A bit of background around me. I am a 26 years old male, height 178cm. Since I was a kid I have always been overweight, and in my early 20s I became obese (approx 96kg). A couple of years ago, I went a stringent diet (1,500kcal/day, no carbs other than those in vegetables) for a year plus exercise and got all the way down to 66kg.
Last summer I tried putting on some muscle by training resistance/strength at the gym 4x/week and eating at a surplus (approx. 3000,kcal/day) but really I think I only put on fat. (I went up from 70ish kg in spring to 77 a couple of months ago) Since lockdown, I have been eating at a deficit and moving to cardio (3x10km runs/week) and am now down to 73.1kg.
I guess my ideal weight is about 71kg, so should be able to achieve that in the next month. My question is where to from there? I look 'skinny fat' (Ie: Very thin arms, but belly fat...) Not sure how to improve.
