What do y'all think i should do. Currently I am at a body fat where my abs are not visible and my love handles look bigger than they did 10 pounds heavier ago. I look smaller but I do notice a little bit more veins. When i try to put my calories lower i lose allot of muscle and strength when i put them higher I gain fat and only minimal muscle. I am going crazy. I think my body got accustomed to eating low calories. As if i eat my BMR with the bennedict formula i gain weight... I eat clean almost protein only and carbs only in the morning and post workout with some fruits for glycogen. Now the question is what cycle can i do to make me gain a bit of muscle and lose allot of fat and maybe get into single digit bodyfat levels. Also how would the diet look like in this cycle? Thanx in advance everyone. also what direction should i steer cutting or bulking. Also my photo is in my profile, someone point me in the right way

Prev cycles. Test deca, and sustanon only cycle.
Did you do a proper PCT with the test and sust cycles? Not tryin to sound like a punk, but you don't look like you held on to much of those gains with strong cycles...
Sounds like you really need to get a handle on your diet before poppin off on another cycle. Fat loss is not something you need steriods for. I think you probably overstarve yourself while cutting, and jack up your metabolism. Consequently I would suggest you eat more frequently - and avoid white flour, refined sugars, and fried foods.
Your body needs carbs while you are trying to maintain and build LBM - particularly after your workout.
Single digit body fat is quite aways away. You need a lot of dedication and hard work, but you can certainly get it done.
i'm not sure how your body responds to cardio. but if i were you i would eat (like you said) above your BMR that you have figured out there, and add 2 to 3 days of light cardio to keep the fat down. you also have to deceide something, do you want to cut or bulk? it's kind of hard to do both, unless you consider "lean bulking".
Wow thanx guys for the fast responses. This site is great. Well to answer your question I do want to cut because all the size i gained from the 2 cycles i lost from starving myself and ended up looking fatter and weaker. So now i finally want to remove all the fat. Any help on cutting u guys could give me i would love thanks. What steps should i take now. BTW my bmr with activity level acquainted for is 2250.
Oh yeah, timberlakers ur right i need allot of hard work and dedication. But I have the desire to do it so ima try my ass off.
Yes, and it would also be helpful to see what your PCT was... Sounds like you did not hold on to your gains from 2 cycles. If you do it wrong again, this cycle of looking "fatter and weaker" will continue.
