View Full Version : New Cutting Diet

12-20-2003, 03:02 AM
I plan to start this diet on Monday. After much success with my Ketogenic diet and after stopping weight loss, I am thinking of going back to balanced for the last 10-15 pounds before I bulk and begin taking Creatine. I will probably only eat the foods listed for the first week. I will make another plan for next week but will stay within the same parameters. Later on, I will be eating lots of tuna, eggs and chicken. My goal calories intake is 1750-1800 per day, of which 20%-25% will be from fats, 30%-35% will be carbs and 40%-45% will be protein.

Breakfast= Quaker Oats with Whey. Fish Oil Caps

Snack= Natty PB and Banana Sandwich

Lunch=Protein Shake 2 scoops Whey and 1 Cup Non-fat Milk

Snack= Turkey Burger

Snack= Protein Shake 2 scoops Whey and 1 Cup Non-fat Milk

Dinner= Banana or Apple with 1 Cup Milk

Water= 1 Gallon

For those of you interested, I have gone from 250 to 177 in 8 months. I am 57@15BF. My long-term goal is 185@6-8BF.

Let me know what you think.

Its refreshing to see other people still eat fruit.

You cutting on a cycle?

Looks good to me, but won't you be hungry? The breakdowns and everything seem good. 5'7" 185 with 6-8 bf will look awesome. Good luck.

If I get hungry, I figure that I will drink more water or just eat some Jello. I plan on doing this for only 6 weeks and then will start a slow bulk.

At almost 180lbs, I would think 17-1800 cals would be a little too low.

It's hard to give advice when you don't know a person's body comp and lifestyle. He's been doing this for a while and probably knows what he's talking about. I can say it would be fine for me as well but, I sit at a PC for 8 hrs a day and my only excercise is when I work out and after that I come home and do schoolwork.

Not saying you're wrong just saying you don't have all the facts to consider...

You are correct. My day is sitting on a computer for 8 hours per day at work. The rest is chilling at home watching TV or PC. My workout consists of 30 cardio about 2-3 times per week and heavy weight training 3-4 times per week. The calorie deficit is low, but it is what is required for me to lose the desired weight. Once I am done, I will be focusing on a slow muscle gain. At that point, I will be increasing my calorie count to 15x body weight with same macronutrient break down.

Man, I am bloated like hell. I now weigh 190 pounds. I was at 177 when I was on keto and bloated up from the carbo load and now balanced diet. I hope I go down to 180 by the end of the week.

You most likely wont go down that low, but you probably will go down a bit. And the bloat should get better. Good luck with the diet bro.
