    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?

    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.

    They sell these things called La Tortilla Facotory Low Carb Tortillas. They have like 60 calories, 2 or 3 carbs and like 9 grams of fiber. They are pretty good too! You can get them from most GNC's or you can order them online.
    Only time will tell if it was time well spent!

    How about cheese, sauces. It sounds as if you are loooking for something that looks like bread, tastes like bread, but isn't bread - if thats what your asking it does not exist.

    You can't cut the beef if you dont have the steak.

    well I will answer your question...

    what I do is make a Lettuce wrap. You can put the crunchy lettuce on top of your chicken/turkey and a piece or two on the bottom...and its called a lettuce wrap. Works good with Iceberg lettuce.

    a) Is that the meal plan your are currently eating (if so how long have you been following this meal plan?). Or is that the meal plan that you are going to use to set up your diet?

    b) Figure out your caloric setpoint and go form there. Since I don;t know what your diet looked like before you decided to try and lose weight (which was probably only a week or two ago anyway) I would say that you should add some clean/slow burning carbs in and bump the cals up to maintenace or maybe even 100-200cals above maintenance. The clean foods will help your body even out a little, drop a little water and appear leaner overal. Then you can go form there and try and add some real weight, the right way and hopefully minimze fat gain and maybe even drop some body fat depending on how consistent and specific with your diet and trianing your are.

    people have been telling you to forget about dieting at your stage. even though it would appear that you have nothing to cut up ( at your height and weight ) you don't want to do that.
    i have noticed over the years that people who are overly concerned with dieting never ever get bigger. You train for gaining muscle and this type of training needs food. i am not saying to eat like a pig, or get a huge gut.
    you have taken a page from the clarence bass type of thinking on muscle gains. so you get down to your lowest and work back up. this is difficult but so is everything.
    again, it would appear that you are training to get a beach volleyball type of athletic physique. nothing wrong with that. The advice people are giving you has been correct. drop the carbs, you increase protein and fat. However most bodybuilders train for muscular gains and keep your calories sufficient to fuel these gains.
    As for your particular concern, Stacey had the answer for what you wanted- the lettuce wrap thing.
    many here are struggling to gain weight and you wish to drop weight at your height and present weight. so, many ppl here can't relate.
    good luck
