Sugar is the hardest part for me. I have one heck of a sweet toothMy rules when cuttin are:
I have to stay where my caloric goal is, first.
Then low sugar.
Then no mixing fats and carbs.
My diet is structure with early carbs, and then veggies once I ve at my alotted amount.
Meal1 through 6: 50g protein per meal
Meal1-3: 50 g carbs per meal
Meal 4-6: Veggie only as carbs
Salmon with veggies
Pre workout PB or almond butter in a pre workout shake
Cashew or Almonds= 1 ounce or 28 peices
1/4 Avacado in a salad
Olive oil and vinegar for salad dressing or with stir fry (yes I do this)
So I do something like that. I change it up often. I keep my protein high on cuts and always the same. Carbs I change up so my calorie change quite a bit. I may be 2000 one day and 2200 the next. I up carbs on leg and back day.
