Not going to sugarcoat or make this a long story but more of a short version

My picture below speaks for itself. Basically I can't figure out why I can't drop the lower part of my abdominal area. I've tried everything from clean eating to half and half, and even hiring coach sadik hadzovic.

I've had my fair share of health issues ranging from severe Vitamin D deficiency, but I've always stayed true and consistent threw my 4-5 years of training natty. At this point I feel like I am spinning wheels indefinitely and making no noticeable changes

I would start a cut and feel great but at some point of my cut usually week 15ish I start to dramatically lose size and strength for some reason. I am a true skinny fat, and while I still remain fairly strong, I can't help but wanting to turn to test as my last ditch effort to try and add more quality lean muscle and rid lower belly fat for good.

I tried dieting to extreme weights, and that got me a sick skinny look while as you can see in the pic below I got nowhere. I can't really begin to state that I've literally tried everything 4-5+ years of experimenting and I still end up with the same result... It is starting to affect my workouts, my motivation and my sense of why I do this to begin with. I know patience is key , but I'm convinced something isn't adding up.

I am now looking towards test, as a last ditch effort to fix my physique and be happy with my progress and hard work, I still want to compete in a show at some point, but this has been so difficult for me. Watching these 18, 19, 20-24s year old kids get jacked without any effort and training natty first, is sure frustrating. I am not doing this to just look good I am doing this so I can compete and achieve something I wanted to do for over 8 years now.

Any advice would be great, ANYTHING. Maybe just maybe I can get somewhere or be pointed in the right direction. Lyle has always been a great advocate for keeping people healthy and making right choices, so I definitely value his opinion a lot.

I did a 22 week cut that consisted of 6 meals, all plain and clean meals , it was basically was a 5 low carb days and 2 high carb days, and My starting calories started from 2424 and at the end of 22 weeks ended at 2196, total weight loss was from 185lbs to 164lb, at my lowest. Did cardio x3 a week for 20 mins each session, added hit towards the end of the diet x2 a week.

My meals looked something like this.

Not sure what to do anymore.

My test levels we're at 900 NG/DL and 170 ng/DL free in 2015, so this is pretty harsh drop. Considering HRT

BOTTOM LEFT PICTURE is 2017 cutting, sorry that is a typo.
