If you've ever completed a long cut, you know that by the time you're done you're ready to eat a house and more. Whenever you push your body past your body-fat set points (getting to new body-fat lows), your body responds by increasing the hunger feeling. The best thing you can do after finishing your fat-loss phase is to slowly build your metabolism back up. Let's say, for example, that at the end of your cut, you're taking in 220g of protein, 150g of carbs, and 45g of fat. Those are the numbers it'll take to maintain your current physique look. If you add 10% to your carbs and fat every week or every week and half, within a couple of months, your macro numbers would look something like this: 220g protein, 350g carbs and 70g fat. By slowly adding the calories back in, you help your body adjust to each new calorie level. It's not uncommon for bodybuilders to maintain their contest shape while doing this. In addition to the benefit, you'll also improve your metabolic capacity and your ability to handle more macros.
