Been lifting for 3 years. Started super fat 280 pounds and got down to about 165. About 13-15% Body fat. From there I started powerlifting and eating heavy got to 230 about 16-20% body fat, cut to 215, about 14-16%. From here I bulked again (ik way to extreme) but got up to 260 at my heaviest was hitting awesome new PRs, I cut down to 230 about 15-17% Body fat. And no matter how hard I try I just cannot get under that 14% mark and have abs and good definition. Wondering if someone can give me some tips to change diet differently. Here’s what I have tried and what I am currently doing since I have been stuck at 230.
I’ve tried just eating low cal good set of macros I forget exact numbers but around 300ish carbs 260 protien and 60 fat 2600 calories, tried carb cycling at same calories no results. Now I’m about 3600 calories and feel great gaining strength and size but no body fat change in months. All my nutrition programs were done by professionals and followed to the exact. Never cheat on my diet. All these diets I’ve tried I’ve been to to nutritionist and professionals to have my diet figured out and no results I can’t see the problem. Training is 100% there. I power lift 6 days, for cardio I do conditioning such as yoke sled or tires. I’m drenched in sweat and exhausted at the end. I have vegetables every meal, lean protien, white rice or whole grain pasta as my carb sources. Cannot see where my issue is. Trying to find some outside advice
