Welcome to the forum.

What amount of calories are you eating, and how did you arrive at this number?

This may be a bit if a shot in the dark, but if you are wheelchair bound, you may have some body mass that is a bit atrophied/less active due to nerve injury, etc.

If your calorie intake is based on total body weight, but some of your body weight is not using as many calories as expected, try getting a more accurate body composition number (lean body mass vs. fat%) and use that as a basis for your calorie estimate.

More simply, just reduce your calories by 5-10% for a few weeks at a time until you hit a good maintenance number.

Also, even though a gram of protein and a gram of carbs have the same calories, the carbs can cause an insulin response which has a hormonal effect that can prompt fat storage whereas protein does not.

I'm a Wheelchair Bodybuilder so some things very from a Able body like my macro's nutrition (grams of: Pro, Carbs, Fat per day). This is due to legs burn 2-3 times the calories to function than arms.

I do the macro counting vrs the calories so I know exactly how much and were my nutrients are coming from.

I supplement a lot to make up for low calorie/food in take due to being in a wheelchair vrs what my body needs and burns. Here is a list of my bulking supplementation:

Wake Up:
AAEFX Kre-Celazine
AAEFX Test Charge
AAEFX CZM
BCAAs
AAEFX Nytric Pro

Breakfast:
Garlic 1000 IUs
V-D3
AAEFX HBM
AAEFX V&M

30 min pre A work out:
AAEFX K-Otic
AAEFX Kre-Alkalyn

A work out:
Bottle Capps (pure Dextrose)
BCAA's

Post A work out:
AAEFX HBM
AAEFX NF-Pro
Garlic 1000 IUs
AAEFX Kre-Alkalyn

30 mins pre meal:
AAEFX Nytric Pro
Lunch:
V-E
Garlic 1000 IUs
AAEFX V-3
AAEFX V&M

Pre work out B
AAEFX K-Otic
During Workout
BCAA's
Bottle Caps (Pure Dextrose)

At later meal or post B work out :

Rich mentions in one of his log posts that he consumes 1600 cals when cutting.

Hope that helps. Just take a read through his logs and you'll get a lot of information but the piece I highlighted above is worth considering when you are working out your calorie intake in relation to your weight.
