Sorry I totally missed this last reply. Is there a way to make the forum email you when people reply to your post?
I'm cycling calories per the Leangains protocol. You can check out leangains.com and/or rippedbody.jp if you're not familiar with it. The basic idea is you eat over maintenance on training days to feed the muscle you just annihilated and then you burn fat on the days you're resting by eating below maintenance. Add to this the fact that you are fasting 16 hours a day for fat burn.
My latest update with everything is here if anyone cares to read/advise:viewtopic.php?f=46&t=27949
