Just got my body fat pincher today, and I have 24.9% body fat!

I started bulking at 182.5 with 4000 calories a day. Did that for almost two weeks until I noticed I was gaining too fast. I'm now doing 3000/day and weigh 190. I know I'm bulking but this is just disgusting, almost 25% body fat, yuck. So I'm thinking moving down to my maintenence level until I'm around 16% then go on bulking again, any other ideas on how to get this off of me?

25% is definitely cutting time. The more bf% you lose, the longer you can bulk.

After my very first bulk, I was 190 @ 19%. It took me 4-5 months, and I was down to 9%

Saint Pat....how much did you weigh at 9%. I am 5'8'' and 184 at 14% and was wanting to cut down to about 7-8%. Just wondering if you looked good.

By the end of my first cut, I was 165lbs.


Any before and after pics Pat?

Here's some after pics:

I've looked into PSMF but I don't think it's going to work for me since I can't see myself on low low carbs. Should I just lower my calories to say, 2000 and work cardio into my WBB #1 routine? My main goal now is fat loss, but I'd like to minimize my muscle/strength loss.

Brian - try dropping your cals to 2200 and see if you lose any weight after a few weeks. If you're losing too quickly, increase cals, if you're not losing anything, lower it a little more.

I suggest you check out my cutting guide:

Ok, rethinking. My real concern with going no/low carbs is school. I have two midterms coming up and finals less than a month away. Would I see better results if I did no/low carbs over the weekend then had a strick low calorie refeed during the week? This is bad guys, I'm starting to notice how fat my ass is now.
