    What is my bodyfat%? photos here

    So I have been on a cut for the past several months, and I definitely look much leaner than when I started. I am trying to determine my bodyfat percentage based on photos, but I am having a hard time.

    I am including some photos here so that some of you with experience would be able to better inform me.

    This is what I was thinking about. I am considering doing a very slow bulk, but my concern is that my body fat % will raise while doing so. Is it possible to do a slow bulk while still lowering my body fat %?

    Can I add muscle while still losing body fat? If I add muscle very slowly by eating just slighly above maintenance? I just want to see some increased abdominal definitition.

    You have to be in a deficit to lose fat. You're in a position where you could either lose 10 lbs then slow bulk or slow bulk now and cut the fat later. It comes down to if you want less fat or more muscle right now
    If you don't get what you want you didn't want it bad enough

    What do you mean you 'just' want to see increased abdominal definition?

    If that's literally all you want, then just lose some weight... going to the gym and lifting will do barely anything for abs, and you could just save the membership money and to planks or crunches at home if you wanted to stimulate your core.

    Abs are highly genetic, and they're not prone to hypertrophy to the same degree as other muscle groups.

    And no, by definition if you eat ABOVE maintenance, you're adding fat, not losing it.

    You can get down to sub 10% and still not have abs. They need to be developed then the fat stripped away. I wouldn't waste my time chasing abs right now.

    I wouldn’t say you really need to cut or bulk. You have enough fat on you to build muscle without bulking. I would get on a good workout program and not bulk or cut till you stop seeing progress in you strength going up. Then re evaluate your goals and adjust your plan to fit them

    If you're eating right, training right and resting right you're not gonna gain a massive amount of fat. If that were my physical frame my first concern would be adding some good quality mass; it's not like you're a bloatlord so it won't be a year plus process to strip everything back post bulk if you keep things fairly clean and don't just smash empty calories for the sake of being in surplus.

    Hey guys, I am trying to use an online TDEE calculator and don't know what to put down for activity level. I do the Fierce 5 program strictly, and casually ride my bike the rest of the week. What level of activity would I typically be in when using these TDEE calculators?

    wait, do you still not know what your TDEE is?

    it doesn't matter what you put in there, just pick a number and run it for two weeks while weighing yourself every morning, then adjust based on that

    Nope, I don’t. I’ve been doing a pretty severe cut for the past few months where I’ve been taking in 1400 cals a day, so I don’t know what my maintenance TDEE is. I’m thinking it could be 1900, or it could be 2300. I really don’t know. That’s why I want to calculate it in order to obtain a starting point, and then adjust from there.

    Heres how to figure it

    Say you lost 20 lbs in 24 weeks:

    20 divided by 24 = .833 lbs a week lost
    8.33 x 3,500 = 11,666 deficit per week
    11,666 divided by 7 = 388.86 which is your daily deficit
    add 388 to your current daily calories and that is your maintenance.

    The 3,500 represents the amount of calories in a pound of fat

    Insert your numbers in the equation and you'll be close. there are a lot of variables however this number you come up with will be a decent starting point and you'll adjust from there after 3 weeks

    I’m not sure I’m doing the math right. So based on my last weighings, I lost about 5 pounds in the past 4 weeks. So that would mean that I had a 625 calorie deficit per day? So if I add 625 to my average daily calorie intake, that would be a about a 2075 tdee?

    yep. The math is correct however I’m thinking you’re taking in more than 1,400 calories

    What makes you think that?

    Either way, I was on a 625 cal deficit, right?

    because 1400 calories is ridiculously low for an adult male, and on those calories most people would be losing way more than 5 pounds per month

    the deficit is correct for the most part however unless you were very short, a maintenance of just over 2,000 calories is low. How tall are you and what’s your weight

    Cut or Maintenance?

    I thought maybe I should eat in a caloric surplus but after reading Jeff Nippards body recomp it says to cut until 15% then eat 10-25% surplus.

    go more by the mirror. People carry fat differently and have varying degrees of muscle mass so going just on BF numbers when making this decision can sometimes be incorrect.

    Is it possible to add muscle and lose body fat at the same time? How long will it take me to gain muscle if I eat just slightly above maintenance? Increasing abdominal definition is all I am looking for.

    Hi, I have another noobish question. So I am inching myself back up towards a lighter cut, or even maintenance. I’m still figuring that out precisely, but I think that given the math, it’s ATLEAST 2075 cals. It’s probably higher.

    But is it safe to take in exactly my body weight in protein in grams? Like taking in exactly 141g protein if I weigh 141 lbs? Like, what if not every gram of protein gets absorbed efficiently? You know? I’ve heard that some protein gets lost in digestion, so not all of it is absorbed. Mind you, I am getting nearly all of my protein from animal sources such as beef, eggs, chicken, fish roe, and cheese. But if it doesn’t all get absorbed, the 141 g protein I take in might actually end up being like only 120 or something grams for my muscles. This is why I have always had the habit of taking in atleast 10g protein more than my body weight. Is this a legitimate concern, or am I over thinking this?

    I don’t even know what my maintenance calories are anymore. I decided to start eating until I was full. So I ate 2400 cals a few days ago. Then I ate 2800-2900 cals yesterday and the day before, and now I look more “lean” and “muscular” than ever before when looking in the mirror. All that pudge seems to have disappeared, and my muscles look bigger. It must be a fluid thing or something. I have no idea what my body wants in terms of nutrients.. Am I crazy?
