The same criteria remain for the “CUT UP” diet. Only much smaller servings.
- Protein: Eat between .7-1.0 Grams/lb. of bodyweight per day. (e.g. if you weigh 200lbs. then consume between 140g-200g of protein)
- Carbohydrates: For energy and metabolism. Good ones are oats, rice, whole wheat bread, noodles, etc… eat between 1-1.5 grams/lb. of bodyweight per day.
- Be sure you are calorie deficient: A calorie intake in the range of 1500-200 calories is needed if you are interested in getting CUT. Calorie deficient means you are putting out more energy than you are taking in. The most effective way is to continue your workouts as planed and add about 30-40 minutes of cardio or aerobic training.
- Eat according to the clock: This is the most important part of the cutting phase as well. Your goal should be to maintain a high metabolism so that you are “burning” fat even when you are resting. If you eat 6-7 small meals throughout the day, you body will become accustomed to that schedule and will store less fat. If you think it is best to starve yourself and just east one big or even two medium sized meals… think again. Your body will become accustomed to that as well and store more fat for when you are not eating.
