    Cutting - back on track

    After a failed attempt at cutting this summer due to a friends death, I'm finally back on track.

    What did I learned while I was cutting?

    2100 cals a day made me lose too much strength and size - bump up my caloric intake next cut!

    I also changed my workout from 3 sets per exercise to 1. Made a hella difference in size and strength. This is the second time I took this approach to my workouts and the results speak for themselves.

    On to the diet: I will be following this diet until I get down to at least 10%bf

    Meal 1:
    8 egg whites,2 scoop protein, 1/2 cup oatmeal P:60 C:28

    Workout

    Meal 2:
    PWO P:44g C:88g

    Meal 3:
    Protein shake, Lean Protein, 1/2 cup oatmeal/no carbs and 2 tbsp flax on non workout days P:30 C:28/F:28

    Meal 4: Protein Shake/Lean Protein, 2tbsp flax P:69 F:28

    Meal 5: Veggies, Lean Protein P:30

    Meal 6: Protein shake, 2 tbsp flax P:69 F:28

    My current Bodyweight is 213 when cutting I the first time I dropped 15Lbs in two weeks. I'm assuming about 10lbs of water maybe 5lbs fat. Hopefully this time I'll be losing a little slower.

    bro, you need to cut back on the amount of shakes you use. I would try to get most of your protein from real food and save the whey for the morning and post workout. Other than that you seem to be going in the right direction. I would also add fibourous veggies to the majority of your meals. Sorry to hear about your friend and good luck.

    How much of a difference do you think it would actually make if I changed more meals to using real food. I know the body expends more energy processing real food rather than the shakes but, is it substantial?

    Nothing like real food for metabolism purposes and satiety.

    So I should supplement my meals with protein powder, not protein poweder as my meals or no protein powder other than in the morning and PWO? One of the big reasons I use powder in the morning is because I get up so early and workout and it digests pretty quickly.

    yeah thats a good start...to supplement the meals with protein instead of the other way around

    Add more fiberous veg , and i see all your fat coming from flax

    you need saturated fats , along with omeg-6(flax has little omega 6)

    Id add more butter , Animal fat , cold press olive oil
