I’ve been through 2-3 cuts over the last few years, each following the same sort of template - around 2500 cals (I weigh about 170, 10.5% BF at last measurement), using a proven fat burner and utilising around 5 days total training a week of alternate days of sprints and weights. Whereas each of the last cuts I’ve lost steadily around a lb a week (total 10-15 lbs), these first few weeks I’ve gained a total of 2 lbs. Nothing has changed diet/training wise. I feel like I’m slowly getting a little leaner, but it’s really hard to tell and then to believe it when the scales are saying the opposite… what’s going on?!!
Diet is pretty standard, like I said successful in past. Aim for 200-225g protein day, keep carbs around workouts and in the mornings, eat every 2-3 hours. Plenty of water, veggies.
