You need A LOT of help - and you’re not going to get what you need on the Internet. You need to read a book. Here’s one: http://www.grapplersnutrition.com/

Anyone who answers your question any differently is doing you a disservice, as you need to learn so much that specific answers to your questions will not be helpful in the long (or short) run.

No, keep your protein high, reduce your carbs until you reach your goal weight.

Now there is some damned good advice! What does “high” protein mean? How does one “reduce” his carbs? Drastically? Over a few weeks or months?

It’s obvious this kid knowns NOTHING about nutrition. So he really has no business asking questions. By answering them, you are putting a band-aid on cancer.

I know you guys love giving advice. But sometimes the best advice you can give is this: Hey, kid, go buy this book. Then sign off the fucking Internet and read it. If you then have specific questions, I’d be happy to answer them.
