Couple questions. What are your lifting goals? What does your current diet look like? How is the 6'1" 250 made up? If most of the weight resides around the belt line, I would be doing you a disservice advising you to bulk.

Thank you sir, I am going to start pretty low on my lifts, mostly due to me being a beginner, so im .ot quite sure what's best to answer that question. I have broad shoulders and big bones, but I am heavy around the middle, I have very muscular thighs. That's about the best way to describe my body. I currently eat a low carb diet, I call it the half ass Keto diet.

Since you are a beginner there is no need to "bulk," you will enjoy the best muscle gains following a balanced diet at maintenance levels of calories. Get about 1g. Protein per body weight, eat healthy fats, and fruits and veggies. Follow a good program focused around multi-joint compound movements and enjoy the growth. If you eat excess calories now you'd probably just gain unwanted fat.

Thanks man, I appreciate the advice, I'm going to bring my calories back up to maintenance and set my macros based around my protein then? I just want to make sure my body doesn't decide to start converting protein for glycogen, so should my primary fuel source be carbs or fats?
Thanks again.

Just eat to satiety (eat when you're hungry), listen to your body and watch the scale to make sure you aren't undereating.

To optimize your health, ditch any multivitamin and eat 2 teaspoons of this everyday:

http://www.vitacost.com/ys-eco-bee-f...is-and-ginseng

Bee Pollen & Royal Jelly are the 2 most nutritious foods on Earth - nothing else comes even close. It is food and not a supplement, and contains every single nutrient to sustain human life all on its own.

Also eat an avocado every day. Other that, just eat smart, including greens and allow yourself 1 cheat meal per week.

In place of a multi vitamin. It is highly absorbable and is cheaper than some of the top multi's, which still do not stack up to this stuff. It contains raw honey, which stabilizes the Royal Jelly. It also tastes very good.

as an added bonus, I am quite sure royal jelly contibuted to my successful treatment of my Birdshot eye disease, when nothing else would.
