Problems getting low body fat
I have been working on getting my body fat down for awhile now, but seems i have come to a spot where my weight just seems to stick. I gain size really easy but losing weight is extremly hard. im down to around 9 to 10 percent bf right now but trying to lose those extra percentages seem to be not happening. I came up with the idea of maybe increasing my calories for the next 4 days to let my metabalism speed up again and then go back to my cut. Does this seem like somthing that will help.

The best thing re diet that I would recommend for fat loss is calorie/carbohydrate cycling (i.e. 2-3 days below Maintenance and 1-2 days above Maintenance).
You can always add in some extra cardio as well, preferably HIIT, if it is not already included in your training.

i read that article and it says add carbs to every meal. i thought one should limit carb intake to in the morning and try to down as little carbs in the afternoon. I take in my carbs with a cup of oats in the morning, pre and post workout. So should i also add in more carbs at lunch and dinner?

Whether you add carbohydrates to every meal is up to you. You do not necessarily have to add them to your meals post-mid-afternoon, but do make sure that you include fat and protein in them.
Remember that if you have LOW carbodyrates (<50-100g/day) it should only be a short-term thing, and that you CAN lose bodyfat WITH them.
Everyone has to find what works and is right for THEM.

BCAAs and EC and low grade cardio for half an hour first thing in the AM on an empty stomach and watch the fat come off and the muscle stay on.
Simple but you have to be disciplined to do it 3 or 4 times a week.

Have you increased your training intensity as you lost bf? sometimes people stick with the same amount of intensity just as people stick with the same amount of calories in a diet but you need to make adjustments as you lose weight.

Ive attached a great article on fat loss. For those of you that know or may not know, the information that the Colgan Institute puts out is solid. They have the largest database in the world on sports nutrition and then some. Excellent stuff.
