    You shouldn't be losing too much size with that diet. Lots of protein in there. It's either all in your head, or your cardio is too intense. Your loss of strength is mostly going to be due to low glycogen. No worries.
    Its probably in my head cause my mom says my midsection looks alot leaner and my muscles still seem pretty well defined.

    I can't ask my Mom that stuff. I get all those stupid freaking responses, "Oh, you look great just the way you are." - And then my Dad would call me "funny" if I asked him to tell me...Funny meaning gay.

    Why do you say deli meat is garbage?

    I think he's refering to the packaged meats, loaded with salt/preservatives.

    Isn't it all the same? Aren't the cuts from the deli just like the packaged stuff? - The only kind I ever buy is the low-sodium roast beef, and that's on a rare occasion. I wouldn't ever make it part of my diet.

    add in some grapefruit for breakfast
    2 Recreate + 1g L-carnitine upon rising, eat 30min later
    also, 2 RC + 1g L-carnitine 30min preWO
    BCAA support thruout workout
    get some carbs in postWO -- some brown rice, oats, or even rice cakes (the no-sugar ones, of course)
    have last feeding @1.5-2hrs prior to bed; at bedtime, take in BCAA's + 1g L-carnitine (I use 2 scoops Xtend, so 7g BCAA's)

    every 3rd day, add in a 7th meal prior to bed (no BCAA's/carnitine these nights):
    1 large banana
    6-8oz sweet potato
    2 cups broccoli
    1.5-2 cups oats
    this will keep the thyroid regulated naturally, kicking into gear on the hi-carb nights to fuel further fat-loss, while aiding recovery/muscle retention as well.
    I will make the adjustments i can but don't have the money to buy more supps right now. I have a birthday coming up at the end of the month so I will be getting some supps then but until that I am strapped. What is your reason for the grapefruit snag? Does it have added benefits to fat loss?

    Meh. I guess it's no big deal. I just don't dig all the preservatives in it. I just assume buy turkey meat and cook it up. Slice it up and shred it to make a sandwich out of it...or even a salad.

    grapefruit is my fruit of choice for cutting.
    Grapefruit is an excellent source of many nutrients and phytochemicals, able to contribute to a healthy diet. Grapefruit is a good source of vitamin C,[11][21] pectin fiber,[22] and the pink and red hues contain the beneficial antioxidant lycopene.[11][23] Studies have shown grapefruit helps lower cholesterol[11][24] and there is evidence that the seeds have high levels of antioxidant properties.[25] Grapefruit forms a core part of the "grapefruit diet", the theory being that the fruit's low glycemic index is able to help the body's metabolism burn fat.[26]
    hell, you might even want to try the beef & grapefruit diet for awhile, till those supps can be put in place.
    8oz lean 93% or leaner beef + 1/2 grapefruit, 6x daily.
    run it for 5-7 days, see what happens..

    I wouldn't live off it, for sure..

    no doubt, the best choice is your fresh cuts of meat..cook some up and pre-pack portions for a couple days at a time.
    can of tuna works and a couple eggs works well for a 'go' meal too.

    That SuperCuts 3 has the grapefruit extract in it. I'd prefer the blueberries + Graperfruit extract over just the grapefruit.

    Doesn't something in grapefruit have to do with repartitioning nutrients? For some reason I thought i remembered a supplement with grapefruit something or other in it.

    grapefruit has a whole host of benefits..
    has an impact on metabolism..
    contains HCA, which is in a boatload of fat-burners..

    HCA is an acronym for Hydroxy Citric Acid. Its purported effects are to inhibit the conversion of fat by blocking the enzyme ATP citrate lyase and to decrease appetite. Garcinia Cambogia is the standardized herb of HCA. Naringin is NOT the same as HCA (carcinia cambogia) but it is isolated from grapefruit. Naringin is an inhibitor of an enzyme that is responsible for metabolizing caffeine and has been shown to possibly prolong caffeine's fat burning effects.

    a little background on 'the grapefruit diet':
    Though the grapefruit diet originated in the 1930s, it came to popularity in the 1970s, when it was erroneously propagated through Xeroxlore as "the Mayo Clinic Diet", though the Clinic has no connection to the diet and how the connection started is unclear. The diet significantly limits the amount of fruits and vegetables one eats while encouraging meat intake; the combination of these high-fat, high-cholesterol foods with grapefruit is claimed to burn fat. Although the number of days in the diet varies, it generally involves a set number of days on the diet followed by two "break" days.[1] It was re-popularized in the 1980s and nicknamed the "10-day, 10-pounds-off diet".[7]

    A 2004 study funded by The Florida Citrus Department[5] found that participants lost an average of 3-4 pounds over 12 weeks by eating half a grapefruit or drinking grapefruit juice with each meal and exercising regularly; many participants lost more than 10 pounds.[8] It was hypothesized that the grapefruit reduced insulin levels, encouraging fat loss.[5] However, the study involved a healthy diet with the addition of grapefruit, in contrast to a normal "grapefruit diet".[3]

    I ate grapefruit every morining and in the afternoon in my last cut, and I got pretty effing ripped!! Of course the rest of my diet, cardio,training, and supplements were on point, but I would have thought the sugar in the grape fruit would be counter productive. SILLY ME! LOL

    Needless to say, when ever I do my next cut (been starting every monday so far but still need to start) I will def eat grapefruit during my next cut (when I finallly get my lazy arse motivated). By the way hman, allready looking! (no homo!)

    Lol sorry man I haven't linked anyone What do you mean by androgens making shoulder pop? Just cycles in general? It seems they get enough work from my inclines so i just said I would try a while without doing them. I might throw some side raises after chest sometimes but that be it.

    Yeah I was just playing around but in general there are more androgen receptors in the shoulders and upper back (if I remember correctly). This is why you will see stare roid users with huge traps/shoulders. It tends to even out though.

    You seem to be making some solid progress though.

    Thanks man. Legs are actually finally starting to get up with the upper body. My legs are bastards when it comes to gaining size(nothing like yours Irish). I will post a pic later of zee wheels. On another note progress isn't going awesome because i have been eating too many carbs while working but I have too. This is my last week doing this job. I start school next week and I am always on point with training and diet when school is going . I am excited for the school. You guys will be seeing a lot of progress starting next week. I am hoping to be sitting at 8% by end of September. I think that is extremely possible.

    Well damn, thanks! I'm glad my results could help motivate someone!! And thanks IC also! But any who, you are looking effing swole bro!! Great size and fullness, and leaning out nicely.
