Im am using this to start a cutting diet as my goal is to drop
15-25 lbs by July 1st. My current weight is 240. My ratio is 40pro/30carb/30fat and I will be consuming a total of 3000 cals to start. I got that number from some of the members here.

I dont have the macros for each meal on hand right now, but this is what a sample day will look like

meal 1
1 cup oats
2 servings of protein powder

meal 2
2 cups fat free cottage cheese
1 baked potato

meal 3
2 cans tuna
3/4 cup to 1 cup brown or white rice

meal 4
8oz chicken w/salsa
3/4 cup brown rice

meal 5
2 servings protein powder
1/2 cup rice
large salad with dressing

meal 6
1 1/2 cups cottage cheese
1/2 cup rice

i know I need more fat, I plan to pick up some flax from the store this weekend, and some no sodium peanuts to help get my fat up.
At the end of the day I should be around
102 fat Hows it look?

try this for a few days......

put all of your carbs in only your post workout meals also include alot of protien too and just eat small amounts of protien and fat throughout the day. this may work better

My last 2 meals are post workout. Eat 115g carbs per meal for my last two meals of the night? I thought consuming too many carbs late at night is bad for fat burning? My last 2 meals are at 9:30pm and 11:30 pm on lifting nights.

try just shoveling in about 200 or so carbs within an hour time frame post workout man, because your body makes more use of the carbs right after workout, protien synthesis increases like 30 percent after workout and glycogen storage also increases so it would be more logical to take in the majority of everything right after workout even if its late that way all day next day you will have many hours to burn fat on just protien because your insulin levels will be low. dont take my word for it just try it and if it dont like it then im sorry i couldnt help

Mr. Buttcheeks. Would I still use the ratios I have?

drop your protien to 240 and drop fat about 50 grams up carbs about 30 grams. this seems about right to me give it a shot let me know what you think, me thinks you will be happy
