Stop being a pig. 46yr old, 185cm. Naturally big build. Can go the gym and get muscle gain without trying so I’ve chosen the wrong sport BMR 2400, so plenty to work with.
But seriously, I have tried everything and I’m close to my wits end. But on the other hand I’m down 20kgs from a bad time in my life, so there’s that.
Matt Fitzgerald’s Endurance diet book was great for eating the right foods, I saw such a massive gain in performance and a change in body shape that looks leaner, but I actually gained switching to that way of eating.
At the end of the day it’s calories in vs calories out and I try need to find the balance between fuelling workouts and creating a deficit. Going into off season literally this week so I’m going to try a lot of zone 2 style work with the focus specifically on creating a calorie deficit and not chasing performance.
That’s a really bitter pill to swallow when I’ve got an FTP of 260 and I really want that 300w. I’m a data driven person.
