Hi all

Training:
4 day split + 20/30 mins cardio after each session Mon Tues Thurs & Fri

Walk dogs 40mins most days

    Hey mate, looks okay, though whats the whey your having, is the carbs stated from the milk your mixing with it or part of the make up of the whey?
     
    Sorry, should open my eyes, I see from your bedtime meal that it's in the whey. Personaly I would have went for a standard whey if your gona have that much of it in a cut, and gat the small amount of carbs from a different source. You probably ned that level of carbs to fuel your kickboxing i'm assuming.

    I use BBW premium whey - it's the only stuff that doesn't give me rotten guts (i've tried a few)
     
    7 scoops a day - do you reckon that's excessive?

    Considering your stats its def not excessive carbs, and theres nothing wrong with thatnumber of scoops it's just more a case that solid protein source would stave off any hunger better. If the hunger factor isn't a problem then it looks fine. See how you go on it for a few weeks. Let us know how it goes because I am starting a cut soon that wil entail alot of cardio work due to a post i'm going for at work and this kind of a plan would suit me.

    i have tinkered with lower carbs than that but just felt weak in the gym - didn't look forward to the workout and kickboxing used to have me feeling sick and i'd go 'into the tunnel' a lot. I think that's the lowest i can go to before the hunger demons turn me into a savage beast if it's too low i'll up the pre-workout a bit for a bit more energy.
     
    I'll keep ya informed

    ^ cheers mate - i had some time on my hands so thrashed it out - i haven't added the home-made veg soup each day (when the mrs makes the next batch - easy way to get the vegs in) - so i'll have to squeeze the figures a bit, but it's pretty much there

    Looks good to me.
    Do you have rice cakes or oat cakes? I use Nairns cheese oatcakes and they are nice.
    If fat loss slows down you could drop the fuit to reduce your simple carbs.

    I see youve got 25g protein down for a can of tuna but theres more protein in a can, that is just for 100gms
     
    Just looked at your diet, im going to have to add some carbs into my diet . Ive been cutting with no carbs for 10 days now and when i went to lift weights last night my strength was really bad, i couldnt believe how much ive lost in this time.

    hey mate did you calculate maintenance calories just by body weight just because some times this is just guide  changed due to age , sex ,hormones , work , sweating everything !. also lots of scoops of carbs . bread and  rice cakes. i don't see any fruit are veg are pasta are rice u should still aim for some good carbs in your diet. i would swap whole meal bread for the equivalent of carbs in a better form something better then bread.  also if your going to have really low carbs i would still recommend something better then rice cakes post workout meal. TBH i think if u just change some of your shakes just have whey protein and then eat equivalent in something more solid. protein also tbh on a low carb diet if your really serious on keeping muscle might need to be higher 230 lbs man eating 317 grams protein on low carb diet as impossible as it sounds u could need more because id would say to be safe its any where between 2, 3 grams protein per lbs on a cut when protein is even higher then a bulk

    @keyser - my bad - you're right i just read the can and stuck down the 25g - on a no carb diet, have you lost bf on it or just strength?
     
    @davey3ss - i used a calculator that takes into consideration age, height weight, activity level etc.  i don't like eating too many carbs before bed so the maize starch & a couple of rice cakes is enough i think. you're right about the veg tho - i usually have some home made veg soup to get them in but my wife must be on strike cus there ain't none in the house at the moment - the diet was more for a work day - i work for myself refurbing houses and can often keep working with a sandwich on the go - i do eat rice & pasta but for ease just chucked this diet sample up - thanks for the input tho mate all comments appreciated - i'll look at adding more protein too
