sooner then just bump another 500 calories Ed

    it's all about the food that they eat and how long you been doing this. It's a marathon not a 100 meter dash. It just takes time and the right genetics

    Take carbs out of the first meal. Move them to pre / post workout. Do HIIT upon awakening. those changes should help you move in the right direction.

    Thats odd that it sucked, most people function better on no carbs in the morning. increase the fat intake to 4 whole eggs and some shredded cheese on top.

    well since i was out of egg whites thats what i did. i had 4 whole eggs with a half ounce of cheese. i normally have that meal around 7 and i eat again between 9-10 depending how busy i am at work. would it be ok to get some carbs by then?
