Hey, I've been gathering alot of useful info. from the past couple weeks about cutting diets. I bulked up to 200 lbs and it's time to cut. I'm 17, 6 ft, and roughly 24% BF (rough measurement). I've slowly made my way down to 2300-2400 calories a day, and my diet is as follows:

Meal 1:5 egg whites, 1 yolk, 1/4 cup oats, 1/4 cup milk, 1 tb. natty pb
Meal 2: 5 oz chicken, 1 cup spinach, 4 flax pills
Meal 3: 1 cup CC, 1 medium apple, 1 tb. natty pb
Meal 4: 1 can tuna, 1 tb. mayo, salad w/ 1/2 cucumber, 1 tb olive oil
Meal 5: 1 scoop whey, 1/4 cup oats, 1/4 cup milk
Meal 6: 5 oz chicken, 1 cup of veggies, 4 flax pills
Meal 7: 1 cup CC, 1 tb natty pb

Total: 2309
Fat: 88 788 36%
Sat: 21 187 8%
Poly: 19 167 8%
Mono: 39 355 16%
Carbs: 139 492 22%
Fiber: 16 0 0%
Protein: 234 937 42%

I do HIIT cardio 3-4 days a week as well and have lost 2 lbs this week so I may need to increase some calories.
Any suggestions or comments would be appreciated, Thanks!

Your diet is very similar to what mine averages out to, but I carb cycle so it varies depending on whether it's a lifting or a non-lifting day.

Your cals might be just a smidge low, but I don't know what your maintenance cals are.

All in all, it looks pretty good!

Not bad at all man.

I've been cutting for a little over a week now and I've already seen noticeable results; it's kind of crazy.

Coupled with around four 1-mile morning runs a week and regular 4-day-split lifting, my cutting diet has been getting me VERY fast results. I can tell fat has come off EVERYWHERE.

I never was "fat", but after my trip to Florida (read: lots of crap food and tons of beer), I HAD to cut to be back to normal.

I've just been eating a ton of protein, less carbs than usual, and mostly "watching" what I eat and "when" I eat it rather than just eat whatever whenever like it is when bulking.

I figure one more week of this and I'll be alright.

I would suggest adding carbs meal 4 to help fuel the workout, and the meal 6 to fully take advantage of your bodies anabolic state after your workout. Also, how much are you loosing per week at 2300 cals?

Well, I just began my diet about a week ago, and have shed 1-2 lbs already at 2300 cals. I agree about meal 4, im workin on puttin 1/2 cup oats for my preworkout to help my lifting.
