    My cutting diet, please advise






    any recommendations on my diet. I seem to be very indecisive on my goals and finally decided I'm cutting. A month and a half to lose 12 lbs is what I'm going for. I'm setting my limit to around 2,000 to 2,500 calories a day. Heres what my rules are....
    1-only whole grains and natural sugars, no processed highly glycemic sugars/carbs
    2-120-180 grams of carbs a day ____45-60 grams of fat a day_____ at least 180 grams of protein a day

    Heres what i had yesterday for example:
    breakfast:
    -One packet of organic/natural oatmeal with a half a teaspoon of brown sugar
    -4 half deviled eggs (*they were left over from the night before)
    Morning Snack:
    -2 more deviled egg halfs
    Lunch:
    6 oz of beef fajitas
    1 and a half pieces of whole wheat bread
    Prework out supplement:
    1 scoop of NO shotgun
    Dinner:*normally do better for dinner but I had to take my GF out so not a typical dinner
    2 chicken enchiladas w/ tomatillo sauce
    1 cup cooked of mexican rice
    10 tortilla chips
    evening snack:
    muscle milk 30 mins b4 bed

    This was 2004 calories, 145 grams of protein, 74 grams of fat, 186 grams of carbs

    12 lbs in 6 weeks is a loss of 2lbs/week. You will need to cut 1000 calories/day from your maintenance to reach this goal. I find a pound/week
    (-500 calories/day) is a more reasonable cut.

    Also, raise your protein and fat and decrease the carbs and you will find it much easier to stick with your cut. Good luck

    You may lose 2 lbs for the 1st week or two depending if you've been overeating lately but after that it's hard to lose more than 1lb/week. I've been cutting for about 13 weeks now and have lost about 15 lbs. I actually lost the first couple lbs without even tracking my calories but I leveled off until I got my diet in check. Since then I've lost 1lb/week over those 13 weeks.
