I'm 53 and for the last year I've been "bulking". Adding about 500 cals surplus a day based on Tdee and lifting heavy.
I noticed I add the weight on the stomach area. Don't like this so I back off the calories to lose the stomach fat.
Lifting every day and staying active drops the stomach fat but the net result is low net weight gain. By this I mean something on the order of 5 to 10 lbs per year.
Everyone gives advice to eat, eat and eat more. This results in many lbs of fat in my midsection.
So what's the correct advice?
