I chose to do the high carb day on leg day because it is my most draining session of the week so i thought the added carbs would come in handy, my chest is my weakest bodypart and i was contemplating having my high carb day then. Cardio & abs are going to be done 2 x a week on off days. Nice to see you around again man

Okay so i haven't been updating lately but i'm gonna start this back up again. The plan is to cut for 6 more weeks, moderate carbs on lifting days, low carbs on off days and 1 high carb day a week (will be when i'm training chest as my chest is almost non existant so i would like to make a little progress). I have dropped around 10lb so far and i have done it super slow, but i will now take things into overdrive, the plan is to drop the remaining fat from my chest and be lean enough to see abs, so lets hope this 6 weeks goes well! As i am cutting my strength is stale and lowerback injuries have really done me in so i wont be posting workouts this will be a diet and weightloss log till i'm done cutting. When this is done i will post up all my progress from when i started lifting to now, i hope i am pleasantly surprised with myself.

*I'll post todays diet up later.

glad to see you back my man!!! Im not trying to question what you are doing, but why cut man?? i thought your goal was size? i think its safe to say i have a similar body style to you as i am naturally lean (althought i was very fat when a kid). but as long as i eat clean i can eat all i want w/out getting "fat"...

For the simple reason, I don't store fat well so it was hard to keep the motivation. If i was able to dirty bulk and the fat was distributed evenly then i would have carried on bulking but i seem to store a lot of fat in my chest/face. So going from naturally lean to having a soft chest and a fat round face made it hard for me to take the muscle gains along with the fat gains. I am an extremely self conscious person and in the end the fat gains just got to me i supose. But hey 6 more weeks then i can do a clean perma bulk untill i hit the heavyweights so its not all bad

I know you wern't man and trust me I get where you're coming from, i don't want to be cutting but i think it will alow me to bulk for a lot longer if i start off nice and lean then keep it clean

Diet for today
It was okay but by no means perfect, i need to lower fats a tad and increase carbs, so i will intake more carbs pre workout tommorro. Also i need to add in more meals.

Meal 1 - Oats and whey

PWO shake

Meal 2 - Tuna with mayo on whole grain toast and 1 raw sweet potato

Meal 3 - Grilled skinless chicken breast, salad made with peppers, salad leaves, tomatoes, radishes, cucumber and dressed with 1 tbsp of EVOO and 1 tsp of white wine vinegar

Meal 4 - 2 scoops whey

Cals - 1,920/ 183g C/ 197g P/ 43g F

(My meals are not as far apart as they appear but i woke up late today )

Well it's time to come clean I have fallen off track and progress has been non existent. I have been lifting on and off and keeping an okay diet but haven't done any real training for a good month or so. I've just been stuck in a rut and it's been hard to drag myself out, but I'm back on track now and ready to wrap up my cut (if you can call it that). I simply don't have the resources to bulk at the minute, so i will be doing the Scivation diet solution until I get things together. I started this "cut" at about 165 I believe, I am now down to 150 and will probably finish up at about 140-145. Although I will be pretty much back to where I started weight wise, my body composition should be different. Plus when I was all bulked up I felt fat and unfit, I am now eating much more healthily and feel great. Plus I will be starting a perma bulk when this is all said and done so I am looking forward to things to come.

Now a bit about the diet, it is very simple. 5 meals a day each containing 35g protein, 15g fat. 2 servings of fruit and unlimited veg (especially green). On workout days I have 60g complex carbs PWO, non workout days I have the carbs for breakfast. I have tweaked it a bit, I have less fat PWO and spread it out between the remaining meals.

I won't waste time posting the numbers for my workout as they are nothing special, I'll just be listing my exercises and diet. I'M GLAD TO BE BACK AT ABC!
