I have been cutting for 3 months where I lost about 12lb and maintained what little strength I had.
Right now I am 130lb, 5,5 and I guess 15-20% BF?
My goal was to get as lean as possible then do a slow clean bulk back up to 145-150lb
I have lost a lot of motivation because people are telling me I got too skinny, even though I am still carrying a lot of fat that I hide well when wearing clothes.
I don’t want to get any skinnier but at the same time I don’t want to start bulking when I still have a lot of midsection fat.
I feel I will be very underweight by the time I lose all the fat in my midsection (120-125lb probably).
I am eating 1700-1800 calories on work-out days and 1600 on non-workout days.
I workout 4x a week, and HIIT 3x a week and I am probably losing about 1-1.5lb a week.
I tried eating at maintenance (2000-2100) calories for 6-8 weeks before but my weight just stayed the same and I didn’t lose any fat but I was getting slightly stronger.
Can someone please advise what to do, it has got to the point where I don’t even want to train anymore because I don’t know what to do!
