    Do you know the calorie/nutrient break down of this diet by any chance?

    In addition to what was posted about the PWO, your diet looks real solid. Good luck bro.

    I'm still playing with that....Rambo brought up an excellent point to the effect of insulin sensitivity being heightened during this cutting period resulting in the standard 100 grams (give or take) of PWO carbs being a bit of an overkill, as 60% or so of that will yield a similar impact during intense cutting only (not bulking for sure). As I said, i'm going to play around with that a bit and see what happens.

    The first thing I noticied was your carb intake looks really low. 100 grams of carbs is menial for a 2402lb+ guy. What was your carb intake while you were bulking? I'd like to see you keep your carbs much higher and gradually decrease them as your progress slows. The other thing I noticied was your carb meal on non-training days was placed in the evening. Is there a particular reason for this. Our body's metabolism naturally slows down as the day progresses. Since little physical activity is performed at night around your workout, consuming your meal earlier in the day is less likely to be stored as fat and more likely to be utilized throughout the rest of the day. Just my two cents.

    Any specific suggestions? You've left me sorta cliff-hanging here. Keep in mind that at 220lbs and working a fairly active job, these caloric levels are, in my estimation, pushing the lower limit of where I can be given my size and daily activity.

    okie..i can't really tell you what you should or should not do,as i'm also learning as much as i can myself now..what i meant was to play around with your macros for the day..and set it base on your activity level on that particular day..see how your body reacts to the change here and there..which is what i'm doing right now..i used to not understand this..but now i do..the type of food and when you injest them is more important than the calories itself....
