    What if still hungry?

    I am 185lbs, 9%BF and was trying to cut just a lil bit more fat before I start my next cycle in a month. I was going to cut my carbs from 300 gm per day down to 200 , while maintaining my protein intake at around 250 - 300 gm per day. I have a high matabolism and I am always hungry, what if through the period of a day I am still hungry after eating 300gm protein and 200 gm of Carb, do I eat more protein? Is that a sign my body is not getting enough food? Do i disregard my stomachs call for food? Any feedback would be great.

    What does your diet look like?

    Times of day, macro breakdown, etc......

    At 9% BF i'd say you need to refeed about every 5 days or so, this will help Leptin levels and will help with hunger. you are at a low BF right now, your body most likely does not want to go any lower.

    ...this may seem like a stupid question, if I get the 300+gm of protein I am currently getting w/ 200gm carb, even though I am hungry, I wont lose the muscle I have gotten, right?

    Depends, on alot of things it not really that simple. but yes 300g of protein for your size should make it hard to lose muscle.

    Dude you are 9% BF and you are trying to lose weight! WTF do you want your body to tell you???? Of course it's going to try and get you to eat, that why I recomended you do periodic refeeds, to help with this.
