I peaked at 196 and my work pants would not fit. I intentionally lost weight, and am now down around 183 or so (+10 from my start point way back in March). Strength was maintained through this, and I lost the fat I had gained.
I've been running on an average of 2400 calories a day. About 10/30/60 Carb/Pro/Fat. So nothing like the Zone at all. Back during the mass gain I was at 4-5000 calories a day. Ridiculous.
I'm bumping up to nearly 3000 a day (average) next week. I'm going to just focus on strength numbers for the rest of '07, and maybe run another mass gain cycle in early '08.
