    Cutting Diet HELP ME


    I'm looking to cut weight and trim down for the summer, right now I weigh 185'ish and want to get down to 170 now

    Morning - Before work
    2 Yougurt - 200 cal, 10 pro, 38 carb, 0 fat
    Protein Shake - 140 cal, 27 pro, 3 carb, 0 fat
    Fish Oil
    Multi-V

    Snack 1
    Peanut Butter & Banana *1/2* - 173 cal, 8 pro, 21 carb, 9 fat

    Lunch
    Peanut Butter & Banana *1/2* - 172 cal, 8 pro, 21 carb, 9 fat
    Protein Shake - 140 cal, 27 pro, 3 carb, 0 fat

    Snack 2
    Peanut Butter & Banana *1/2* - 172 cal, 8 pro, 21 carb, 9 fat

    Snack 3
    Peanut Butter & Banana *1/2* - 173 cal, 8 pro, 21 carb, 9 fat

    PWO
    Protein Shake - 280 cal, 54 pro, 6 carb, 0 fat

    So before I eat my dinner for the night I have here:
    1450 Calories, 150g Protein, 128g Carbs, 36g Fat

    Giving myself room to eat what I want for dinner, something clean though, chicken, turkey, tuna, high in protein or some pasta, would this suffice? And does it matter exactly how many macros you get, as long as I get the calories in and I eat clean?

    Great variation there!!

    Have you worked out your BMR? With calories that low you want to be careful you dont lose any muscle mass.

    Personally Id re-think the whole diet and mix it up abit.

    Ditto that. Peanut butter is high cal and low protein, exactly the opposite of what you want on a cut. Keep that for one snack if you want but make sure you're measuring accurately, otherwise you're probably eating more than 1 serving.

    Get more of your protein from real foods. Eggs, beef, chicken, and fish are good places to start. Eat at least 1g protein per pound of body weight.

    Aim for 2000-2200 calories per day to start and adjust from there based on your results. Make sure you're measuring your calories accurately and keep track of everything.

    I haven't miscalculated those numbers, that's including the bread, sorry didn't put sandwich on those. And that's just the normal thing, I know I can easily add more stuff, can of tuna for lunch and stuff, that is just before I even eat my dinner. I know that with dinner i'll hit over 2k and under 2.5k, whereas my maintenance is 2.7k, so deficit is easy. As well as i'll be on OSTA so, losing muscle will probably not happen or be minimal, more than likely I'll gain
