Is it true that you can't get completely shredded by just cutting back on carbs a lot, eating mostly protein, and doing lots of cardio? I heard the only way to get really hard and ripped is to do the above and take anti-estrogens? Is this true? Are estrogen blockers a must if you're trying to get incredible cuts?

If you get very lean then you'll look fantastic whether you are holding water or not.
The amount of water you hold subdermally doesn't depend just on your estrogen levels, sodium - potassium levels make a difference too plus other things such as stress etc.
They say that all the pro's etc. take anti-estrogens before a competition to help dry out but this isn't all they do. Many drop sodium intake before a competition; use diruretics and god knows what else.
Best thing I can recommend is that you get ripped and get a experienced trainer / competitor to look you over and tell you if you are holding water or whether it's just a little bit more fat that needs to be burnt off.
If you are on the gear or think you have naturally high oestrogen levels then look into taking proviron .
All the best,
