I’m 25 and trying to get lean, obviously without losing too much muscle mass. As of now, I am 201 lbs and around 16-17% body fat. I tried bulking up a few months ago but thatstopped after a bout of back spasms acted up and sidelined me until a week or so ago. I didn’t enjoy bulking up but a lot of people told me that I should do it to add more muscle before I lean out. Anyway, I think i’ve held onto a good amount of the muscle and would like to get lean.
I have some years experience in the gym, but I definitely lack confidence in my diet. I eat clean but I’m not sure about how many calories I should be eating to lean out without losing muscle. Right now I’m consuming around 2700 calories a day (very low carb, mostly healthy fats and protein), eating 5-6 meals a day, and pretty clean.
Basically I need someone to tell me how many calories I should eat so I have confidence in sticking to that diet for an extended period of time, and if the Anabolic diet is right for me. At the end I would like to be the same weight but around 10-11% bodyfat. Help would be greatly appreciated.
