    Food seems just right, chk my food journal for reference, btw, i just take whey maybe 4x a week, just in case i dont hit the macros, 5kg in 4 months is not bad....btw ne careful of overtraining..

    diet looks good to me. maybe you're just on a plateau.

    Maybe youre over training, spending too much time sa gym, lack of sleep?

    There is a saying, stimulate not annihilate...75mins is enough for most people..whats you total calories for the day? Sama mo na macros

    To add, the body releases cortisol about 45mins. after exercise. What this does is breakdown muscle to turn it into energy. The body developed this because in caveman days, if you're still doing something strenuous after 45mins. it's likely something life threatening. So losing muscle was not so bad compared to being dead. Nowadays you can't just tell your body not to do it. So best advice is keep workouts short.

    Studies have shown however that consuming quickly absorbed carbs and protein prevents the body from releasing cortisol. Since there is now a source of energy from the carbs, the body doesn't need to break down muscle.

  • I think sir, you're not hitting your macros well enough, base sa mga pagkain na nabanggit mo tingin ko its about right but you might want to increase your fat intake (flaxseed oil, evoo) aswell as your carbs.

    We weren't telling you to do it faster, rather you're likely doing too many exercises. Here's an article you might want to read.
