Cutting. Why so hungry?

  1. Cutting. Why so hungry?


    I'm cutting at 2600 calories
    200g carb
    300g protein
    60g carb
    I'm down to about 218 12-15%
    Why am I so hungry 24/7?
    What can I take or do to help?
    I have done several cuts before and Have not experienced hunger pains all day like I am now. I wake up every night starving


  2. What was your caloric intake prior to cutting?

    3500 I was clean bulking. Slowly tapered my calories down 200 per week it's like anything under 2800 feels like I'm starving.

  4. Can you post a diary of what you are eating? Perhaps increase fats if they are low

  5. It means first you are definitely in a deficit which is good because you are cutting, also your metabolism is firing on all cylinders and chances are you are in an anabolic state. Just my opinion but I would consider flip floppin protein and carbs so 200P 300C might help you stay a bit more satiated.

    Were you losing weight at 2800kcals?

  7. On training days I typically start the day with a hour of fasted incline walking.

    Meal 1- 2 cup egg whites 1 cup oats
    2 hours after meal 1 I lift for 30-40min

    Meal 2- 1 scoop weigh

    Meal 3- 4 eggs, 1/2 cup black beans and 1/4 cup dry quinoa

    Meal 4 and 5- 9oz chicken breast 1/2 cup cooked long grain white rice

    Meal 6- 2 packs low sugar Quaker Oats and scoop of casein

    Macros-
    Protein: 325
    Carbs: 197
    Fat: 59

    Yea I'm deff in a deficit ecspecally with upping my cardio to an hour. I would like to keep carbs as low as possible without going into ketosis or effecting my performance in the gym. I'm trying to reset my insulin sensitivity for my next bulk wich will be rite after I'm done cutting.

    I might have been but at a verry slow rate. I'm aiming for 1-2 pounds a week

  10. I'd increase fats a bit, drop protein, up carbs
    75g fat/250g protein/275g carbs.

    Try that and see how you feel.

    That wouldn't work for me as once carbs are increased I start to feel hungry so I personally set protein at a minimum of 1.5g per lb of body weight, fats at ~0.5g and the rest from carbs which is generally ~200 - For the record I cut at ~14 to 15x body weight aiming to lose 1lb per week.

  12. Changing my macros to

    Protein- 282g
    Fat- 86g
    Carb- 144g

    Starting today

    Im still hungry af but it has deff helped. Feel like I have more energy as well. I will be hungry no matter what with my deficit. 2600 cals burning 600 with cardio puts me at 2000

  19. Ya its rough but you'll adjust. thought about getting a fat burner that helps suppress appetite maybe? For me whenever I have cut down that far to where Im starving that bad Ill usually look for or get a fat burner to help suppress appetite as well as help burning cals.

    Any thoughts on that?
    Figure out what you want, make a plan, go get it, period.
