On the diet note, how in the hell do people manage to eat less fat? My current macro ratio for the day is looking like 49% fat, 39% protein and 12% carbs (110g, 200g, and 63g respectively) and that's it for my daily cals. Obviously "lol don't eat 6 eggs in butter for breakfast fatboy" but I'm having trouble sticking to only one scoop of whey per day otherwise.
Heh, no worries. FWIW I was speaking about accessory movements - big lift progression is it's own area for sure, but for people stuck on the same weights/reps for other movements, going through a set range and then dropping reps once you up the weight and build back up again is pretty simple and dumb-proof. Also, I hate to be that guy but my default go-to template is one from John/charly's coach, so I think that counts...
And where are these fancy programs by elite coaches for competitive lifters that you speak of?
I cut on sub 20g of fat a day. To do this I pretty much only eat 0% fat yoghurt with oats or frozen berries, baked vegetables and 0 fat 0 sugar jello pistachio puddings. I don't really know how people eat meat and cut on very low fat.
