Howdy folks ...

I'm looking to kick-start a serious cut. Probably 6+ weeks of cutting. I used to keep up to date on all the latest trends (or fads), as well as the science of diet and nutrition.

Since I'm being lazy with the search buttons what is the current thinking on cutting in terms of macro break-down, ketogenic, isocaloric etc.

My plan is to go into a massive caloric deficit for a week or two (I'm 6'1 265 so I can afford it) ... and work-out 4 times a week. Weights and cardio. Maybe some HIIT.

I'm pretty fit for a big guy, run 2-3 miles at 5.5mph, bench 350+ blah blah I imagine my BF % is in low 20's.

So anyways is it still basically bring in as close to a gram of protein per lean pound and then balance out carbs and fats from there depending on how many calories you want to be bringing in?

If your an somewhat experiences lifter, I suggest trying a PSMF to jump start your cut. I did it for 1.5 weeks and lost quite a bit of fat.
