So I’m in the process of trying to shift the excess lbs that have accumulated over the last 10 months. Last cut I did a carb cycling type diet. But it was a bit extreme for a non contest diet and I have no real interest in going down that road again. I was thinking of a simple in vs out diet with a cheat meal a week.
Diet would be 250g protein, 200g carbs and 90-100g fat (2600-2800 cals) on, on days. Lower carbs on off days (2300-2400 cals)
A typical on day would be:
Brekkie: rice flour, eggs and berries, pineapple or kiwi
Snack: oats, peanut butter and protein blend shake
Lunch: chicken thighs and mixed veg.
Pre-workout: chicken, rice and beans
Post workout and during: waxy maize, bcaas and whey after.
Dinner: either fish, red meat or chicken, small amount of carbs and plenty of olive oil.
Pre-bed protein blend shake
Lunch, salmon, butter, spinach, and veg
Snack, steak,veg and some rice
Pre bed same
Would drink EAAs during the days. Cardio will start as two 20 min sessions of sprints a week on off days with 20 mins walking each day (good paced).
Any seasoned guys know if this would be sufficient for losing fat? As I said I’ve only ever done “contest” style diets but think it’s a bit OTT for getting to just 10% BF.
