    What to eat to harden up??

    HI guys

    i want to know what is the best idea and what pro's do to harden there muscles, diet wise i mean.

    IT looks like my muscles are soft and cant get those awesome lookin cuts even when i brought my body fat down once b4.

    I plan on doin winny (which i havent done) next cycle but i dont think that will be the complete answer.

    I mean im afraid if i cut my carbs or cals that my muscles will still be soft ,and Ill just lose size and stength,im wondering if there is a secret way to eat to harden up?

    right now after a weight training workout , i have 30g protein shake immediatly, then go home and drink 1000 cal shake (powder, bananna,strawberries,skim milk) Then eat real food the rest of the day.
    Eat about 4000 cals a day now, but when i cut how much how much should i lower it by?

    right now 5'8 188lbs, 32" waist, 14.5% BF

    Concrete?

    Nah but seriously, #1 priority is to ditch the salt big time.

    I am curious as to a proper cutting up diet though... Will be hitting a decent cutting cycle this summer so food intake will have to be in accordance.

    I agree, watch out for excess carbs and esp carbs with high GI values.

    Along with what these guys are saying, sugar will give you that soft appearance. Just eat clean (as you probably already know) increase protein, lower your carbs, especially in the evening, and watch your fats. Yes you need 'em but keep them at a good level.
