Hello all. Pretty new to the board, but i've been reading here for quite a few weeks.
I did a search, read guidelines etc, looking for some way to narrow down my question but didn't find anything as specific.
I am 6'1. 212 lbs. 19 yrs old. My body fat lvl is 12%. I am currently in a cutting phase. I work out 4-6 days a week. I am currently doing 0 cardio, as i was doing way too mutch during my bulking phase.
Anyways, i've been fit-daying my diet, which is slowly being refined, as i've only recently got my diet for my very first cut in order. Any suggestions???
Well, to the point. I realize I need a minimum of 215 grams of protein (which is near impossible to do!) in order to maintain muscle mass. My 1 pound a week loss requires me to lower my daily caloric intake to roughly 2500 a day, Keeping that in mind, What should be the percentage of calories that I take in from protein, fat, carbs? As of now, I'm trying to have a high protein caloric intake, (50% or better) a fair amount of fat, and as low a carb intake as possible.
What are the suggestions? I'm considering having to add another all protein meal to my diet to both up the calories and upp the protein. I'm usually about 2000 or so calories for the day, which is much less than where I should be (500 calories or so). Is this a bad thing?
Also, any tips on getting in that extra protein!
Supplements I'm taking, ZMApm, NoXplode, HotRox, Ephadrin HCL, 100% optimum whey (going to get on Nitrean or something with Casein in it after i'm done with this horrible tasting stuff).
what is the ideal cocktail mix for caffein/ephedrin in mg?
