    The diet app is a good one so long as you keep with the structure.

    I will take the opportunity to ask Robert; What proportions of carbohydrates/proteins should a good weight gainer have? I was considering buying some.

    Typically a 1:2 ratio is pretty good. So 50 g protein and 100 g carbohydrate of 60/120 is usually the ballpark that I have seen in the past.

    I guess I was a little overzealous when I thought I could keep adding to my lifts while in a caloric deficit. This week, and specifically today, it finally caught up with me and I hit a wall on my intensity day.

    This fat loss diet is lasting 4 more weeks. After that I will go into maintenance for 2-4 weeks and then back into a bulking phase.

    How do you typically approach adjusting programming while in a fat loss phase?

    Iím running Texas Method and it isnít really a program designed to work in a caloric deficit.

    Get off TM and adjust your intensity down to a level that you can complete then work back up from that. A 4 day HLM style split should work.
