    And just eat a clean but protein-heavy diet?

    I have switched to this kind of diet, got tired of the ups and downs of weight gain, bulking/cutting got kinda old for me after I had done it 3-4 times of the years, but that could also be that now that Im natty, its not worth it to blow it out in the kitchen because I dont have that extra "help".

    It's just I don't eat a lot, but I don't eat very little either. This would be a typical day for me...

    Meal 1:
    Two slices raisin bread
    One cup milk
    Banana
    or
    Oatmeal
    or
    One cup fruit
    One cup low-fat cottage cheese

    Meal 2:
    Turkey sandwich on wheat
    or
    Natty PB sandwich on wheat

    Meal 3:
    Another one of those sandwiches
    or
    Whatever fruit i have lying around

    Meal 4:
    Plate of salad with vinegar
    Meat product of some kind (usually chicken, pork, or turkey)

    And on work-out days I usually have a fifth meal which is made up of a protein shake. Now that i look at it, it seems a little...less than I should be eating.

    why not just slow bulk for a couple years and then eat a deficit after that to get down to where you want? then you dont have to deal with the "ups and downs" of dieting...

    definitely less than you should be eating.

    That's the problems with living in dorms. I can't get to the fucking kitchen. If I could cook my own meals, I'd be eating a shit ton more...the dining halls just don't offer what I'd like to be eating.

    I did that for ~5 years...it got me a pretty decent body, but gains were brutal. It's something to do if you're happy where you're at.

    I'm tiny in F&N standards (5'8 155lbs), but I primarily want to lose excess fat I'm carrying around, I'm not looking to get big. I've been lifting weights for almost a year now, and I've recently taken up running (I dibble-dabbled with it before...but I was never consistent with it, now I'm getting serious).

    Bulking/cutting brings me instant gains as opposed to slow gains. Bulking adds notable mass and strength while cutting brings out the striations of that muscle, so there is constantly something to keep me motivated.

    I'm having a hard time staying motivated while cutting :(

    I think it's lack of carbs though, I feel like I'm drained in the gym.

    Ya, that is my big thing too. I seem to hate the gym more during that time, but when I look in the mirror I know it is worth it. Yesterday was such a badass workout, I had so much energy now that I am eating again.
