Should I stop adding this to my protein shakes while cutting?

I would say keep using it, but for post workout shakes only.

if you start having trouble losing bodyfat drop the amount in the post workout shake down to about 40 grams to prevent spiking insulin. when insulin spikes lipolysis halts for a good 3 hours or so

You could drop it completely and use more whey instead.

Sure if you want to just burn it off and have only a portion of it used for muscle building.

It depends on what your goals are. After a heavy anaerobic excercise add the maltodextrin, after cardio dot he same but maybe not as much. I guess it really depents on how intencse your cardio seesion is.

I am still seeing good results following the same routine I use for cardio and weights. Having a clean diet and not eating like a pig helps fat reduction.

My suggestion is to add less after cardio and eat clean for the rest of the day.

*** His goals are to cut, therefore taking more whey in postworkout instead of malto will still replenish muscle stores. On top of this it will keep the insulin spike to a minimum compared to taking in maltodextrin.
