Got an idea for a few days to try this cottage cheese diet. 10 servings 4% cottage cheese per day, plus 2 scoops of whey and 6 cups of skim milk.

Totals For Day

calries: 1805
fat: 51g
carbs: 127
protein: 212


only thing i could see wrong would be the fat from the cottage cheese and the sugar from the milk.

What's wrong with fat and sugar?

Edited to add: do you just hate cooking or something?

I would think the point of a diet like that would be to be eating basically pure protein. The 4% cottage cheese (as opposed to fat free, or even 1 or 2%), as well as all the carbs from the milk kind of defeat the purpose IMHO.

I don't think there's anything wrong with fat or lactose in general, just on that particular diet.

Everything in moderation.

It's not "that" dumb. It's basically PSMF, except the way he's got it laid out right now there's too much fat and carbs, and there's no talk of a refeed. With some minor modifications I'm sure it could work fairly well for him in the short run. Clearly it's not a long-term diet.

right. i just meant for a few days. some girl i was training at work was talking about a cottage cheese diet. and since it's easy to shove down a bunch at once, i thought it might be cool to try. so i tried to make one up. i was gonna do it for a couple days each week. i would use no fat cottage cheese, but it tastes like ****.

well i work 9-10 4 days per week. i work in a gym and i am usually busy most of the day. i like to have a simple diet that consists of easy to eat food. there is a dollar store right by the gym, and a gas station as well. cottage cheese and whey are both very easy to eat quickly with little prep time. and i'm on my last 8 pounds of a cut... so i figure basic food i can eat quick is a good idea.

why not just prepare food beforehand store it in tupperware and bring it to work.

i don't like doing that... when i bulk i just bring my cytogainer and some random snacks. plus i can eat baked lays, and other higher carb foods. but when i cut i don't like messin with cookin up fish, chicken, ect, and bringing it in. plus it takes longer to eat than something like cottage cheese that i can just wolf down.

Eh... theres alot different ways to skin a cat, pick your poision. But me personally I would be hungry constantly if I were to go on that diet.

For the diet to make sense you need to change the 4% cottage cheese to dry curd, tuna, chicken, etc. (ie. pure protein, no carbs or fat).

I mean I'm sure the current diet will be fine for your cut, but it's far from optimal.

right... well what type of different would the 4% make?

cuz i don't feel like mixing 10 cans of tuna at work, and i hate no fat cottage cheese.

The 4% has less protein, more fat, and more carbs per serving...that is the difference.

I love cottage cheese but man I wouldn't recommend eating just one kind of food for any length of time. Sounds like a good way to deprive yourself of vitamins and nutrients. Your body needs the various nutrients you get from a varied diet including vegs, fruit, and different sources of protein.

Ah my mistake. I'm talking about dry curd cottage cheese, which is no fat, no carbs, and basically tasteless.

When people talk about not dropping calories too much on a cut they are referring to your basic diet, ie. eating the same amount under maintenance all week. When you start getting into cyclical diets and incorporating refeeds you can afford to really drop the cals for short periods of time.

Sounds like he never wants to have a bowel movement again. With all that dairy (and the stool hardening effects of the calcium), and NO fiber, his colon will turn to concrete (mine would). I eat 3 servings of Cottage Cheese, and a serving or two of milk just about every day, but then I also get 45-60g of fiber daily.
