Cutting Diet? Trying to drop 4% bf
Planning a Cutting Cycle/Diet!
Weight: 190 lbs
Goal BF%: 7%
I am going to go on a CKD diet with carb ups Friday Night till Saturday Night.
Here is my diet:
190 (Bodyweight) x 12.5 = 2375 (maintenance).
2375 (Maintenance) - 500 = 1875 calories per day
I am going to stay under 20g of Carbs/Day
I will be taking R-ALA during the carb ups to help me stay in ketosis.
Protein Goal Per Day - 200-225g
Fat Goal Per Day - 225-250g
I have read to keep fat intake higher than protien intake? But i find it hard to get over 200g of fat per day unless i eat tons of mayo! I don't know if i can deal with that. Does this matter that much to keep fat intake higher than protien intake?
I do have keto-stix to test if i am in ketosis.
I will do cardio almost everyday for at least 30min - 45min on an empty stomach.
I will drink 2 gallons of water per day.
1. How does my diet look?
2. On the carb-ups, how much carbs should i take in?
3. How long will it take to achieve my goal of dropping 4% bf?

Be sure to take glutamine to spare your muscles during calorie deficit.

I hate to tell you this but you (unless you have AMAZING genetics) be able to get to 4% naturally. 6-8 yes, but not 4.

That is basically the same thing I am doing right now. It has not compromised any muscle as of yet (I am 4 weeks into the diet), and I have lost a very noticeable amount of fat. You never know until you try, could work for you, could not, it all depends on your bodies reaction to the reduction of calories & carbs.

As well, R-ALA during a carb up is NOT going to help you STAY in ketosis!
