I am currently trying to cut body fat, and I've seen great results in just the first week without having a craving to cheat. I've stayed away from whey protein, and instead, have been eating "real" food (chicken breasts, turkey breast, and fish- grilled salmon). The only carbs that I really put into my body are complex ones (fruits and veggies). Also have my last meal around 7:30, but if I do have a late night craving, I just eat a peice of fruit. I keep my meals around 4-5 per day, my appetite is not out of control as it used to be with eating more carbs like oatmeal. I still have a ton of energy for workouts, even with the lack of carbs that my body is used to eating. i like this diet, and if you're looking to cut some unecessary fat, you should give it a try. I've also seen some considerable muscle gains as a result (obviously lifting 4-5 times a week, and maybe 1-2 intense cardio routines with some moderate basketball activities). Give it a try if all else fails.
