    alright i need some suggestions
    im trying to develop some lean muscle mass while cutting fat.
    im 5'9'' roughly 195 lbs. been working on cutting fat for the past 2 months and have significantly reduced my body fat percentage from 30 to 18...but the last 10 lbs of fat seems to be pretty damn stubborn when it comes to letting go. heres a picture of me trying to flex my abs... as you can see no definition whatsoever. any advice/suggestions?

    Unless you're on roids or just starting to work out, you'll have to pick one.

    You don't look bad, I'd keep cutting for awhile so you can get to a lower BF% and then bulk for longer. Have you decreased your caloric intake since losing that mass? As you drop weight you'll need to decrease the calories to keep the losses coming, not significantly but enough.

    yeah i know, the thing i hate about decreasing caloric intake is that i loose muscle mass. my diet consist of 40% protien, 40% fat, 20% carbs... i have read that increasing my carb intake would actually increase my metabolism..and i have read otherwise... what is your take on it?

    After being stuck at 18% for 2 months I did a crash diet to get to 15% but I also lost a ton of strength.

    I think the general rule is 11-12x body weight with 1g protein/lb bodyweight, 20% good fats and rest carbs.
