Just wondering what everyone?s thoughts are on various cutting methods. I want to drop a few pounds and get VERY lean and these are some of the approaches I'm considering:
(1) Training to lose fat (e.g. Poliquin's Lactic Acid Training For Fat Loss or Alessi's Meltdown); OR
(2) Training to retain muscle/strength (e.g. CT's Lifting For Fat Loss or CW's 10 x 3 For Fat Loss).
(A) Low carb - only eating carbs for breakfast and post-workout (e.g. T-Dawg 2.0); OR
(B) No carb (with periodic carb ups) - eating only protein and fat and then having a large carb up every fifth day (e.g. similar to Cosgrove's green faces diet, the Anabolic Solution or Poliquin's recommendations); OR
(C) Carb Cycling i.e. high, moderate and low/no carb days (e.g. similar to the diet outlined by Tampa Terry a while back or the upcoming CT article).
I?m thinking of trying (1) and (B) but concerned it may burn up too much muscle. I know everyone responds differently and ultimately I need to ?try it and see? but I?m interested in what you guys think. Which combination would you recommend?
Any thoughts appreciated.
