    how is this cutting diet

    well i am 175 lbs and 5'11, for the past 4 months i've been eating around.. 95 g carbs 110 g protein 30 g fat.. this diet has allowed me to gain muscle but, also a nice amount of fat and now i want to get rid of that, so i need to know how low to go on the carbs, and i will have to increase the protein too

    diet plan

    tuna - 30 g protein
    wheat bread - 26 g carbs

    post workout shake
    37 g protein
    15 g carb
    15 g fat - natural peanut butter

    chicken breast
    vegetables
    potato
    45 g protein
    15 g carb

    4 egg whites
    15 g protein

    cottage cheese - before bed
    15 g protein
    5 g carb

    total
    protein 142, Carbs 61, fats 15

    Fats seem low i guess i need flax oil or something

    WTF? That's only 950 (new plan) or 1100 (old plan) calories/day bro! Are you insane? 12 year old girls need more cals than that.... no way in heck that is what a man who weighs 175 is eating that little every day!

    How old are you and how many calories/day do you burn?

    i figured out my new plan is more like 1400 calories as an estimate.. im 22 yrs old.. i guess i have a really slow metabolism, but my dinner after workout is usually pretty big so thats a large chunk of calories there

    calories i burn per day.. i have no idea.. i have a hard workout 5 days a week for 1 hour and 15 minutes, then other 2 days i run

    Re: how is this cutting diet

    diet plan

    tuna - 30 g protein
    wheat bread - 26 g carbs

    I'd ditch the bread, tuna is ok but not what I'd prefer to eat in the morning lol. For carbs try 1/2 cup oats which is only 27g of carbs.


    post workout shake
    37 g protein
    15 g carb
    15 g fat - natural peanut butter

    Lose the fat, you do not want hardly any fat in your pwo shakes or meals. Also I'd raise your carbs here a bit since your muscles need them after your workout


    chicken breast
    vegetables
    potato
    45 g protein
    15 g carb

    This looks good, ut would prefer rice instead of the potatoe


    4 egg whites
    15 g protein


    Try maybe 6-8 egg whites or some tuna tossed in with some greens for a salad or something


    cottage cheese - before bed
    15 g protein
    5 g carb

    total
    protein 142, Carbs 61, fats 15

    Fats seem low i guess i need flax oil or something


    Just my suggestions but this diet needs some work. It looks awfully low in cals and all.

    I would say right off hand to ditch all carbs, except for breakfast and you postworkout meal. and try to keep it under 50grams (mainly veggies) a day for three days. Then on the fourth day carb up to around 100grams with good clean foods. Be careful not to get over 100 though, and make damn sure its clean, no cheating. But eat all the protein, and i wouldnt worry about calories untill you start getting into the 2500-3000 range, which your far from.
