    With that much gear there should be almost no way to lose weight unless you're not eating anywhere near your maintenance kcals... with 125 test and 350 tren on a 500kcal deficit I was still gaining 1/4-1/2lb ew...

    Are you tracking your foods or just guessing? You could be severely underestimating kcals if not actually weighing/tracking foods. The simple solution is just eat waaayyyyyy more then you are currently and keep adding food until you start putting on too much fat.

    Add at least 500 kcals. 1000 would be even better. If you want to keep it lean, add 500 each week until you're gaining too much fat

    The split is really personal preference/ trial and error. Total kcals is more important in a bulk anyways as long as you're getting adequate protein and fats.

    The easiest way to go is 1.5-2g/lb of protein, .4g/lb of fats and then whatever kcals remain you can eat in carbs.
    So, for example a 200lb guy:
    1.5 -2g/lb P = 300 to 400g *4kcal/g = 1200 to 1600kcal
    .4g/lb F = 80g *9kcal/g = 720kcal
    4000kcal - 720kcal(fat) - 1200 to 1600kcal(pro) = 2080 to 1680kcal (carbs) / 4kcal/g = 520 to 420g carbs

    What these fine fellas said, if you're dropping while watching religiously you're obviously not getting enough cals. 500 would be a good place to start and see if you at least stabilize with that.

    Running a cycle won't increase your metabolism. It will increase your nutrient partitioning and uptake so it should basically build muscle even at what would normally be maintenance kcals or slightly below. All of your food is just used more efficiently so if you're losing weight it had to be due to diet, not the roids

    Are you doing cardio?

    Add more food?

    Are you eating whole food?

    Make a big A*S mass gainer shake right before bed and chill with that, or what I do is mass gainz with almond butter and whole milk with ice in a blender.
