    First Time Cut

    Ok, I think I have read enough around here to put together a good cutting plan for myself. I am trying to lose (with one 'o') around 10-15 lbs for a trip to FL in march. I recently tried a short bulk in which I gained around 20 lbs and now I wish to try my short cut, hopefully it will be a valuable learning experience and I want to use what Ive learned so far to bulk to around 200 at the end of the summer...

    But I digress.

    I didnt like fitday for my bulk, mainly because I ate too much and didnt keep a record of what I did eat (thats not to say I didnt eat right...), but for my cut It seems a bit easier. I bulked at around 4000 cals, but my metabolism sped up greatly at the time (before I was maintaing on around 3000). I feel that around 2300 calories would be a good place to start my cut, as I expect my metabolism to slow down a bit.

    I am taking a multivitamin, and am getting fish oil caps (to replace olive oil). Im not sure if it matters, but I am supplementing with creatine as well.

    My macros for a sample day broke down to the following-

    Fat- 77g
    sat- 19g
    poly- 12g
    mono- 39g

    carbs- 97g
    fiber- 10g (need to get that up to around 20?)

    protein- 250g

    As you can see, about half of my cals come from protein, around a third from fat and the rest from carbs.

    And once again, I wish to lose ~1.5lbs a week untill I reach my goal (around 8 weeks).

    Thanks
    -Jon
