6 month transition, cut then bulk

Page 2 of 2 First 12

  1. Hey man, i know you said earlier that you gradually got to this level of your diet right (assuming that from your bag of tricks haha). I was just wondering how long it took you to reach this point in your diet? I took off 1.5 weeks because of my wedding, and I plan on getting really cut by august. Do you think it owuld be wise for me to just go for the same diet, or work my way back into a good diet?

    hey buryme,

    assuming that you were on a good diet prior to the wedding, and after 1.5 weeks you are ready to continue making progress I would just go back to the same diet before. no need to gradually go down as 1.5 weeks you can treat as a very successful reset of your metabolism and your sanity. I would think of it as 1 step backward and now you can make 2 steps forward.

    hey mixedup!

    yes I am from the Bay! I haven't been to built tuff, but I see Charles Arde at the gold's I go to in campbell sometimes. I talked to him briefly i think two weeks ago and he told me to drop by and I'm planning on it.

    i'm thinking of doing a show about a month away and I have no idea how to pose. Either way, even if I don't do the show I may drop by built tuff since Charles is a really cool dude and it might be nice to go check out his training in action and get some tips.

    how bout you? Do you workout there or get trained there?

    i really like buffalo burgers from trader joe's. They are about $5 for 4 burgers, and each burger has 46 grams of protein and 12 grams of fat. I think that protein/fat ratio is comparable to chicken breast, moreover, it's beef and needless to say beef seems to be king. foreman grilling those burgers, and adding some tony cachares seasoning salt is fine. I'd say that is my go-to protein source recipe.

    as far as carbs, quaker oats quick 1 minute oats with a tablespoon of peanut butter, a splash of almond milk (maybe 1/3 cup), and a dash of salt (very important), is great when bulking, you can kill the peanut butter when you are cutting.

    Sounds good but what about delivery, going protein style, pita or something else?

    xink I didn't quite get that. Trader Joe's is a physical store near my house so I just get some of that stuff (frozen) every week or so. Protein style? do you mean the way you can get items made at fast food? I'd probably prefer that than the white bread bun.

    I eat my burgers with GABA brown rice and veggies.

  7. Those burgers sound really good, but its going to be hard for me not to throw it on a ww bun, or have some katchup. Thanks for the great sounding ideas! I am totally going to make these next week

    My bad, sorry for not explaining further. When I said, "delivery" I meant, what is it you're using to deliver the burger to your mouth, I was assuming it wasn't a regular bread bun so was wondering if you did it with a Pita, if you're doing it with nothing at all, or going "protein style" which is In and Out Burger slang for lettuce only - hold the bun.

    - 10 grams of carbs from fruit with some bcaa (tiny breakfast)

    - take shower, get ready for work about 35 minutes

    - 35-50 grams of carbs from oatmeal, either quaker 1 minute oats or weight control quaker oats. I usually would add some ground flaxseeds to this for 3 grams of fat. 1 whole egg and 6 egg whites. (real breakfast)

    - salmon + veggies (about 35 grams of protein from salmon), i don't count carbs from the veggies

    - chicken or lean beef (about 35 grams protein worth) + veggies

    - two pieces of brown rice bread (about 35 grams carbs) with a bit of almond butter, 8-10 grams fat, some whey protein (40 grams)

    -weight training, followed by some more steady state cardio at 45 minutes or jump rope for 10

    - cream of rice, about 20 grams carbs, with EAA blend (PWO meal)

    - some chicken and veggies, another 30 grams protein

    - some cottage cheese with flaxseeds, about 30 grams of protein, but cottage cheese does have some carbs. occasionally i'd skip this meal and I swear I would wake up ripped, but it felt weird to not have casein pre-bed.


    I've noticed this too when i'd skip my cottage cheese for some whey and natty pb. I also noticed when i take some sort of casein protein before bed i don't wake up as hungry. Sorry for the rant but your diet looks on point and you've got the results to show for it. Nice work!

    yea i agree entirely. i read somewhere that casein doesn't cause fullness, whereas whey does (ironic huh it digests slower). i like the idea of whey and some natty pb, it'll slow the digestion to a certain degree and I'm pretty bad with getting all my fats when cutting. i notice a very clear drop in libido once my fats go too low.

    no prob xink. whole wheat bread works well too. the burger is so good it actually tastes great by itself, allowing you to taste the details of the meat. it is almost justlike beef, but it has a nuttier taste which to me is really delicious. a bit of ketchup and protein style is a treat to me.
