Hey guys this is my first post and I am starting to get back into lifting and back into shape. But anyway, I was gonna start cutting and im taking the the Muscletech Shredded Stack. The diet plan in the book it has says to eat 8 hard boiled eggs for breakfast. I was just curious to see how healthy this is? Not to mention, this is supposed to be done for 21 straight days. Hope to hear some helpful feedback?

So basically, if you're healthy with no family history of cholestoral problems you should be okay.

You should post your entire diet maybe we can help. There's no reason to change a good diet plan after only 3 weeks. You shouldn't expect big results in that short period of a time.

Also, there are cheaper supplements than Muscletech that work just as good.

What do you mean the problem is the "Muscletech?" By the way after the 21 days i do plan to continue with a diet plan. Not to mention i dont expect amazing results from i t in 21 days either. But anything is a start.

There's nothing wrong with Muscletech it's just completely overpriced.

Meal 1
8 Hard boiled eggs
1 cup oatmeal
1 piece of fresh fruit

Meal 2
2 scoops of Nitrotech Hardcore

Meal 3
1 can of tuna
2 potatoes

Meal 4
2 scoops of Nitrotech Hardcore
1 veggie of some sort

Meal 5
2 boneless skinless pieces of chicken
1/2 cup brown rice

Meal 6
2 Scoops of Nitrotech Hardcore
4 stalks of celery

This is pretty much it, however it will vary some with some fish and beef as well.

What do you recommend thats not as pricey as Muscletech.

What are your stats? Age, weight, height, bodyfat %(approximately).

I'm just gonna take a guess and assume you're trying to gain weight. Maybe cut back on the protein powder and add more foods like cottage cheese, peanut butter, and olive oil. This is a good thread: http://www.wannabebigforums.com/showthread.php?t=46565

Hope this helps.

I missed this in your first post. I'll tell you what I would do in your place it's up to you if you want to take the advice.

Since you're cutting I wouldn't drink so much protein because it doesn't fill you up and leave you satisfied like whole foods.

I remember reading on this website that you should try and seperate Carbs and Fats from the same meal. So put the oatmeal from meal#1 somewhere else in the day.

I wouldn't eat the fruit. Eat more vegetables like brocolli, spinach, brussel sprouts, asparagus, onions, and peppers.

Remember, lose weight slowly and keep your training sessions short and sweet.

I agree with everything Collegiate is saying. Remember dont' lose more than 2 pounds per week. If you do, than your losing valuable muscle as well. Remember, a pound of fat has about 3500 calories, so, you want to burn and eat 7,000 calories less in a 7 day period. How can you accomplish this, well, by calorie reduction and good 30 minute cardio sessions. Divide 7,000 by 7 and you get 1,000 calories per day that need to vanish some how some way. Lets 600 from cardio/and intense weight training and the other 400 from calorie reduction. should look like a pro in about 8 weeks. good luck
