    cutting diet


    hey guys so just a quick question here is what i have planned to cut, i always get confused while cutting and have no idea why. i plan to start eating at maintenance calories for 1 week and every week after that i will drop 100 kcals until i reach where i want.

    so im 5 foot 8, 197lbs, around 12ish bf, so my TDEE is between 2700 and 2900 so im starting at 2800 for my starting point. so im going to cut at 2600/2500 kCals so it will take me 3 weeks to get there. the reason for this is so i can get used to dieting down again.

    carbs only morning, pre, post workout and no carbs after 6 pm, just veggies. obviously a clean diet.

    my macros for now:

    100-130g of fats
    130-150g carbs
    250g of protein

    My body handles fats really well and also about 200-300 kCal from fat will be MCT oil. i plan on doing this until my fat loss stalls and then i will carb cycle.

    carb cycling: 2 low 1 high carb days

    low carb 80-120g
    high carb 250-300g


    thats pretty much it, can anyone give me some input or just an ok? i always feel like i mess up on my cuts and i want to preserve as much mass aspossible but doing this naturally i know that it will be almost impossible not to lose some muscle.

    I'm no guru by any means, but if looks nice to me. I always slowly drop cals and whatnot. Only thing I ask is for you to keep us posted on your progress.

    Sure. And thanks. I always kind of tip toe on my cuts. They always come out good though, I just wanted to make sure.

    I'm looking to get single digit body fat. 7-8% , it's something I've never done before. Last summer I was 9/10% so I want to try to get lower. I may throw in leancut/stano to get a light hormone combo going to get that last few percentage points.

    If anyone wanted an update my macros have been perfect and I've never cut with this many carbs (120-150) and I think it's because now that I have more lean body mass than before my body can handle these carbs a lot better.

    I'm actually feeling tighter and I'm at 2800 kcal which isn't that low yet.


    So I'm still shocked I'm losing water /glycogen / fat at te amount of carbs I've been eating. Usually, my last cut when I was 175lbs (now 195) I could only eat 50-80g of carbs or else I'd hold water. Amazing how metabolism can change.
