    critique my diet

    I just finished a one month bulk:

    2800 cals/80-100g fat/250-350g carb/200-260g pro

    gained two pounds in 30 days

    Starting to cut:

    2250 cals/80-90g fat/150-200g carb/200-230g pro

    My question is my maintance needs, I've gone over and over this and it seems that @12% fat and exercise level I am supposed to be at 2497 cal. main. and cut 2248 cals. Does that seem right for a 27 year old male that weighs 180lbs???

    Also, I am doing IF diet with a 16/8 fast/eat and then using IIFYM to include my goals during the eat time...can anyone offer advice or am I correctly approaching this just need to give it time???

    THANKS FOR ALL YOU HELP

    If you've gain two pounds over the course of 30 days while consuming ~2,800 calories, I would estimate your maintenance intake to be about 2,550 calories.

    That said, why bulk for one month (with a gain of only 2 pounds) only to cut the next month. It sounds like you'll be spinning your wheels.
