40 Year Old Recovering Fat Guy

Hi Coach,

I’m 42 and 242 at 6’2" down from a weak 340+ less than 3-4 years ago. I’ve made amazing gains using your 6 weeks to superhero protocol, but I’m struggling with eating enough (or guilt for eating too much) to build muscle versus cutting cals to win the battle of the bulge I face around my midsection, much of which I attribute to lose skin and resistant pockets of fat left from my unhealthy past.

I’m currently 23-25% bogyfat (according to my 30 buck scale), which seems to be localized around my gut. At any rate, what routine would you recommend I follow at the completion of 6 weeks to superhuman to continue to eliminate the resistant fat around my belly, while still building strength and muscle?

Thanks for everything.
