    Opinions on current cutting diet? Change?

    Hello,
    I am currently carb cycling and it doesn't seem to working as affectively for me as i am have heard. I am 175 pounds and around i would guess 16-18% bodyfat. I want to cut down before I go on a bulk and because i have never even been slimmer than this. I was hoping to get some other opinions on this.

    I wonder if another type of cutting diet would work better for me. Maybe something like this with some slight adjustments since i am not 200 lbs, Outline of Dave Palumbo's Diet For Cutting - Bodybuilding.com Forums

    Anyways, I lift Mon, Tues, Thurs, and Friday. I do HIIT on Mon, Wed, and Sat. On days when I don't do HIIT I usually take an hour long walk or use the 60% heart rate feature on the exercise bike.

    My current plan is:
    No carb: Tues, Thurs, Sun

    Meal 1: 2 scoops of whey, 5g fish oil, mult vitamin

    Meal 2: 5 eggs whites, 1 reg egg, 1/2 cup almonds

    Meal 3: chicken breast or can of tuna, broccoli, 5g fish oil

    Meal 4: 2 scoops whey, 5g fish oil

    Meal 5: Chicken breast or tuna, broccoli, salad with balsamic vinegar and olive oil

    Meal 6: tuna with 1/2 cup cottage cheese or 1.5 cups cottage cheese


    Low Carb: Wed and Sat

    Meal 1: 2 scoops whey with berries, 1 cup cooked brown rice, 5g fish oil

    Meal 2: tuna, 1 cup cooked brown rice, apple

    Meal 3: Chicken Breast, Broccoli, 5g fish oil

    Meal 4: 2 Scoops whey

    Meal 5: Chicken Breast or tuna, 1 cup cooked brown rice, apple, 5 g fish oil

    Meal 6: tuna with 1/2 cup cottage cheese or 1.5 cups cottage cheese, fish oil


    High Carb: Friday and Monday

    Meal 1: 2 scoops whey, berries, rice or oats, 5g fish oil

    Meal 2: Chicken breast or tuna, rice or oats, apple

    Meal 3: Chicken breast or tuna, broccoli, 5g fish oil

    Meal 4: 2 scoops whey, berries, rice or oats

    Meal 5: Chicken breast or tuna, rice or oats, apple, 5g fish oil

    Meal 6: tuna with 1/2 cup cottage cheese or 1.5 cups cottage cheese, fish oil

    Could I trouble you to post up the macros for these days? (By macros, I mean grams of protein, carb and fat, and total calories. I don't care what the percentages are.)

    Also your maintenance calories, and I'd be interested to see how you lift, but the diet first, please.

    I don't actually care what a calculator said your maintenance is.

    I want to know how many calories YOU PERSONALLY actually consume to neither gain nor lose weight.

    FitDay - Free Weight Loss and Diet Journal enter your food, take an average in a few days. That is YOUR maintenance. To cut, drop calories by about 20%. Don't change your training at first; over time, drop volume, lift heavy, add in a little HIIT...
