casein protein...cocheese is usually the easiest/most cost effective way to get this protein...

depends on how hard you're cutting. If i really wanna go low cal for the day but need to feel like i'm eating something i'll have some sugar free jello and a tiny bit of peanut butter.

Why?? So that you're body has got a some gelatin and fat? You'd be much better getting just straight protein in, if you're, as you say, "cutting hard."

I always eat at bedtime, even on a cut.

I just save some calories so I can eat then.

If you're cutting, don't eat anything before bed. Your body is going to convert it to fat while you're sleeping.

Before bed I usually eat 1/2cup of dry curd chocheese with 2cups of milk OR 1/2 cup of chocheese with some natty PB and water

although I find if I have natty PB before bed I get woken up with some nasty heartburn every now and then.

Oh! This man is on to something. Do NOT EAT ANYTHING AFTER 7:23PM, IT'LL GO STRAIGHT TO YOUR GUT. Thanks, Sisay! :thumbup:

Seriously, shut up, and start reading before you give that kind of advice.

Do not fear. I not only floss, but I take a leak AND wash my hands.

Is my esteem restored in your eyes?

uhhh.... lemme check my packet here. If i eat this whole packet it is twenty calories. With four grams of protein. 0 fat 0 carbs (rounded down i'm sure).

I do it for full feeling/it tastes good.

I've took Builts advice and eat some peanuts and a few eggwhites right before I brush my teeth. Working out great so far, and I'm not starving when I wake up.

If I eat peanuts less than an hour or two before I bed I wake up in crippling agony. Sigh. It was the best place to slot them in, too.

Without them I have a milk/whey shake on non-lift days and ... uh... nothing really... on lift days. Bass Ackwards, I know. Looks like some cottage cheese might be in order if I can spare the cals.

I think thats what cutting is all about making sure you hit the most important times with the right food (PRE-workout, Post-workout, Before bed). This should be where most of your cals go and you fill in the rest with what you can.

My timing for meals and their composition (p/f/c) blows.

I've been subscribing to the theory that if you burn more calories than you consume you'll lose and that timing isn't all that important. It made sense to me. It's not working particularly well for me right now, though, so back to reading I am. :)

yes the way to lose weight is to create a caloric deficit. I was the same way. Last time I cut i dropped down to 1800cals, lasted about 1 month and I quit. This time I'm cutting 2200 cals and my lifts are going up and i'm losing about 1-2lbs per week. Its about finding a perfect balance.

1800 is my non-lift day target. :cry: I was hoping to cut on 2000 or 2100, since I failed to bulk at 3k, but nope.
