View Full Version : Too much fat for a cut?

03-08-2004, 01:16 PM
I started cutting and I started creatine(I loaded it) exactly 11 days ago. I started at 185lbs and now I am 180.5lbs. Bf was probably ~20% at the start.
My macronutrients come to roughly...

35-45% fat
35-45% carbs
25-30% protein

My calorie intake is
2200 - 2700 on workout days
2000 - 2500 on nonworkout days

I rarely go as low as 2000, usually I am right at 2400-2500ish.

My question is should I make an effort to cut back on the fats or am I ok?

Just a fyi this is my second cut, my first cut sucked because I was eating too little and I lost muscle.

I'd aim for maybe isocaloric or 40p/30c/30f ratio. But in the end, as long as you're consuming less calories than you expend, you'll lose weight.
