What are some good diets to lose weight but still be able to build muscle? Reduce cravings? Keep up energy levels?

I always prefer 40-30-30 low carb approach. See: http://www.nutri-tracker.com/nutrition.htm

That looks like a good deal. Could you give me an idea of a common day eating schedule for this program. How do you figure you percentages? What do you recommend for nutrition bars, i.e. high protein, low carb. Thanks!

I am on a cutting diet right now which is not exactly 40-30-30 - but a couple of my first posts in my Online Journal have a very specific listing of food and calculations of protein, carbs, fats and total calories (as well as percentage breakdowns). You can get an idea of how to set something like this up.

Irish, I am trying the CKD for the first time this week. I can agree about the lack of hunger, but increased energy, what the heck?

Maybe cause I am new to this? I am on day 4 and I feel like crap. I have no energy. I am going to bed earlier and still waking up as tired as ever.

Should this change after my carb load up day and if I continue the ckd throughout next week?

Depending on your goals and on your experience you can choose from a wide range of diets. Meal seperation is one of the best diets for me.

This diet is kinda tough but its working wonders for me... 50-35-15... You'll find its really hard to eat alot, since its easy to eat 100's and 100's of grams of carbs.. but to do so with protein its a little more difficult. and I haven't lost any body mass while on this, just fat.
