I simply ate 500 over on lifting days and 500 under on non lifting days, ensuring that I got at least 200g protein and 100g of fat a day filling the rest with carbs. It worked, but I would much rather cut and bulk now. If I was massively skinny fat I would recommend the recomp. i was very skinny fat and it worked well.
I like the idea of alternating only carbs to change your caloric intake depending on whether it's a training day or not. When I go to maintenance once I reach my cutting goals I'll still only be eating carbs after training on training days.
Currently training for raw competition.
