    Trying to cut down before i bulk. suggestions?


    Okay, so I have done some research and i really do not know a whole lot about cutting, but I am trying to cut before I bulk. I have 5 months to both cut and bulk before I go on my trip to cabo. Cutting before bulking Seems like a better path to me. Anyways, I have come up with possible supps and exercise program and diet. I am very very very new at this, so all critiques and suggestions will be taken in with great consideration. I would also like to keep my strength up with this cut if at all possible. Anyways, this is what I am thinking.

    Supps- CLA Ethyl Ester, 100% whey protein, Omega 3's, Multivitamin, and possibly albuteral (havent studied much on it, but heard good things if I was understanding right).

    Diet-

    Breakfast
    8 egg whites
    1/2 cup oatmeal

    snack
    2 tbs peanut butter
    2 scoop whey in water

    lunch
    8 oz lean chicken
    2 cups of steamed corn, no added sodium

    snack
    Can of tuna
    2 cups green beans

    pre workout meal
    1/2 cup oatmeal
    2 scoop whey protein in water

    post workout
    2 scoop whey in water

    diner
    8 oz lean chicken
    2 cups Broccoli

    (My diet program may need some help. Im 6'1 and weigh 205-208 right now. I was a powerlifter until about 4 months ago, so most of the weight is muscle, but i do have the love handles and the stomach fat that I would love to get rid of)

    Exercise program-
    I run 2 miles every morning for fire training at a above jog pace, so I basically do cardio everyday in the mornings.

    I was thinking about doing a 5X5 monday-bi/back tuesday-tri/chest wednesday- legs thursday- rest friday- start over again formatted training, but I didnt know if this would help cut as well as gain strength.... so basically I need alot of help on the training aspect. If you have a training program that has helped you cut in the past and you would like to share that would be greatly appreciated..

    Oh, and by the way, if theres anything i need to add diet or supp wise, money is not a huge factor, but I like to get a good deal for my buck. SO anyways, I would really appreciate some input because Im newly out of high school and all we did in high school was get yelled at by the coach and worked out everyday. ha So i know nothing and I am at the mercy to you fine scholars. THank you

    Substitue a green veggie for the corn in your lunch meal.
    Add BCAA's and Green tea for supplements.
    5x5 will probably work better at the start of your bulk as it is more of a strength/size routine, I would look for a full body routine during your cut.
