    Actually that would depend on what the rest of your diet looks like. Post your meal plan and then we can probably help better from there.

    Veggies are good. La Tortilla makes low-carb. tortillas with 3 grams of carbs, minus the fiber.

    I have a question for you then. If you like carbs so much then why do you want to do a low carb diet?

    What are your total daily macros for your meals?

    I heard low carb is the best way to lose fat while preserving your LBM is this right?

    Well that info you heard is wrong. Finding the right diet that works for you is the best method for fat loss and preserving LBM. Now, if you can't even get rid of the thought of not eating bread, I would suggest you find a different diet.

    why are you dieting?? You are 6ft tall and 198lbs., no offense but what are you going to cut up? You are going to wind up being 160lbs and look grossly skinny. Why not lift hard and change your diet to a much healthier way of eating. Stay consistent and your body will lean itself out and you may even begin building some muscle (yeah, everybody loves more muscle!!!)

    Id be around 176 with 8% bodyfat thats my goal and if i started bulking now id have noway to see if i was gaining fat or muscle pounds since i dont always have access to a bodyfat tester.

    My ultimate goal is 205 with 8% bodyfat so i want to cut then bulk up.

    I didn't say to bulk. I just said clean up your diet a little and let your body lean out a bit, just don't start dieting weight away. Going all the way down to 8% (which you hope is 176lbs, if everything workos out right) it will be much harder for you to come back up. If you just lean out a little bit and let your body fat natrually come down and then start to bulk up a little it wil be much easier for you to hit your goal in my opinion. DOn'[t worry about the bf% calipers. Just go by what you see in the mirror. Calipers and the scale are not 100% accurate and if you rely to heavily on them you may end up shooting yourself in the foot in the long run. I just go by what the mirror tells me.
