T Nation

Diet Feedback

Well after 6 months of T-Style training I have finally come around to detailing a diet. The diet that I made is designed to help lean me out this summer with the hopes of continuing LBM and strenght gains.

Currently I am 5’8" 185 at about 13-16% BF. Short term I want to reduce my BF to <10% while retaining my LBM. After I lean out I will start a bulk cycle ala massive eating.

Here is the cutting diet; today is my third day and everything is going great! Prior to doing this I was massively under-eating at about 1500 kcal/day.

Let me know what I should add or delete from this please!

So, apparently this is a pretty sound nutritional plan? Well I will stick to this for about 4 weeks before making any adjustments…
