Cutting Diet

  1. Cutting Diet


    Just wondering if I can get some advice regarded my cutting diet that I will start in a few weeks.

    Thus far, I have planned:
    Meal 1
    2 slices flaxbread
    1 cup yogourt
    1 protein shake w/ skim milk

    Meal 2
    Chicken Breast
    1 cup brown rice

    Meal 3
    2 slices flaxbread
    1 can tuna
    1 glass skim milk

    Meal 4
    1 medium size meat portion (steak, chicken)
    1 glass skim milk
    2 cups mixed veggies

    Workout

    Meal 5
    protein shake w/ skim milk
    1 cup quick oats (60 c, 13 p)

    Meal 6
    2 full eggs
    8-10 egg whites
    cheese

    How does that sound? BTW my workout ends at 11:30 pm so meal 5 & 6 are only about 30 minutes apart, if that ... sometimes i will combine them.

    Thanks any advice is appreciated,

  2. That looks like you might be eating more carbs than protein. You need to be eating more protein and less carbs. I like 45P/30C/25F.

  3. do you have an Exact # of Carbs, Protien and Fats you are Eating (In Grams)

  4. no i dont have the exact numbers... ill get them off fitday on wednesday after my exams. This was just a rough outline of my diet which i thought had a good ratio of carbs / pro / fat. Carbs are mostly in the morning / noon and post workout.

  5. It looks good to me bro. But in order to know where you are going to need to Add or Subtract Cals then youll have to know Exactally how many you are Consuming bro!!

    Good Luck!!

  6. yes i agree. however for this cut i am going to mainly rely on cardio. gonna be running 45 mins, 5x a week at the minimum.
    thanks

  7. Cardio will Help a Ton bro Good Luck!!

  9. Looks like a lot of carbs while cutting, and I'd ditch the dairy.

    ~SC~

  10. If i removed the bread from my third meal and reduced the dairy to only my pwo shake would that be better?
    goddamn im gonna be hungry!

  11. I'm in my 4th week of a cut right now. I went from 4500cal/day to 2000 cal/day. I know all about feeling hungry. Just drink some coffee or green tea to help curb your appetite.

    Fiber should help you feel fuller for longer. That's why I rely on Oatmeal as my main carb source, it's high in fiber.

    Once the fat loss starts to plateau, try upping the carbs every 4th day to kick start your metabolism, So, 3 days lo-carb 1 day moderate carb. On the moderate carb day you might want to drop the protein a little maybe go with a 35/45/30 p/c/f ratio.

    This technique works awsome for me and is a nice break. MMmmm carbs...

  15. thanks for the reply GTOman.
    Maintenance cals for me is about 3500 so this is a fairly drastic reduction. You were right it works out to ~2600 cals. I figure that will be enough as I will be going from cardio 1x (or less) a week to 5x+.
    Do you think I should split my OATS to before and after workout instead of just afterwards?

    Pre/Post workout nutrition is a topic of hot debate, ask 10 people and you'll get 10 different answers. My personal opinion is that it's probably best after your workout, that's when your body is primed to pull in all those carbs into your muscles. See what works best for you.

    Also, you might want to try dropping your cals in stages over a few weeks, say 200-300 cals/week until you hit your target of 2600. Less stress on your body that way.
