    Diet help for injury time * advice*

    Im 27 year old male 6'2 and been working out for 9 years. came a long way..... long story short I have an injury on my l5-s1 disc herniation and I fell off since due to not being able to do all I can like I used too.

    now I been experiencing new neck/shoulder blade/elbow issue. worked with a sport Chiro and tried 8 weeks off and only cardio to get it fixed.... no relief... can't do upper body it gives me a pulling shoulder blade issue going to the elbow with a stiff neck.... the ni ended up almost tripping and catching my step that left my right knee in pain which has gotten way better than 9 weeks ago but still have aches throughout day... and night.... talk about horrible horrible literally horrible luck.... I lost my whole shredded mass look and all. it really does suck

    now I feel my face is like jiggly ( throat and chin feel shaky) and I feel fat due to not working out and dieting is the best I can do....

    I have been dieting but I don't know too much and im eating clean 95% of the time.... my macros are at 180-200 c/ 200-210 pro/ 60-80 fat

    is this too high?... I mean I don't wanna lose all mass and look scrawny..... I have been trying to do cardio 4-5x a week 45-1 hour low bike or treadmill which sucks because I feel it doesn't do nothing.... but I been trying ... and my day is mostly a desk job..... not really too active..... what do u guys suggest ...

    Spongy knows his shit very well. 80/90% of us could give you lots of good advice, but hes the man.

    What other sort of treatment do you get aside the chiro..?

    Keep in mind this guide assumes you are lifting, but the same concepts will apply in terms of maintaining LBM.
