    Looking to get cut up (have a 6 pack for the first time)


    Well i weigh about 187, and have only ever bulked lol. Been working out for about 4 years now. Im just not sure where to start. Ive been looking around and wanna do something like a 2700 calorie diet but that just seems a little low and I dont want to feel nostalgic all the time. Idk any tips or ideas?

    Start by cutting calories and adding cardio............ Also processed foods are your new enemy.

    And sugar sources , start cutting out the dairy little by little. Not for common bodybuilder idiocy, but to start reducing your sugar intake , lactose being a form of sugar...well...no bueno

    Also make sure you don't skimp on fiber. Common mistake and can be unpleasant

    Both posts above are very true. And a food example of bad fiber intake (insufficient) is really nasty protein farts.

    5'11 @ 187? I don't think 2700 would be too low to cut at. What's you're bf?

    2700 is definitely not to low, depending on your bf% you would probably want to start around 2500-2700 and go down as results slow

    Hmm well im 5'10 @ 205lbs. around 20%bf or less and im cutting at 2300. What's your activity level like? You can try cutting at 2500 for 2 weeks. If you're losing 1-2lbs a week then your good, if not cut that by 200 for another 2wks and reevluate from there. Its all about trial and error because its different for almost everyone
