Do you want to lose or gain weight?
Set a goal weight.
Count calories, workout and achieve that goal weight.
Are you as fit as you want to look?
If yes, then keep doing what you're doing.
If weight keeps dropping, add more calories to your daily diet until you steady out at where you were.
If weight keeps adding, drop more calories from your daily diet until you steady out at where you were.
If no, it's macro time.
Start with a diet that's 60% carbs, 20% fat, 20% protein.
Give yourself up to about six months so see how this affects your body composition.
Are you as cut as you want to be?
If yes, keep doing what you're doing.
If not, reduce your calories little by little until you get the cut you want. Again, give this up to about six months.
A Note on Macro Cuts
It's during Phase 6 that you can start experimenting with different macro ratios to see how it affects you personally. Maybe you work better with lower carbs and higher fats. Maybe you need a bit more protein. No one can tell you your ultimate ratio except you -- and that means a lot of trial and error.
