I'm gonna HARD second this. I tried to maintain ~8% for a few months and wanted to die. Let myself go back around 12% and I feel phenomenal and I don't remember crushing life this hard in a LONG time.

That being said, summer's coming up and your boy misses his six pack. I'm a hypocrite. Gain some fat man.

Thanks for the input man. This seems to be the general consensus.

But for now, good luck on the 6 pack

That's one more thing I need to consider: I have been eating a high protein/high carb/low fat diet for the past few months or so. Hunger was bad before on a diet with lower carbs, but I don't think it was as bad as the high carb diet.

Those experiences reflect mine as well. Long time I ago I tried ultra low fat diet with tren. 400 to 450g each p and c with 20 to 30f. Terrible.

Fat is a crucial macronutrient.

And just plain bland. Been there too. There’s only so much chicken breast a person can eat and it limits even the leanest cuts of beef. If you don’t like egg whites be ready for lots of protein shakes.
