Your bodyfat scale is inaccurate (they all are). I highly doubt you lost 20lb of muscle on 2300 cals/day and 250g of cardio, with a rate of loss at 1.5lb/week. I assume you lifted heavy stuff during the cut?

But if you want to add mass back, small surplus, lift heavy stuff, adjust as you go

The most likely answer is that you didn't lose 20 pounds of muscle. You lost fat.

Stop relying on that scale and stop playing the victim. You did this to yourself by letting your bodyfat get over 20%. Get the job over with, get down to 10% and then bulk.

You probably look tiny because you still aren't lean enough to have any definition. Definition and proportion creates the illusion of size.

Edit: Pic shows a lot of definition. You're crazy if you think you're tiny.

I have a bodyfat scale. It has told me I am in single digits when I have a belly and no visible definition, and it has told me I am over 20% when I am quite lean and am closer to the 10-12% range. They are garbage.

Bro, you can't lose any mussels when eating 250 grams of cardio a day. derp.

Honestly, from those pics, I'd say pretty successful cut. Ignore the BIA device!

You did not lose any muscle between your 2 pics. So many people seem to be unable to tell the difference between lean muscle and muscle surrounded by fat.

Good work dude, really successful cut, honestly looks like you maintained most of your muscle, the fat just made you look bigger.

On a cut you feel smaller but end up looking bigger if you cut correctly.

Your cutting pics looks good. Some solid mass and definition

I think the cut came out well. Was this your first attempt?

My advice is to build on what you have learnt.

Next bulking up phase try to get up to 20lbs heavier then strip...

You'll look great..
Trial and error is the only way

if u measure every single body parts and re-measure them after losing the weight, you can know what u lost is actually fat.

Agree with everyone else. This is a strong cut and you've barely lost, if any, mass. Plus you're still bigger than people who don't lift so don't be so harsh on yourself
