    Plateaued, please help

    Hello, Iím new to this board and see you are very proficient in the body comp. I want to introduce myself as kjun, a 37yr old male that has been in the oilfield all my life. Iíve worked out on and off since high school but the last year or so Iíve been doing consistent workouts 5 days a week with 2 days cardio. Stats began at 6í2Ē 348lbs, roughly 25% body fat, body frame is very broad shoulders and thick in the chest area also very thick legs, good genetics also that come along with it. Unfortunately I just let everything go over the years but made a promise to myself of being in the best shape Iíve ever been in by the time 40 comes. Iím now down to 303-307 from ketoing and watching my intake of sugars and carbs over the past year. However now Iím plateaued fr the last month and about to lose my mind, still working out and cardio on elliptical because of knee and hip surgery from a wreck. Iím eating around 2000 cal a day of clean food, but Iím doing everything I can to not lose my lbm while cutting down. Iím worried if I drop my cal intake, Iíll begin really losing muscle so Iím trying to play the best of both worlds. Iíve been on trt the last 4 years so thatís currently in my system right now also with eq 600mg a week. So now my questions are below
    -Would carb cycling be better now that Iíve plateaued vs ketoing?
    -Have I went to low on carbs and put my body in starvation mode?
    -If I bump my calorie intake back up to 3600 and start over with going cal deficient?
    Iím looking for your suggestions, right now my macros are 247G carbs, 247G protein, 55G fats however no I find it very boring to measure food so I donít do that
    Typical daily menu consist of
    -Breakfast 4 pieces of bacon with a egg or 2
    -Lunch after wo is 3 grilled chicken breast or grilled shrimp salad with ranch
    -Supper 2 boneless chicken thigh or chicken breast or grilled fish fillet or 1 porkchop and salad(most night meals have a salad included)
    I know this is long but wanted to give truthful details of my daily life, I really look forward to hearing your comments or recommendations


    Thanks

    Iíd try dropping another 100 or so calories from carbohydrates for a week and see if that can get you losing again or increase your cardio to put yourself further into a deficit. Have you ever tried Internittent fasting?

    You are not eating enough..
    Your body has adapted to the low caloric diet.
    I would increase cals slightly (100-300 daily) and keep a tight log on food intake and weight and adjust accordingly.
    Good luck.
