So question, might interest the younger more vanity driven guys and gals out there..
We know that a combo of Low cortisol/Heavy Lifting/Light cardio/Kcal Restriction can get you lean
I am a paleo eater of 25 years old. Follow the above with a met con twice a week + Football (soccer) twice a week too, high standard 5aside for 40-60mins, no stroll...
Question is, my brother followed a strict STRICT kcal intake at uni as part of a goal to get absolutely shredded (hate the word but he was like, scary low bodyfat) (it eventually led to full on depression/gaunt/skinny look....over it now) He ate Oatmeal in the morning, all weighed and measured. Chicken and Broccoli with maybe some peppers in like that awful spray that is a sub for oil. Maybe a piece of Fish for tea. Drank like 10 cups of tea a day. Post workout shake and creatine. THATS IT.
Can this super low Bodyfat be reached with Paleo? What would you sub for oatmeal IF this morning 'slow release' energy boost is needed...(which I suspect not) I don't want to go down that route of being so lean I have no butt, twig legs and look like I am ill, but would like to reach the halfway point i guess and not fall down the rabbit hole. I am around 10-12% give or take now, love my coconut oil, my eggs, my bacon, my avocado....treat myself to some 99% Dark Choc and Almond butter now and again. Take my High epa
Pretty sure a lot of people will chime in on this and look forward to hearing some knowledge bombs dropped. Cheers guys
