Cutting diet plan + pics

49 posts in this topic

Posted (edited)

Just starting to get my diet sorted properly. This is what Ive been following for the last 2 weeks.

8:30 - Protein shake with oats

12:00ish - Tuna and light mayo on 2 pieces wholemeal bread

3pm - 4 egg white omelette with ham, 2 pieces of wholemeal toast

5pm - Protein shake

6:15 - Gym

7:30 - Post Workout Shake - Protein, Creatine

8:00 - Grilled chicken breast/tuna, tinned tomatoes, brown rice/pasta

10:00 - tin of tuna or cottage cheese (depends what ive got in)

I am 22 years old, 182lbs (13 stone), 5ft8. Trying to loose a little fat, but also want to put some lean muscle on. I know this isn't really possible? Anyway some pics attached, as I do not know by bodyfat % to tell you.

Any advice would be hugely appreciated.

what creatine are you taking? id go for Creatine Ethyl Ether as you take it just before and after a workout and no loading/water retention as you can get with mono

water retention from the creatine could have a psychological effect on you when your losing weight, like your not losing weight when you are, if you get me? iv been there like...

All looks good! You should lose a lot of fat and water pretty fast! best of luck

Im using MyProteins Creapump before, and just plain mono in my post workout shake.

I get you though, I suppose there is also that, but if I come of the creatine in around 5 weeks, I might drop some more weight then :)

Cheers!

Ive been following this for 2 weeks now and not noticed any visible fat loss yet, but hopefully it will come soon. I think its around 1500 cals.

Yeah deffo

theres studies that show that creatine actually increases metabolism by like 7% or something so you'll actually burn more fat... just the water that can stress you out, it did me!

Make sure you're getting loads of omega 3 oils and vitamin C

you might wanna read my blog post here - top one :)

Of course it's possible, esp at the beginning. I went from bout 20% bf to around 15% and maintained the same body weight, fluctuating by only a couple of kilos, throughout the whole process.

Thick black coffee + fasted cardio in the morning has worked well for me. Muscles are slightly more defined, lost a little luv handle. It took me about 4 weeks of 1 hour/4 mile walking 3 times a week to notice any difference. If you're comparing it with before, during and after pics you'll notice a difference quicker tho.

I know this might sound a bit mad, but what has worked for me in the past is:

On waking drink some water, throw on some jogging bottoms and a t-shirt, make some proper coffee and put some music on moderatley loud. Then dance around the livin room for 30mins. I suggested it firstly to a girl at work who asked for some advice, then had a go myself. It beats going out when the weathers crappy and works just as well as fast paced walking outside.

Get your groove on baby.

Fasted cardio, is cardio done upon waking when the glycogen stores are empty after 8 hours of sleep. Means that bodyfat is being used for energy rather than food.

No bread. No dairy. No carbs after 5pm worked really well for me combined with fasted cardio 5 days a week.

As already said get rid of the bread and the pasta and I would also get rid of the cottage cheese as your looking to cut

Edit: and the tinned tomatoes as they are full of sugar
