Im trying to get back into cutting again... My problem before was I was not sure on what kind of things i can eat.. and what are good carbs.. So i ended up failing.. Im looking for a lot of help on this so i can reach my goal.. i got to 220 last time and it seemed like i couldnt loose any more and my body fat was still high.. I was wondering also if i should bulk first to build a heavy muscle mass then cut. My legs and arms fill out good.. but when i cut it leaves my stumach gross looking.

Yogurt is awesome. Get a "light" yogurt there will still be some sugars like 10g per 100 grams, but its not too bad, a 100 gram serving for me is about 97 cals. I get canned peaches and drain all the sugar syrup off and rinse with water and add that into my yogurt. It has now become one of my favourite snacks. Remember, carbs aren't bad for you don't be scared to eat them.

You can use this cut as an experiment to learn about nutrition, I am on my first ever cut. Before I started I was 154 pounds at about 17-18% BF, after ~4 weeks of making a meal plan and sticking to it with a good exercise routine I am down to 141 pounds @ ~15.5%. I made the decision to cut down because I have never ever been below 17% BF and I wanted to learn more about nutrition. I now see where I went wrong when I was "bulking" - I wasn't eating enough and my macronutrients weren't great.

On the question if you want to bulk or cut its purely up to what you want to do. There are pro's and con's for both, summer is coming up here in Australia, so I decided to cut and I am happy with my results. After summer I am going to try to put lean muscle mass on whilst staying lowish BF (hopefully I can maintain 11-12% at all times).

Below is image of my meal plan, I stay pretty much within my plan, I alternate meals here and there:

This sounds familiar. I cooked around 20 chicken breasts on Friday, but I ended up drinking more shakes over the weekend. Just makes it easier.

that 10 grams is almost 2 teaspoons of sugar-8oz skim milk has 12g which is 2.5 teaspoons. I try to stay away from insulin spikes. Eat a serving of lowfat cottage cheese instead that is 1/2 cup and has 4 grams of sugar with about 12g of protein. If you eat two servings which is 1 cup you gat 8grams of sugar and lots more protein than yogurt.
