I think it's the leptin hormone at work???
    I’ve incorporated a cheat meal every Sunday.

    You are only 15 lbs away from your goal. Have a the discipline to set a goal and not give up until you make it. Giving up on a goal now will make it that much easier to give up on any goals you make in the future.

    When you reach 220, you're going to say it sucked getting there, but you'll know for certain that you have the ability to change your body as you see fit.

    Dieting is one of life's great mind fuks. Don't let it get to you. It's not supposed to be easy.
    Fwiw, 220 is a number I pulled out of my ass. At 285 I imagined that it would take dropping 65lbs to get my bf% down to an ok level and look halfway decent for summer. It was never meant to be set in stone.

    What you do from here, whether itís bailing on your diet or continuing on your journey, is up to you. You are close to your initial goal, though, and I am guessing that when you set it you had expectations of what that would mean from either an appearance or health perspective. If I were you, I would continue on that journey to see if those expectations come to fruition. You havenít hit your diet limit, but as many have said it might be time for trying something other than keto and fasting or giving yourself a pause.

    Just make sure it isnít your ďdiet brain ď speaking to you. The mind does funny things when you are running below maintenance calories. 220 is still within your grasp. Donít let it go because of discouragement. If you do, youíll always wonder what could have been and what you could have looked like.

    Just make sure it isn’t your “diet brain “ speaking to you. The mind does funny things when you are running below maintenance calories. 220 is still within your grasp.

    Perhaps you’re right. I am relatively happy with where I’m currently sitting in terms of bf%, but I set out to hit 220 and I should see that through. I don’t think I’m going to continue to use keto to get there though. I was thinking about this last night, for the first 60 days everything was fine. About 3 weeks ago i changed the timing of my workouts. I used to go at the end of the day, around 9pm. A few weeks ago I changed that to after work (around 5pm). At 5pm I was still fasting, so my workouts had absolutely no fuel. That being said, my workouts have been garbage since I started cutting but they’ve gotten worse.

    Im going to continue the path I set out but I’m going to take the advise said earlier and change the diet. Using the tdee calculator I’m going to go about 3500 calories, I just gotta figure the macros out (feel free to chime in!).

    And if if anyone wants to help out with the next goal after that, please do! 250, 15% bf, benching 405. I know for sure I want to cycle again, maybe blast and cruise for a while. I’ll be 41 in a week so I don’t even know if that’s realistic anymore.

    Well..awesome to hear...and the part of how you changed your training time is part of it. Sometimes we don’t see those things as we are mind set on what we’ve been doing for so long and might not think certain things will trip our bodies out..until it does!

    Im a 125 female so I wish I could help you with a diet lol ...but don’t think you could lift 50 lbs if you ate what I did..someone will help you...good luck!!!!

    DO FUUCKING WORK! STRENGTH FIRST BOSTON!
