I have pretty much never cut in my life because mainly the length of time it takes and how meticulous you have to be with calories and food in general.
So I came up with a diet that I would like anyones opinion on it.
I started at 6 2 205lb around 14% BF and a 33 inch waist.
After 2 weeks I am down to 198lb 31 inch wasit, and have gotten visible leaner all over but mainly on my lower back and midsection.
The diet goes as follows:
Day 1: 210 Protein 270 Carbs 110g Fat = 2910 Calories (In around maintenance)
Day 2: 210 Protein 0 Carbs Under 10g Fat = 930 Calories
The only times I get hungry are between 6pm and bed time on a low calorie day. I have tons of energy on both low cal and high cal days.
I let the workouts fall where they may, so not all my lifting days fall on high calorie days.
I never feel bloated or "fatter" the morning after the high day, usually thats when I feel like I dropped some fat.
I got the idea from Lyle Mcdonald's "Rapid Fat Loss Handbook", but instead of doing 2 weeks straight of 930 calories a day I divide them to keep me sane and my metabolism in check.
Is this diet safe, or will it screw up my insulin sensitivity, or metabolism in anyway ?
I haven't lost any muscle, my strength and intensity is still there while working out
My goal is to get down to 8% BF
The main idea is instead of feeling like your on a diet all week I cut it down to just 6 hours a day, 6pm - 12am on my low day where I feel starving.
