    JB44 Guide to Cutting for Dummies (that means you)

    Just kidding about the title haha

    Here is something I wrote up kind of my basics to dieting, not everything is set in stone but if you are not losing weight see how many things on this list you are guilty of.

    Some basics I follow when cutting
    -drink water only, crystal light sugar free stuff is ok, diet soda once in a while is not going to kill you
    -no dairy
    -no alcohol
    -no fast food
    -no eating out
    -no sweets, candy, soda
    -cook everything yourself
    -no processed/pre packaged foods
    -eat foods that come out of the earth, regular/sweet potatoes, oats, veggies, fruits (not in excess)
    -cook with calorie free pam spray
    -whey protein is ok, bcaa's are better (nutraplanet has bulk 1kg for $25)
    -eat lots of LEAN meats - chicken breast, tilapia, lean beef 93%, lean ground turkey 93%, egg whites (yolk or 2 ok)
    -find a way to eat veggies and salads you can actually enjoy and eat a shitload of them to fill up
    -read the labels on everything, be aware of what you are eating before you eat it
    -weight your meals and write down macros/calories to track them
    -weight on a scale can be deceiving, take measurements every week or 2 and go by mirror

    Eca stack is awesome, bronkaid from walgreens with caffine 3 times a day is great but it WILL NOT make up for a shitty diet

    Cardio do the stair climber, it is the most effective 20-30 mins after workout. 30-45 mins on days you just want to do cardio. You should be drenched in sweat, it is extremely difficult and mentally tough to keep going but it burns a shitload of calories. But it WILL NOT make up for a shitty diet

    Stick to the diet at least 90% of the time, if u eat perfect 100% of the time you will burn out. Do not have a cheat DAY.. once a week have a cheat MEAL. Be aware if you are going to have a cheat meal and reduce calories in other meals that day to try to even out calories for the day

    If you drink alcohol be aware it slows down fat metabolism and a higher percentage of the food you eat while drunk will be stored as fat because you body is busy metabolizing the alcohol. Alcohol doesn't make people fat usually its the food they eat while drunk that does. You wanna drink, cut your food calories that day big time.

    Cutting cycle
    50-100mg test prop ed
    50-100mg mast prop ed
    50-100mg tren ace ed (advanced bbers go higher)
    as much hgh as you can afford ed (optional but highly recommended)

    This cycle will help dramatically but again these all WILL NOT make up for a shitty diet


    It takes a lot of will power to make these lifestyle changes but I promise once you do it for a while it will become normal.







    As I just want to add that I'm not one of those people who have been skinny their entire life. If I don't diet and workout I get fat, simple as that. I have been over 20%+ bf and I hated it. I don't have the best genetics to stay lean but I have will power and drive to be consistent with my foods and working out.





    This is what dedication in diet and a nice cutting cycle will turn the average genetic person into this...





    I cannot tell you what it is like to go to the beach or pool and take off your shirt being under 10% with some quality muscle... EVERYONE cannot help but look it is a indescribable feeling



    I will put up a part 2 going into more detail about macros/calories per day and what to aim for based on your body

    Feel free to comment, criticize or correct anything you feel like

    Nice write up! I agree completely. No amount of compounds or supplements can make up for poor eating habits.

    Great post.

    I like it, just a couple things:

    I don't think the stair master is any more effective than other cardio machines if the intensity is equal, I prefer to tell clients to do whatever you like the best because it's more likely that you'll continue to do it.

    Cardio doesn't have to be done at any particular time, I actually prefer cardio first or separate, but that's just preference.

    I agree on the cheat meal vs cheat day, but I'll sometimes have a cheat evening w a good dinner, dessert and maybe a couple drinks. Again, this is just preference, not an absolute.

    I personally don't drink milk, but I see no problem w some lowfat/nonfat milk or yogurt as long as macros are within range.

    I like your practical approach instead of the usual "carbs are the devil" mentality that I see way too much.

    One thing that I try to stress is that there are few absolutes in health, and we can find good health and success in a variety of ways.

    Any preference on when to eat the cheat meal?

    For instance, my cheat meal is usually 16 oz New York strip with a baked sweet potato at my favorite restaurant.
    Should I start my week with it, end my week with it, or does it not matter?

    How is it clear that he has good genetics? Just because he's lean and fit?

    I was just curious how you came to the conclusion it's genetics and not good diet, training, and gear. He even said he used to be fat. You're discrediting all of his hard work w your statement.

    I'm not arguing, it was a simple and legitimate question.

    Nobody has the ability to determine if someone that is lean and fit is that way because of genetics or hard work. When he was fat, why didn't his "good genetics" prevent that.

    There comes a point when you find yourself in arguments w everyone, that you have to start considering that the problem may lie w you and not everyone else.
