    Pre Contest Cut


    Hi Guys,


    Been cutting 6 weeks now. Have seen reasonable weight loss but think im hitting a plateau.

    I havent increased cardio or decreased kals during this cut yet.

    What are your opinions ?

    Im taking in 2150 kals - Taking in 240g protein, 170g carbs, 60g fat, around 2180 kals a day.


    Can we have no one stating dont bother cutting please, i just need advice.


    Regards

    I wouldn't want to go much lower than what your in at the moment so I would increase your activity level. Add in some fasted cardio in the morning and a day or two of HIIT and go from there. If also throw in a fat burner like vanillean, alphamine or ECA.

    Just lower calories with mostly cutting carbs down and just do a once a week re-feed after your biggest workout
    The difference between who you are and who you want to be is what you do.

    This was my thinking, I'd rather increase activity and still have a decent amount of food. I'd cut cals / carbs last, maybe a few weeks out.
