Take appetite control supplements or change the food you keep around the house so the food you do it isn't going to do much harm. I'd also suggest more cardio so on binging (cheating) days you at least burn some of it off.Applied Nutriceuticals Representative

give3 us an example of you diet we can figure out where you are going wrong, make sure theres enough fat in the diet, (Slows absorbtion of food making you fuller longer, releases CCK which tells the hypothalamus your not hungry anymore)

Well, first is the fact that most diets don't work...meaning that they may work great in the short term, but are not sustainable. What is needed is a lifestyle change in diet, one that is maintainable and works good. That's why I am an avid fan of the Zone. You can check out the 1st link below for good links for more info, pics, and recipes. There is also a link in that thread that speaks really well on diet as a whole. Also, the 2nd link is a an article titled "You are not wired for progress". It's a good read and explains in an interesting way and from a coaches point of view why many of us need some sort of structure to help us.

i think u shouldn't start off a complex diet for now.. maybe you should only use CKD once you're at 11% bf and wana go down to 9% or something.
pick a simple and easy-to-follow diet and stick to it for 4 weeks or so..
even a diet such af 40-40-20... 40% protein, 40% carbs, 20% fat.
throw a light cheat meal once a week.
Add a fat burner supplement.
Keep your calories in deficit for let's say 5 days and then keep it on a slight surplus for 2 days.
The other thing is.. you wont see results in 2 - 3 days. You'll probably see results in 3 - 4 weeks... some people see results in 2 - 3 days but hell with them and their genetics.
Diet, workout, supplements, patience

most people don't have concept of 'diet' anyway. imo there is no reason why you can't be satisfied food wise and still cut fat. its not the fact you eat too much...the problem is you eat too much of the wrong food. sure some genetically handle carbs, fats, ect better than others...you just need to adjust accordingly and that my friend is a mental barrier not a genetic one! the best suppressant is food itself!

its tough to cut but you gotta try and resist that temptation. dont give in and you can allow yourself one cheat meal a week. dont be too strict but also.. remind yourself its worth it in the end. that hard work you strive for will pay off guy

Simple simple solution. Forget about diets for 2 weeks. eat the way you want to eat, and how feels normal to eat. Track it all here in the diet counter or in fitday, then come back with what you've got from that and we'll work out a cutting diet that will work.

Stims outside of the really crazy stuff ie illegal really wont make that huge a difference. I would estimate that you are lucky to get more than a couple hundred cals a day difference if you stay jacked up half the day.

Like others have said, set aside one day in the week that you eat more than usual, and have a meal of whatever you want. This helps me with food cravings a lot, and is even beneficial to your body.
There are several fat loss/ appetite suppressing supplements that you could look into taking. They may even help lower your cravings.

I was miserable a couple weeks into my last cut,... cardio sessions, workout, and @ work. I found my diet was too clean,( i was using stims,/appetite supps) .. so I upped my carbs to combat lethargy, and added in more cardio as a result. Cardio was 5-6 days a week,.. low intensity 4-5 miles a day, to combat muscle breakdown and in morning( on empty stomach) . Seemed to work for me.
