Starting My First Cutting Phase
Using this thread as a guide, I'm starting my first cut.
- Sex: Male
- Age: 25
- Height: 190cms
- Weight: 106kg
- BF: 20%
I've calculated my cutting cals at 2400, so I'm aiming for these macros:
- Protein: 300g (50% of cals)
- Fat: 240g (40% of cals)
- Carbs: 60g (10% of cals)
I do heavy compound lifts 1-2 times/week and play ultimate frisbee for 1-2 hours/week. I also get in 3-5 hours of dog walking each week.
Typical day will look like this:
- Breakfast: Coconut milk smoothie with eggs, berries and protein powder
- Snack: Tinned tuna + nuts
- Lunch: Chicken, bacon, egg salad
- Dinner: Steak + veggies
- Supper: Cottage cheese
Target is 1lb of fat loss/week (seems reasonable) to drop BF to at least 15% (should take around 90 days) without sacrificing muscle mass or strength (much).
I'm expecting this to need some refining as I've never cut before, but how does it sound as a starting point?

Reason: Modified ratios
That's 3600 Cal.

Fat has 9 cal per gram weight
Carbs/Protien has 4 cal per gram weight.
Note also : Protein grams is not meat grams.
300g if protein is a little excessive.
