I've been lifting consistently six days a week got the past 3 years. In the past year and a half I've gained no muscle. And put on fat. My diet is on point. I eat 2000 calories on a cut, with 500 or so cals of cardio, and on a bulk I eat around 4k. I eat 1.5-2 ga of protein and sufficient fat as well. I push myself in the gym and am starting to lose motivation because I'm getting nowhere, it just seems pointless. What could be the problem? I'm 5'9 and currently at 175 lbs. Any advice??

Sorry to have to say this man, but if your diet was actually on point and you were pushing yourself in the gym you would have gained some muscle and not just fat.
How's your sleeping?

We all misjudge our diet every now and again man. Maybe you need to step back and re-assess your kcals and macro's.
Sleep is just as important as your diet and training, you don't grow in the gym, you grow when you're asleep. 6 hours of quality sleep is a minimum.

Body composition is very dependant and influenced by hormones, and if you think it may be a hormonal problem I would suggest getting some basic blood work done.

Go and see an Endochrinologist and don't try and self medicate TRT. If your supplier ever gets shut down or gets some dodgy stock, your screwed. Doctors will always have a reliable, clean and pharma grade source.
Don't get me wrong, I thought about self medicating TRT but the cons outweigh the pros. I've been on TRT about three months now and I can't remember ever feeling as good as I do now. I know it's a life long committment, but I don't think I'll ever regret my decision.

I don't mean the commitment thing in a bad sense at all, it's just not a decision that can be taken lightly and you need to look into every other natutral avenue properly before you go ahead with it.

What you could do, is come off the Sustanon, wait two weeks and then start a four week PCT of Clomid and/or Nolva and maybe some Exemestane every other day to combat any estrogen rebound and help reduce any pre-existing gyno. During this time find a good Endochrinologist and set up an appointment for two weeks after you finish your PCT. And then go the proper route of getting your hormones in check and potentially onto prescribed TRT.
