    Recomp diet and Cycle - detailed


    Starting a recomp on monday and getting everything together, I weight about 177 lbs now at 5'6". My maintenance cals are around 2745 according to online calculators. Not sure to put this here or in anabolics

    Breakfast: 1 cup oatmeal, 3 whole eggs, 3 egg whites

    Lunch 1: 200gram rice + 200gram chicken breast with veggies and some little sauce

    Lunch 2: 200gram rice + 200gram chicken breast with veggies and some little sauce

    Post work out: 2 scoops whey + 80 grams dextrose

    Dinner: 4oz whole grain penne + 8oz 90% burger

    Before bed: musclemilk

    That comes out to about 2867 cals 334 grams carbs, 251 grams protein, 62 grams fat.

    plan to lift 4-5 days and do cardio 5-6 days

    My cycle is (cycle support 4 hours after PHs, SERM PCT)

    Hdrol 50/75/75/75/75/75
    Furuza 0/0/250/250/250/250
    11 oxo: 0/0/0/0/0/500/1000/1000/1000

    I think I need more protein, and cals in general to gain some muscle while losing fat, any recommendations? I was also unsure about the dextrose but decided to go the insulin spike route. Hows this all look?

    That's more than enough protein to cover any mass gains. You should probably add more healthy fats in terms of natural peanut butter, almonds, walnut, pecans. And I don't think you should go any higher on calories to start.

    I love almonds and natty pb, just not sure where to put them in. I know its a small thing. I have been big on whole wheat toast with natty PB in the past.

    I will add almonds in with my rice/chicken stir fry meals for sure

    Add some to the oatmeal, and have some with the muscle milk before bed.

    I added 1 serving of natty PB too both my before bed shake and breakfast, then 1 serving of almonds to both my lunch meals.

    That brings my cals to around 3607, 40% carbs, 30% protien, 30% fat. Is that too much fat for my recomp goals?

    That's not too much fat but probably is too much in total calories. Maybe clip the carbs by a bit

    I agree on dropping the carbs, so I lowered my two rice dishes to 150grams and my whole grain penne to 3 oz, that lowers my calories to 3394 (312C, 271P, 123F)

    I'm worried about losing to much because I will being cardio almost 5-6 days a week and lifting 3-5 days a week and that burns a good amount of cals.

    Should I reduce or eliminate my dextrose and insulin spike? I think using it will be very beneficial to preserving muscle and making sure the protein is quickly transported to where it needs to be post workout.

    If its helpful I can upload my revised diet with the reductions in rice/pasta and increases in natty pb and almonds

    Drop the dextrose, if your really want to do it for whatever illogical reason, do about 20g post-wo as it will be plenty enough, 80g of refined nutrientless sugar is a bit much. Also you could use more veggies and fruit overall.

    Why do you think the dextrose is a bad/illogical idea?

    Sorry I did not mention that I am using a veggie blend with my rice and chicken meals, a good amount. Dont have exact measurement yet but about a cup of veggies each time.

    Id like to see you eating more veggies and fruit above 2 cups a day. But only because your body will refill glycogen within 24 hrs and so you will be fine. Also carbs arnt needed to spike protein synthesis. They are empty calories, a piece of fruit with your whey will be just as good.
