    Exclamation Am I Cutting "Properly"? [New To training and nutrition]

    Height: 5'4"
    Weight: 135
    Cut Macros: 1813 calories, 213g Carbs, 113g protein, 57g fat (according to IIFYM.com)
    Lifting 5-6x a week, HIIT 3-4x a week
    GW: 125-7 in 2 months or so

    ~I've started committing to weight training for a little over a month, have been 'cutting' for over a month, yet I have gained weight, feel slightly sluggish and not as "light" as I did when I did exclusively cardio (running in my park, 22% incline)

    Additionally, I am feeling so full eating 1813 cal. a day and sometimes my body seems to reject the idea of "more food, again"

    Should I just adjust my macros a few notches down at the same ratio, or should I stick with this cut plan despite the side effects listed above. Also, should I implement more cardio into my routine?

    Read the stickies, stick to your protein and fat minimum, take the calories down to 1500, do not implement more cardio if you are doing HIIT 3-4x/week, and see what happens. You are not eating at a deficit if you feel full and are gaining weight. Could you post everything you eat/drink in a typical day? You may be miscounting your calories.
