Thanks for the reply.
That's kind of what I was thinking too from reading around. However, I was also under the impression that if you weren't that close to your genetic potential, it would be easier to maintain most of what you put on during a cycle?
I wouldn't necessarily be cutting during PCT, rather just dropping my calories closer to maintenance for the remainder of PCT to stop any more fat being put on. I'm just wondering that if I were to reduce my calories slightly below maintenance in a few weeks time, once the first four weeks of PCT ends, I could potentially drop a bit of fat leading up to my vacation.
I was eating around 2300-2400 calories before my cycle after finishing up a short cut.
Once I was on cycle I bumped them up quite a lot to around 3800-4200, and then I reduced it to 3600-3800 for the majority of cycle after I noticed too much fat gain. I did have a few weeks where I was eating 4000 calories but 3600-3800 would be the average.
Currently I'm eating around 3300-3400 calories which I think is just above my maintenance.
