    what does your daily diet look like? i want to bring my bf% down but still maintain/grow more muscle.

    i dont know current bf% but im 6'1 and weighed in at 200 flat but with lots of water so dry id say about 196 or so.

    ~4 months of almost consistent lifting this is where im at. im satisfied with current strength and what not but i want to lose this gut ive had for years.

    any advice or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    Pick one or the other. I'm pretty sure when cutting you focus on maintaining muscle and losing the fat.

    Otherwise do you know how many calories you eat now and if you are gaining weight every week?

    ive been puttin on lean muscle the last few months but no significant weight. i think i started around 185 so its been about 10 pounds in almost 4 months. my average calorie intake is about 2800-3200. i could probably be using about 3500+ but i simply dont have the time. so id rather cut right now for the remainder of the summer, then bulk again come october/november

    Typical day looks like is....

    6am: 6-8 servings egg beaters, 8oz glass of skim milk
    8am: whey shake
    10am: apple, almonds/peanuts
    12pm: 2 servings grilled chicken (usually 35-40g protein)
    2pm: low carb/cal protein bar (4 carbs/180 cals/20g protein), and some peanuts
    5pm: scoop of PB before the gym
    PWO: whey shake (with dextrose and creatine)
    7pm: dinner usually consists of chicken/steak/ham/etc. with a vegetable of some form, which is usually green beans
    Right before bed: Casein shake

    Cut down 18lbs. with this diet from the end of May to mid July... + workout of course, with cardio out the ass.

    I would post my diet for you (was posted in the bf% thread a few days ago) but Neo said it was shit. So no reason for me to be sharing it with people :( altho it has been showing consistent resutls. Plus I have lost a decent % of strength and some muscle--but not a lot of the latter. So not necessarily what you are looking for.

    I would say if you've added 10 lbs mostly lean in 4 months with little to no weight gain (i'm reading this as fat gain really) then you should stick with your current cal count without upping them. Especially if maintaining some semblence of leanness is important. You're on pace for nearly 30lbs lean muscle in a year.

    If you want to cut down, accept that you are going to have to lose some muscle and strength and then go for it. Figure out your goal, realize their are sacrifices either direction you go (bulk or cut) and then dominate that goal.

    2400 cals
    300p/120 fat/30>trace carbs; 6 meals evenly split

    1x per week 6hr refeed (fat to min. carbs ~4-700; protein ~50); rest of meals same as any other day

    if im stalling i add 30 mins of cardio then hold things the same for 3 weeks the reassess... very easy to write down but a lot harder to be consistant with. Works very well though. Drinking/partying is the hardest part for me, everything else is easy

    Meal 1: 2 scoops whey in 8oz skim milk, ~1.5 tbsp olive oil, 5g fish oil, 8oz orange juice

    Meal 2: 10oz ground turkey (or 2 cans of tuna) + one whole avocado, maybe 1-2oz refried beans

    Meal 3: slice of whole grain toast or banana, 4 egg whites 2 whole eggs


    Meal 4: 1.5 scoops whey, 5g fish oil

    Meal 5: 8-12oz fish or lean meat w/ large salad or mixed vegetables in olive oil


    probably too much food to lose weight but I'm leaning out a little since I've quit drinking and cut out junk food.... after another week or so I'll tone down the cals.
