    Jasc's First Cutting Log

    Hello Ladies and Gents and welcome to my cutting log. This is one of those rare occasions where I'm not posting smartass comments or posts in jest, but don't worry, I'm sure there will still be some in here anyway. This will be my first logged cut, so feel free to say "hi", comment, poke fun, critique my posts, and subscribe "at your own risk".

    Goal: Maintain/gain LBM while cutting to 10% or less

    Current stats:
    5'8"
    182 lbs.
    16-17% bf
    -narrow frame
    -all fat stored in stomach, pecs, face

    Supplements:
    500mg/wk Prop
    12.5mg ed Exemestane
    5,000u vitamin D
    500mg vitamin C
    5mg creatine mono
    1 Opti-men multi-vit
    2g glutamine
    caffeine anhydrous on occasion

    Diet:
    calorie goal - 1950 calories
    style - carb cycling
    Monday,Tuesday,Wednesday - moderate carbs (100g)
    Thursday,Friday,Saturday - low/no carbs (0 starchy carbs)
    Sunday - carb refeed/cheat day (250g)

    Basic moderate diet: (P/C/F) Calories
    Meal 1: 1.5 scoops whey, 1 tbsp natty pb, 1/4 cup wg oats 42/20/12 351
    Meal 2: 6.5oz chicken, 1 cup broccoli 39/4/2 193
    Meal 3: 6.5oz chicken, 1 cup wg rice 41/33/3 313
    Meal 4 (post-wo): 1.5 scoops whey, 1/4 cup oats 39/17/4 251
    Meal 5 (shortly after meal 4): 8oz 93/7 ground beef, 2 slices 100% wg sugar-free bread 52/24/19 480
    Meal 6: 2 cans tuna, 2 cups romaine, 1 tbsp olive oil 53/3/16 336

    Total macros: 266/101/56 1924 calories (according to Fitness Pal, standard calculations put me around 1970)

    Basic low/no diet will be very similar except all starchy carbs will be removed and replaced with larger portions of protein, minimal fats, and green/leafy vegetables.

    I will be on a 4 day split
    Monday - Chest/Abs
    Tues - Back
    Thurs - Legs/Abs
    Fri - Shoulders/Arms
    Sat/Sun - Recover

    I hope to achieve these goals with minimal cardio (15 min low/moderate intensity post workout)
    -dependent on results I may do 30-60min cardio on Sat.

    The fun begins on Monday 3/18, after my St. Patty's day debauchery.

    Day 1 update:

    My diet was on point with the exception of a SF Monster pre-wo, which really wasn't too bad for my macros.

    My energy level was down a bit due to only consuming 100 carbs, less than half of what I typically consume and this is where the Monster came in. I was also very hungry throughout the day, but this was to be expected.

    My workout was suprisingly great. After a weekend of wayy too much Guiness, Bailey's, Jameson, and green Labatt's coupled with cutting my carbs drastically I expected to suffer in the gym. However, my mental focus and strength were on point.

    Did you come out of a bulk, or just was eating whatever, whenever?

    No bulk here

    I had some issues and got off track... slacked on my workout routine and ate whatever, including a lot of fast food.

    Now the tide has turned and it's time to get back on track.

    Day #2

    Diet was on point except for some choc popcorn I caved on. This put my carbs out of whack by about 20, after I docked my pre-wo rice.

    My weight is down 2 lbs, most likely attributed to water. My face looks slimmer and my energy level was below average thanks to low carbs as well. As a result I supplemented 200mg caffeine anhydrous, split in to 2 doses.

    The gym went great again. My energy was good after the caffeine and my strength was on par, but I seemed to tire easier. On a positive note, my veins popped even more than normal.

    It was damn good! never had it before

    Plus, the main boss brought it in. It'd be rude to refuse it right?

    Day #3 update (delayed)

    Diet was on par yesterday. I subbed casein pudding for my tuna meal, great decision and still nailed my macros.

    Scheduled off-day so no gym for this guy

    Energy levels were good and if being dragged around the mall is considered cardio, chaulk me down for 60+ min.

    The no-carb fun starts today.

    I'll hold ya to that

    Homemade. This particular pudding had 1.5 scoops casein, 1 Tbsp natty PB, sf Almond milk, and a splash of sf Italian Sweet Cream coffee creamer. Depending on my goals/macro allowance I also sometimes add in WG oats, egg whites, cott cheese, cocao powder, coffee, crushed almonds, whey, cinnamon, or whatever else is healthy and fits.

    It's pretty tasty and versatile. Lately I've been adding very little liquid and it comes out almost like cookie dough.

    Cookie dough... man, you had to mention that when I'm starting a 3 day no starchy carb run? I used to like you...

    Day #4 update - First day of no carbs... ever!

    Today actually went very well. Caffeine was my friend and burgers just aren't the same without buns. Aside from having no wheat for my meat, it really was a nice change. I was able to increase my chicken portions, use more olive oil, and add extra natty PB to my shakes. Win

    My energy levels were better than expected and I felt lighter on my feet. The bloated feeling from eating rice wasn't missed in the least.

    The gym went great. My legs still feel like jello and I almost fell walking up the stairs. Mission accomplished.

    Official diet change:

    I've given in to the fact that my morning shake is no longer suitable.

    After drinking it around 8:30 I starve until almost noon. I really don't want to jeopardize lbm and it feels like my body is eating itself. Not to mention making me irritable and sick to my stomach.

    Starting tomorrow I'll be eating eggs in place of the shake.

    Sounds good to me.. Keep macros relatively same which means you may need to ditch the yolks

    maybe add some egg whites to your shakes, or cottage cheese.

    try to start your first meal earlier and eat another meal in between, say around 10.

    just some suggestions, but you have to do what fits into your schedule

    Definitely.. With the yolks being soo calorie dense most will have to be pitched . 8 eggs and 2 yolks would be nice if it fits.

    *edit - 6 eggs with 2 to snack on an hour or so later would be even better

    The problem with adding to my shakes is that it would make me have to cut calories later and I'm already spread thin.

    My morning shake is around 350 calories, so if I chop it and eat clean I can get a pretty nice meal in there and hopefully an egg or 2 to snack on later. I don't think the calories are the problem, I think it's just that I don't have any solid food in my stomach for about 3 hrs after waking.

    Day #5 update

    Damn is it hard to not eat carbs! I've eaten enough chicken and broccoli to feed a family and still can not get full. It seems like I eat and 10 minutes later I'm starving. The first day wasn't soo bad, but today has been rough. At this rate, tomorrow will be hell. I've been fighting fierce carb cravings all day..

    The gym went very well and even though I felt like I had no energy, my strength was actually up. My muscles seemed flat, yet very vascular and my midsection also seemed tighter. Suprisingly my weight still held at a strong 180. I was very pleased to see this after feeling soo depleted.

    The gym went very well and even though I felt like I had no energy, my strength was actually up. My muscles seemed flat, yet very vascular and my midsection also seemed tighter. Suprisingly my weight still held at a strong 180. I was very pleased to see this after feeling soo depleted.
    Carb up Sunday, right?
