View Full Version : Cutting diet..

Right now im eating 2150 calories a day..

so this morning i ate..

can of tuna.. 180 calories, 40 grams of protein

then later

1 table spoon peanut butter on whole wheat bread.. 200 cals, 8 grams of protein
10 peanuts.. hopefully 100 calories and 5 grams of protein..

which is.. 480 cals.. and 53 grams of protein

then i had teriyaki chicken meal... which is 520 cals and 32 grams of protein

then later had chicken breast sandwich on whole weat bread = 450 cals 30 grams of protein

that put me at.. 1450 cals and 115 grams of protein

then worked out..

after workout drank protein shake.. 2 scoops = 300 calories, 70 grams of protein!
gatorade 130 cals (dextrose)
and a banana

which put me at 1950 calories and 185 grams of protein

then i ate 1 egg white, 1 egg + yolk and 1 bread.. which should put close to 2100 which is enough for the day

Then I heard that 70 grams of protein at 1 time is TOO MUCH..

should I split it up.. and drink 1 scoop of protein after workout and 1 before I go to sleep..

and critique my diet.. i cant spend money on a teriyaki chicken meal every day.. i need some more choices in food to eat

i bulked up from 145-170 from august 1st till now.. bodyfat went from 10% to 12-13% m looking to cut for 4-6 weeks and get my body fat low and ready for a 6 month bulk.. im 19

It's my understanding that your body can only process a certain amount of protein per hour. Whatever protein you consume that is in excess of that amount just gets flushed through the system. i.e. wasted

On a bulk with an unlimited amount of calories at your disposal each day you don't have to worry about how much protein your body can put to good use per hour you just have to take in as much as possible. However, on a cut with limited calories at your disposal per day it would probably be better for muscle growth and regeneration to spread the protein out over the day more efficiently, i.e. not 70 grams at one sitting. Everyone is different but from what I've heard 20-30 grams per hour is more than enough, for myself at least.

Your understanding is wrong. 10g or 100g your body with process it all. It will just take a lot longer to process the larger ammount.

yea that's like saying "if I eat enough McD's, at some point my body will just flush anything else I eat"
