That's the bigger end of L so I'd just get L. Shouldn't have any problems with them sliding down

Thanks guys. I get the feeling from reading more forum posts that a lot of people who size down wear them lower than intended.

I think within a week or two I can safely ease my way into lifting again, going to go low and slow for now.

Thinking I might hop back on the IF train to lose some of this weight i've gained.

Low carb, moderate fat, high protein, focusing on getting most carbs in before and after workouts. On rest days up the fats a little, keep protein higher, and lower carbs.

Hows that sound?

I just have to figure out what my TDEE is now. Think i'm going to start at around 2,800 calories on workout days, and 2,200 rest days. Aiming for a 1lb-1.5lb loss a week to start.

Going to attempt to finish what I started months ago, lean out to 8-10%, then slow bulk from there. I would say i'm around 18%BF at 187 right now, I think 170-173 will put where I want.

For performance, I'm not so sure about the "eat less calories and carbs on rest day" thing. 

Its on rest days you recover and fuel for the next day when you will work out.

 

Research also shows that more spaced out smaller meals (with smaller doses of protein) results in higher muscle protein synthesis (potential muscle growth) than fewer big meals (of higher protein doses). The body can digest a lot of protein, and more protein will lead to less muscle protein breakdown, but all protein beyond 30-40g in a single meal won't contribute to more muscle protein synthesis. MPS tops out at 30g of whey, for instance.

 

There's also no fat losing effect going on when you shift your calories from carbs to fat. More carbs just make you hold more water, so you're just gonna lose more water weight initially by eating less carbs and more fat, no losing more body fat.

 

If I'd cut now, I'd keep the same deficit and same macros every day; mod-high carbs, lowish fat, mod-high protein, say 400c, 50f, 200p = 2800 kcals for me at 200lb, resulting in a daily 500 deficit or so. I lift around 4-8 o clock so I'd skip the carbs at breakfast, eat some before lifting, and then most of them afterwards.

 

You may do well on low-carb and IF, but I no longer believe I could lift as well doing it.

I was thinking something like

Rest Day:
225P
100C
100F

Lift Day:
200P
375C
50F

Im going to guess you'll have to go a fait bit lower then 170lb. Your probably carrying a fair bit of water, you could probably hit 175 within 2 weeks of cutting and not look that different.

Nice to hit an new PR heading into deload week. I hope I'm doing this right.
post #47753 of 57313

I earned my deload week too! Well, after bench and deadlift testing later this week...

Everywhere she's just big like she could push a plough or some shit. My flat consists of an anorexic girl an obese girl and my non natty self. It's like a temple of body insecurity.

pitch her for slave labor

I'm sure she's going to feel very uncomfortable because me and the eating disorder girl both weigh all our food and track cals with myfitnesspal, we both go to the gym a lot, she goes like 4 hours a day it's kind of weird and we both talk about it a lot like discussing plans for cheat days and shit. I also have a dip station, gymnastic rings and a lower back extension in the living room. When she moved in I was making protein fluff and when she asked why I was eating it I told her it has good macros and I like being shredded.
