So this is me currently. I haven’t taken my measurements yet, but I feel really goos about where I’m at. I spent most of the winter “bulking” 😂. Basically, eating around 2200-2500 calories a day, 140g of protein daily, lifting heavy, and focusing on growing muscle.
Current weight: 138
Body Fat: 21%
New goal: I already started this as of March 1st, but basically keep maintenance calories, maybe a little wiggle room occasionally. For me, that’s about 1850-2000 calories a day, I’m keeping the same 140g of protein for now, and probably will maintain it. I begin my cutting phase April 1st. Which won’t be a drastic cut. Basically to support any possible growth of lean muscle mass until then.
This is my first time ever cutting for a competition, and I’m doing it 100% on my own. 😱 I know that’s unheard of, but I’ve been doing this for a long time, and have guided myself through many successful cuts/diets.
So, I’ll check in April 1st, bikini and all 🤗.

For more information on creating your own macro plan, please take a look at Bodybuilding.com. I may write a post or series on creating a workout split and macro plan for yourself soon, until then, Bodybuilding.com still serves as the best resource on the internet for all things related to cutting, bulking, macros, etc.
