    I'm 6'1 240 at about 19-20% BF, I want to now cut to 200, I've been bulking for a WHILE. I want to do this quickly as to be cut for a portion of the summer, but without losing a majority of my muscle. Any advice?

    Meh, not really..

    Give the CutDiet a shot. I never followed it to a T for a prolonged period, but even then I had good progress..
    When I followed it by the book I never was hungry or felt a loss of energy, though.

    I wouldn't really advise trying to drop 40lbs "quickly". And if you do attempt that, forget about keeping a majority of the muscle mass you gained.

    What happened? Did you go overboard with the bulk, or just got to where you wanted to be and realized you missed looking trim?

    If you're losing 1.5lb/week and not losing any muscle it's going to take you almost 7 months to lose 40lb.

    Lyle McDonald's UD2.0 is pretty solid, not 40 pounds in a month solid, but solid.

    1- find maintenance then drop by 750-500 cals
    2- do fasted cardio first thing in AM post fat burners (low intensity for 30-45 mins, build to 60 mins then break it up into 2, 30 min sessions, in AM and PM and build them to 50 mins each)
    3- do HIIT on off days 2-3x per week (uphill)
    4- keep the same weightlifting program that got you the muscle (but don't go as heavy when you start to get weaker, you want to avoid injuries. At this point increase the rep range and add more sets all depending on your body/where your at)
    5- do the palumbo diet (don't do HIIT on 0 carb days though, only on carb days)

    cutting from 20% to 12% isnt exactly a cut.

    Yes, but not for more than a few weeks.

    I doubt he'll lose that much water weight unless he's been using creatine and stops.

    If he has been eating a lot of fast food or other salty foods he will.

    You don't get to 20% BF on a clean bulk unless you're a retard. :rofl:

    Then I'd assume he listened to F&N.
    "18% only? Keep bulking."
