    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    When cutting I think the best bet is to tell yourself you're not eating for any enjoyment whatsoever. That and making all your meals for the weak ahead and just reheating and eating.

    Cutting with IF was fine idk what you guys are on. Just drink green tea and water if you're hungry and tell yourself you aren't hungry and 2 minutes later you won't be hungry TAADAAA

    then again i'm back up to my pre-cut weight but i'm doing a whateverbulk where i just eat without giving a fuck because its winter and i don't give a fuck plus working running into all of this is a pain in the ass.

    I'd rather be really miserable for weeks than kind of miserable for months...

    In the past 3 months I've added 40 lbs on my squat, 45 on my bench and 55 on my deadlift, not bad for being pretty damn lazy and stressing over the stupid GMAT. Excited to see what the next 3 months of dedicated training will bring. :slayer:

    I did carb cycling -- so it was 4 days of eating nice high fat foods so long as I kept the carbs below 75g. Nice fatty meats, bacon, cheese, etc.
    Then on day 5 it was YOLO carbs -- I'm talking 800g of gummy bears, sweet tarts, bagels, etc.
    Would do what GN did and went thru a gallon of Green Tea a day -- really helped with the appetite and also kept me nice and dry and aesthetic

    Would put sauces on shit -- just made sure they were low cal. Mustard and hot sauce on errthing.
    Kept myself at a modest 700-1000 cal deficit on no carb days, ate maintenance on carb days. Resulted in about 1.5lbs loss/week from dieting. In the final few weeks I added in cardio 3x a week to lose a couple extra pounds.

    All in all it really wasn't too bad. Only major issue I had was low libido which zinc + mag helped with.

    I should probably start counting cals and tracking my intake. Fucking hate weighing shit out and everything, and the engineer in me hates guessing. Just cracked a gallon of milk guess I gotta finish the whole thing so I don't have to measure how much is left.

    For maintenance I did bw x 15 cals. Then for a standard workout I'd add an additional 400 cals. When I was 180lbs, on a workout day my maintenance would be 3100, so I would eat around 2400 for a -700 deficit. When I start my cut this time, I'll be around 210 lbs, so will cut on 2850.

    Oh yeah, gained 1.5 inches on my biceps, too, up to 14.5"

    Oh yeah, 15.5" calves, is that big?

    EDIT: According to my brosearch, 1:1 bicep:calf ratio is aesthetic, so I'm almost there.

    Ages 18-24... that's when my hairline took the most obvious hit. Wish I knew I was supposed to get jacked to go with it.

    1:1:1 bicep:calf:neck is master race status

    15.5" calves is as impressive as 15.5" biceps...which is, erm...pretty good?
