you seem pretty low carb, and if your job is active/on top of intense training, I would look into carb and calorie cycling.

Yeah, i dropped about 12lbs slowly over 2+ months while keeping carbs fairly low around 75g +/- .

The most important thing will be your macronutrient breakdown, though if you're on cycle protein will be higher than normal.
What is your caloric maintenance? We can go from there.
I can also tell right off the bat that your diet is too low in saturated fat. Aim for a little more.

try to maintain your protein . and have regular work out ... have some supplements that really work as I am using ninja .. its work well ..
You come in peace, but you go back in pieces

Are you certain about your maintenance? 2100 calories seems very low; my maintenance is the same as yours at a much lower bodyweight. This creates issues because the human body has protein and fat requirements. In order to hit your ideal cutting numbers of 250-270g protein and 100-120g fat, you'd essentially be forced to use a ketogenic diet because a caloric level of 2100 (1 lb weight loss per week) would only allow about 25g carbs on top of your protein and fat requirements.

Keep in mind. That yea if your gonna cut your gonna sacrifice some muscle mass. Can't expect to add 20lbs of weight an be 5% BP. Just an example. Your food list looks awesome. I think you can do extremely well with:
I like how you've incorporated olive oil in meals. Try adding it last when your cooking cuz the heat will burn it out before it sinks into your food your cooking. I'm just throwing some ideas out here. By no means am I a know it all. Try a 6 meal split through out the day. Cardio 30-45min a day. At a good moderate pace that way your not just burning all your gains. Remember your in a marathon not a sprint. Keep up great work.

What were you doing different when things were working for you?
what were you taking....thyroid issues?
Can you break it down how many meals you eat a day and what consists of..roughly you dont need to go crazy

Add in some Red Meat for sat. fat.

Yea I agree IF he stay at a decent level of intake. Yet if he's burning more than what he's consuming then yea your gonna lose some gains. I didn't not see how or how much cardio is being done. The suggestion of moderate cardio was a suggestion. Compared to if High intense cardio is/was being done. Yet if it's cutting like I thought the issue was in reference to then yea why up the carbs if you have the protein high like I stated (300+ a day) carbs should be intaken early in day before gettin in gym that way he has that as his fuel for the gym. I was just in the lines of keeping it moderate so the hard earned gains weren't just easily lost from hard work put in when bulking. He's be just as fine with the fats he listed. Adding red meat wouldn't be needed. Can easily keep it clean with eggs, fish, and chicken. Even turkey. Plus all the addition fats listed such as olive oil an such.Originally Posted by Jiigzz

I've got the same issues here but may need to just keep cutting. I was thinking of starting my recomp. I am 39 5'6" 156lbs at 12-13% BF. My maintenance is about 2400 cals. Macros: 200P 75-100C 50-60F. Refeed carbs once a week to about 200-250. Main staples:
Cottage cheese, greek yogurt, tuna, chicken, red meat 80/20, turkey, PB, Eggs, brown rice, apples, american cheese, turkey bacon, vinegarette dressings for salads, Dymatize whey isolate or all natural whey protein shakes.
Should I recomp or keep cutting to 10%? I also follow the IF protocol(Leangains.com).
