Sorry, but I highly doubt you are putting on muscle, you are most definatly losing it.

Doing 1000cal of cardio will break down your muscles, combined that with a low protein low cal diet (what your doing) and all your muscle is just gonna waste away.

You need to be eating 1800 cal + a day if you wish to work off 1000 calories (how the heck can you do that anyway? thats 2hours of light jogging).

If your aim is muscle gain and fat loss your doing it the wrong way. I suggest you research this a little more, or go on a structured diet.

Iv been doing the kickboxing training which i burn around 1000 cals 3 days a week. I find sparring the most intense form of exercise i have done, ur always on the move and being hit and its hell fun and u loose track of time. When u include 15-20mins of skipping and push ups, sit ups, pull ups and jumping the workout never really goes below 900 calories even on slack days. Heart rate averages very high as well, around 155.

Also i do gym (300-400 cals avg) 4 days a week. So far iv gone up each week in weights and iv gained muscle quite freely up until this week. Thats on my pervious diet of around 800-1000 calories lol, so yeah have a look at my new revised diet (based on the caloriekng nutrition management Australia software)

hey :)

the changes your making to your diet are looking good, maybe try adding in a salad? greens are always good and so easy to chuck in a bowl with the chicken breast your already cooking, you only seem to be eating carrots and brocolli for your veg and you should be having 5 serves a day

Sounds like you really need to talk to a professional to see exactly what you need. Whatever anyone says here you have an answer to so maybe you should ask a qualified person so you believe their answer :mrgreen:
