    I am beyond confused on what I should do. Should I cut or bulk? (PICTURES INCLUDED)

    Age 28 male
    5'11"
    BMI: 25%

    I have never worked out or dieted ever in my life.

    I've got my workout plan but the dieting is confusing. My TDEE is about 2400 calories so I am going to increase to 2700 calories. How much carbohydrates/protein/fat do I need? Should I cut only first and not workout at all?

    Why did you create a new (different) account and post the same thing?

    Ok yeah you definitely need to cut fat, so you should place yourself in a caloric deficit (eating LESS than your TDEE).
    All it takes is consistency, effort, proper nutrition, good programming, and TIME.

    Should I not work muscle growth at all and focus on cardio?

    Go ahead and lift too, just don't worry if you aren't progressing much because you're in a calorie deficit. The answer is never to stop lifting. It will only help.

    You absolutely should be lifting weights. You can also do cardio, but if you had to choose only 1 of the 2, go with lifting. As a noob (never lifted) you should make strength/muscle gains even while cutting for a little while.

    You should ALWAYS lift, otherwise you will never improve your physique. Just dieting and doing cardio will turn you into a slightly smaller version of your current self, and will result in you just looking soft and undertrained (skinny fat).
    All it takes is consistency, effort, proper nutrition, good programming, and TIME.

    I’m going through this right now...

    Don’t even think about this too much and make it complicated. Spend your time researching nutrition and watching videos on correct form. Follow what the people with experience are telling you. I tried to make it complicated and I lost so much time.

    Do below - I’ve listed them in order of priority

    - Eat 500 calories below maintenance. Download MyFitnessPal. Track everything entering that mouth of yours. Read stickies on nutrition. Get 1g protien per pound of body weight. And some carbs and fat

    - Just choose a program with medium volume. E.g. Fierce 5 (I tried three programs, this is the best so far). Be sure to keep doing progressive overload and reset and deload as the program tells you

    - take daily or weekly pics. I take one pic a day from different angle when I weight myself every day (oh download Happy Scale if you have iPhone)

    - be patient. You will make gains even on deficit since you’re totally untrained

    - if your lifts start stalling, add 200 calories and keep lifting.

    - I’m about couple months seriously lifting and my body is starting to shape up
    **^^ Work hard AND more importantly, work smart ^^**
