Ok, make it short. Many years in bodybuilding, never completed, but last summer I was in a very good shape, 220, 5'11", nice and. Then I kinda let the clean eating go for a while and suddenly got fat( in my term fat is 14%, where abs barely show). So I got mad and go on a serious cut for the past 2 months, mostly keto diet with some carbs reload when needed. 60min. Cardio a day plus high reps weights 5x a week. Well it worked as my fat is gone, but as usual I got skinny, lost plenty of lean mass, I am now 198. It's time to clean bulk and try get back into 220ish by June. How would u transition from this highly catabolic state to eating plenty of carbs and doing little cardio without getting fat? I want to mantainance my body fat, which calipers saying 7%, well, abs nice and showing now. Don't ever want to slack again and having to go thru this again. So how would u adjust ur diet and cardio in order to gain back good amount of misled staying as mean as possible?( I don't mind putting on a little bit of fat to gain some good size, but I said A LITTLE BIT) Cause I'm afraid my metabolism really slow, as I'm functioning at 1600 calories a day, where to build mass I need at least 3500 with 400gr or more of carbs, I'm a naturally skinny hardgainer........
