    Has anybody sucessfully done this?


    I just read the UD2 diet and there's essentially no way in hell I could stick with it. Here's why:

    :eek3:

    No can do.



    So I'm looking for an alternative that doesn't hinder muscle growth (or maintenance) but allows for fat burning. This can even mean increased cardio or something.

    But 1500 cals a day is tough enough. 1500 cals a day with such a specific c/p/f ratio would be virtually impossible for me.

    Man, I wouldn't try that either. I have a hard time believing that UD2's diet even reaches 1200 calories. It looks like a starvation diet to me.

    You need a caloric surplus for muscle growth. The best you can do is minimize muscle loss.

    I'd be okay minimizing loses for a month or so if I could cut about 5-10lbs.

    On a more helpful note, I've been having a lot of success on my current diet. It's nothing fancy... it's basically just a modification of my previous diet, with an emphasis on calorie control and portion control. In other words, it's easy to follow and it doesn't make me want to /myself (but it is by no means a quick weight-loss solution).

    Total Calories: 1875
    Protein: 175 grams
    Fiber: 100% of DV
    Fat: 31 grams
    Carbs: 220 grams



    Breakfast:
    -Banana
    -Oatmeal (or cereal) with 1% milk and a few tsps of brown sugar
    -Coffee

    AM (or after-workout) Snack
    -Protein Shake (60g protein)

    Lunch
    -Ham sammich with 3 slices of ham, 1 slice of swiss cheese, 2 slices of wheat/nut bread, lettuce, pickle, tomato, spicy mustard
    -Whole Grapefruit
    -Carrots
    -Iced Tea

    PM Snack
    -Can of Tuna
    -A goddamned orange

    Dinner
    -1 whole chicken breast (or substitute 6oz tuna steak, 6oz swordfish, salmon, 6 oz sirloin, etc)
    -Rice, steamed then lightly fried w/ a few tsps of olive oil, garlic and onion
    -Low-calorie sauce for the chicken
    -Broccoli
    -Iced Tea

    See, that's a diet I could stick to.

    And all that's only 1800 cals? Not bad at all.
