Middle of the night eating while cutting
During bulking I wake everynight and eat. My body is used to this. During a cutting period, should this be stopped? This 4am meal prevents catabolism, but will it affect cutting?

If you want to get up to eat then go for it..... I like the approach of not counting calories per day, but instead just making sure I eat certain macros at different times of the day. So if you can fit in a regular size pro/fat meal in the middle of the night, I don't see why it would hurt you if the rest of your daily dietary approach and cardio is on.

Can only help you if you are already used to getting up to eat a meal, of course as long as this meal is within your allotted kcals needed for your cutting phase.

allotted kcals= the amount of kcals you want to consume in a day

for cutting you need to watch your fat levels. Almonds and peanuts are incomplete sources of protein and quite a bit of fat (although its healthy fat you still don't want to go crazy)
Red meat is fine but it has to be a low fat cut. I personally prefer to stick with chicken although I get so **** sick of it!
