I was going back through my head and trying to figure out what happened. I really started losing weight when I Zoned out; around August. I think I never became fat adapted and I was, now obvious, using muscle. While I am trying to put that muscle back on, is it possible to get fat adapted at the same time or should I leave until I am done with the gain?

I imagine fat adaption would require more metcon work to adapt too....and it will be easier to put on weight quicker with little to no metcon for now.

Metcon has been out since starting. I have gone up to 20 blocks with adding a 20g shakes immediately after the meal. (avg. 3 meals/d) Some with 1 cup milk, some without. I have to say. I can't stand milk. I feel all puckie. Let's see if those are enough calories. If not, I'm going to explode with all the damn eating.

I will check the BF% in 2 weeks which will end the first hyper cycle. Here's hoping for at least a trickle gain and stop of loss.

If Milk is tough...try 1/2 milk, 1/2 water to dilute it some. I'm not a huge fan of alot of milk but it does helps add the extra calories. Could try to sub in some coconut oil instead but that wont give you the extra protein that milk provides.

Hey Nick, I'm the exact same body size as you, and just switching over from CrossFit to CA WOD I've gone from 138 to 146 in 3 weeks. Haven't changed my diet at all, just the training switch

Andrew,

I just started the strength cycle and have gained 8 lbs so far. I'm checking this Sat. for the type. I have gotten soft but not nearly as much as I thought I would. I'm keeping the carbs low and adjusting the fat as needed.

The strength cycle is kicking my ass. I am very tired. Oh well...

Keep posting your numbers here.
