    What should my diet look like

    Attached you should be able to see my physique and current lifting program. I have some loose skin around my chest and lower stomach area because overall I have lost about 100lbs. I am wondering what currently my diet should look like, whether a bulk or cut seems necessary. I am 19 years old 6 feet tall and 180lbs. My lightest is 166lbs but that was when I was only running with no lifting. Currently my macros look like this
    2400 Calories
    200g Protein
    200g Carbs
    80g Fat

    I’m not a fan of that program... it seems super random and it doesn’t really outline a progression scheme at all.

    As for nutrition, you look pretty lean for 180, you could do a slow lean bulk at your current state.

    I’m not sure 2400 calories would be enough, that seems super low to me... but, you know your body better than I do.

    I agree with all of this & I'm sorry but there's just no a chance in Hell you're bulking on 2400 calories at your height/weight/age unless you're a coma patient, OP. For a better lifting routine, check out the "Fierce 5" Novice routine.

    What would you recommend in terms of programs. I feel good after these workouts and I feel like it will help out with muscle development but also I am clearly no expert. As for diet what would you recommend for macros I don't want to go overboard

    I was just saying 2400 is my current limit I was more wondering if I should bulk. Also I looked up that program and it just does not seem "intense" enough for me I guess. I am more than willing to take it up just the program I am doing right now I am feeling good about it at the end of each day. Plus I am still finding ways to max out and I am consistently increasing in the big 4.

    I don’t think you understand what ‘intense’ means... i don’t think you’ve been actually training hard, because if you run fierce 5 with the right weights, it’s very challenging...

    When you increase weights on the bar every week, believe me, it’s NOT easy..

    You look pretty good.
    Diet looks fine,i personally like balanced macros like that.
    If your goal is to gain muscle it's a long process that one has to be patient with.
    A five pound gain of pure muscle is a good one for a natural bodybuilder.
    I agree, a slow lean bulk might be the best.
    Train hard and intense to stimulate muscle growth.
    Take pics month to month to compare to see if you are getting results.
