Stop overthinking it. Just figure out your caloric maintenance level, and eat 500 less than that every day. Eat anything you want. Just get enough protein in each day, and try to eat reasonably "healthy" foods so that you don't have a heart attack at some point in February.

I've been cutting since October and I've lost 13 pounds eating chips, candy, McDonald's, you name it. Just eat whatever you want, and stay under maintenance. That's it.

Pre/post workout dial it in more.

i agree with finding your maintenence and dropping 500 cals, but everything i have read in books and mags is to lose the carbs at dinner to lean out, and eat at least i gr. of protein per lb of bodyweight, other than that i think your on the right track. good luck

You're right. No one wants to do the work it takes to create a sound meal plan. OP, get a fitday account and know what you are eating.

Looks good, I ate similar and lost 50 pounds. Just make sure you are burning calories as well so you can create the "calorie defecit"!

i'm not creating a meal plan for this guy. his diet sucks. i'll give him what his macros should be if he should supply enough information for me to do so.

and yes it helps by saying he shouldn't listen to cappy advice.

eat whatever you want...that is absurd. this whole calories in vs calories out is simple enough to understand, but its not as simple as people are making it out to be.

i honestly don't know why OP is even cutting. if his stats are true...6'5" and 195 lbs...then maybe he should chose a different route. i have no idea. i haven't seen this guy but he's eating like a small woman according to his current diet.
