Hey guys, so I've tried lots of things over the years and nothing seems to work so I've decided to cut down till my 6 pack shows 6%-10% bf fat range and then try to do a lean bulk. I'm currently around 20%-24% BF ish. I've been working out 4 days per week (Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday. Compounds only Upper/Lower split) My goal is to lose 1-2 lbs of fat per week. I'm currently doing HIIT 2x on Monday and Thursday right after my work out. (I'm up to 6 intervals 30 seconds on and 30 off with 5 minute warm up and 5 minutes cool down...Working up to 10-15 intervals eventually) I kept a log and was very proud of myself, but I weighed myself again today and it has gone up again to 163. Why is this happening? I cut a few calories out, tried steady cardio 1x per week on top of the HIIT 2x and my weight seems to be going back up. :'( Today, I bought reversatrol V2 in hopes of increasing test and lowering estrogen as I have a skinny fat body type....Not sure if it matters, but I did do some heavy binge drinking on Saint Patty's day which I know causes the body to retain water, but I've been drinking tons of water to flush it out all day today and was running to the bathroom like every hour-2 hours....

I'm going to add in 1 plan hamburger with cheese and no bread and switch the eggs to like 9pm.
I know the diet isn't the greatest, but is it OK for now? It was working great before....On my non work out days, I cut the sweet potato out.
