there is alot of threads in here about how to BULK up and stuff...but what if you dont really want to get bigger...personally id rather get mildly big but be RIPPEd outta my mind....would the diet change for that type of goal? basically just dont eat as many calories or what?

That would be a cut diet and there's plenty of threads on that, too.

If you already have as much muscle mass as you want then, yes, you just need to find a diet that loses fat and minimizes muscle loss. If you want to gain mass as well then you'll probably end up needing to do recurring bulk-cut-bulk-cut cycles.

Big difference.

If you want muscle, you need calories.

If your diet sucks, you probably won't be eating enough to achieve your goal.

Cutting or bulking, diet is about 80% of it.

You can take a look at how I diet if you like. I bulk the same way as I cut, only in reverse.

Not the only way to do it, but I like it.
