I've been trying to cut fat / gain muscle since July now and am defo more strong looking. People keep telling me I've lost weight etc, and I can see it in my face and clothes.

Now.. as I start training for strongman I am concious that a defecit is no good anymore. I've not logged my food but my old habits are creeping back.. puddings and sweet stuff.

My questions are about whether the PL type of diet of 'clean' is best for strongman and what calories I should be looking at?
I am pescetarian (was veggie but added fish in recently for protein). And take protein supplement (whey).

My calories have been 1580 till the last couple of days - I think my maintenance is around 1800 as I'm 5'3" and 81kg

Thanks for any advice. :) I'd love to feel stronger without feeling fat if it's at all possible. :)
