i was thinking about starting to cut a little bit, I'm 6'1" and about 178 lbs also at about 11% BF. My problem is that I would like to gain more size but i'm sick of all my stubborn fat around my hips and stomach. I've gain weight in the past 3 months i've been bulking (clean) but have not lowered BF% or lost any stubborn fat around my hips or stomach at all. So i'm thinking about cutting and hoping to lose the fat i want to get rid of. If i am to keep lifting heavy and heavier, up my protein intake, lower my calorie intake and adding cardio can i still get bigger at all with that??

I'm told you wont get bigger, but you can still get stronger...i actually still noticed progress in strength gain when eating a 900 calorie deficit in calories(about 2000). I think you can make some small gains.
