before t-mag i was going nowhere, after reading everything on here i went from 140 at 12% BF to 180 at 20% BF in 5 months. The BF % i determined/monitor every day with a bio-electrical-impedance scale. I gained all this weight by eating healthy BUT, eating everything in sight and lifting smart. Tons of meat/bread/veggies (no junk food at all) etc, deadlifts/squats etc…
My question is… i want to cut down, and get back to 12% bf which will get me around 160-165lbs. I’m doing all this for sports and carrying that 20lbs of extra fat around is starting to get to me (really affecting my performance).
if i stick to a smaller diet, and a diet that would have me eating every hour like i do now (cept it would be more fruit/veggies than bread/peanut butter and tuna :), can i still make alot of progress with my muscle gains?
my goal is 190 at 12 % BF, im 6’, I don’t use any suppliments except protein/flax.
I guess my question is, given a 5 month period, if i were to cut down to 165 at 12% BF, could i gain about 10-15lbs of muscle without really ‘bulking’ (instead i would just be trying to stay ‘anabolic’ by eating all of the time but way less and the stuff i would be eating would be more veggies/fruit instead of things like milk/bread/peanut butter etc).
replies would be very helpful, since bulking and eating everything in sight is all i know
