The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    Maintaining on 4000cals...but look like crap

    So I am 290ish pounds, and I have been to see a nutritionist.
    He is a sports nutritionist and has worked with a powerlifter before.

    He cleaned up my diet a lot (I was eating pretty crappy for a while) and I ended up on ~4000 cals (3800-4000 depending on meat choices)

    The breakdown is:
    Carbs 43% - 424g
    Fat 34% - 147g
    Protein 23% - 214g

    I have been on this for 3 months...and have been back to see him (but he didnt really offer any advice).
    I am still 'fat' with a lot of flab around my midsection...and no where else.

    The scale has not change a single number over the 3 months...but I haven't really change appearance either

    I am a powerlifter and strongman and I train 4 times a week...but I dont even look like I work out (my first comp I was asked by the meet director if I have ever trained before, when I asked for a 660 opener on squats he pooped himself)

    Here is the diet he wrote out:

    1 cup of oats
    1 cup of skim milk
    2 tbsp of berries
    Pre training

    2 slices of heavy fruit loaf/cinnamon toast
    200g cottage cheese or ricotta
    40g whey+ 5g creatine

    200g low fat meat
    1 cup of rice
    2 cups of vegetables
    Afternoon tea

    200g yogurt
    10-15 almonds
    2 pieces of fruit

    200g lean meat
    2 cups of pasta
    2 cups of veggies
    1 tbsp of oil
    Before Bed

    200g of yoghurt or cottage cheese
    1 piece of fruit

    Does anyone have any advice?

    I have tried to clean it up even more and take out some of the carbs.
    This week I have started to eat whole foods only and steer clear of pasta and other starchy foods

    I would love to 'recomp' I guess and stay the same weight, but actually have notable muscle mass
