it took another week, but i finally regained most of my strength after having the flu. kept my calories above 2400 to try and speed up that recovery. bodyweight rebounded a little back to 202, and now its hovering around 200. for the rest of this month i'm dropping calories to 2300. hopefully that will put me on track to lose about 1 lb a month. my plan this round is to slowly drop calories over time. next month i'll probably drop it down to 2200 calories, etc... with 2000 being the lowest i would go. another option is to add in some extra cardio along the way. nutritionally, i'm targeting 20 to 25% good fats, 250 grams of protein, and the rest as carbs. there is some variation here, because i'm also modifying calorie levels based on the intensity of the workout. so i'll get extra calories (mostly carbs) on heavy days, and less calories (less carbs) on light days and days off. this has the added benefit of forcing me to vary what i'm eating from day to day.
