if you havent done it seriously for a prolonged period you can stil lget the same effects. even a seasoned lifter can run a recomp. jsut gotta bu super strict with your meals and watch your changes with your eyes, not the scale. im doing it right now actually. im leaner but up in weight.

I'm not the world's biggest cutting diet expert. I like to advise 30 to 40 grams of protein every 2.5 to 3 hours. And eat about 20 to 30% of your calories from fat.

Depending on how much fat you want to lose, you may or may not want to explore carb cycling. I do know several bodybuilders who cycle between low, moderate and high carb days and it seems to work well.

I would probably start at around 2400 cals per day and make adjustments up or down based on how fast or slow the weight is coming off.

Any idea about how many pounds of fat you would like to lose?

I'm in the same boat with you! 3 kids later, I'm going back into it. For me, carb cycling works really well.

Sorry I missed this response. His approach looks solid. Here is a more simplified article that might help as well:

I am only going to comment because I was in the same boat as you. Starting out I had no idea if I should cut or bulk or what. But then I quickly came to the realization that being small and looking good on the beach did not matter to me, and more important than looking good was the ability to lift massive heavy objects, it was then that I found Powerlifting/ strongman. No bulking, no cutting, no exact calorie counting, EAT, LIFT.
