Ok, I'm fairly cut now, really low body fat percentage, probably around 7-10. I don't eat healthy at all, I eat whatever I want though. So if I were to diet, could I really cut? Or would it not even make a difference. I want to have maximum cut, and thats what I've been wondering. Cause I eat lots of junk food, and fatty foods etc.., and I look really good. So if I started eating really heatlhy, and start paying attention to diet/nutrition foods. Could I really cut like bad?
And how long would it take before I started to notice a difference?
Depends on how well you planned your cut ... if you measure your body fat with calipers, it might take a couple of weeks before you notice it drop, although it might take longer to notice a difference in the mirror.
Oh, and whats a good list of healthy foods, that would be perfect for cutting.
There are fruits/vegetables/oats/brownrice/fish/eggwhites, what else is good? I also have a question about protein shakes, should I be taking 1-2 a day? Or is that unhealthy?
This is a summary from John Berardi's site:
Protein: fish, eggs, chicken, cottage cheese, milk protien isolates, whey-casein blends, beef
Carbohydrates: vegetables, mixed beans, fruits. oatmeal, mixed-grain bread, protein-enriched pasta
Fats: flax oil, olive oil, mixed nuts, fish oil
As for the protein shakes, they are fine, as long as they fit into the overall scheme.
Thanks a lot man, for the help.
Post some pics and we will be better able to determine what some dieting might do and make some workout recommendations to reach your goals. There is a def difference between cut with muscle and just plain skinny.
Which came first, the chicken or the egg? I really don't give a **** I'm gonna eat em both!
