Recently I decided that I need to cut. I took people's advice and just ate a lot of food for a while and was following ABBH for a couple of months. I know a couple of months is nothing but I am around 25% and it is pretty unhealthy me thinks. I feel as though getting rid of fat will drastically help gain muscle for a couple of reasons.
Number 1 because of my weight I can't do lifts like pull ups and other such useful things.
Number 2 I really feel like my cardio takes a huge hit from being overweight when I am doing lifts like squats and deadlifts. .
Number 3 I am just sick and tired of being fat and just lifting weights and eating has not helped me lose any of it. Mind you I was eating like crazy and I didn't seem to gain any fat either.
Anyways. I was thinking 2200kcal on days out of the gym, and 2500kcal on days that I go to the gym. I have been doing this for about 5 days now and my diet is nutrient dense foods only.
I am 6 feet tall and 210 pounds. On off days I have been doing about 1 hour of cardio before breakfast.
Please give opinions, and no wise cracks about laying off of the potato chips.. I don't eat them anyways.
