    Cutting.

    Say I want to get down from 178 to 163.
    Which method would lose more muscle mass?
    Using Xenedrine or straight out cardio every morning.
    Assuming diet good.

    You mean, lose more fat? I'd say use Xenadrine throughout the day as it says. Then do cardio 4-5 times a week in the morning on an empty stomach. Take the Xenadrine beforehand of course....

    I don't see why you would need that much cardio to lose fat. I do cardio just 2 times a week and shedding fat at a pretty good pace. If you're concerned about fat loss you need to check your diet first, no matter how much cardio you are doing, if you don't have a good diet you're not going to lose fat.

    Should I avoid fat in my diet if I am cutting?
    It seems like the only difference between the cutting and the bulking diet is the calorie difference right?

    You need to at least have around 50-70 grams of fat a day when cutting, if trying to lose fat it's better to drop carbs. Right, difference between cutting and bulking is calories.

    If I didn't change my diet at all from my bulking cycle and just added 4 days of cardio. I never did cardio while I was bulking. Wouldn't that just turn into a cutting cycle naturally without altering my diet much?

    If both approaches worked, which one would be easier? Unfortunately, I am both lazy and hungry.

    For your consideration:

    I simply cut the calories each week, by cutting the carbs (already had a low-fat diet) and upped the cardio from 2 days p/week to 4 days p/week. (same duration, 45 minutes, but at a more intense level)

    Seems to be working well, about a pound a week so far, with no strength loss and little if any noticable muscle loss.
    Best Regards,
