Continuing here like instructed.
I try to consume 3500 a day. Not always and sometimes more. Couple days ago I felt full and bloated so only took in 2200. About 2 weeks ago I ate a quarter pounder, 2 dbl cheeseburgers 2 small fries a coke and a medium milkshake. In one sitting. Just depends

As for 1:1 I honestly try. But carbs tend to win most days. Which is why my body fat percent is probably in the low 20s.

Feel good today. Did my workout this am. 4 eggs half cup pancake mix and strawberries. Snack at 10 was nuts and raisins. Around one I ate a large wendys chili and a package of beef jerky. More nuts and raisins about hour ago and getting ready to make a big ass thing of spaghetti so i probably wont hit 3500 today. However I'm noticing fat dripping off slowly. Shoulders more defined. Remarks on my arms. Pecs feeling tighter and fuller. Legs more veiny. I'm luckily blessed with huge "for my weight" and we'll defined calves.
Weight this am 201lbs.

This is a tough time right now to get started tracking when you don't have the full use of a gym. It makes it difficult to see full progress and symmetry can slip when everything isn't being worked equally.

Not hitting your numbers for diet will only hurt you in the end. It will also be difficult to determine what your maintenance cals are. They are the cals that keep you at the weight you are. So obviously you would have to add cals. But, you don't know how much to add if you don't know what it takes to keep you where your at. Hitting these numbers consistently for a few weeks will tell you that and make all this super simple when you get it down. The big bodybuilding secret- Hitting diet numbers. Lots of hard workers in the gym not making progress because of diet.

Diet is the absolute most important thing to get down at the start. If you don't, you will keep spinning your wheels or make slow progress.

No bullshit :)

Maintenance calories are around 2500 calories. Any more and I start bloating and feeling heavy so to speak.

What did you do to determine your maintenance cals were at 2500?

Have you tried cleaning up your carbs a little bit? That may help with bloating issues.

What is your 3 month goal? That will determine what your diet should look like.

The guys here usually get bloods drawn to determine if everything is running smoothly during cycle.

Quick question.
Does anyone elses calf size match arm size ? My entire life they have been this way. My calfs are shredded vascular and huge "for my weight" measure last night at 16 inches. I do NOT do calf excercises other then when its involved in compound movements. Such as deadlift and squat. Can post a pic later.
