    Help with my diet for summer

    Hey guys, I've been lifting for 10months, I went from 163lbs to 205 lbs, and my lifts went from
    45lbs 2-3reps bench to 260lbs 1rep
    45lbs squat to 360lbs squat
    not even bar deadlift to 240ish lb deadlift.
    Reason my deadlift is so low is because I seem to have very weak hands (wrists) and cannot successfully hold on to the bar, my hands just open and let go...

    I am 6'3, and 18 years old, male. I am quite developed, stopped growing at 14, really hairy all over (dem genetics), so i'd say my HTPA Is quite developped etc but cant tell.

    I have never used steroids and yes I am thinking bout a var/tbol cycle but was told to hold off for a while.


    I eat allot and seem to not gain much fat, I am 15% right now and am eating around 4000calories spread out at around 200g protein and 130g fat with 350g carbs...

    Not sure what kind of diet I should follow for my cutting.

    Any tips? at 4000calories I seem to be gaining very little fat, I was bulking with 5000.

    Good start! 40lbs gained... thats quite something in 10 months, do you have any pictures? Just for curiousity, we can see how you're developing.

    205lbs @ 15% puts you around 174lbs lean. 15x LBM = TDEE. ~2600 calories a day for your weight to maintain your weight.
    Your current diet of 200p / 350c / 130f is around 3400 calories. Not 4000, I would suggest sticking to that, its a surplus of around 800 calories a day which should give you maybe 1.5lbs a week weight gain.

    Remember, these are just estimates. You need to monitor your weight accurately, and keep an eye on your bodyfat.

    Can you give us a breakdown of a daily diet? Break it down into meals and the macros with it please!

    Those were when I started, I just noticed that I gained 40lbs and still look horrible!
    I look tiny, and am way above the 15% fat that the gym estimated me to be at.
    Almost too embarrassed to post the vid but here it is, at least i found a good soundtrack for it haha, bad lighting I guess, thought I looked allot better than that.


    Anyway my diet consists of whatever I can get my food on, protein shakes, chicken breast, broccoli, rice, corn flakes, pitas with chicken inside or whatever, sandwhiches, allot of meat... However to be honest I have been cheating lately when I don't have quick access to food and I get extremely hungry.

    I will settle my diet down, just need pointers as to what I should and shouldn't be eating!

    I seem much higher than 15% in that vid, I look thinner when I see myself, guess its different point of view, god im fat.

    From watching that video, I have no idea how my lifts are so high compared to my development, I look like i've never been in a gym. I am very shocked by it. This is cold with bad lighting in the morning though, if I can use that as an excuse, I look way better pumped I guess haha.

    Relinked your video.

    You definitly dont look like 205lbs lol. You said you're 6'3" though, so maybe its just that there is noone else to give perspective. If I were you, I wouldnt worry so much about any fat gain, I would just eat and train.

    Where are you in the world that chicken is 10$ for two breasts? I get 10kg (22lbs) for 20 (32$). Try and get some milk, eggs, and whatever meat you can. Eat as much broccoli as you like and stuff yourself. Watch the scales, if you're gaining more than 1lb a week, eat less. Gaining less than 1lb a week, eat more. Thats about as simple as I can make it for now with what you've given us.

    Its not perfect advise, the sooner you put up an example daily diet, the better we can give you proper advise.

    Give your weekly workout routine, that will help with further advice....you must be on the right track tho if you gained that much weight in 10 months.
