I'm finished with my bulk, and I'm ready to cut some serious fat without losing alot of muscle. I've heard that Carb Cycling works well. How much of my gains can I expect to lose? Is it possible to cut 15lbs of fat in 3 weeks, while keeping most of the muscle gained? The reason I'm saying 3 weeks is , that is when I see my girlfriend and I would like to surprise her. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanx guys and gals.

Most people go by 1lb a week. So 3 weeks, 3lbs. Can you lose 15lbs in 3 weeks, sure. Can you do it while maintaining your LBM, very very doubtful.

15 pounds of fat in 3 weeks...good luck. I heard cocaine can help, though.

Well I'm kind of lost in gauging how much I should lose to look the way I want. In other words, I'm not sure how much I should lose.

Whats the most possible when Carb Cycling?

Why not just slowly and gradually reduce total calories until you start losing weight and then keep doing it until you have lost the desired amount of fat?

I carb cycle - I find it works really well - the lower carb days are the non-lifting days, and it's a LOT easier to control appetite when you keep your carbs low. These are also good days to do some steady-state cardio.

My diet is in the link in my sig. You know, the part you fellas skim past to get to the pictures...

If you cut using carb cycling at a reason rate then you should experience no loss in LBM, if not a gain. For a rate of fat loss as extreme as you are looking for it sounds like you want a PSMF, although I doubt anything will let you lose 15 lbs of fat in 3 weeks.

Where can I get info on PSMF?

Bunch of people doing PSMF on one of the boards I mod: www.beyondlowcarb.net

UD2.0, go buy the book. Even if you don't end up doing the diet, it's loaded with great information.

I just finished reading it. It's an excellent resource. But it's not quite the same as PSMF.

Or you can go to Lyle's board http://www.bodyrecomposition.com/forums and get info from the man himself. You can also buy the e-book on that site.

In any event, PSMF is great for rapid weight loss, but 15 pounds of pure fat loss is still a stretch. You should also be prepared to feel like crap.
