Hello, I was curious if you can address an issue that I am having while on Carb Nite Solution the past 12 weeks. I am 98 pounds. 4’10” and 43 years old, and I started at 28.9% body fat. I’ve been working out at least 4 days a week doing HIIT and strength training. I’ve been monitoring my nutrition on MFP and consuming 20 grams or less of carbs per day. Flash forward 12 weeks and my body fat went up to 29.1 and my lean muscle mass decreased from 72.7lbs to 67.4lbs. Why is this happening? This is so frustrating!
I would like to also hear about why this could be and what to do about it. I had the same problem and so I decided to buy carb backloading. I read it and have been trying that. I have been gaining muscle on it, but also fat, which I don’t want fat, I have a bikini competition coming in October! I realize I need to tinker with and customize more but I would love to hear a podcast talking about these things so I make sure to cover my bases with options and ideas to try. Thanks!
