This is from another board I frequent, this is a good post and I think it could help some of you brollies out Cutting diet I wanted to share (tha crumb cake: original Author) This is a Strict Diet for 8 weeks. No CHEAT days, None. 56 days Straight. If you can't deal with it, then this isn't for you. If you can hang, The results will be Phenomenal. This is a Diet for someone who is in Shape, but just needs to lose those LAST few pounds of Stubborn fat. This diet will work ESPECIALLY for those with excess Fat in the lower abs, thighs, lower back area. Diet Guidelines: Avoid All starches, You don't need them if your goal is to get down to 4-7 fuckinging Percent BodyFat. 1. Eat Tons of Green Veggies (Fiber) 2. Eat Lots of Healthy Fats ex. Steak, Flax Oil, E.v. OliveOil, Salmon, Fish Oils, etc. (Energy) 3. Eat TONS of Protein (Preserve Muscles) 4. DRINK 1 1/2 gallons of H20 a day AT LEAST. Avoid ALL fruit drinks, Juices, rice, breads. Eat carbos ONLY after a grueling Glycogen depleting workout. You will have Tons of energy from the Healthy Fats, Good digestion from the Fiber, and great Muscle Hardness and Protection from the Protein. Healthy Fats = Energy Protein = Muscle Hardness, Muscle Protection Fiber = Digestion, and various other health Benefits. Healthy Fats, Lots of Fiber, And TONS of Protein. That's the key. Not only will you DROP bodyfat while maintaing Muscle, but you will ALSO have an abundance of energy and your skin (complexion) will be looking great as well. Example of a Day... 1. 3 servings of Whey/ 1 tablespoon of Flax Oil 2. 8 - 10oz London Broil Steak (Extra Lean)/ 1-2 cups Green Veggies. 3. Grilled Salmon/ 1-2 cups Green Veggies. 4. 3 servings of Whey/ 1 tablespoon of Flax Oil 5. 2 Cans of Tuna/ Chopped Onions/Celery/ 1 tablespoon of Safflower Mayonaise. 6. (Post Workout) MRP or 2 servings of Whey/10oz Orange Juice. 7. 8-10oz Extra Lean Steak/ 2 cups Veggies. Breaks Down to about: Protein 1.5 - 2 grams per lb of Bodyweight Fat .5 - .75grams per lb of Bodyweight Carbs (only post workout) 30-50 grams Fiber in the form of Green Veggies - As much as Possible.

ALWAYSSSS stay Active. Lift 4 times a Week. Alternate Between Heavy Low Rep workouts, and High repetition Moderate Weight Workouts. Cardio, 4-7 days a week, Alernate Between 20 min High Intensity (Jump Ropes, Sprints) and Low intensity for 45min - 1hour (Walking, Light Jogging, Jumping Jacks (lol) ) This DIET is NOT easy by Anymeans, It takes proper planning a day ahead of time. (You have to have the Steaks/ Veggies/ Chicken/ Salmon, Thawed out Before cooking them, Put stuff in Tupper Ware..you Just have to be Prepared.) Be prepared to Go through at LEAST 1lb of lean Steak a day, and 10 servings of Whey Powder a day and TONS of Green Veggies a day. Be prepared to be going grocery shopping at least twice a week.

Good Luck. p.s. NEVER mix Fat and Carbs at the Same meal. Peace, Crumcake.
