it hasnt even been a week and youre still losing. Why do you wanna drop the calories? Not losing as quickly as you'd like?

Your current deficit is probably something like 400kcal. It should continue to yield slow yet reliable fat loss.

As oval said, only reason to drop further would be to encourage more rapid fat loss. So the question is only a matter of what your goals are.

About 1lbs a week is fine for me. There is no hurry, just want to get down to 10-12%. It was more that 10 days ago I did get under 90kg and right now still at 90.0. But yeah I guess looking at that 89.9 aint smart since it was an outlier.

Dropped to 2200 3 days ago, still not dropping weight... Maybe carbs are just not for me?

Maybe you should stop being a crazy person and thinking that you're going to get changes every 3 days. Go to the main site and watch the video/read article titled of BMI and Weighing Frequency.

And stop being a crazy person.

Oh yeah did read that stuff man. My post about last 3 days was silly indeed. That said fact is that over last month I didnt drop weight or fat. Fat last saturday was 16,5% again. Will stick with 2200 for 3 weeks now and see what happens. Thanks man

so you dropped your calories by 100kcal, because looking at your log above you were eating 2300. Is that right?

Gacheru 07-22-2014 08:12 AM

Yes that is correct. Will keep this for 3 weeks minimum.

Edit: oh well, maybe 2 weeks hehe.

dropping calories by 100 isnt going to make a huge difference over the course of a week. That would be a 700 calorie deficit which wont even equal 1/4 lb a week.
