    While cutting, shake after lifting or not?

    While on a cutting diet, lifting and doing cardio 4-5 times a week would you guys still have your post workout shake or not? Just trying to cut calories where I can....

    You're trying to lose fat not muscle so I'd vote yes.

    When cutting I like to eat the same type of foods as bulking/maintaining, also the same amount of times a day. All that really changes is the amount per serving..... So if you do a shake any other time still hit the shake.

    I've always gone by the rule: as long as you get your macros in.. But it's just been a habit of mine that ill get a shake post workout no matter than I'm bulking or cutting

    100% vote yes CUT or BULK phase

    cut cals in carbs after this and between sleep.

    Maybe throw in a few low carb days on days off to lessen the weekly take in.

    how much do you weigh and whats your bf%, cals shouldn't need to be cut so much that its hard to find places to cut them from.

    eating the right amount in the correct macro on top of cardio is all one needs for tools, shake or food either way

    In a cut phase we try and maintain LBM not gain or loose, even though we do loose we try to maintain as much as possible. dont pull protein

    Yeh I think it was ltn that got me to the way of thinking.

    Just eat the same amount n add more cardio to drop bf% so far I'm still gaining muscle and losing bf%. Bit by bit my abs are working there way thru. Long way off to perfect. But. Do we ever see ourselves as perfect or keep setting goals haha.

    I've stopped buying protein powder. Milk, peanut butter , and oats make a great tasting shake with good consistency. You can vary the ingredients to adjust calories ie skim milk, 1, 2 or 4%. Omit pb. Has very little fat just oats in skim milk but good protein and carbs.

    You know I might give this a go. Don't laugh but I've never even tried peanut butter lol. Guess its just not big here in the UK. But I'm up for any good shake alternative. Sounds a good for an am shake with my eggs.
