    I've been noticing i get mild aches around my body when i first start a cut. Wondering if anyone else does too and if there was an explanation. Im thinking its just from rapid water loss. I feel it in my back, fingers, and knees. But my knees are bad right now. I am taking healthy fats like flax and almonds. Also taking glucosamine, msm, chondroitin.

    Im 30, went from 185.5 to 181 my first week. Skin feels tight though :bigthumb:

    why are you having rapid waterloss? increase your water intake and lube those joints.. cutting should not include dropping vast amounts of water unless the cut you're doing is for a show of some sort or you need to drop weight for a weigh-in.

    I dont know :wtc:

    Its the only reason i can think of for the big weight change and tighter feeling. This last week i haven't lost "weight" but i still have some of the aches. I have a 2gallon rubbermaid water dispensor...i finish 3/4's of it everyday.

    I think the aches may go away in a couple more weeks.

    you're losing weight a little rapid.

    I'd say aim for 1-2 lbs a week. Otherwise, youa re going to see a decrease in strength and muscle.
