    Starting a 4-week cut tomorrow. Menu Help please


    I'm aiming to lose 10 lbs in the next month. I lift Mon-Tu and Thu-Fr and play in an Amateur Basketball League on Saturdays.

    Here's what I plan to eat for a month:

    9:00 a.m. - Morning Shake (1 scoop of Whey 32g, 1 cup of Oatmeal, 2 cups of 1% Milk).

    12:00 p.m. - 2 chicken/fish/beef patties with mixed veggies and 2 tsp. Olive Oil.

    3:30 p.m. - 1 Peanut Butter Sandwich.

    5:00 p.m. - (Pre-Workout) 1 Scoop of Whey 32g in Water, half of creatine serving, liquid aminoacids.

    7:00 p.m. - (Post-Workout) 2 Scoops of Whey 64g, 1 cup of Oatmeal, 2 cups of 1% Milk; half of creatine serving.

    8:00 p.m. - 1 can of White Tuna in Water with mixed veggies and a Tbsp. of Mayo.

    ----------------------------------------

    I currently weigh about 223 lbs. I would like to get down to 180 eventually but don't want to lose muscle mass. For now, I hope to lose 10 lbs in these 4 weeks.

    I appreciate any help/tweaks you guys can make to my diet. I'll be doing it for 4 weeks and switch it up then (either because of a plateau or because I get fvkin tired of the menu . . . or both).

    Good luck to you as well. I'm subbing yours. My goal is also 40 lbs, although by my next birthday (February). Still, I'd like to lose 20 or more by the end of October.

    Nice, nice. Yeah, I did a CKD log about a year and a half ago. Lost a lot of weight and got some nice lean mass . . . but I ended up getting sick and having some heart issues (unrelated to the CKD) and had to stop exercising for 9 months, time during which I gained 50 fvkin lbs!!!

    Anyways, I was cleared for exercise again and I'm physically and mentally pumped, which means this is about to happen!!!

    You may want to add 1/2 a cup of cilantro to remove the heavy metals from mercury which is high in tuna.

    Considering you are playing basketball on Saturday, try and adjust an increase in carbs just on that day.

    Remove the bread from your pb sandwich, and have the PB + fruit. I actually have a workout plan that includes a menu plan, very high level and leaves room to modify to your liking, just stick to the foundation i.e. portion of protein = size of palm, and eat a wack of veggies.

    Throw in some Extra Virgin Coconut oil either at the start of your day (nice energy boost) or pre workout.. I have used that with great success, I use to weigh 220LBS, round face pizza gobbling machine, I started Judo, changing my diet and got down to a solid, and I mean solid 180pounds

    I would consume 1 tablespoon of ExtraVirgin Coconut Oil day 1, day 2=2 tablespoons ExtraVirgin Coconut Oil, then have for my breakfast 1/2cup oatmeal+1cup frozen fruit either mixed or straight blueberries.

    I was consuming the coconut oil+CLA, and It was noticeable no joke.

    You may experience some low energy, in which case listen to your body and if you need to add some carbs, some juice will do the trick.

    So yeah, those are my observations, and listen to your body. There are some formulas that include fat and carb intake, and I am drawing a blank on where I have that info, and will post tonight at home as I know its there but somewhere in my house

    Hope this helps.

    That's great help, thanks! I will be adding some coconut oil to my meal plan.

    As for the PB sandwich, I wanted to keep the bread just to have some noticeable carbs around two hours before my workout. Fruits would do the trick as well, but being such a bread/rice/pasta lover, I'm afraid if I don't keep at least a slice of bread a day the diet will be hell to follow. I might cut to 1 slice instead of 2 and add half a banana or something.

    I hear ya on loving bread and pasta long time LOL!! I have a weakness for cheese . If I dont see it I will not miss it.

    Ive been on the straight and narrow for 2 weeks not indulging in that.

    Thats a good idea on 1 slice+ a banana, and maybe 1/2 cup raisins right after you workout for the glycogen replacement.

    I`ve been looking for coconut oil and can`t seem to find it. Can either of you guys point me in the right direction? Supermarket, GNC, health food store, etc. No luck.

    Make sure its Extra Virgin Coconut oil, if you just get anything else that is not extra virgin, you will feel the wrath of the gag reflex, as its processed using hexane and tastes really bad and I dont think its that good for you.

    As for the location, if at a grocery store check out the Ethnic food section, and\or health food aisle.

    Check out some of the smaller health food stores, they cater to a more discerning client and will stock that up, and last but not least you can check it out online.

    I found the following site directly to the product, its cold pressed which is good.
    Coconut oil

    Its not cheap, but cheaper than what I am getting it at which is ~$25.00

    SuppKnight do you do hill sprints? i will be starting these shortly as i've seen a fat mate transform himself with these and semi-sensible eating.

    Morning fasted hill sprints seem to be the best fat-loss and conditioning cardio you could wish for
