Cutting diet (w/stats). How's it lookin'? OK to continue?
ANY INPUT ON MY CUTTING DIET (below) APPRECIATED
I'm guessing it's not far off ideal, but it never hurts to share.
First of all...
Starting: 194lb, bf approx 15% (6'2'')
Plan: Lose 2lb/wk for 7weeks, dropping bf back to aprox 8%.
Program/Workout Plan: Here, if you're interested.
Have been: bulking on 3,500-4,500 (progressively) over past 10mo. Up 33lb, mostly meat. Was 161lb 8%bf in Mar'07. Lifting 1yr. Outgrown all clothes. Feel gigantic these days.
In the process: of dropping calories to around 2000-2200 where I plan to stay for remainder of the cut (excl. 2-3 refeeds along the way.
So here's the past few days' food (& this is how I plan to continue, unless someone has something useful to share)...
Note: (PWO) = Post Workout.
Morning sups include: Milk Thistle, Green Tea, Ginseng, 5Htp, Ginkgo Biloba, Anuimal Pak (multivit/min), Animal Flex (Gluco'/Chon'), Fish oil, Flaxseed oil plus 10mg Ephedrine/Synephrine combo (ZenaLean Pro).
Pre weight-training: Animal Pump
Pre cardio: BCAAs. 2nd ephedrine.
After lifting/cardio: 2nd multivit/min (T.Joes iron-free version, not Animal Pak) & fish oil with meal.
Bedtime: Zinc, Magnesium, Calcium, B-Complex plus Valerian Root or Melatonin.
SO... THOUGHTS, ANYONE?
