    If your small and you know you lack muscle you would diet to nothing
    It would be better to add size and strength so next time you cut down you can get rid of the skinny fat look
    Dieting for over a year is a long time to put your metabolism in the gutter

    Eat and grow and stay in a small caloric surplus

    Try to post a recent picture with you. It will help to see better the whole situation.

    At that height and weight probably you have a small bone structure.

    You have to begin a weight training program to see much better results from all points of view. Otherwise you will not look very good and healthy.

    Now, 1 year later since I started, my weight is 177 lbs. During the process I've gotten compliments of how much better I was looking, but now people are saying I can't lose more fat and that it would look unhealthy. My face is really "thin" but the point is my body is still fat and doesnt look much different since I started, but people dont notice this because of the clothes. Also I've always wondered if I got gynecomastia, but I don't feel any tissue so it's probably just fat.

    But I'm not really sure what to do. Is it even healthy for me to lose more weight? I want to get lean but my weight is at a point I should've already been lean I think? I started lifting two weeks ago, also aiming for a 10% caloric deficit.

    1. Do you think I have gyno, or is it fat?
    2. How do I get leaner in my situation, continue with caloric deficit?
    3. What would you do if you were me.

    Help is really appreciated I want to be become the best version of myself :-(
    My question is, what is your body fat percentage now

    If you've only been lifting for a couple of weeks there's probably not much muscle hidden under there. Might be worth spending some time training and eating high protein and slightly over your maintenance to get some muscle built before cutting again.

    What is/was your diet like?

    The link furthest down in my opening post is a recent picture of me.

    I'm not sure what my body fat % is right now, I'll do a new test soon hopefully. I weighed 86 kg when I did last test and 81 kg now, and have barely done any muscle training since then (the 2 weeks I mentioned) if thats any help.

    At the moment I calculated my TDEE to approx 2700 calories. I try to eat 2400 daily with approx 40% protein 40% carbs and 20% fat. Less carbs on the days I'm not training. Have to be noted though that this "regime" of eating (counting calories and macros) also is something I just started, at the same time I started lifting. Before that I was just eating less tbh and whatever I wanted while doing cardio. Wasn't strict by any means. I had progress but it felt slow.

    Might be placebo but I already feel better since the first two weeks. High protein etc and tracking macros/calories seems to be doing the trick. I've also improved my chins by doing them daily.

    The program I'm following is called Greyskull LP. Slightly modified.
    Workout A:
    OHP 2x5, 1x5+
    Squat 2x5, 1x5+
    Curls 2x12

    B:
    Incline Bench, 2x5, 1x5+
    Deadlift 1x5+
    Tricep pushdown 2x12

    Chins / push ups every day, fasted walking 30 mins before workout days and cardio in between.

    Typical week:

    Monday:
    Fasted walk
    Workout A
    Chins/Push ups

    Tuesday:
    3 km run
    Chins/Push ups

    Wednesday:
    Fasted walk
    Workout B
    Chins/Push ups

    Thursday:
    8x100m sprints
    Chins/Push ups

    Friday:
    Fasted walk
    Workout A
    Chins/Push ups

    Saturday:
    5km run
    Chins/Push ups

    Sunday:
    Off

    Does it look fine?
    I see you are suggesting slight caloric surplus. Will this make me look much worse or can I still improve looks by doing this? I'm just so afraid it will hurt my motivation after getting better every day for 1 year, and then suddenly starting to look worse again :-(

    Dieting wont aid you much ATM if you lack muscle size, muscle mass, and strength
    Why are you doing pushups and chins everyday? Why not just follow the program as outlined since you said you are very new to training?

    Fasted cardio has very little merit in the grand scheme of things.

    Why not just go on a proven novice routine, focus on eating a slight surplus, and your body will recomp given how new you are to lifting and making sure you are dedicated and consistent to meeting a slight surplus of kcals, and focus on proper form, time under tension and range of motion on your lifts.

    The skinny fat look will go away once you build your frame, add size, and then cut down in the future with muscle to show.

    No, it doesn't look fine as long as you do push ups and chin-ups every day.

    The Greyskull LP it's a good program for a begginer like you IF it is followed in a good maner and not wrong modified.

    And don't be so afraid of a negative modification: a little caloric surplus will not make you fat, just a more muscular and healhty guy.

    Edited slightly...

    Or to put it another way you found a brilliant program and decided instead to do whatever the hell you want. I bet you'll be moaning in a few month that greyskull hasn't worked for you. Guess what, you didn't do it.

    Buy the ebook, read it, do it.
