    Read this:

    Your cals seem kind of high for weight loss. Would think you would need to be more in 2000-2500 range to lose weight.

    That's excessive. Is it because of thirst?

    Actually now I get it - you're doing Shortcut to Size by Jim Stoppani. It's really more of a recomp or slight bulk program.

    Recomp is basically losing fat while gaining muscle at the same time. It's typically a slower process which explains why you're not seeing much results, but can be effective for noobies without much muscle mass.

    That program will basically help you put on muscle moreso than it will help you lose fat, hence the name Shortcut to Size.

    Around here cutting and bulking is more common. You go on a cut to lose fat and then bulk to gain muscle. Or vice versa. You can repeat as many times as you like until you get to the desired result.
