Anyways: I adjusted my previous bulking diet so that I could only switch the foods around a little bit, and be able to drop the cals. HOWEVER... I cannot seem to drop my protein below 315 without thinking im going to starve, and lose muscle. I have got my cals down as low as I could, however its still above 3k cals and my pro is too high for where I would like it to be at.

If you guys can help me adjust this today, so that i can jump on it tomorrow, i would be very VERY appreciative. I included a link to my Excel spreadshhet with my Cutter diet on it, and all of the calculations are already in there for ease of use; in other words, feel free to play around with it, because all of the calc's should add up.

Thanks again guys!
