    Yes, as long as you eventually cut you will probably end up in the same place. That's a big "if" in my opinion. I think people are mostly split into two types: those who are lean tend to stay lean,...

    I share this experience. For instance, if I eat a lot the day before my workout it has a far bigger impact than if I eat a lot before the workout on the workout day. Probably because glycogen stores...

    Any takeout, candy, cheat meals in the weekends?

    Is the 1450 calories the weekly/monthly average?

    MyFitnessPal isn't accurate, it contains many systematic biases. Go by the food labels (calories per 100 gram), or even better go by the maximum of what those two sources tell you. So if the food...

    Been there! I started at 235 lbs and thought I'd be 15% at 185 lbs, I am probably about 17% now at 176 lbs.

    I think we all tend to be a bit biased towards giving advice based on what worked for...

    I agree that with respect to total lean mass, it probably doesn't matter much in the long run what he chooses to do as long as diet and training is on point.

    That is precisely why I favor a cut...

    In to follow this, will be exciting to see where you end up. I think 170 lbs is a reasonable guess if you are going to aim for 12%, 180 lbs seems very unrealistic as you already hit 192 lbs just from...

    I think it's better to estimate your maintenance from your own data instead of online calculators. Online calculators can be used as a starting point, but your own individual data will provide a...

    Do a very slow recomp - eat in a small calorie deficit and get stronger over time. Not everyone can carry the bulking look well, and you are definitely one of those. I am the same.

    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.

    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...

    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...

    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...
