Hello. I’m confused by what has been happening with me. I was gaining very slowly for the last 4 months by eating about 2800 cals a day.
I did not like how much fat I gained though, so I cut the calories back by 100-200 a day for the last month and also ate less fat and carbs…mostly just protein. However, I find that even though my weight has stayed constant (my lifting has stayed the same too) I have gotten even MORE fat. This is confusing me.
Why would cutting back calories cause more fat gain? Has anyone experienced anything like this? Can eating too little fat cause fat gain? Ive been in the area of 30-50 g. fat and 170 g, carbs per day, the rest protein.
Does anyone have any ideas for what I should do to stop this fat gain? I still want to add lean mass.
