Hello guys, i need some advice.
I recently dropped from 104 kg to 90 kg, eating 1500 kcal a day and training really hard. The thing is that if eat 1 more calorie, i start to gain fat. When i bulk, it doesn't matter if it is super clean, i always gain fat, and when i cut, i get back to 90 kg.
So i have two problems here : i have to eat a very low calorie diet just to maintain my 91 kg and can't eat any more calories without adding fat.
When i say i train hard, i mean 5 times a week,focusing on squats and deadlifts, with a max deadlift of 573 pounds, with some exercises consisting of 3 sets of 5 reps with 530 pounds, or upper back days with 16 sets of pull ups (wide grip, closed grip, reversed grip, etc..) with body weight or 10 kg attached...so it is pretty heavy training with only 1500 kcal a day. i don't feel weak nor use any kind of steroids.
I eat 2 grams of protein per kg of bodyweight, and only very "clean" carbs like oats. Todays is a non training day so all i'm getting is 1089 kcal (i have everything written down)
what's your advice to pack a little more muscle without adding fat, since it seems i can't eat more and i'm going as heavy as i can? I'm 33 years old.
Thank you very much.
