    So after looking at this pictures it really hit home that I am not happy with where my body is at this point in my cycle. I love my strength gains, my energy, and my libido but my body is not where I want it at all. What advice would some of you have for me. I am hitting my 3600 pretty consistantly. Getting body weight protien, 100 grams of fat and the rest on carbs. When I miss I honestly miss on the low side of 3600. I have a cheat meal maybe every 10 days or so but they aren't crazy. I lift 5 days a week with a high level of intensity. I do 40-50 minutes of moderate level cardio including eliptical and recumbent bike 5-6 days a week as well. My diet isn't perfect by any stretch of the imagination but I feel like I am clean for the most part. Thanks in advance for the feedback. This forum has been amazing to be a part of.

    My workout buddy thinks I am putting too much stress on my body with the cardio i do and am causing my body to store fat. What are your thoughts on that ?

    Cardio isn’t it. At 3600 cals you should be dropping weight. One idea would be to lay out your diet, morsel for morsel here and these guys can dissect it. If you’re on those drugs, lifting that much and doing that much cardio, I’d guess your diet needs tweaking. Post it up and be dead honest about it. These guys can help you.

    Do not walk behind me, for I may not lead.
    Do not walk in front of me, for I may not follow.
    Do not walk beside me either.
    Pretty much just leave me alone.

    Here are screenshots from yesterday. I dont vary much from day to day other than switching in and out kinds of meat. I notice my sodium is high. What are some other thoughts? What can I do with this layout to better my results? Thanks in advance.

    Huh. Macros wise looks fine. I would think you’d be losing weight. You and I are eating (macro wise) just about the same. I weigh 50lbs less though. Hopefully one of the smart guys will be along shortly and help steer you. Are you really bloated?

    Start of week 9 today. Strength gains were very noticable last week. I hope to continue on that trend this week. Hopefully this is the week I begin to lean out. Lol

    Pinned the 1st pin of week 11 yesterday. Shoulder has slowed me. I finally went to the Dr. And I have a microfracture on my collar bone. Hopefully it heals quickly so I can get back to heavy lifting.
