View Full Version : Critique me - Cutting Diet

02-18-2015, 02:08 AM
I've done two cuts in the past but the first was just me fumbling around effectively starving myself and the second ended quickly after I had a knee reconstruction and that sort of ruined my motivation. I feel I've put a good plan together although I think I've gone too low on calories.

This is my current plan
174lbs, 5'10 2000 calories 40P/25C/35F

B'fast: 30P/23C/35F
3 eggs

Before Workout: 24P/3C/2F


Lunch: 52P/42C/26F
150g Chicken
120g Brown Rice
Handful Almonds

Mid Afternoon: 24P/3C/2F

Dinner: 46P/38C/11F
150g Chicken
120g Brown Rice

Before Bed: 24P/3C/2F


I'm not purposely splitting it up into 6 "meals" I just get hungry between meals and I find having a protein shake halfway between meals tides me over.

My workout program is as follows:

Monday: Chest and Shoulders
Tuesday: Back, Biceps and Triceps
Wednesday: Legs
Thursday: Chest and Shoulders
Friday: Back, Biceps and Triceps
Saturday: Legs

I'm just trying out that combination of exercises to change things up and that lets me do 6 days as opposed to what I was doing which was a chest and triceps, back and biceps, shoulders, legs and then the next two days i never liked restarting the program. Probably the OCD in me. Anyway let me know what your thoughts are. Thanks so much.

Off hand the macros look fine, calories may be a bit low- try it and see how it goes, adjust as needed. Protein is higher than needed, nothing wrong with that but you could drop the shake and eat something instead.

Need more fruit/veggies; you will be lacking a lot of micro-nutrients.

Thanks man. I'll throw some fruit and vegetables in as well.
