So you have a pretty good idea on what calories and macros are in portion sizes dependent upon the food item, then? A lot of persons do this methodically in the head and do very well with it (instead of keeping records each day, like I do). If you are more interested in not getting any size increases, and not worried about the minor and small variances (that types of macros can bring), and do well with portion control, the main issue then is just making sure your not running a calorie surplus for long....trend periods as this will eventually lead to what you....personally do not want (keeping things equal as what this tissue gain may be).

Wish you much success in everything you personally want, young man.

That sums it up fairly well. Not very complicated once you think it through, I suppose.

I don't think any one of us here is like the average.

Thanks again!
