i would say your fats are low. you want to shoot for .5g/lbm, so you need close to 100g. I personally dont think you need that much protein, but thats me.

if it were me i would knock some of the carbs down and try to add more healthy fats.

Just curious as to why, I think one mistake I had on my cut was having too many fats and not enough carbs. Near the end of the cut my strengths were starting to go down, glycogen depletion I think came into play. If you dont have high enough carbs your going to have to do more refeeds.Originally Posted by Optimum08
I think during a cut you're supposed to teach your body to burn fat instead of sugar (carbs).
Fats are satiating, and are good for keeping blood sugar stable (helps control hunger, etc).
At least a half a gram per pound LBM is what seems to float around many of the more educated articles I've read on the boards; there's peer-reviewed research that suggests this is optimal for test production.
Carbs are yummy, but they make you hungry. Eat 'em in the meal before and or after you lift, but keep the starches and sugars away from your other meals and you'll have the hunger control that comes from lowering carbs, and the ergogenic assistance that comes from having carbs around for your lifts.
Read my cutting link (in my sig) to see how I do this if you like.
