Lol, your OP didn’t ask anything though! I was just pointing that out. What kind of feedback are you looking for?

Looks like a cyclical ketogenic diet. What is the question?

What do you both think of this particular diet for someone who has never “cut” before and if any, what changes would you potentially make? Appreciate it

Are you making progress? That’s the most important question and only you know that.

The diet itself looks fine. Maybe a bit high on calories unless you are huge motherfucker and putting up huge weights., or just very active. Remember, just because your cycling carbs and what not does not mean you can magically consume a lot more calories.

Looks too complicated if you’re just starting to cut. Post up some pics.

I think carb cycling would be much simpler. If you really like keto-ish diets i would add more cheat food on your carb day for sanity.

Not really. You know guys, you can eat the same macros everyday and lose fat! Why everyone wants to go overly complicated to start things off is beyond me. In the words of Bane, “THAT COMES LATER!..(when you stall).” I’ve worked with Shelby for awhile now and words like “carb cycling,” “cheat meals,” etc. didn’t even enter the conversation until I was around 10% bodyfat.

PIcs coming

Don’t flame my pics, I had no one to take them for me

How do you insert pics off of a phone

What kind of macro breakdown did you use if you don’t mind me asking.

Pretty sure I started at 250/150/75, but it’s gonna vary person to person. My metabolism is slower than average.

Work out your rough BMR (bodyweight in lbs x 15 i.e. 200 x 15 = 3000). Eat 300 calories less than this. Make sure your’e getting a gram of protein per pound of bodyweight. Fill in the rest with what ever sources of carbs and fats you want to eat. Try and keep these as clean as possible with foods such as potatoes, rice, coconut oil, EVOO etc but dont worry if they occasionally come from less clean sources. If you haven’t lost weight after a month drop your calories again. No need to complicate things any further than this to start with.

That is a good diet. But if this is your first cutting experience, you should use set macros to see how your body responds and keep track of your results. You don’t want to have to go back to this kind of diet everytime you need to lose fat. Start by figuring your bmr, eat that amount of calories with 40/30/30 ratio, see how your body responds, adjust accordingly.

If you need help adjusting when you get to that point, I would be happy to help.
