    Talking Nutrition: What to eat when shredding/cutting...

    Hey guys,

    When your preparing for summer what are some good foods that you eat when preparing to cut and shred up for summer?

    I.e. things that are low in fat, and low/moderate carbs, high protein.

    I know the essentials:

    * Almonds, cashew nuts
    * smoked trout
    * can make your carb meal a salmon sandwitch with avocado, tomato, onion, lettuce etc
    * tuna (good quality, no carbs, low fat)
    * muscles in a can
    *chicken legs/wings
    * steak
    * ham
    * scrambled eggs with carrot, onion, tomato, mushrooms (1-2 whole eggs, 2-3 egg whites)
    * a serving of vegetables
    * Lots of WATER
    * Oats (good quality, low fat, low sugar)
    *Pumpkin, potato servings with dinner

    You guys got any other idea's?

    Cheers

    For me its not what I eat but how much I eat, either 500 cals over or 500 cals under maintenance depending on my current goal.

    As long as I hit my daily macros then its all good.

    Yep macro's is key for cutting, monitoring fat, carb, protein levels, but what are some good foods to incorporate into your diet when reducing your body fat and maintaining muscle?

    I eat the same thing whether I'm trying to lose, maintain or gain weight its just the portion sizes that change. I track everything I eat so I know exactly where I am at the end of the day in terms of macros. If I need a bit more fat then I'll add some walnut oil to whatever I'm eating, if I need more protien then I'll have some full fat greek yoghurt or chicken or cottage cheese etc.....

    Here you go:

    Macro nutrition is looking at you caloric intake from the perspective of protein, carbohydrates and fats. Macro numbers like 50/30/20 means that you get 50% of calories from protein, 30% from carbohydrates and 20% from fat. Different goals require different macro numbers, as well as different people have different macros to fulfill their fitness needs.

    I believe what Schlangemann meant by his question was that whether you are eating above/at/below maintenance your protein AND fat macros (in grams not % of total calories) should be the same. It's the carbs that you should increase/decrease depending on your goal. Ensuring your macros are met while still remaining full is the toughest to balance.

    The same foods I eat any other time of the year.

    Why would food choices change based on goals?
    No brain, no gain.

    You can't out-train bad nutrition.

    "The fitness and nutrition world is a breeding ground for obsessive-compulsive behavior. The irony is that many of the things people worry about have no impact on results either way, and therefore aren't worth an ounce of concern."--Alan Aragon
