    Starting My First Cutting Phase

    Primal Blueprint Expert Certification
    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?

    That's 3600 Cal.
    An percentages are all wrong - 60% of the cals listed is fat.
    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.
