Can't post my pictures here as I am new to the site and haven't made enough forum posts yet. But feel free to check out my profile where you can see my before and after pictures. I talk a bit about my progress and my training over the past two months in my About Me section.
So I tore my ACL and part of my Meniscus in Augustand after surgery I lost about 15 lbs. The first Picture is where I am now, the second picture is where I was about 2 years ago, and the 3rd picture is where I was about 3 months before my injury. I know all the angles and lighting are different so don't hate.
I'm back up to about 171, my biggest I was at 175 but my right leg is still needing work. 2 years ago I was only at 155 so 20lbs or so of progress!

I was a little lenient on the bulk, shooting for 2500-2800 calories. I cut at 1800-1900 calories. Im now bulking at 2500, trying to be a little more strict this time. I might have to get closer to 2600, but I'm just monitoring right now. Trying to stay lean. I was just trying to get at least .8g/lb of Protein and a minimum 30g fat (usually a bit higher though), before. From there, I just let it fall as it needed to hit my total caloric daily goal. I wasn't anal about it. Now, since this current bulk, I'm shooting for closer to 1g/lb or above, just to see what it does for me. Something like 150P/260C/100F.
