OK...well, I'm eating six meals a day and doing the WBB workout routine and overall and feeling pretty good. I don't get overly hungry unless I'm like a little late on one of my meals but it's not happening too often cuz I try to time it.

Now...is it a problem if I'm not getting my...3033 calories per day?

Actually, I just realized that that might (actually, it does) cut down on the amount of the macronutrients that I'm getting. But still, does it matter?

How many calories below are you talking about? And are you bulking or cutting?

Well, about 1000 calories behind. And to your second question...undecided because I do not know my bf%, lol. But hell, if I can build muscle and lose fat doing this, I'll do it! But sounds too good to be true.

1000 is too low for bulking or cutting. I'd say if you trying to drop a little fat while trying to gain a little muscle (I doubt you can make drastic gains with both at the same time) then I would eat about 250 cals less than that your BMR and trade in a protein for a few carbs, like a 45/35/20 ratio (P/C/F). But don't go changing anything your doing because of what I said, get some other opinions also, I'm not that knowledgable in this field (nor any).
