I’m well – thanks for asking!
It will be normal to feel a loss of strength if you have reduced your calorie intake? To still obtain gains it is important to keep your protein intake at around 2-3g protein per kilogram of body weight and fill in the rest of the calories with your 20% fat and low GI carbs – keep the calorie intake just below what balance point is – see how it goes – if no joy then just increase it over.
You are in great shape! Wow! And doing great in terms of strength – you are very hard on yourself, but don’t worry since you will not be compromising your efforts by following the above mentioned principles – and yes keep it to 3 meals per day, and add a post-training liquid meal as well – all part of the mentioned calorie balance.
Good luck and let me know how you go.
