    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...

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

    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.

    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.

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

    PS - shorts are too low.

    LAWLZ I didn't even notice the shorts.

    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.

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

    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.
