View Full Version : High protein, low carb diet

02-19-2012, 02:22 PM
Hi all,

Looking for a little advice/guidance on high protein, low carb diets. I was doing some research online, and found some diet plans/workout routines that I feel would give me the lean, cut body that I want. I am 5' 8" and weigh 165 pounds (about 15% body fat), but do not really want to bulk up. I would rather get lean and ripped. One diet/ exercise plan I found suggested 4 high protein, low carb meals per day, along with 6 days of high rep, medium weight exercises. What are your thoughts on this type of regimine? Is it an exercise in futility to try and get lean and cut without first bulking up significantly? Your suggestions are very much appreciated!

determine your TDEE first, then search and read as much as you can from the stickies on this forum...

I think going back to doing high rep lighter weight on a crappy diet is just asking for muscle loss
