Heya guys...i need some help makeing a diet and i know you guys can help. I'm currently 5'8 and weighing in at 220 lbs. I'm training to compete in mixed martial arts and need to find a diet to cut weight but still maintain my muscle mass. I have no clue what i can eat to do this so any help would be appriated. I have been takeing in large amounts of protein and low carbs so try and get my muscle mass up, then i stoped training, and got fat. Any help makeing a diet to cut some serious weight would be awsome. I have lots of protein shakes and other supliments so help a brother out...thanks guys

Read the sticky "What a Bodybuilder eats" at the top of the Diet forum.

Aside from that, you'll probably need to take in extra calories since your workouts are probably very intense (I know a few MMA guys). You'll have to experiment and see what works for you. I'd suggest starting with about 3000 cals a day for a couple weeks and see where your weight goes. If you're not losing any weight, drop about 250 cals/day each week until you're losing 1/2 - 1 lb per week. You'll have to lose the weight very slowly if you want to maintain muscle.

Have you tracked on www.fitday.com at all?

Start there. Post up what your typical day looks like, we can take it from there. K?
