    One possible compromise may be to do a slow recomp, just losing very slowly to the point of almost not noticing you are in a deficit. I am currently doing that as I struggle with maintaining anything...

    If you don't want to cut you can focus on muscle growth, but I don't think it's necessary to overfeed at your size. You could probably progress on maintenance calories as well.

    It's just a...

    I would either reduce my deficit - losing for instance 1 kg a month or even less instead of 2 - and try to "recomp" a bit, and then when you stall (or start feeling too small) switch to a mass gain...
  • Sticky: But you may not reach that point at that weight,...

    But you may not reach that point at that weight, it depends on several factors, e.g. how your lifts are progressing - that's why I asked about that. You seem to be cutting very fast, with a training...

    You have definitely improved in terms of body composition, but you may not reach your end goal in a single cut. This is very common.

    Lifting as much as 6 times a week, particularly on a cut, seems...

    I don't think it's ever a good idea to consciously stay overweight unless you are a powerlifter or doing some other sport that requires a higher BF for optimal performance. OP may find it harder to...

    Cut. You don't want to get stuck in a bulk forever, which is what you are risking now.

    You can probably gain strength and muscle in a cut as well as long as you stay consistent and don't cut too...

    I would have guessed about 19% now coming down from 25%+ in the "before" pic. But I would add that I would personally trust Adam more than me on this. It is generally a good thing to try to go by the...

    I second this. When your tracking is off you may as well drop calories a lot, to be sure to hit an actual deficit. Just make sure you get enough protein and dietary fat.

    Stop with the cheat meals.

    I am wondering if you may have been eating too little dietary fat, which can make it really hard to function. I have some personal experience with this, at one point last year I started eating a lot...

    I wouldn't waste my money on a nutritionist if I were you.

    You are right and the people telling you to eat more are wrong. What can sometimes happen is that you can retain water and eating more...

    I certainly agree with you, there are exceptions. My father is one. He has bigger biceps and forearms than most gymgoers, to the point that random people would sometimes comment on it. To add to this...

    I don't have any data here so this is going to be purely anecdotal, but my worry is that for every 10 guys that decide to "bulk", 9 end up taking it too far and even getting stuck in the bulk. I...

    Thanks for sharing your story. Christ, this is scary stuff. I am glad you have improved in terms of recovery.

    Makes me wonder where to draw the line and say to yourself "enough" during a cut. Have definitely noticed myself that body image issues are getting worse the more fat I lose. In a way I was happier...
