This is my very first cut and am pretty lost of a good diet plan.

Ive read loads of diferent vews about cycling carbs, for example eat 3 normal meals containg carbs, ie breakfast, lunch and dinner (PWO on training days), then the other 3 just small snacks, such as whey and veggies.

Does any 1 have a sample outline of one that you have done and known to be effective just to give me a good idea to start of with.

I currently weigh 180lb about 15% bf. I want to get to about 12 - 10% before i contunie doing a slow clean bulk.

Cheers

Meat and Veggies. Read about maintenance calories, macronutrients, and protein/carb/fat ratios. Join fitday.com, track your macro's for one week, and make adjustments.

What specifically about the above bolded?

Mr. D, I'm not sure what your asking. In the process of finding his maintenance calories, he should devlop how much p/c/f needed for his goals.

I think he's trying to get at the fact that it's not the ratios of p/f/c that matter, but their "dosings", relative to your LBM.

Built, I think that's what I was trying to say - lol. So, the amount of p/c/f in accordance to his LBM needs to be considered for bf loss?

Calories need to be considered for weight loss. To ensure more of it is from fat and less of it is from muscle, you need sufficient protein and fat, to be sure, and heavy lifting to preserve LBM.

My buddy and his girlfriend both recently completed 12 week carb-cycling diets.

He finished 2nd in the Mr. Michigan contest, she took 1st place.

I find fitday sometimes is difficult to find custom foods and stuff like that

You don't FIND custom foods - you programme them in.

Look for stuff on nutritiondata or the USDA nutrient database.
