Hi, thanks for reading! So right now here’s what my bulking diet looks like
Meal 1: Bulking shake (12 oz. whole milk, 1tbl coconut oil, 2tbls EVOO, 1 scoop protein, 1 cup blueberries, 2 tbls. flax, 2 tbl greek yogurt)
Meal 2: banana & 5 oz tuna & mayo, 8 oz. oj
Meal 3: apple & 5 oz. tuna & mayo
Meal 4: 8 oz. chicken
Meal 5: 12 oz. top round steak & a vege (either 8 oz. broccoli, 4 oz. spinach, or 1 cup mixed veggies)
Meal 6: 5 oz. natty PB, 1 oz. walnuts
Throughout day: I drink 1/2 gallon of whole milk spread out through the day.
Totals: 5257 calories, 283F/276Carbs(42Fiber)/426Protein
I’m going to end up around 230 lbs., and somewhere between 14 and 16% bf.
Now I want to cut down to somewhere between 200 and 210 and 6-8% bf. Here’s what I’m thinking for a cutting diet
Meal 1: Cutting shake (12 oz. 1% milk, 1tbl coconut oil, 1tbls EVOO, 1 scoop protein, 1 cup blueberries, 2 tbls. flax, 2 tbl greek yogurt)
Meal 2: 4 oz. chicken breast & apple
Meal 3: 4 oz. chicken breast & banana
Meal 4: 12 oz. top round steak & veggie (again, something like 8 oz. broccoli)
Meal 5: 8 oz. 2% cottage cheese, 1 oz. walnuts
Totals: 2849 cals, 118F/137C(33Fiber)/314P
Now my question to you guys; I’m petrified of over doing a cut and ending up at like 190 lbs, and at like 10% bf, thus ruining all the effort I made on this bulk. So assuming I’m doing a good amount of sprinting/tabatas/complexes for cardio, will what I’ve laid out be enough calories to get me down to / keep me at 200-210 lbs. at 6-8% bf? Or do you think I’ll end up way below that at like 190 or something with this diet I planned out?
