Question Maingaining at 10-12% bodyfat impossible?

The myth of not being able to gain muscle and lose fat has been debunked many times. It's been shown that bulking only increases the rate of muscle gain, but is not a requirement. My question is, if you're already at a low bodyfat, is it damn near impossible to recomp provided that you're a...

Is 2000 Calories a day a good benchmark?
