Im asking this cause im currently on a short cut (just wanna go from 9 to 6% bf which can hoppefully be done in several weeks). Im affraid that in this process i might be losing muscle coz i already look thin to me.
Hey mate, not really all that on topic I guess, but if you’re already lean and are going to get leaner, however you said that you already look thin. I’m confused as to why you’d want to drop more weight.
My opinion is that it really doesnt make sense if im 200lbs but 15 % bf. Id rather be smaller but more ripped coz all the fat in our bodies does no usefull function.
Also, im on anabolic diet now, and the point on this diet is that you never exceed 10% bf even when you bulk. Why? Coz its harder to lose fat later. Thats why i wanna get to 6% and bulk to 10%. the effect is the same and plus u look ripped all the time.[/quote]
I guess as long as you know why you’re doing it. Noting that you said you’re already 8% going for 6, so you’re already below the 10% goal.
Id say 79kg@179cm isn’t thin. Im pretty close to that too.
Good luck on the anabolic diet, I really liked it, but found even after a few months I couldn’t concentrate properly so gave it in. It got me the leanest I’ve ever been though, whilst maintaining and even gaining strength.
Can u pls tell me more about ur cut? What were ur calories on normal day and what on carb days etc.[/quote]
I wasn’t deliberately ‘cutting’ I was just using the anabolic diet. I was taking on ~3200 calories a day, (I have two photos on my phone listing my diet one day is 3200 another is 3600 325/100/240) which for me is a heap, and I was getting leaner. I would eat as much protein and nuts as I wanted a day and I felt full, which I like. I don’t like the 6 meals a day, as I prefer to feel full, then get hungry before I eat.
Sorry I can’t help much more than that. It wasn’t a perfect example of anabolic diet, but it worked.
Sound like a lot of food hey… What are ur maintenance cals? What is ur weight?
Cheers for that!
