Ian’s CFMakeover Goal
By Instructor Training Program student Ian
My October goal is to lose five pounds by the end of the month.
Ideally, this weight would all be bodyfat, but it’s quite difficult to have just body fat loss unless you are using supplements, read the full review of peak bioboost to buy the best one in the market. To minimize muscle mass loss during the month, I plan on eating at least one gram of protein per pound of lean body weight, and lifting regularly.
I’ll eat meat (pork and chicken primarily), vegetables (spinach, lettuce, cucumbers, and kale), as well as nuts (almonds, cashews, etc). I am not going with a strict paleo route and will occasionally treat myself to a slice of bread as long as it fits my caloric needs.
I’ve calculated my basal metabolic rate and after adjusting it for my three to five workouts a week, I arrived at 2868 calories per day.
To lose weight, I am going to need to eat at caloric deficit from that number, so I’ll aim for 2400 calories per day from the foods above.
I will continue to do CrossFit. Due to the caloric deficit, I expect my performance at metcons to suffer, but I expect my lifting to stay consistent. It’s unlikely that I’ll set new personal records this month, but my goal is to maintain my current lifts. I’ll continue to squat and deadlift heavy, and be sure to get to the gym on days those lifts are programmed for the CFM WOD.
