    I meal prep a lot to keep me on track. But it's hard (time consuming) to keep track of macros.

    What do you guys suggest I cut at? Calorie/macro wise? I'm 5'11" 170 and 15% but have jiggly love handles I want gone by summer......everytime I try to bulk (even a slow bulk) my waistline gets bigger. I'm thinking of IF'ing at 1,500-1,800 calories as this is what I did last summer and got close. Would like below 10% then can do a re-comp/slow bulk! Size to me doesnt matter, just want below 10%, toned and stay as strong as i am now!

    your body's natural estrogen(yes men have them too) is what keeps your love handles. IF at 1500 calories just sounds miserable, you will feel like crap, thats what most people do for contest prep and they looks awesome but on the inside they feel like shit. only thing that will help is to lift heavy on big muscle groups which is mainly legs then back then chest. in which release natural test and keep your body in a constant fat burning mode aka after burn, and another thing is cardio, rather than eating 500 less calories, burn 500 more calories doing cardio, usually good intensity (optimal heart rate range: 200-your age). the more food your body gets the more your metabolism works, wonder why micheal phelps is riped as fuck eating 8000-10000 cal a day?

    Check out Paleo. I do a modified paleo and man does it give me the energy I need to do my workouts and love how I feel. Cholesterol is down and my A1c is a lot better than it ever was!

    No, no we don't! :notsure: If I were to do that I would have done it a long time ago when I was young, dumb and full of .....you know the rest!

    I know 10-12x BW works well, but like you said it does get miserable and performance is affected. LeanGains suggests 1,500 on rest days and 2,000 on workout days for my size which may be doable only eating 2x a day.

    Maybe I'll just slowly work it down from where I am now, 2k calories with lots of protein. Have been looking into DIM (an estrogen metaboliser) and some other things. As well!

    I wouldn't wing it on what it suggests. Take a week to count the calories you take in a day. If you stay basically the same weight, then that is your base caloric intake (i think that's what it's called). Meaning, that's the amount of calories to take in to maintain your weight. From there, work your diet from that. I will usually take in about 500-300 less calories on off days, macros being 40p/20c/20f. On workout days, i'll eat what i'd usually eat to maintain, macros 40p/40/20f. But work around what works for you. It takes a little work, but the results will show.

    EDIT:
    This is only for cutting.

    Is this on computer? I need to find a better way to keep track macros rather than writing it down.
