16 week diet plan for bulking and cutting Please help
Hello people. I am planning a holiday in May to Las Vegas. I am currently 13 st 8 and at around 20%body fat.
I have trained on and off for around 7 years. mixing it from weights then cardio ect.
I train in Muay thai (thai boxing) but have not trained for the last 8 months due to injury. I have just started back last week, training is an hour long and on 5 nights a week, I usually attend at least 3 times a week, 4 nights where possible.
I have just started lifting weights again also last week. I have noticed tha my strength has massively decreased and also my muscle size has shrunk. I am not surprised as I have done very little training for 8 months due to an injury. My plan now is to train weights in the morning around 10am, then train muay thai at night time 6pm. My goal is drop my body fat and I am aiming for around 12%. But also I want to put on sum muscle as I have lost alto of size.
A friend of mine gave me a diet plan he used before a body building competition that he used earlier this year. It worked for him. The plan looks sum thing like this:
Carb souces: Sweet potato, Brown rice, veg, eggs, wholemeal bread,( white rice and potato only pre or post workout)
Protien souce: Chicken, Turkey, Tuna, Cod, Beef, Protien shake.
Snaks: Nuts, Banana, apple, Greek yoghurt, almonds
16 weeks out: Protien 200-250 per day
Carbs 200-250 per day
13 weeks out: Protien 200-250 per day
Carbs 200 per day split to no more than 4 meals a day
9 weeks out: Protien 200-250 per day
Carbs 250, 150, 170, 250, 150, 170, 250. Split through the week
6 weeks out: Protien 200-250 per day
Carbs 200, 120, 70, 200, 120, 70, 200 Split through the week.
4 weeks out: Protien 200-250 per day
Carbs 150, 100, 50, 150, 100, 50 150 Split through the week.
Now I have never tried a diet like this before, I have made a list of all the food sources to be used above and wrote down how many carbs and protein is in each item so I can make up my amounts throughout the day.
I am not saying I will stick to this religiously, as I will have a cheat meal every now and then (probably a sundry with a roast and a pudding). Just want any info off anyone to see if this diet will be sufficient to improve muscle mass and strength whilst dropping body fat. I will be training weights in the morning and Thai boxing in the evening. I will do at least 4 weight sessions, and 4 thai sessions a week.
If anyone has any info they think would benefit me please let me know or any improvement on the diet plan please share.
