help with recomping my body
I recently went on a "bulking cycle" where I ate 5000 cals a day and 400 grams of protein mostly from weight gainer shakes and went from 220 at 15% bf to 240 at 25% bf I since then have made decent changes to my diet and I'm following a template that iread on a thread called "the bulking primer" and I'm only using two shakes a day and am doing 6 normal whole food meals every 2 hours. I'm eating a lot of healthy fats and have dropped my caloies by 1k to 4000 cal on workout days and in the 3000's on my non workout days. I recently changed my workout routine from DC to wendlers 5/3/1 do to feeling like I wasn't ready and also feeling more fat and less strong. I'm doing HIIT on a treadmil 2 min med speed 30 seconds full speed 1 minute recovery for 10 mins strait. I do that twice weekly to help get back in shape. I'm currently supplementing tonalin cla, fish oil, ON gold standard whey, and dextrose+maltodextrin for postworkout carbs I've also ordered eviscerate smolder topical fat burner for my stubborn belly fat. I know this is a long post but I'm in desperate need of some help and would like anyones opinion and or thoughts about what I should do to turn my body more lean and strong

So given all that, you didn't mention what you think your bodyfat is at now, and what your primary goal is. You are using a (goofy) diet made for a lean bulk, but it sounds like you want to lose fat more. It is FAR easier, and FAR faster to pick one of the two goals of adding muscle or loosing fat and approach them separately. Your earlier bulk sounds like it was mostly misguided, but not totally unsuccessful. If you have a certain leanness in mind, you are probably best off losing the fat till that leanness, then slowly lean bulking up to the size you want.

I want to lose fat but not strength. And damn lol that's what always happens when I google something. I want to recomp more than anything I hate cutting and end up losing only muscle so its not even an option. Please can u help by posting a sample diet on a link. Something along the lines of what a healthy 6ft2 240lb guy should be eating to stay and shape and build lean mass? I'm training with 5/3/1 right now and just want the strength gains without losing size. Please post me a CORRECT diet I'm tired of following what I read from idiots.

Real world, its far far far easier/better to start with how you'd like to eat and what is easiest / convenient for you to eat, and then modify it to make it work.
And not that the diet is bad, but its unncessary to go to eating every 2 hours, and unnecessary to separate fats/carbs. You could follow that pretty successfully. You could also follow a 2 or 3 meals a day pattern and be as successful.

So far I'm eating pretty good but have been keeping calories low as it was hard to have them high on that diet.
2 packets strawberry oatmeal
4 whole eggs
1 scoop whey protein
1 cup white lowfat milk
62 protein, 690 calories, 72 carbs, 25g fat
1 can Tuna
1 tbsp olive oil
27 protein, 250 cal, 2 carbs, 16 fat
2 scoops whey
2 servings malto dextrin powder
48 protein, 620 cal, 94 carbs, 2 fat
3/4 cup brown rice
68 protein, 737 cal, 96 carbs, 9 fat
Pre dinner meal
8oz chicken breast
Veggies usually broccoli
50 protein, 268 cal, 4 carb, 4 fat
8oz flank stea
1 cup spinach
48 protein, 368 cal, 4 carb, 14 fat

well, thats an awful lot of whey for my liking. And the maltodextrin is a bit much postworkout if your goal is fatloss. Would be better to have the preworkout meal contain some brown rice or something, that would help with the workout more.

Would it be wise for me to use Neovar recomped while on my recomp? Or will I get too bloated like with other creatines

Its pretty nonbloating, so it would be a good choice

I have used a ton of different things for cutting, gaining, and cutting again.
The 2 that have made the largest difference to date are glycobol, and slin-sane. I will try need2slin when nutra gets it back in stock.
Other then those ec/at2/erase all work pretty good for the fat loss.
Gonna do another lean bulk for the next month , then do a nice month cut. Hoping to get to 160 but be solid !

I used slin sane and didn't notice any difference. The only nutrient partitioner I've used that worked was anabolic pump
