SLICE OF LIFE
Eat bread while staying in calorie deficit to earn a six-pack
1. Work out your daily calorie requirement for fat loss. This is around 27.5 per kilo of lean body mass, so 2,200 for an 80kg man.
2. You also need around 2g of protein per kilo (160g for an 80kg man) and 25% of calories should come from fat (60g).
3. The rest should come from carbs, which adds up to 380g (adjust this amount based on your fat loss results). Here’s a guide to how much bread that allows you…
¼ of a sourdough
¼ of a baguette
Slice of wholemeal toast
