I just finished a cutting cycle . . . Went from 3900 cals. daily down to 2200 cals. daily. (lost 25 lbs. about 6 lbs. of muscle based upon b/f measurements)
Well, I'm on the bulking side again. (but try'in to gain less fat this time)
I've increased from the 2200 cals. daily all the way back upto 3000 cals. daily and I haven't gained a pound, nor inches, all my measurements remain the same. (especially the waist, I lost 4 inches, which is fine with me)
The only thing different I did on the bulking cycle was keep my carbs. low (25%) and raise my fats (50%). (the opposite of my last bulking cycle) Protein is 1g/1lb. (25%)
Shouldn't the increase in calories have caused me to gain something ? Even if it was some fat ?
Comments are welcomed. (even bad ones)
