    2 months progress

    Hey everyone, Im pretty new to the gym life, I restarted training in January after 3 years and last 2 months I'm really training hard, but without seeing much results. I'm eating very clean, no sugar alcohol or processed carbs and around 130-150 g of protein daily. 6'3 and 166 lbs. I feel like I'm skinny fat and I haven't decided if I should cut or bulk first and I don't have a stable calorie program yet. Last 2 months overall I'm down 4 lbs, but I don't feel neither leaner nor more muscular. I feel like there's a slight improvement in my chest, I will post some pics. The pics with the red shorts are from today, the other 2 months ago. Both right after upper body workout

    You'll need to dial in your training and nutrition a little more than "really training hard" & "eating very clean". You may also have to stick with it for longer than 2 months.

    That sounds like a boring lifestyle. When I was 5'8" and 166 lbs I was eating all sorts of protein, carbs and beer. But you do what you want to do.

    Did you freeze it into ice pops or soak it into bread? That might be tasty.

    Two months is not nearly long enough to see progress in the mirror, though you should be seeing progress on your lifts. If you're not following an established program then you should be, and track your lifts so you know that you're actually progressing. It will take 6 months to a year of consistent training and nutrition for you to actually notice any significant changes in the mirror.

    Nobody who is 6'3" and 166 should be cutting, so that question is solved. Either just eat at maintenance and increase calories when your lifts stall out, or eat in a very small surplus, gaining no more than about 1-2 pounds per month.
    All it takes is consistency, effort, proper nutrition, good programming, and TIME.

    Don't be upset with the results you didn't get from the work you did not do.

    based off of minimal information, it sounds like you should be eating more. also, maintenance calculators are not always spot on, so if you are not getting results you will want to adjust. it would not surprise me at all if you increase your calorie intake enough that you see significant strength gains, especially as a beginner.
