I'm stuffing myself with food to maximize hypertrophy while my body is reacting aggressively. If/when I get too strong for my connective tissues, I'll reduce the calories and start burning off my visceral fat.

Subcutaneous fat loss is not a goal, but it should come as a result of my base metabolism increase.
There's a level of facility that everyone needs to accomplish, and from there
it's a matter of deciding for yourself how important ultra-facility is to your
expression. ... I found, like Joseph Campbell said, if you just follow whatever
gives you a little joy or excitement or awe, then you're on the right track.
