    Am in a cutting phase right now and have been using this diet for almost two weeks now. Let me know if you guys see any problems with it. So far its going well I think. I'm down 3-4 lbs after two weeks. I'm trying to make it give me as much energy as possible so I can continue to increase poundage in the gym. I currently am 6'0, 180lbs, 10-11% bf and want to be down to about 6-8%bf by May but keep as much muscle mass as possible in the process.


    10:30am - 1 cup Oatmeal (183, 33, 8, 3.5)
    1 scp Protein (50,2,10,1)
    1 tsp Peanut Butter (48,2,1,4)
    5g Glutamine (20,0,5,0)

    1:00pm - 1 Bagel (216,40,7,2)
    6 egg whites (100, 0, 21, 0)
    1 Whole Egg (75, 1, 6, 5)

    4:30pm(post-workout) - 1 Myoplex (280,24,42,2)
    1 cup Milk (158,23,15,0.5)
    1 Banana (110,28,1,0)
    5g Glutamine (20,0,5,0)

    6:45pm - 250g pasta (319,64,11,2)
    4oz. Chicken (186,0,33,5)

    9:10pm - 1 cup dry Oats (156,27,3,2)
    1 scp Protein (50,2,10,1)
    1 tsp Peanut Butter (48,2,1,4)

    11:30pm - 5g glutamine (20,0,5,0)

    12:05am(pre-bed) - 1 can Tuna (180,0,41,2)

    Totals
    Cals = 2200
    Carbs = 248g
    Protein = 225g
    Fat = 34g

    Some final notes:
    I eat a banana right after my workout with the glutamine for an insulin spike and about 10-20 minutes later have the myoplex + milk.

    On a non-workout day (2x/week) I don't have the 4:30 meal so my cals are only around 1650 on those days.

    The stats on the Oatmeal are a bit off. Those stats are of when the oatmeal is cooked. Can someone give me the stats on 1 cup "uncooked" oats.

    Thanks for any suggestions on the diet. Peace.

    I would increase the fat and adjust the other two macronutrients.

    What is the benefit of keeping my fat so high while cutting? I'm still using carbs as my main energy source

    What is the benefit of having 70g of fat in a cutting diet when my main energy source is already carbs?

    The purpose of having higer fats when cutting is so that the low carbs your are taking in are reserved for other functions like muscle repair and the general well being of your body whilst fats are used as energy. Thats the secret to cutting ..... carb maniplation. The reason to have Essential Fatty Acids in your diet are ample .... mucle recovery, better joints healthier skin .... etc etc... just don't have too much.

    Just one thing about your diet ..... between your second meal and third ... there is a 3 and a half hour gap. No a real issue, but I personally think it's too long. Also, maybe try and have your protein shake with water after your workout as milk has a tendancy to slow the digestion process down a little. You've created your insulin spike for a reason ... to get nutrians in fast.

    Also, are you getting enough sleep .... what time do you go get up ??

    Hope this helps.

    Yup, check the time gaps, like Yates said, theres more than one. Also, personally, i would go higher protein one some days, protein is especially important when cutting.

    Good luck
