    My vote (based on stalling/not making progress), I would suggest lowering your fats to like 75 grams, and increasing your carbs by like 150 grams.

    Agree. You don’t need 350g if protein. Those calories are better spent on carbs. Keep fats lower than 100.

    his protein goal isn't 350 it's his BW. Iowabull, not sure how you're tracking your cals and macros because you're all over the place with them. even the totals on that graph aren't adding up correctly. and 75 grams of fat is too low. fat shouldn't be lower than 0.3 grams per lb bw. But anyway, you need to get a better control of your daily cals and macros.

    Did my 3rd pin overall this morning. Start of the 2nd week. No changes as would be expected this early on. I have worked on cleaning up my macros quite a bit.

    I'm 2 weeks in. Feeling very bloated and full all of the time. Diet is still very clean but I'm honestly struggling to get my calories. I need to do better. Weighed in at 299 today which sucked. Lol. No strength gains but libido is improved.

    We spoke on PM. He’s gained 15lbs in 2 weeks but adex was only .25 3x/wk. we’re bumping that to .5 3x/wk and my guess is that still won’t be enough.

    Blood work in 3-4 weeks will confirm.

    Starting my 3rd week of pinning. The bloated feeling is getting much better. I will weigh in mid week and see where I'm at.

    your body is going to go through a lot of changes, losing fat, building muscle, etc. Don't get caught up on the scale as much as the mirror.

    For sure man. I'm really hoping to lean thru my midsection the most. My macros are much cleaner from advice from board bros on here so I'm on the right track.
