    Summer is still a couple of months away and your metabolism is raging anyways. If you feel like you're getting fatter then adjust your macros, otherwise I wouldn't be surprised if you leaned out by summer anyways.

    Usually once summer comes I'll start trimming down just because I'm so much more active and outside than during the winter, without any adjusted diet.

    recomp. get your calories like 200-250 below maintenance...keep protein high...carbs moderate, and fats high. do cardio a few times a week...you can add a few lbs of lean mass and shrink down the body fat

    because you can't starve your body and make lean gains. if he was on an all out cut then yea, you could have a high protein, low carb AND low fat diet. But the body needs energy from somewhere. If its not taking in carbs, it will use the fats as energy, mostly at rest is when your body is using fat as energy anyway. Carbs are just for intense energy such as lifting.
    Go look at marc lobliner's diet (owner of scivation) hes a big advocate of only having carbs around a workout.
    plus monounsaturated fats raise test levels naturally, and are a good source of cals
