Have you tried intermittent fasting and calorie/carb cycling? I've had great success with it.

Looking good thought. Don't stress too hard.

I did IT for a week then just went back to eating normally. I should try calorie/ carb cycling though. Right now my macros are 50/30/20 (c:p:f) I eat about 1200 calories

I like to eat from 12PM to 6PM each day and fast the rest of the time. I am ripped and I have found this allows me to eat more and still stay lean.

I don't carb cycle but I drop my kcal on my off days to 2,500-2,700. I eat about 3,000-3,250 on lift days. I also train fasted 75% of the time.

All of these methods have helped me get/stay super lean and retain A LOT of strength.

sweet i'm gonna give IT another shot. I got my bodyfat% measured last month, it said 18%, now i know it can be off by like 3%, so i'm roughly about 20% i would say, my goal is to be at around 16 or 17.

The thing with IF is it takes a week or two to adjust to it. But there are real world health benefits to it, as well as the fact it can really help with body fat %s. I'm a little guy and even my metabolism, medical circumstances, and exercise schedule does not account for the amount of food I eat while staying lean.

Stick with it pal. (:

CY, how do you take in ~3000 calories in 6 hours? That's pretty hefty going on paper.

It's easy. I split it up into two big meals.

Pre-Break Fast: 10-11AM
Protein Shake 175

1:
1lb sweet potatoes or yams w/ 28g flaxseed and 12g coconut oil 700
3.5 cups split pea stew w/ nutritional yeast and veggies 650

2:
Protein shake 175
2 TBSP Peanut butter, almond butter, or trail mix 200
3.5 cups split pea stew w/ nutritional yeast and veggies 650
Tofu w/ 1/2lb veggies, bean sprouts, garlic, etc. 400

Usually on lift days I throw in a clif bar, or a coconut bar, or some more trail mix with coffee for a treat with coffee for 3,300ish. On off days I don't do an extra snack, and I shave off 300-400kcal for 2,600-2,700kcal.
