    Calories might be a bit low. If you eat that much every day, you may lose weight a little bit too fast and end up losing some muscle.

    What is your lifestyle like? (ie job, exercise)

    If you are relatively new to lifting and exercising you really dont have to. Make sure youre diet is spot on and lift SMART. If you do those two things you will accomplish your goals.

    I lifted for a year + before the back problems but with a shitty diet... I wasnt eating fast food but I also wasnt watching it closely enough... I know without the right diet its pointless...

    Yeah it looks like you could eat some more calories due to your activity. If you work a non-sit-down job, definitely up the calories.

    Are you hitting the weights at the gym?

    the amount of protein you're eating will help with the muscle maintenance.

    I think with your amount of activity, you should add a morning snack or add some calories to breakfast. Not sure if that would be enough to add...

    How many pounds per week are you losing?

    You evening snack is WAYOVERKILL. You don't need 82g of protein per meal dude. You weigh 185lbs. Based on your macro content I would drop the protein down a bit, up your carbs and see what happens. YOu don't need that much protein, its being converted when its not used for repair purposes anyway.
    If you are going to mix cottage cheese and whey before bed only use 1 scoop, no need for two.

    He could be taking in 130g of protein and still be fine to "maintain"

    I agree, but look at his dinner. It's way underkill. I think as long as his calories add up throughout the day to a good number, I don't think it will cause him any problems. For example, I eat three meals, three snacks, but I find I"m really hungry after lunch, so I switch my designated evening snack to add it to my afternoon snack and it works out fine.

    Perhaps the TS's lifestyle is such that he is very hungry at that time?

    ah ok. But he is still trying to build at the same time.

    I'm only really talking about maintenance to avoid losing too much muscle when cutting.

    I'm not really familiar with bulking + cutting at same time, but from alot of the people around here, I hear the best thing to do is one or the other at a time.

    yes i am

    im not really losing any weight , nor am I looking to lose weight , dont really care what the scale says , i just want to drop the body fat :hsd:

    those are my evening snacks , not in one sitting.. i eat my dinner at around 4pm , and go to bed anywhere between 11PM and 1 AM so I have a lot of hours in between for the snacks..

    Im actually full all the time , I cant believe my calorie intake is so low :hs:

    It's not THAT low, but I think for someone who is trying to build muscle, you should be eating 2500+
    You're only slightly under at 2300

    based on your current size and goals, sounds like you are a perfect fit for a carb cycling diet.

    its been working great for me. im getting visibly leaner as im gettin sttonger. you dont have to "choose one", but you do have to be a bit more maticulous, compare to a regular clean bulk..
