Eat less on Non traing days? RyanMorgans 7 4 yearsjamiee321 (4): Up to personal preference. I personally reduce my carbs and increase my fats so there isn't really a drop in overall energy intake.
Diet help jflynny17 10 4 yearsjamiee321 (4): I don't really think you need to up your intake as you're already in a surplus. It has only been a few weeks, so you aren't going to see a drastic change in fat/muscle gains in such a short amount of time. If anything, I would be looking at adjusting your current training program. Ensure you are lifting with enough intensity and recovery.

Diet advice Read pls jflynny17 6 4 yearsjostrosky (346): I was going by what you intake now. i typically go with 1.15 gram/lb of body weight so its a little more . you can adjust and take off 15-20gram of protein and move it over to your carbs because they are both 4 calories per gram or you can take it from protein and move to fat but fat is 9 calories per gram so only a couple grams of fat
Extra Cardio when Cutting? CaptainKanter 2 4 yearsFiremanSi (42408): Ur goal when dieting is tonne eating as much as U can while doing as little cardio initially as U can. Ur paying to much attention to ur peri nutrition which won't matter too much in the long term for u. Drop back to maintenance calls for a week see how u are. Too much cardio can increase ur chance of loosing muscle while in the deficit. I wouldn't be worry about cardio just yet. What u can do though is increase ur NEAT which won't have too many...

BULK jflynny17 4 4 yearsJsn3004 (3265): I would reduce your fats and put them in the range of 20-28 percent of your calories. If i'm not mistaken you said your calories for bulking are 3,863. 3863* 20 percent=773 773/9=86 grams of fat. 3863* 28 percent= 1082 1082/9=120 grams of fat. Now you can choose to have anywhere from 86-120 grams of fat a day. To figure out your carbs you need to figure out how many calories you are consuming from fat and protein. Lets say you decide to...

My cutting diet (Looking for advices) Jeffr 7 4 yearsSOLARSUPLEX (8314): Yes assuming you don't have any mood issues. Fats are important for hormonal balancing in the body. I would always favor carbs over fats unless it affects you negatively. Try it for a few weeks and report back with overall mood energy levels.
16 year old natty or no? ;) MarcoMacias 25 4 yearsSalokin (877): @Jsn3004 its so sad to see someone so young already going down the easy road and being such a db while doing it.

Macros for cutting VictoriaAlexis1 4 4 yearsWest165 (574): Do a bit of research on leptin and refeeed days. Your body is probably getting used to the drop in calories. 450 calories under isn't as bad as I thought it would be, 1400 calories just seemed a bit low. Then again I'm 60+lbs heavier lol.
Cutting for 5 months with no huge changes tman87 13 4 yearstman87 (4): That's what I'm afraid of. I do want to bulk but I don't want to do it with +10% bf because I don't want to add fat on top of fat. And you could be right about losing the water weight fast. My first week I lost about 4 lbs.

GF's long time cut and impaired metabolism? JaakkoKK 2 4 yearsNorIda (46958): Without going on too much of a rant, slowly increase calories. in this case, slowly introduce carbs.

Please help me Benchify 2 4 yearsJsn3004 (3265): Start bulking. Everyone on this forum will tell you to bulk. You're 150 and still want to lean out? If you keep cutting you're going to look like you don't lift. 2,000 calories is very low and you already mentioned that you're increasing your cardio. And stop program hoping. Stick to one program.

new to macro's..advice sought alibongo78 4 5 yearseknight (58109): Well part of the issue is that your overall kcals are too low. At your current weight, attempting to lose 2 pounds per week is not reasonable, optimal, or likely healthy. I'd revisit the BMR calculator from MuscleandStrength in the FAQ, use moderately active as your activity level, and start with a deficit of only 300-400 kcals. As it is, you're starting so low, you have nowhere to go, and you're not consuming enough carbs to function. In the...

Cutting macros Jenrboyle 17 5 yearsFiremanSi (42408): @Jenrboyle NEAT is non-exercise activity thermogenesis it's burning additional calories through moving more and one of the best ways I've found its tracking steps daily especially if ur job doesn't have you mlvng a lot, desk job and such. U can eat more and lose weight when ur daily expenditure is higher absent of gym and HIIT training !!
Ketosis diet Lesj 18 5 yearsdarklight79 (3088): Blame Taubes. Fortunately, Alan Aragorn smacked him around in a debate at some health summit. I would only consider keto/VLCD/psmf when prepping for a serious physique photoshoot during the last week or last few days. Everything else about keto whether SKD, CKD or TKD is just not conducive to muscle gain. Yet we have formerly overweight people who believe they're gaining muscle after the magic keto diet. No shit. Obviously the sudden drop...
Bulk Macros nevermore81 4 5 yearsFiremanSi (42408): @nevermore81 ur 205 and were eating 110protein... probably lost a bit of muscle there in those 50lbs. Personally i like meat in my diet so i tend to stick to the old reliable of 1g/lb of protein 205g in ur case. U shouldn't need much more than 400g carbs unless ur very active during the day. Ur also gonna want to moderately ramp in eating 3500 from 2100, so add 250-400cals every 4-7days and monitor weight gain.

If you want to get body fat lower you are going to have to track your calories religiously for a while. Getting that knowledge in place is vital. Also i would advise you add in some HIIT intervals a few times a week. Find out your maintenance calories...

Cutting for 3 months after a 4 month bulk? Oslo1234 11 5 yearsHamb0 (2893): I'm not confident that it could all be done in 3 months. For some people, sure, and for others, maybe not. Given that you are in the 150's, its still a significant part of your bodyweight you want to lose yet. Im not saying you'll need a year of cutting to do it, but probably a little more than 3 months, to do i right. What might be an alternative for you, is to cut 10lbs, take a break from the cut, where you'll stay at maintainance (or even...

You don't want to be playing basketball or something with a group of friends and be winded as fuck. Either way cardio can be good if you're going over your calories. If you're bulking on 3,500 calories and you think you went over 1,000 calories, over the next two or three days have 1,000 less calories. Either way it's all about...

Need help clean bulk diet, please critique anteis99 4 6 yearseknight (58109): It looks like a plan. No better or worse than any other plan of similar Kcals and macros. I'd personally blend your PWO protein with your casein and drink them both as a blend. Taking whey and casein separately is sub-optimal. You don't need to eat 6 meals- there's no advantage to it, but if that's your preference then so be it. There's also very little vegetables and fruit. -3X

Macros and calories while cutting Coltonweisbrod 12 6 yearsColtonweisbrod (1): @NaturalBrawn appreciate the input man.

Cheat days Beastmode1607 16 6 yearsEat2Trainn247 (2557): The whole concept of a cheat day/meal/week/whatever just screams unhealthy relationship with food. Food is a source of fuel first and foremost, but certainly a source of pleasure, happiness, fun and is often truly nostalgic and enjoyable. Why embark on a cheat day/meal in place of enjoying all foods you enjoy in moderation? Any food can fit. It is consistency and a true understanding of the role of nutrition that is important to allow that to...
Ideal macro ratio for carb cycling anteis99 3 6 yearsWilliamjacksonxo (1): Also, there are 5 tricks to double your muscle for fast body building: The FIRST muscle to engage in ANY movement must be the muscle you are trying to target.

As mentioned, muscles are weakest at those extremes and that makes it LEAST likely to contract. This is where your ..... keep reading article at...
Football/strength/cutting Robin 3 6 yearsRobin (1): Cool. I do intermittent fasting and eat between 12 and 5 and it's been working like magic.

John Romaniello does a feast fast thing where he does a full cheat day followed by a full fast the next day so u could do that.

Weight loss plateau.. SnackIt 26 6 yearsEat2Trainn247 (2557): @SnackIt your thought process is a logical one; however, our metabolism is NOT static, rather it is dynamic. Simply put, it is ever changing. When we spend long periods of time with a low calorie intake, it adapts to that level; thus making it even harder to continue losing weight. There comes a certain point where our body starts to get really uncomfortable at X%BF and it will fight harder and harder to stay at a natural set point it feels it...

Learn how to reverse diet, get up to a healthy amount of food, get your shit figured out, then continue to diet. I don't see any reason why you need to lose weight while on vacation.

Low carbing, Lost more weight after carbs? wockawocka 16 7 years2MCHPWR (1): Wocka - as mentioned above, your body was in starvation mode and your metabolism slowed down (preservation mode).

The point of the matter is you need to lose overall body fat to lose waist fat. Find your maintenance, cut the cals slowly to a max of 500 deficit, get your macros, train, and sleep. All you need to do.

Clear up a simple question Hewy007 3 8 yearsadam82a (3100): Not quite true, surplus of carbs barely gets converted into fat (also known as de novo lipogenesis) in humans normally, only a few gram maybe. Dietary fat is stored as fat. A surplus of calories which some are carbs will make the body use the carbs for energy and the fat will be stored as fat. Insulin inhibits the lipolysis (the break down of fatty acids) but not the actual beta oxidation (fat burning) process I believe.

For new users asking about macros/iifym fLx_ 5 8 yearsAustralianOak (1504): I am definitely an advocator of IIFYM from a body composition standpoint. But there are (as always) people who will abuse it and use it as an excuse to eat poorly. From a nutrition standpoint getting carbs from sweet potatoes is better then pop tarts obviously. But IIFYM has been a great realisation to debunk alot of myths and I think it has helped alot of people achieve their goals.

TOP 5 BB Supps that DONT WORK ! Elliot Hulse FiremanSi 23 8 yearseknight (58109): I've read enough research on leucine and it's value in MPS and the mTOR pathway to believe that BCAAs have their place way ahead of many other supps (ie, preworkouts). The same can be said for HMB, and for the same reason. The thing that holds me back from saying they're a "must have" for everyone is that most people who strength train get enough/more protein than they need, so they have their bases covered. The glaring exception is...

do anyone? KingLeonidasXIV 2 8 yearswannabemuscular (33219): Carbs are never bad on a bulk unless you're insanely above caloric needs. I think as long as you get like 50-60 gm fats per day you'll be OK.

There is AAAA Reason why people focus on Daily macros, the biggest reason why is because you need the nutrients for the body to start recovering NOW so you will be ready to your next workout and get most of it. If you need 5k calories a day, get every day 4k calories and then on Saturday get 11k...

Net carbs =(-)fiber? Thewasp 4 9 yearseknight (58109): Not entirely true. Insoluble fiber does not provide energy inside the body because we lack the enzymes needed to break it down, thus insoluble contributes 0 kcals per gram. Soluble fiber is partially fermented, at around 2 kcals per gram. OP- In the US, the FDA does not require manufacturers to include insoluble fiber in kcal count on nutrition labels. Accordingly, the general practice within the food industry is not to include insoluble fiber...

Carbohydrates and Calories? Markovich 5 9 yearseknight (58109): A calorie is the unit of measurement for the amount of energy required to raise a gram of water 1 degree C.

A carbohydrate is an organic substance (meaning it contains carbon) made up (usually) of a ratio of CH2O, produced by plants, and the body's primary source of energy, in the form of heat (measured by calories) released from the breaking of the bonds holding the molecules together.

Cutting phase coming up soon, diet advice? JangoJamie 4 9 yearseknight (58109): The reason some people say to eat 500 over for bulking, is because they are working backwards from the idea that a pound of fat is 3500 kcals, which equates to 500 below BMR daily. While the same formula can be used for gaining fat, muscle is a different story, and 300 is sufficient for bulking. -3X

how important are carbs? c3pOMG 3 9 yearsMrMailliw (4494): I'll let you in on a little secret - they are SOOOOOOO important as they are pure fuel for your body!!! More energy = better workouts = more potential muscle gain. I recommend having roughly 50% of your calories coming from carbs on a bulk, can go higher or lower depending on a lot of different stuff. I just raised calories to 3700 as I am ramping to bulk calories and 527g are from carbs, although 41g of fibre knocks that down to 486g of carbs...

I totally agree with EK and MrMailliw, stop making it complicated and just experiment with your daily calorie in take until you get a steady and controlled weight loss.
