Anyways, here’s the data: 6 months (193 days) DEXA (Images here): https://imgur.com/a/oiAAA9W with body comparisons
I’ve added my BMI and weight data during this time course here: https://imgur.com/a/hp23LTA. As you can see there are intermittent fluctuations that go pretty well with small bulk/cycles (of no particular time frame, just ate when I felt skinny and ate less when I felt bloated)

- NO CARDIO
total protein intake: approx 150g-200g/day no accounting or monitoring of carbs.
-Popeyes, 8 pack family meal, replace all dark meat with white meat breasts. No sides. Quite healthy.
-I buy a whole rotisserie chicken from a local shop and eat it with hummus , and some baklava to boot (Its like $7 for my entire meal that day)
-Go to Chipotle, order quadruple protein loaded with guac and multiple salsas. Costs about $20-22 but totally worth it and delicious. thats for OMAD days
-I will buy two whole tilapia and slow cook it. Delicious. Costs only about $7 for the day
-I buy 32 oz steak and eat it with some veggies on the side. This is more expensive depending on the cut of meat
-Slow cooked whole chicken with garlic, spice, and black bean. $5-6 for the whole chicken usually with spices
-Eat an entire 80g protein Greek yogurt with nuts, fruit, and dump in about 40 extra grams of whey protein into it. The container of greek yogurt costs about $4-5.
Alcohol: gotten some questions about ETOH, I drink socially and will go out about once per week, with no limits on alcohol use when I do.
