Alright I admit it, I am **** at cutting. I used to merely throw in tons of cardio and drop the weight, however I am tired of being anorexically thin and I want to maintain as much muscle on this cut as possible via nutrition. My story goes like this, I was on a keo diet for an extended period of time, 3-4 months while "maintaining" until about August when I began to reencorperate carbs (oatmeal, legumes) back in to my diet. I definetly gained alot more muscle, and I have seen the light, however I am finding a bit more difficulty in terms of getting rid of the small gut I have aquired and tightening up. I have been keeping my carbs confined to my pre/post workout period, and I am beginning to see results, however I feel I need help in order to drop the nagging bodyfat. I am listing my stats as well as a diet I have been constantly following so far. To drop the fat should I go keto again, carb cycle perhaps? Any constructive suggestions welcome, though please dont flame my post.
