But my question is that as I am doing this and doing 10 min of 30 sec hiit recumbent bike then 30 sec rest. I went back into the gym today and felt like absolute poop. I was starving in the morning so I ate before my hiit. I wanted to see where my 5-3-1 numbers were at so I started to do squats, deadlifts etc and nearly died. I was beyond weak. I then tried to do my hiits but failed at that as well only getting in 5 min if that of hiit. My legs were so sore and now I am feeling bloated and just overall exhausted. I still have 300 calories to go but am thinking of just going to bed and not eating any more. Not sure what is going on here or what I should do. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Did you know turnips could help you shed belly fat?

At only 34 calories and 8 grams of carbohydrates per cup (vs. a potato’s 113 calories and 26 grams of carbohydrates), try making mashed turnips instead of mashed potatoes for a nutrient-dense, low-calorie alternative, suggests Maleeff.

Like a marathoner stretching before the big run, eating half a grapefruit before a meal can enhance your body’s fat-burning performance. A study published in the journal Metabolism found that this “warm-up” tactic can help whittle your middle—by up to an inch—in just six weeks! The scientists attribute the powerful effects to the grapefruits’ fat-zapping phytochemicals. The fruit can interact negatively with certain medications, so as long as you get the green-light from your M.D, plan to have half of a grapefruit before your morning meal and add a few segments your starter salads to reap the benefits.

For example, between breakfast and lunch, I could have a protein shake, or I could skip it and stay hungry waiting for lunch, and add more protein to my pre-workout shake.

And also do you have any thoughts on “recomping”, I’d rather just stay with an eating plan that always works for me than switching between bulking and cutting stages, again, I’m new to all of this so I have no experience to bring to the table, but as a newbie just seems more attractive to 2 both at the same time and “look good”? The whole year? Just let me know what you think, thanks!
