    Weight Loss Stack

    June 30, 2018, 2:35 am

    Hi Scott,

     

    Was wondering if you could take a look at the stack I'm currently thinking about getting. 

    Currently my calories are:

    Rest:1900

    Movement: 2600

     

    And my macros are:

    Protein:258g

    Carbs:160g

    Fats: 100g

     

    My goal is to lose as much fat as possible. The suppliments I was thinking about were:

    R3build Edge

    CLA softgel tablets

    Omega 3 softgel tablets

    Diet Impact Whey Protein

    L-Carnitine tablets.

     

    Any help would be appreciated:) 

     

    Thanks!

    @davidjames951 I don't really see a problem with your stack if you have the money for it, then go for it! Some good options there and you avoided straight fat burners which is good to see.

     

    The main thing is your diet - if you're burning 2600 calories on workout days, you need to lower your macros. Because at the moment you're getting 2580 calories with your macros.. which means you aren't in a deficit at all. You want to be in a 250-500 calorie deficit to lose fat.

     

    Probably take the carbs back to 150g, which isn't a big difference, but will cut some calories. What's your body weight and body fat percentage?

    Hi Scott,

     

    Personally I try to avoid straight fat burners and go with more natural products. Especially because of what could be in them.

     

    The calories are after I have subtracted 500 from each total. Previously it was around 2400 for rest and 3100 for motion. Is there anything you think I should change?

     

    On days where i am not in the gym, I am currently on

    Protein:218g

    Fat:66g

    Carbs: 110g

     

    Do you think the carbs are too high on workout days?

     

    I only have a fat calliper and I use an online calculator, which says I'm around 38%BF and I'm 260 pounds.

     

     

     Also, do you think theres anything that i need to cut out of the stack to save some cash or do you think its all necessary?

     

    Thank you for your help Scott!

    Oh I see. In that case your macros are fine then.

     

    Having 160g of carbs on workout days is OK when cutting, it's not too high - as long as you can see weight loss at that number. If/when you hit a plateau, you would probably look at lowering them first to cut back on calories. But to start with that's definitely OK.

     

    So you're on about 1900 on off days? Seems a little low, even for an off day. You probably only need to be 300-500 or so calories less than what you're getting during your workout days. So around 2100-2300 might be a better target for starters - that way it gives you room to reduce the calories down to say 1800-1900 later on.

     

    If you hit a plateau and you were already on 1900 calories on off day, you would probably want to go back to 1700 or less, which isn't ideal. Eat as much as you can while losing weight, and make changes when you don't see progress with your fat loss.

     

    With the supplements.. honestly, you could probably do without the CLA and L-Carnitine. If you have the money, and want them, there's nothing stopping you. But the effect they'll have on your fat loss as a whole will be pretty small.

     

    The protein is good if you need extra protein in your diet, and the Omega 3s are good if you're not getting enough Omega 3s from your diet as well. That would be why you take those, rather than for fat loss. Then the R3BUILD Edge is again, something where if you have the money, it will be good in terms of recovery.
