Five months ago, I was 195 lbs of hostess cupcake. Two months ago I was 150 lbs. For the next month I ate about 1600 calories and worked out moderately. The result was that I stayed 150 but melted additional fat off my stomache. For the last month, I've eaten 1950 calories and worked out seriously - but nothing has changed.

Now I have a small bit of flab still at the bottom of my tummy. I decided tonight while doing military press that I either need to crap or get off the pot: Cut my calories back again and cut for a while, or finally start my much anticipated bulking and figure the tummy will get taken care of later.

Whatever I need to do, I want to get rid of this stubborn bit of flab still on my tummy AND I want to start bulking, or do the former quickly and then get to the latter.

What should I do?

First, let me give you my pics:

Questor dude.. you are lean..
Any mass you put on will lean you out even more..
however, that will be hard at 1600-2000 cals..

There are a number of changes I would make to your program.. but to make it simple, I would suggest that you look at the WBB and BGB programs (link in my sig)..

Good luck.. lift hard, eat right and rest enough..

I agree, you need to bulk.

I also agree, that WBB routines or BGB would be much better.

I also think you should bulk. Good luck.

That's assuming he gains weight with a fat percentage that is less than his current bf%. Possible at first, but don't bank on it for long.
