You can stay at your sub 10% level and still eat over 4k a day?

What macro breakdown do you aim for, and do you count macros all the time or just for prep?

Nice write up.

Nice write up.

Thanks for taking the time to put this together. It is a great base to work off of for many of use who have trouble with accurate diet planning. I need a lot of guidance with meal planning because of my work schedule and I use a diet planning webapp that has helped me a lot. I will post it in the "Diet and Nutrition" section for anyone interested.

STAY STRONG and SEMPER FI

Fixit - brother, whats your

Fixit - brother, whats your take on peanut butter and nuts in general? I got my diet down to a T, measuring food & all that. Goal is to gain muscle size on current cycle but stay solid so drop bf % by 3-5% max, so its not a typical bulking regimn. Do you avoid nuts and peanut butter, almond butter,... all that stuff when you're trying to cut bf or do you incorporate it  anyways ? Give me your opinion on that bro.

Hey Fixit! Things are going

Hey Fixit! Things are going quite well, thanks for asking :)

Right now I'm on a bulking plan. Between cycles i did a carb cycle plan that worked rather well. One question tho: how ling do you have your clients run this plan? 4 weeks maybe?

Depending on where i end up at the end of the cycle I'm running now concerning bf%, i may consider another rigorous diet plan for the 12-16 weeks between cycles. Man, 1600 cal/day is very rigorous now that I'm thinking about.
