hey y'all

most of you know that i'm injured now, but i was also just beginning a cut. i'd like some help in forming a cutting diet that also accounts for my ecovery. keep in mind i cant do any real physical activity, not even cardio, as heavy breathing pushes my lungs out and disturbs the injury. it sucks.

so please, :help:


i've also added 1200mg of calcium every day. is this enough to promote bone recovery? this is my first broken bone.

Personally I'd be apprehensive about cutting in your condition. When you're cutting you usually lack all of the nourishment that your body needs and in your condition that's probably not a good thing. Since you probably won't be too active I'd just eat a little below maintenance.

That's obviously not an expert opinion just my feeble attempt at logic.

I wouldn't cut either. Just try to maintain your weight as best you can. You'd lose lots of muscle if you tried to lose weight now. :eek:

I agree. Eat at, or slightly above maintainance (if you want to preserve more muscle). You may gain some fat, but its up to you. Cutting right now would result in a lot of muscle loss as well as perhaps slowing your recovery.
