I would HIGHLY recommend re-assessing this caloric total initially, and working "down" from a higher amount. Ultimately, you know your body best, but without knowing how truly lean you already are it's hard to make a formal recommendation. I started at 3,000/day at the beginning of my diet and am down to <1600 on most days at this point. Depending on your body type, you might be surprised by how many calories you either can/cannot get away with when dieting. Regardless of this, I don't think starting at 2,000 kcal for someone who's a decent 240 is a good idea. (Not sure if you're actually a decent 240 or not, congrats if so.)
This really doesn't make any sense. Can you possibly please re-type this exactly as the timeline falls so we can see what you're eating/when you're eating it. When cutting dietary timing and precision is 100% of the battle. Any jackass can do cardio all day.
Also, you had better learn to fend off those cravings for sugar at night really fucking fast. And cravings in general. As I mentioned above, I truly don't know you or your body types but I've known very, very few (...if any...) who could pull something off like fruit at night when trying to actually have a successful cut.
Sounds like a lot of weight, a little quickly. Which probably means a few things... you're fattish, and have more weight to lose than you think you do. Or, in more likelihood, that 2,000 calories is just nowhere near close to enough to be consuming within the beginning of the diet.
I'd love to help you out more but there's some pertinent information missing at this point.
Also... no reason for specifics or anything conclusive, but will there be any "helpful cutting supplements" used for this?
Also, any actually good cutting supplements (BCAA, HumaPro, et al) used?
Ever head of Intermittent Fasting? Mountain Dog eating?
