critique my pre-contest diet

Page 2 of 2 First 12

  1. I don't like the idea of mixing fat with carbs can you use skim milk. I think your cals are a little low I would definitely add more protein. You need more protein when your cutting in my opinion. Unless your on Keto, that's why I won't use Keto under 12 -15% I just don't trust it at that low of protein. On my current precontest I basically do not lose muscle mass and I don't hear too many people making that claim on Keto.

    i have a real slow metablism and my maintenance is like 2500 kcals, i do use skim milk, i would of thought my carbs and protein were pretty high enough as im about 1.5g of protein per lb of bodyweight in protein and carbs i thought were high enough for a cutting diet.....i want to lose about 25lbs to be at 5% bodyfat....is 15 weeks enough time?

  3. It's more than enough time, I don't see how your maintenance can be so low but I'll take your word for it 1.5 for 1 lb of lbm is what I use for bulking I use at least 2 for cuting. (usually more). Dieting is an individual thing but I am a little concerned atbout your protein intake some wouldn't be...

    We could up your protein say 50 grams and the fact that your eating so many fibrous carbs will help (some foods take more energy to digest) and add a little cardio and I still think you'll do very well.

    thanks for your help man i appreciate it, my maintenance is very low i know, im thinking of how i can bump up the protein without the carbs.....hmmmmmmm

  5. Tuna, or a shake will do and egg whites are all protein. Veal leg is very lean and chicken breast boneless skinless.

    Sure. All of those high gi carbs in your postworkout shake are going to cause a massive surge in insulin. The insulin will cause glucose to be rapidly cleared from your blood which could cause your blood sugar levels to drop below normal.

    By ingesting a low gi carb source within an hour of your shake you'll be supplying a steady flow of carbs into your bloodstream to stabilize blood sugar.
    can i just varify something....... why is this necessary?

  7. Low blood sugar will leave you feeling lethargic and likely cause you to have some carb cravings. If you don't supply the carbs to restore blood sugar glucagon will trigger their release from the liver and then once the liver is depleted of glycogen it will go to the muscles for glucose via gluconeogenesis.

    Someone else may have to clarify the glucagon process, its something that I'm still fuzzy on.
