    My man flu is gone so it's the first day of my cut today, weighed in at 83.5kg, 20%bf guestimate, I've worked my maintenance out to be around 2550kcals, I'm eating 500kcals below and doing 150-250kcals worth of cardio, plus my regular weight lifting, at this rate I should lose 1.25-1.75lbs a week.
    Training day macros are (give or take a couple gs):
    P-185
    C- 218
    F- 49
    T- 2053

    And I'm hungry already!

        No bf aim at the moment, just wanna shed the xmas pounds + a bit extra, this is my first proper cut using a set diet plan so I'm going to do it for between 4-6 weeks, if I lose 4.5kgs that should bring me down to 14/15%, which isn't to bad for Winter, then I'll lean bulk for another 6-8 weeks, then cut again down to 10% ready for my holiday in Napa in August

        How have you found strength lose when cutting? Did you get it straight back when you ate at above maintenance again?

          Any of you boys tried 'Intermittent fasting"?

          I've been doing it for a while and seen some big gains and stripped fat!
          As long as you stick fairly closely to your macros.

          I can't be dealing with this 6 meals a day situation, work and life gets in the way!

            Yep loss of strength for sure, the odd shaky gym session too where body didnt want to lift :/ will you be resistance training on an empty stomach? Using any thermogens?

              Yea you can get some mad extremes!
              Have you checked out leangains.com?

              As it stands I have a 16/8 split. 16 Hours fasting, 8 Hour eating window.
              From 2PM (So lunch time) until 10PM (Dinner basically)

              Some days if I'm not working i'll train at 1PM fasted and my post-workout meal to break the fast
              When Im working I'll train about 7pm and last meal around half 9.
              10g BCAA before training fasted.

              Feel that when I train fasted I have much more energy and normally stronger.
              Each to their own I guess.

                  My work schedule fits around my 6 meals pretty well, so I don't mind it, but I'm definitely going to try IF throughout June + July before my holiday with fasted cardio before work in the morning.

                  I have my main meal at lunch, nuts at 2.30, then a small banana + shake before the gym at 4:30 (plus jack3d on back day), so I should have plenty of carbs, fats and protein in me to fuel my workout, I always do cardio after weights

                  I got some thermopure from myprotein, I'm going to take 2 before lunch and 2 before my workout.

                        Ligaments themselves are healed but get very tight with walking over 500m so I'm a bit worried about squating on them atm

                        Currently I started a 3500kcal diet yesterday, metabolism needs to kick in as it was difficult but enjoyable lol,

                            Doesn't have to be just for cutting mates, I've made my bet gains from it.

                            All explained in this website, where I leant about it.
