Getting back to good
Ok I need some advice guys and gals
I have been injured for about a month and a half now and been confined to walking on crutches. During this time I have not been able to workout and I've been eating like a pig. I'm supposed to be back on my feet by the end of this month.
I have started a low fat diet and am watching sugars and sodium. I'm eating about 5-6 small meals/day, each with serving of protein and carbs. Here's my question:
When I get back into my regular routine of training and dieting hard, should I start a bulking diet and try to rebuild my strength and then trim the fat. OR should I immediately try to start cutting fat with a low-carb, low-calorie diet. Thanks in advance for all input.

The first thing I would do is get your bodyfat measured, and then go from there. Eating Clean is a good start

I gained somewhere around 15 lbs. I am on my third day of low fat, low cal, moderate protein/carb diet and have already shedded 3-4 pounds. Here's what I'm thinking:
While i'm still on crutches I'm gonna try a low carb diet, like Atkins, since I can't do much physical activity anyway i don't need the energy from the carbs. When I get off the crutches I'll do two weeks of a high cal, high protein, moderate carb, low fat diet. Then for the rest of the summer I will do a strict cutting diet with low cal, mod-low carbs, high prot, low fat.
