Since july, I decided to give Fierce-5 a try (from what I've read, it gets heavy. I was not feeling any progression with my last program at all), started doing HIIT on days off the gym and dropped ~5 more pounds so far. I'm not accepting any other results than getting at or bellow 180 lb by the end of december. Good luck to all!

    Meal plan is yours average: chicken, lean steaks, eggs, oatmeal, nuts, veggies (raw or steamed), some fruit, some carb, some beans, low fat dairy, no added sugars, nothing deep fried etc etc. Daily intake: ~1900 kcal.
    Deep deficit homie, you'll see results. But as Blue said, you might struggle a bit with your fats and protien borderline low. I would think energy would be an issue as well.

    Any planned refeeds or diet breaks?

    Yes, I'm just above the borderline, really controlled. And yes, I do feel tired at the end of the day (7PM on), but not early in the morning, which is when I work out (7AM - breakfast 1h30 earlier... eggs, bananas, oatmeal, and I'm good to go). Since it's a change for good, it's ok. In the long run, I don't wanna miss my carbs for cravings. So I'm keeping my rice over bacon, lol. It has to suit yourself.

    Yup. Just did that in june when I reached a plateau. 1 week of "not-worrying" - NOT self-indulgence. Just took it easy. I'm planning to do that every 2 months, which is when I'm going to my nutritionist to keep tweaking my meal plan according to my current level of body composition. "Nice and easy"... but not at the gym

    Thanks, guys!

    In that case more power to you. My normal cutting intake is around 2050 calories and I usually just barely hit my protein/fat goals, but I think I could manage 1900 if I wanted to crank the misery level up significantly.

    I'm planning to do that every 2 months
    I've experimented around a bit and nine weeks is about my optimal cutting length, much longer and I really start to experience negative secondary effects. I can can gut it out and have in the past, but it turned out to not be worth it.

    Thanks, guys!
    Keep at it, the hard part is getting started and you already did that.

    Got my deficit down to 2400. That's as low as I have ever gone on a daily basis. So far so good, feeling pretty spent at night but already seeing some really positive trends.

    Going with the fast and furious route this time. Come November I would like to be lean as could be. Refeeds will be planned out by the end of this month. Thinking one very heavy carb day every 3 weeks. We will see.

    Current weight 192.

    Down 3.09lbs this cycle. Got motivated and took a hard look at my remaining diet weak spots, not that there are many at this point, but I think I found a way to drop 700 calories a week without too much misery. Experimenting with that this week. Big camping trip coming up next weekend though, won't be any cutting going on there.

    That's a good amount of calories to diet with. I run 2000-2300 daily when strict counting/measuring. Funny, there are days I plan on 1900 to account for a night out w/the family ect and I feel like I'm starving. Amazing what a few hundred cals can do.

    Got down to 202.6 this week but had a small get together at my house where there was some drinks and lots of food :embarrassed: . Probably ended the day at 6k cals soooo today back on track and will eat about 1k for the day to flush the system. Lucky me I have heavy deadlifts on schedule Hopefully the cals help because I've been feeling beat up all week and that's usually a precursor to injury for me.

    Good luck this week dieters!

    lol I ate terribly pretty much Thursday throigh today....I'll call it a metabolic kick start or something. Back to the grind tomorrow. I am making zero progress, but still healing up my shoulder and training is just kind of blah. I keep thinking I will buckle down and put in some serious effort on the diet for a few months, then after a week or two I'm like meh, almost sweatshirt weather .
    A bigger back will make a bigger waist look a little smaller....

    Are we going to keep this thread going next year or start another one?

    But going back to your bulk/cut timing, it sort of reminds me of a guy in my gym. I switched to this gym in January of this year. Soon after that, I saw this freak of nature. Looks a lot like Ulysses Jr...long dreads and all. Good muscle size and separation, but it tapers into an impossibly small waist. The only way I can describe it is the waist size of a 12 year old girl. Its freakish, to say the least. Months go by, and I see this guys muscle separation fade away. Eventually, I figured out he went on a bulk. When someone bulks during the summer, you know they are lifting for a higher purpose than looking good on the beach. LOL
    ALL I ASK IS ALL YOU GOT FOR AS LONG AS IT TAKES
