    My macros when dieting are 10% fat 60% carbs 30% protein. Quite a lot of guys on gear run low fat high carb when they diet because you don't really need the fat for hormonal function and you can take much more volume so more carbs are helpful.

    I fully expect to lose this contest but it's a great opportunity for me to actually have a reason to cut for the summer. Also I don't need to be fat as fuck when I propose to my girlfriend this summer.

    Waiting for my CFA books to get here so I can eat breakfast, lift, eat again, take amphetamines, go to the library and spend all doing studying then go home eat and sleep. Easiest way to cut, no way to snack.

    Oh, didn't think about that.
    Perhaps that is the case.

    I do know though that an anterior pelvic tilt makes the stomach appear larger. Women often have APT which can make their stomach stick out even though they are actually thin. My previous APT has almost vanished completely from strengthening the core and the hips/glutes. So I think it can be related to your hip alignment and hip strength as well.

    The fat intake is often made in relation to bodyweight. Usual numbers for fat intake are 0.25-0.5 per pound of bodyweight (you can go higher of course).
    Considering that The Rock weighs a lot more than the average guy, his fat intake is actually not high at all, while it is relatively higher for the untrained, regular weight guy.

    Oh man climbing is so much freaking fun!

    The inside of my left arm hurts so much though. I thought it was sore from the climbing, but I honestly think that I'm getting stretch marks from gaining muscle too fast there and it's causing pain.

    Weird huh?


    Cod Damn.

    Are stretch marks rare? My chest and shoulders are filled with them.

    I'll try but it's really hard to see. The skin just looks a bit pinker and shines in the light differently at the exact spot where it hurts. The stretch marks on my chest/delt intersection region are a reddish pink.

    Yeah I have those too on my shoulders, but not as big since I'm way smaller than you. The inside of elbow thing is freaking weird, but it hurts exactly where the mark is and only started to bother me when I start climbing/lifting not during the day.

    Are you sure that those are stretch marks? Sounds like a really odd place for stretch marks.

    I've got stretch marks all over my thighs and ass... bootylicious girl problems? But I'm surprised the ones on your ellbow hurt, I guess you might keep an eye on that, doesn't really sound like normal stretch marks to me.

    Something different. What is the best way to take pics to see what one actually really looks like? I have selfies in every stadium from looking like shit to being totally satisfied. It's kinda the equivalent of me getting up one day feeling like THIS.IS.SPARTAAA! and the next day getting up and thinking about quitting working out because I look/feel like I make no progress.

    This was yesterday at the gym

    I've also decided to not lose any weight per se anymore. I'll try to hold this weight until June, so I'll go up a bit with the kcal but stick with 25g carbs a day. I'd like to lose some fat while getting a bit more quality mass. Wonder if this would work out as a recompose. I know myself good enough that bulk would mean I'd go full potato and stuff every shit in my face I can find.
