I’m posting this in the beginner section because, even though I thought I had things figured out, apparently I don’t.
I’ve not lost any body fat this whole month of Jan.
Squat: 415 lbs
Deadlift: 405 lbs
Bench: 250 lbs
in 2010 from July-Dec I put on 22lbs of muscle but also 18lbs of fat. I’m a hell of a lot stronger now but I have a gut to go with. (Nov, Dec was full of hot buttered rum) When eating clean my maintenance diet was 4000 calories, growth was 4250. Now that I’m cutting up I’ve lowered my cals to 2500ish.
I lift heavy 3 times/week and run 4 times/week. I don’t feel any of the lethargy typically associated with a drastic cut in cals (I’ve felt that before), in fact I feel great. I consume under 50g carbs on non lifting days and 100-200g pre-workout on lifting days.
I feel like I’m doing everything right but the fat isn’t budging. Can you help me troubleshoot? What the hell am I doing wrong?
