    Carb Nite Cut questions

    So with the spring/summer approaching and the end of my winter bulk (+25#'s over the winter) coming to an end I'm starting to get ready to cut, and want to try doing a carb nite cut (first time) to maintain as much muscle as possible. My question is what are my meals/foods going to be looking like during the week. I'll list what I think I'll be eating and if you see something missing or if you know some tips and tricks that would help me out that would be great. favorite low carb meals/foods ect.

    Protein shakes (probably will have to throw an extra one in while cutting on top of already having one in the morning and after my workout)
    meats - chicken, beef, pork, fish
    Cheese - low fat
    Nuts - almonds/peanuts
    vegetables - I could use some insight in which would be best
    yogurt - low-fat greek no fruit
    fruit - NONE

    I currently use RESULTS which I'm guessing I will have to drop from my diet? (50g carbs) and switch to just plain creatine?

    Thanks in advance.

    If you're going the low-carb route.... stick to the higher fat options (hard cheese, full fat yogurt). When you cut the fat, typically sugar is added for flavoring.

    Pepperoni and cheese is a good snack.
    Sugar free jello when you get a sweet tooth.
    Watch the carbs in things like nuts
    Seasonings and carb free sauces/dressings are clutch.
    Franks Red Hot for chicken.

    Basically, center most meals around a meat, a fat source (good oil or nut), and green veggies (fiber, micronutrients, lower carbs typically).

    I'd also add psylium husk fiber tabs a few times a day. Make sure you're getting enough fiber and water.

    I think the big key is keeping hunger at bay like any other diet, but also keep the sweet tooth at bay as well. I used sugar free jello with a little whipped cream as a snack or a piece of 90%+ dark chocolate. This will ease your mind when you want to dive face first into a bowl of fruit or candy haha. Another tip is to freeze diet soda with a toothpick or something in it to use as ice pops.

    If you get a sweet tooth, you can throw in an Atkin's bar once in a while. They have low plenty of low net carb choices.


    Supplements I currently take: Nitrean , BCAA , Creatine 500 , Multi-Plus , Fish Oil

    no need to jump straight into low carb..
    right now im 12 weeks out from my show and im eatin 3500 cals over 400g of carbs and losing 1.5 pounds a week. you can manipulate the body in other ways.. All low carbs are going to do is make you look flat and exhausted.
