Cutting Diet (will i lose size?)
At the moment I am 6ft 1 and 194lbs. I am approx 15% bf. I have been training for just over 1 year so im moderately experienced i guess. I would like to cut for at least the next 6 weeks so I am 11-12 ish when i bulk early september. I lift 3 days a week monday, wednesday, friday and do cardio 3 days a week with a 25min 5 a side football match each week. This is my cutting diet - are there any problems:
8:30 one scoop whey in water with 5g l-glutamine + 1 multivitamin tablet
8:45 100g museli/oats with 200ml skimmed milk
11:00 10 egg whites + 2 yolks and handful of brazil nuts
1:00 can of tuna and 100g brown rice with veg
3:30 apple + orange + 1 scoop whey in water
4:00 150g chicken with 100g brown rice and veg
6:00 1 wholemeal pitta with one can of tuna, salad and 10ml olive oil
8:30 oily salmon and veg OR 150g chicken with veg and olive oil
10:30 one scoop whey in water and 10ml flaxseed oil + 5g l-glutamine
11:00 100g of cottage cheese
approx 300g protein, 260g carbs, 60-65g fat approx 2600 - 2700 calories
i drink at least 3 litres of water but usually 4....................on cardio days i have the whey in water and l-glutamine 15 mins before and do steady state cardio for 45 mins at 65% of max heart rate. Football is almost HIIT for 25 mins on a friday evening.
I will do this for the next 6 weeks to see if i can lower my body fat by at least 3-4% while keeping almost all the muscle gains i have made.......
any advice would be much appreciated.
