    great post! simple and to the point! please dont get caught up with myths like doing anymore than 20 minutes burns muscle, and if you work at high intensity your body burns more muscle. You burn a higher % of total fat in grams at higher intensities, just make sure u leave enough time to recover between sessions. i.e. not doing high intensity cardio everyday, remember you will be weight training too which causes deficit hence, the lower heart rate cardio workouts. every workout has its purpose

    Did not know about fruit - noted

    Don't know what I am going to do without milk - I drink about 60 oz of skim a day with my protein. I think I will cut that in half and mix water for the rest, that would only be about 48 grams a day in sugar from the milk.

    I don't know if I could get by with just water and protein powder, I might have to try though.

    Good info on the post cardio meals and how it is best to have that and the weights split up.

    Confused about Dextrose, the amounts listed are WAY outside the recommended dose on the label maybe I am reading it wrong.

    Would like some info on other supplements that are good for cutting if anyone has good ones they got results from.

    Can someone please tell me what this means. Thank You.

    Q: What about cycling carb intake?
    A: Obviously on non workout days you will be without a shake, so you will be auto-cycling. It works well that way.

    Itís about time we had a decent full length post on cuttingÖ

    Letís get a few things straightÖ
    1. All of the insights Iím about to provide are not person-specific. What that means is that it is a general guideline, not a bible.
    2. I truly do believe that bodybuilding is 80% diet. You can lift your ass off daily, and still look horrible if you arenít eating right.
    3. You are what you eat. Itís just that simple.

    The BASICS-
    1.Postworkout Nutrition- Iím a firm believer that PWO nutrition is hands down the most important aspect of dieting. It is within the 15 minutes after a workout that your body is in dire need of nutrients. It is a completely anabolic state, and what you take in can be optimized to ensure maximum results. A general rule of thumb is 40-60 grams whey protein, and double the amount of whey in carbohydrates (50% dextrose/50% maltodextrin).

    2. Carbs- You are **** right, carbs. In a strict cutting diet the majority of your carbs should come in the form of PWO nutrition, and the remainder in breakfast. Fibrous veggies are a staple, but keep in mind that they donít count towards intake, as they have negligible impacts on blood sugar levels. (Exceptions: Carrots, Peas) All high glycemic carbs outside of PWO should be avoided. The best sources of low GI carbs can be found in oatmeal and brown rice, as well as yams.

    3. Protein- You need tons. 1.5-2.0 grams per pound of lean bodyweight is a good general rule of thumb. You should take in a good portion of your protein in the source of real meals, avoid intaking too many shakes, as real food comes to a better benefit. The list foods with high protein bioavailability is extensive, and I will only cover a few, (Egg whites, Lean steak, Chicken breast, the list goes on foreverÖ.).

    4. Fats- Guess what? You need fat to lose fat. We are talking about the granddaddy of fats, the EFA (Essential Fatty Acid). Good sources of fat are ( Flax Oil, Nuts, Salmon, Olive Oil).

    5. The separation of Carbs and Fats- This is a hotly debated issue, but again, in my opinion, an important aspect nonetheless. Remember that it is often when you eat items and with what you eat them that is more important than what you are eating. A mouthful, I know, but stay with me. Remember that when you take in certain carbs, you can spike your insulin levels. If you are taking in fats when your insulin has been spiked, you are allowing the basic laws of physiology to act out, and you allow for a higher propensity for fat storage. Separation is key. The sample diet will give a good example of how to separate them.




    6. Supplements-

    Glutamine: Helps prevent catabolism when cutting. Best used in dosages of 10grams daily, 5 grams before cardio, 5 grams at another interval, but not after workout as it fights for absorption with the glutamine peptides in whey.
    ALA/R-ALA- Gets my supplement of the day award. R-ALA is effective in lowering the spike of insulin when certain carbs are consumed. I could give you a dissertation on the stereoentisomeric properties of the R, but all you need to know is that it has been found to shuttle carbohydrates away from adipose and into myocytes. Translation: Away from fat cells, into muscle cells. Itís a supplement, however, not a miracle worker. Itís not a crutch, and wonít do anything about fat intake. ALA and R-ALA can also aid in the expedition of the ketogenic state. Remember that if you buy R-ALA that you supplement it with Biotin. Glucorell-R is prepackaged with it. If you can afford it, go for it. As far as dosage, with the R, you are looking at 1-2 pills of Glucorell R for each 30-40grams of carb intake.
    Protein and Carb Shakes: Iím not going to cover protein, because even if you canít afford it, you should sell a kidney to get some. Carb drinks are rather convenient, and companies offer pre mixed dosages, (CarboHit, Glycoload, UltraFuel). Dextrose and Maltodextrin can be bought from most supplement stores or online.

    www.allsportsnutition.com

    7. Cheating- Cheating is essential. Why? Remember, the body runs on homeostasis, it likes to keep balance. After eating so well after a week, your body begins to adjust, and fat loss over time will not be as rapid. The other extremely important aspect is mental sanity. So many diets crash and fail because people donít give themselves a chance to breath. Remember, cheating is not an opportunity for you to pillage the entire mall food court. Shoot for a cheat meal, not an all out binge. A fast food value meal can be 2,000 calories. Eat that 3 times on one day, and youíve consumed 6,000 calories. And thatís not good in any case.

    8. Cardio- Cardio and cutting usually go hand in hand. I won't go into specifics about length, other than cardio shouldn't be excessive. 45 minutes to one hour daily should be sufficient, and should be performed on an empty stomach.




    Sample Diet:
    Note: This is a sample diet for a 200 pound gentleman who is wishing to cut. We can assume his BF to be around 15%. This diet will NOT work for you if those criteria donít apply to you; however it is easy to customize the below diet to take in account your own statistics. It is the principles that are applicable.. I am not going to post the total amount of calories, only the carb, protein and fat macros for the whole day.


    Meal 1:
    Lean Protein, 1/2 cup oatmeal

    Meal 2:
    Protein shake/Lean Protein (2 tbsp flax

    Meal 3:
    Veggies, Lean Protein

    Workout

    Meal 4:
    PWO Nutrition

    Meal 5:
    Veggies, Lean Protein, 1/2 cup rice or oatmeal.

    Meal 6:
    Shake with Flax

    That turns into approximately 300 grams protein, 130 grams Carbs, and 50 grams of fat.

    *Reminder: This is a PRIMER. Itís not mean to be comprehensive.





    Here comes the fun part: Question and AnswerÖ.

    Q: What about dairy?
    A: If you donít mind a soft look, fat free cottage cheese is an excellent caseinate source, but as for milks- way too much processed sugar. NO.

    Q: Should I do a keto diet?
    A: Unless you are morbidly obese, or would like to drag your wilted muscles behind you, stay away from keto. Again, thatís my opinion. You can see my previous posts for my anti-keto ranting.

    Q: What about cycling carb intake?
    A: Obviously on non workout days you will be without a shake, so you will be auto-cycling. It works well that way.

    Q: Is sodium an issue?
    A: Outside of the bloating issue, or if you have high cholesterol, no.

    Q. How do I make my meals not taste like cardboard?
    A. Be creative. Mix in some sugar free jam or splenda in your oats, some hot sauce or soy sauce on your meats, or pick up some sugar free ketchup.

    Q. I donít like old fashioned oats. Can I eat the pre mixed oats with fruit?
    A. No. Be a man. Those mixes have ridiculous amounts of sugar.

    Q. What about fruit?
    A: Fruit replenishes glycogen stores in the liver, and in my opinion, is not to be a staple of a strict cutting diet, with a few exceptions.

    Q: Can I eat steak while cutting?
    A: Definitely. Make sure itís a leaner cut.

    And with this post I take a sabbatical. Iíd like to thank ~Swolecat~ for his influence, and to thank all of you who may have indirectly annoyed me enough to result in this elongated post. If I missed anything, or am horribly wrong on anything, feel free to PM me, and I will edit it in. Best of luck, and rememberÖ

    ďObsessed is a the word that lazy people use for dedicated.Ē


    Happy Holidays,

    I have read this diet many times over and i am finally ready to do it once i get my body fat calculated accurately but i need some help with the diet as to the aspect of fitting it to myself.

    How do i change the amount of fats, carbs, proteins, etc. Proteins i know is 1 -2 per pound of lean body mass, carbs in the PWO is twice as much as the proteins. What about the rest???

    Please help as i am very interested in doing this diet comes new year.

    In case it helps my stats are as follows:

    235 lbs
    5'11"
    20% - 30% body fat (waiting to find a place where i can measure it accurately)

    How do i fit this diet for myself, and how do i change it as i go along and lose the fat??? Thanks a million again...

    Very nice post, thank you. I am trying to cut a little bit of my belly fat and bulk a little bit as well. Yea, I think the greatest problem for me is the discipline and planning your meals in advanced. It's so much easier just tagging along with your friends to Burger King when they are all going anyway, then to be the loser who is on a diet. But with gyming I have no problems. It's really just the food intake I need to work on.

    Mike
    Holy Shit! And here I thought that killing myself for 30 minutes each day to obtain a heart rate of 150 - 160 was good for me? Are you saying that I would lose more of my belly with 30 minutes of keeping my heart rate around 130? Does this account for a person who has a normal resting heart rate of 90? Seems to me like there are too many variables.

    Damn, good read. Read through all of it, but I was looking for a conversion of sorts so that I can fit it to myself. I saw a couple ask for some conversions but no one replied, for a conversion process. Still very good read and I will be starting a thread looking for advice as far as what to do and how much to eat a little later. Once again good read though.

    Re-read the first post in the thread. No offense but your diet is awful. Nothing but protein shakes. You have three meals of actual food and one is just cereal.

    So I love the post very helpful. One quick question if I am at 13 percent BF according to Bod Pod and am starting a cycle of TEST 400 a week will this all gel? Can you cut weight and still put the lean muscle on during a cycle?

    IMO - if you're going to cycle, prioritize what you want to do. Either focus on adding weight (muscle), or reducing bodyfat. You'll drive yourself crazy trying to make it perfect and do both together.

    Yup thats my crazyness. If I focus on muscle mass and eat clean will that keep the fat in check. I am a bit nervous as I used to be belly boy and i put that shit on fast.
