    not bad, why are you eating cereal pre wo? you need more veggies, cut the bread, have oatmeal instead

  7. to get some energy before workout... and i've tried oatmeal over and over again.. i cant stomach it... i even try to pretend they're grits... doesn't work

  8. your nuts man, I LOVE oatmeal...put some splenda in it, or PB, or whey protein

  9. i've tried adding extra cinnamon.. i'll try some splenda.. i think i'd puke if i put whey or pb in it.. haha

  10. but if you cannot do oatmeal, then cut out the cereal, I dont care if it cherrios or wheaties, w/e. you want slow digesting carbs and protein pre WO, instead of just a chicken breast as a meal, have chicken and some veggies, I used to have the idea of to get ripped you needed to drastically cut cals and carbs, NO, over time, YES...Rome wasn't built over night, so you have to lower cals and carbs week by week...

  11. yeah.. but luckily i have been losing weight very slowly.. even though i reduced calories bigtime.. if u were to aske me while i was bulking how much weight i'd lose off this diet i woulda figured at least 3-4 lbs a week

  12. i guess i need to learn to like veggies... ugh.. i do like butterbeans and peas.. but.. only when mom makes them.. seeing how i'm nearly 23.. i dont get that much.. haha

  13. losing weight takes time...your diet will decide how much time, get it together!

    oh i want it to be slow.. i dont want a six pack in 3 weeks but weigh 170 lbs

  15. That diet for a cut is actually pretty crap...

    That's a LOT of skim milk, and you're completely devoid of vegetables and healthy fats.

    Cardio isn't going to make you lose muscle persay... but an over-kill calorie cut will, and you have no hormone support with the low fats you're taking in.

  16. good catch Timber

  17. On point...exactly what I was thinking.

    Not exactly "super clean". To piggyback on what Timber said you want some more protein and you might want to throw some more lifting in there. What does you schedule look like? At 198 you look like you could have recomped and have gotten better results. With a sound diet and resistance training cardio may not even be needed to achieve the results you are looking for.

  19. Honestly, I'd prefer the build in the before picture.

    PS - shorts are too low.

  20. LAWLZ I didn't even notice the shorts.

    But yea, the build in the before just needs some tweaking and you are there.

    Word. I'd focus on lats and shoulders - seems as though the OP has wider hips.

    agreed. Lose that milk, add some good fats, and cereal? oatmeal, i'd even do rice, but not the cereal.

  23. EVOO SON!!

  24. I'd suggest nuts. Drinking oil is stupid on a cut... you should enjoy your kcals.

  25. no Evoo for Timber?

  26. Come on man be serious for once in your life.

  27. Throw 1TB of flaxseed oil in your protein shakes. After awhile you can barely taste it in there. Also, since you can't stomach oatmeal, throw that in your protein shakes too. Blend it up and it all goes down fast and easy.

    In general, I like to have a lean protein, a complex carb, and a fibrous carb source in each and every meal. All about balance man. If you are gonna cut carbs from a meal, do it later in the evening.

    And I agree w/ others. Kill the milk, even though it is skim, it still has sugars. MOAR veggies! Fiber is important, especially for cutting. It fills you up and keeps you regular.

    becareful with cereal lots cereals Ive found have high fructose corn syrup, check the ingredients.

    my preworkout meal is oats, cottage cheese, and peanut butter. Doesnt taste to great, but damn ive gotten some great workouts with this pre.

  29. I still don't understand why people would want to ruin a perfectly good shake with some oil...
