Pre-breakfast 40min cyclette. My goal: no catabolism.
4 days every week.

Male, 28 years, 175cm, 10kg (=22 pounds) to lose.
(1kg = 2.2 pounds)
(1g = 0,0022 pounds)


This is my program:

10:00 AM (wake up) : 5 grams BCAA + 1 gram acetylcarnitine + 3 cps thermogenics

10:15 AM (empty stomach) : 30-40 minutes cyclette in lipolitic heart beat range (60%-70% of 220-age bpm) (4 days every week)

11:00 AM (breakfast): 30grams whey protein + fruit + multivitaminic

1:00 PM (lunch): 200 grams beans + 150 grams meat or fish + olive oil

4:00 PM (snack): 1 fruit + 5 egg's white + omega 3 (3 grams)

8:00 PM (dinner): 150 grams meat or fish + olive oil + vegetables

11:30 PM (before sleep): 150gr greek yogurt 0% or 200gr cottage cheese

All day: a lot of vegetables and black/green tea.

Push-ups to use muscles and not losing them.



Is my program ok or all my muscle will catabolize away?
Can you suggest me some improvements?

Thanks!

8pm is way too late to be eating a meal if your cutting.You need to stop at 6:30 at the latest.Are you working out at all?I only saw cardio.If your worried about catabolism,then your muscles will start to atrophy in about 2 weeks due to lack of use.Push ups aint gonna cut it dude.Other than that your program is well thought out.

if you lift weights with that, it sounds good. but you will then probably need more protein

I don't think you are going to be losing 22lbs in 30 days with a conventional diet. If you do manage to a LARGE part of it is going to be muscle. How much fat are you going to be getting a day, and how much do you weigh? How much protein and carbs?

Whats the problem?

Why would 8pm be too late to eat?

Its not if your eating normally.But if your dieting,its better to have the food stop a few hours before bed.And then get up and do cardio on an empty stomach.Since most of us get up early for work(me at 4:30am),then we are in bed early(me 9pm).Now if you were working a second or third shift,this would be different.I will eat up until 7 or 8 but Im still gaining.

Why would eating before bed be bad?

If your dieting,you want to go to bed on an empty stomach so that when you wake up you are hungry,and your body has had more time to assimilate your last meal.Again,this is only if your trying to LOSE weight.

The man speaks the truth. Good assessment Mike.

And why would you want to wake up hungry? This logic doesn't make any sense at all.

It's far more about what you eat than when you eat. If you eat, for instance, a cup of cottage cheese before bed, that casein protein will stay with you longer. If your digestive system has something to work on while you sleep and what you've eaten doesn't have much sugar in it, you won't wake up hungry. When you're cutting, not being hungry is the ideal.

This is pretty much the basis of the Intermittent Fasting protocol.

Totally disagree. I ate right before bed, and ate every morning before cardio during my contest prep. No food at night + cardio on an empty stomach = tons of muscle loss imo. I would eat some sort of casein protein + fat at night. And a small amount of carbs + protein before morning cardio.
