Cutting general
How many calories you having a day?
Fucking hate cutting but I hate being fat more

What are some good cutting tips to avoid hunger and binging?

I make protein fluff. I add berries depending on if I want carbs or not. So good and filling

>not even "healthy" snacks help keep me on track

You're probably thinking about it too much. I used to be like that, I could stuff myself silly with low calorie shit and still feel like I'm not satiated at all. I stopped being so neurotic and just said "fuck it, I just won't eat that much" and stopped counting calories. Then cutting was easier, ironically. I count them again now because I plateaued at 135 but now I don't think about it so much anymore and it's completely fine. I'll still eat a piece of buttered baguette or two, or have a little chocolate. IIFYM

>>28338524
Fibrous vegetables have a ridiculously low caloric density. As long as you put little to no oil it's like fucking 600g for 300kcal, it's ridiculous. If you include it on every meal with lean meats you can really eat like a retard and you'll still have a caloric deficit at the end of the day. It's also pretty easy to eat 2 of these meals a day.

Honestly, I don't see a reason for anyone to hate a cut. You're probably doing it wrong/not so right.

Been averaging 2300 over the last 6 weeks, upping it to 2200 off days and 2500 lifting days since I'll be lifting 5x a week this block + sprints 3x per week.

I feel like I started my cut way too low.

I don't count calories. I watch my nutrients and adjust how much I eat based on my daily weigh-ins. It is too easy to miscount calories like obesefags and skellies unless you're going full-autistic about food prep. I'd rather weigh myself once daily than weigh every piece of food and look up its info.

Was doing a diet that only made me eat 1000 calories a day. Lost 17 kilo's already. Went from being a fatass to someone who is slightly overweight.

Still going though 88 kilo's is my perfect weight (i'm quite tall)

I work out a lot too, but it can be depressing to see my weight stay the same at times (because of weight lifting and muscle build). But then i look in the mirror and see my belly gets thinner each week. Also i went from size 38 to size 34 in pants (european sizes?).

After a few weeks you get to know what to expect in your normal weight variations. I have about a ten pound swing through the week being lightest on Wednesday morning.

It isn't so complicated to drop or gain. Y'all make it harder than it needs to be. If you want to lose keep eating less until you drop at the rate you want. Keep an eye on how it's progressing and adjust accordingly.

You're an idiot.

Taking ephedrine to supplement your cut will not "give you a heart attack" unless you're a jackass who takes way more than recommended (3+ at 25 mg) or possibly becomes dependent on it entirely to control your diet for a long period of time (years at a time at a high dose).

I'm on my second cut with EC and it has worked great for curbing my appetite.

cutting at ~1800 kcal a day, atm doing keto, dont care if its broscience or not, it makes it harder to overeat, also IF masterrace
>pic related, todays dinner, half my daily carbs are in this plate
as for advice, fasting helped me control my hunger, i mean a lot, i can easily fast for 48 hours without any trouble
also if you like to stuff your face and the feeling of fullness, IF is for you, less meals in smaller time frame can make it happen even at a caloric deficit
its worth giving a try just for these 2 things, nevermind all the other supposed benfits

I honestly think keto is retarded. If you prefer those keto foods then that's fine but to base a diet around those foods only is retarded.

IF can be good but if you decide to do things normally again you might miss the amount of food you could eat in a short time.

Both are definitely worth a try. Might give keto another go in the future.

What about cutting for work? An easy lunch to bring to work low in calories?

The best I do is sliced roasted chicken on toast with cheese. Roughly 360calories and filling. Or I do canned chicken, mixed with mayo, as long as i have room in my bag for a bowl.

Other suggestions?

i honestly dont think keto is sustainable for longer periods of time, the glycogen depletion hurts any high intensity stuff you might want to do after a few days, its just that with the narrow selection of foods its way harder for me to overeat, might just be me, but it simply restarted my cut, i was stalling hardcore for 3 weeks before i went keto, now im back on track and its looking good going forward, probably gonna stick with it till the end of september, should be done by then

>I know that feel brah

When I was 18-21 I was 6'1 and 145. I had orthodontic surgery to correct a underbite when I was 18, so I couldn't lift or eat solid food for 3 months. Now I'm 25, I'm 6'1 and 172 lbs, 18% BF.

I was a lazy bastard and drank too much beer for a few years and got skinny fat, weighed probably around 180-190.

I started eating better, laid off the beer and became more active (kayaking, surfing, lifting a bit but with a shit routine/shit lifts etc). Also thank got for dat fast metabolism. I started lifting for real recently, and am starting to see results. If you're 6'0+, we're all gonna make it brah.

And to the dude around 150, I'm not saying that drinking loads of beer+being lazy was a good thing, but it got me up to a decent weight to start converting fat into muscle. You should definitely bulk cleaner though.

I've been making some great gains on SL 5x5, but I'm interested in cutting some weight. If I eat at a moderate calorie deficit, like TDEE-500, should I focus on just maintaining my weights for each of the lifts once I stall? If so, would continuing to do 5x5 be good, or would some other routine be necessary?

What routine are you cutting bros doing?

I've been doing 5/3/1 with the triumvirate assistance and my deadlift/squat have been increasing slowly but surely, but my ohp and bench have actually decreased a bit. I think I need to switch to something with a bit higher volume on the upper body days, the really low reps on 5/3/1 doesn't do it.

>why the fuck so low

Because I'm cutting at just over 140. Trying to get that BF as low as I can before I start bulking

>>28346057
This guy here eats less than I do, why not yell at him?
>>
>>28346251
Because my diet is bulletproof ;)

>>28346251
Sounds fucking retarded. You can make gains while cutting as a noob but going that low you can forget it. Do whatever you want. You'll end up looking like shit
>>
>>28346321
Its more or less the Rapid fat loss protocol of Lyle McDonald. I dropped my bf from 16 to 11 while loosing barely lbm. And now i'm going to 8% for sure within the next 4 weeks
>>
>>28346402
Uhh prettt sure the Main take away point from that protocol is intense cardio. Not starving yourself. The cardio lets you eat a shit load more food

EC Stack really curbed my appetite I think. Get used to going to bed hungry and if you can't handle the hunger for a day and know you're close to your calorie cap, "cheat" with something light like a Jello. It doesn't take that long to cut down and the longer you go, the less inclined you feel to eat shitty and the more used to cutting you get.

I'd say on my last cut (3 month period) I made a lot of progress. If everyone was eating pizza and junk food, I was perfectly fine with holding out and eating my healthy meals. If everyone was ordering food, I was alright with just getting a chicken salad with no dressing.

It's both mental and technical. Do it right and don't let up.

>>28339058
Talk to girls and go on dates. 15lbs in 7 weeks. Dates keep you distracted and poor, its working out really well so far.
>>
Gone from a cut to finding a good maintenance before i go into a bulk, currently on 2400 cals, drink lots of coffee(black), or tea, eat oatmeal, chicken, cantaloupe.. just whatever is low calorie and fills you up really.
>>
>>28339628
White boy, you fiiii~ne. Good luck with cutting.
>>
>>28341889
Has codeine in it, pretty much took it most nights when i got hungry to sleep early. Not healthy but yeah.

Just ate a Belgian waffle and big ass chicken salad at IHOP. For breakfast I had 3 eggs wit butter.

Cardio time ^~^

I don't think it's gyno because it's size has reduced as I lost weight. Not completely gone yet though.

I store body fat mainly on my chest,ass, and thighs. I got fat when I was 14 and had already started puberty. Had no breasts till I got fat.

>tfw lost fat on my face and facial aesthetics are much better
>look at old pics and realize I have sunken cheeks

Only jaw picture I have. Too bad the light was too bright, but you can faintly see when they sink in.

Why aren't you stacking with Caffeine? When I'm on it I have so much energy and I don't even think about food. Many days when I've actually forgotten to eat the entire day a few times.
>>
Why do you people cut out carbs? I tried it, yet I was left with NO energy for exercise!

I am not cutting but am a hungry skeleton so all I eat is:

45g shredded wheat with 1% milk

2 eggs and 2 slices of wholemeal seedy bread

Meat or fish with vegetables, occasionally sweet potatoe.

Yum yum, plenty of energy

2400-2500 cal. 6'2 207lb. Basically getting a min of 150g of quality protein, then rest w/e. Pretty much IIFYM.
Down 8 lb in 2 months, not the fastest cut but its easy as fuck and I don't have to go full autist when I go out to eat/drink.

drink lots of water.

expands your diet of rice and hummus anyways, make feel full more

If your daughter died you'd be sad. If you started feeling like your daughter died for no reason, whilst living a good life with friends, gf, and a job, that is true depression. It's random deep sadness that doesn't go away.

Reminder that food can make you feel good, but only progress and self-improvement can provide true, lasting happiness.

Currently cutting with 2500 cals on rest days, 3200 cals on lifting days (4 days a week).

I avoid hunger by eating fewer, bigger meals. I only really get hungry right before a meal so it's all good.

Why do people cut carbs?
>>
Does anyone know how long it takes for you to realize that you're satisfied? Preferably I don't want to eat past the point that I'm no longer hungry, but while eating I still feel hungry, and I want to know how long it takes for your digestive system to register that you don't need to keep eating.
>>
I aim for 1200-1500 calories a day. I try to stay away from anything with carbs but it's hard to do that in general. I drink >1 gallon of water a day.

Today I had a banana for breakfast, 1 EARL'S HOT LINKS (shit is good) topped with mustard on a slice of bread, and I just finished heating some left over mashed potatoes and steak. I'm guessing I have consumed ~900 calories today. There wasn't much potatoes and the steak was probably 1.5 servings worth.

~170lbs 5'7"

>>28351519
When do you eat it?
>>
>>28351388
Because you're body is used to getting its energy from carbs.
>>
>>28351536
Around 1800 - 1900 almost everyday :) dont eat after that, if only berries
>>
>>28351563

Are you saying if I cut carbs my body will gain energy from...?

I cut for a week only but had to stop as it was interfering with my exercise.
>>
>>28351508
Just did a rough estimate with MFP, I'm at ~1100 calories which is fine. I need to get more protein before the night is up but I'd also like to get something more colorful in me too (insert zuzak joke), what's a good veg with protein in it that I could just steam up and munch on before the night is over?
>>
>>28351579
Carbs is what your body uses first in terms of energy. Then I think it's fats and proteins (I get the two mixed up), but essentially what the other anon is saying, is that your body is currently use to getting carbs as it's main type of energy but since you were cutting carbs, your body was adjusting to using fats and proteins as it's main energy source rather than carbs.
>>
Stimulants will suppress your appetite.

Cocaine, meth, amphetamines, etc. work great.

Caffeine and ephedrine also work very well.
>>
>>28351579
The body will convert [that thing which it gets from carbs, google it] from protein at a 40% efficiency rate.
>>
>>28351609

Should I continue to cut carbs?
Is it only worth it if you do weight lifting?

I mostly do cardio until I can get to a gym in about a year...
>>

It's basically keto you nigger

I eat at 65% fat, 30% protein, and 5% carbs when I'm not lifting.

It will take you two-months to be fully fat-adapted. You will also experience other fun effects of keto.
>>
>>28351637
Are you trying to lose weight? Cut carbs, cut calories, cut sugar and anything processed (fast food, soda, boxed food in the freezer aisle - veggies are okay, 90% of sit in restaurant food). Try the best to your ability to focus your diet on protein, fats, and limit your sodium intake. Drink at least 1 gallon of water (4 32 ounce cups).

As I was typing this, >>28351656 came up. People on keto experience that "groggy" feeling you mentioned because carbs is the primary source of glucose which is the preferred type of "gas" for your body. But with a lack of carbs (glucose) your body adapts and reserves glucose for your brain (which is the only type of "gas" it can run on) and it forces your body to produce more glucose from glucagon (the stored form of glucose) which is what makes you feel tired and weak because every other muscle and organ in your body is waiting in line behind your brain for glucose as fuel, forcing your body to get rid of your reserved glucose and begins to burn fat.

tl;dr less carbs leads to burning fat for energy
>>
>>28351656

I do not understand, the only carbs I get in a day are two slices of wholemeal bread and maybe a sweet potato on occasion, the bread is daily.
Is too many carbs?

I dont understand anything, I dont understand the sticky, I do not understand why I am a hungry skeleton!
>>
>>28351724
>Is too many carbs?
Count your macros properly. My daily limit is 20g of carbs, and that is filled up by trace amounts of carbs from eggs and nuts.
>>
>>28351656
Are you fucking retarded? How about you ask the microbiota in your colon how they're appreciating your lack of fiber intake. gl with your cancer, brev
>>
>>28351749

My bread would be 24g of carbs + the carbs from eggs.

This is my pre workout meal
>>
>>28351724
What we call macros is your daily intake of the big three energy suppliers: carbs, fat, and protein. Imagine each create a slice in a pie. You want your carbs to be your lowest, proteins and fats the highest. Two slices of bread is no big deal who cares, but just understand that carbs are in food you don't realize and that is why in western society it takes some effort to get into to feel of how the new diet will be. I use myfitnesspal as a rough estimator for my daily caloric, nutrition, and macro intake.

Reread the sticky, lurk on the bodybuilding.com forum, ask questions and do your research. Are you trying to lose weight or get bigger?

I am 5" 7, I believe, and weight around 130 to 135 lbs, depending on if my stomach has food inside really.

I want to gain muscle but I do not have access to a gym until I move, pretty much in almost a years time, so I have been doing running to improve my fitness.

I am limited with my resources so I squat eith a kettlebell and use a pullup bar, I am trying to build muscle, but not enough that I need to use a proper barbell.

>Cauli > Broc

You think so?
>>
>>28351866
Buy yourself some dumbbells. You can accomplish a lot of exercises and gain mass with just those. Maybe you can invest into one of those sets that allow you to adjust weights and sell them once you have a gym nearby.

As for nutrients go, listen to this
>No you faggot. Eat the standard 40% carbs - 40% protein - 20% fat
>>28351789

Use the myfitnesspal app I told you about and really stick to it. You're my height so try to eat at the very minimum 2000 calories but aim for 2500. That's a lot of chicken, veggies and rice in one day. The first few days and week will be real shitty, literally, and your stomach is going to want to say fuck you no more but if you really want the mass keep eating.
