While I'm cutting what should be the primary sources for carbs also what should the ratio be for carbs,protein and fat while cutting?
Thanks in advance.:help:

Primarily low GI carbs...i.e. brown rice, whole wheat, etc.

Ratios aren't that important, just help you get the diet sorted out. I generally use a 40/30/30 p/c/f split.

In the end, it all just comes down to cals in vs. cals out. Burn more cals than you take in.

I agree with Shao-lin. Just make shure you get enough protein and at least 30% of calories from fat on your diet for optimum hormonal profile. Less fat than that and your testosterone levels go down, which means you'll lose more muscle.
