Been dieting down. Down to about 8%. My body is laying down. I’m exhausted, sinus infection, zero motivation, joints hurt. Sore for 48-72 hours after a lift

I really wanted to get down to a true 6-7% for spring break.

I don’t know how you competitors do it. All I want to do is eat honey bunches of oats and sleep

Think I’m just gonna add 100g carbs ED and cut training sessions down to 3x week until I don’t feel like walking death.

Ya gotta be careful bro. This is your body’s way of telling you “whoa there slow it down a notch”. If you don’t listen to it, man, some bad shit can definitely start happening. Especially with the kidneys. And you don’t wanna fuck around with that. Trust me. I deff agree with you on adding some carbs to your diet. If you’re already at 8%, I’m sure ya look fkin yoked. If you aren’t training for a show, what’s the big drive to being sub 6%? Just curious, not tryna be a dick :)
What’s your age and stats?

Honestly man sometimes your body needs that! Unless you are two weeks out of a show theres no need to be feeling that way, and its actually most likely hurting you more than its helping you, especially if you have a job, are in school, and just have other responsibilities in life.

What is your general diet like right now and how much cardio, how many days do you train, and when was your last refeed?

I'd recommend having a huge meal one night or even take a day off and eat what you want before getting back to it. You could even benefit from adding the 100 carbs per day after a big refeed meal as well, I think you will benefit from giving your body a little break.

I'm not saying anything revolutionary but I look at it like a car..you can only run the gas down so much until you have to fill the tank back up and do it again.

Carbs very low.

Macros 330g protein, 75g carbs, 50g fat. 150g extra carbs on Saturday

203lbs. I’m an endo, no cardio, I’m a nurse. Work days lots of light activity on my feet.

Off days 1 hour sessions lifting.

Back/tris
Quads
Off
Chest/biceps
Hams+dead’s
Off
Repeat

Probably too low calories and my body is like fuck it I quit.

Thats low calorie but its ESPECIALLY low when your refeed only consists of 150 carbs! You definitely need more than that if you are going to go so low during the week. You can add food to your daily diet on top of adding a much larger refeed once per week or so..jmo.

Well said bro. I agree whole heartedly, especially your car analogy lol.
Your body can only do so much without proper rest and diet. Yup, definitely need to have a larger re feed meal. Get some healthy fats in that meal as well. I’m sure you know this being a nurse, but healthy fats really improve brain function.

Eat a real meal and do a cardio week, no resistance, sucks but you have to do it sometimes. Works for me when I'm beat up.....

overall your calories are way to low for just trying to lean out for spring break. try to add back some carbs even if its 25 grams around your workout for a few days and go up from there. add some healthy fats in throughout the day as well.

Yeah, 25g carbs ought to do the trick :rolleyes:

Go eat 2 burgers and a fry. Take the day off. Relax. Hydrate. Or...stop being a little....

Maybe be more Active so you can eat more, instead of the other way Around!

Calories are a very individual thing and to say someone's are too low or high without specific knowledge of them is generally wrong.

I'm eating almost exactly the same amount of calories as OP and growing at 220lbs. mytreefiddy has said he gets down to around 1,200 calories and comes into shows in the 190s. I'm the same way.

OP might actually need to lower his calories even more to get the body fat down. 330 grams of protein is way more than needed at this point.

As far as feeling like shit, they call it suffering to get in shape for a reason.

all i'm saying is that if he is working out 4-5 hours per week, doing no cardio and wants advice on why he cant recover and says he feels like death i would say adding some carbs in around training would be a good start, then go up from there depending how he feels. Obviously we dont know his entire scenario but he said he was doing this for spring break so...

I hear you but for spring break? lol this isn't for a show...I mean to each his own I'm not saying one personal goal is more important than another but to feel like "death on wheels" to look good at the beach I personally would say isn't worth it lol.

Also OP I bet you are going to look far better than the vast majority of guys you see on spring break whether or not you drop another 1-2% of body fat.
