So How Much Carbs Should I Eat When Trying To Lose Abdominal Fat But Keep Increasing Lean Body Mass?
So I am looking for a little advice here:
I have been underweight, skinny fat, with low muscle mass, so I had this idea to eat like its my job, bulk as much as I can, and for 6 weeks have been eating over 3500 kcal a day. I gained a lot of weight, in total 12 kg since 9 months, but much of it during the bulk. Anyway, I am now exactly 160 lb = 72.5 kg, but I gained a lot of abdominal fat in the process.
So I now have 58 kg (128 lb) lean body mass, and 14.5 kg = 32 lb fat on top of that.
9 months ago I had 50 kg (110 lb) lean body mass, and just 10 kg fat (22 lb).
So well, now I want to lose about half of my fat (16 pounds), without losing any of the hard gained lean body mass.
Is that possible?
I switched to eating 2636 kcal per day now, with exactly 50 g carbs, but I only count sugars+starch as carbs, so if I count total cabrs (which include fiber and other non-digestible stuff), the figure is 95 grams a day. Is this the way to do it, or is it too much carbs? When people mean "50 gram carbs" do they mean sugar+starch like me, or total cabs, which is meaningless I think, because much of it is indigestible (fiber, and oligosaccharides are not so digestible too).

I eat 120 grams protein per day, lift twice a week.
I eat exactly the same macros each day (not exactly the same food!), which I read is not the best idea, but I haven't got around changing that yet.
What would you advise? I just want to drop half of the fat, and then clean slow bulk from there.
