Whats your go to snack while cutting?
>>70321678>snacksFuck off. Eat your 3 meals a day and make them count, fatso.
raw monkey brain
>>70321685>3 meals a dayI can hear you slobbering down the hall, tubby
>>70321685i like to enjoy life
Cutting is the easiest shit everJust literally don’t eat, that’s all you need to do. Your 12 week cut turns into two weeks, if that. Don’t even give me a you talking about muscle loss when you don’t eat, you fags clearly have no idea what you’re talking about and are spouting the same shit big supplements tell you to
>>70321833Shoo gains goblin
>>70321678How do I get a tongue like that??
>>70321833You need to eat protein. I had myself measured at my dietician every three weeks. 1000 cal with 70g protein (my (((dietician's))) recommendation) led to me losing 6 lbs of which 1 lbs of muscle. 1000 cal with 120g protein led to me losing 6 lbs while gaining 1 lb of muscle.
>>70321678Watermelon. 330kcals per kg. Tastes good (especially when cold). Also refreshing. Filling as well.
>>70321678Fuck snacks, cutting and want a something small to eat in between meals?Can of tuna100cal for 23g proteinpiss
>>70321881>1000 calProblem right there. Not eating and eating below maintenance are two entirely different concepts
>>70321906>>70321833>>70321881Not that guy but this is me eating 1000kcals per day without lifting for 25 days. Just cardio (boxing). I think the muscle loss shit really is blown out of proportion by broscientists or perhaps is only really a thing when you're at really low bf%. Think about it. Why would your body burn valuable, useful muscle over the literal 10kg+ storage of fat that is designed to be used as energy stores for the body?
>>70321922>>70321906You would’ve got lean after 2-3 week fast. And yes the concept you stated is exactly how the human body works, it’s incredibly efficient. The role of fat is to get the body through periods of famine.You’re only going to run into trouble when you have no fat on you. Any strength you do lose is instantly gained back once you start eating because your growth hormone is sky high
>>70321884Makes you pee every five second tho
>>70321678i will probably never get fat enough to warrant cutting in my life but if i did, cruciferous vegetables+lean meat is literally all id eat. eat a big fat slab of grilled salmon with some cabbage/spinach/broccoli/cauliflower salad, little bit of balsamic vinaigrette handful of sunflower seeds. would be full for hours
>>70322222Based digitsMy issue with fishes is that it never feels me up. I always end up staying hungry and cheat with slop afterwards
>>70322254yeah leptin is released when the stomach is distended, hence eating a bunch of insoluble fiber with the fish or lean meat
>>70322300leptin is the hormone that causes hunger(ghrelin) to go away, and is released when you stomach stretches out. so the ideal thing to do is eat stuff with almost no calories like spinach, cauliflower, carrots other heavy dense vegetables etc until your stomach is literally streched out. itll remove the hunger but iirc fats are what cause satiety(aka feeling satisfied after eating) which is different than just *not being hungry*. hence red fish like tuna salmon etc are great, they have healthy fats and oils in em
>>70322344does every retard posting here knows nothing about the shit he talks about? Vegetables don't remain in the stomach for long, they immediately pass to the large intestine, you fucking retard. You feel full when the microbiota in your gut have sufficient food, not when the stomach is stretched out, holy mother of pseudoscience.
>>70322344ghrelin stop getting released when the stomach is stretched out. leptin is released from fat tissues as far as i remember.
>>70322463>You feel full when the microbiota in your gutstopped reading right there lmao the gut biome serves to break down fiber you mong, get out of here with YOUR uneducated bullshit. and you literally didnt refute my claim with an answer to satiety and reduction of hunger, you just spewed verbal diarrhea
>>70321678>snackingAmericanbro ...But apples, melon (many different kinds), carrots, and (slightly more caloric, as an ice cream replacement) frozen banana.
>>70322500> gut biome serves to break down fiberyea what are plants made of, retard
>>70321678what an unsettling image
>>70321678Sugar free edrinkPeople who have to eat something all the time are pathetic
>>70321678>go to snack>snack>cuttingyou seem to be contradicting yourself, fat fuck. You're not cutting, you're fasting. Check your insulin levels.
>>70321799I can't imagine how smol n weak you are if you're talking shit about 3 mealsLet me guess, you do OMAD and wonder why you can't make progress fkn lmaooo
>>70322513what did i literally say to eat? this is like talking to a monkey
>>70322535Not the anon you're replying to, but you dont need 3+ meals a day to get bigger, unless you mean bigger sideways.
>>70322555>so the ideal thing to do is eat stuff with almost no calories like spinach, cauliflower, carrots other heavy dense vegetables etc until your stomach is literally streched out>vegetables, leafies, cruciferous>until stomach is literally stretched out>like talking to a monkeyexactly
>>70321922I need to drop weight for my first fight coming up, thinking about doing a PSMF for a couple of weeks then just maintaining for the remainder of time up until. What are your macros? A PSMF is pretty much just protein and veggies, but Id imagine my training will suffer, was thinking about just sipping a Gatorade throughout to offset it
1ts of sugar
>>70322600I did OMAD: ate the following per day>2 cups of coffee, with 1 sugar/milk>250g sweet potato>250g mixed veg (broccoli, carrots, peas, cauliflower)>200g chicken breast fried in lemon juice/cajun spice>half a waltermelon (500g)>unlimited diet drinksMy macros were:72g protein87g (30g sugar) carbs25g fatIf you're cutting weight for a fight, obviously you'd want to cut the drinks towards the weigh in for a water cut. How much do you have to lose?
>>70322721>>70322600Also as a side-note, i found my energy levels after a few days were completely normal. I still boxed/sparred normally and didnt really feel like i was any more lethargic/slower. I did try and make sure i had eaten by the time i did my evening boxing sessions though. In the morning sessions i'd just have coffee and still feel fine.
>>70321678>fat burningwhy not fat freezing or fat slinging or fat stomping?
>>70322222Bulking to cut? Retard. No wonder you're unhealthy.
>>70321865Get into ass eating, preferably male asses for sped up results
>>70321678God, I hate this channel's thumbnails
>>70321832>i like to enjoy life
>>70321678You really shouldn't be snacking if you're cutting anon. What's the point? Empty useless calories. . .
>>70321922Funny way of doing progress pics anon well done.
>>70322721Thanks Anon, to be honest my macros look pretty similar when I factor in the pre training Gatorade, bar I'm eating more protein and few hundred extra calories as a result of.
>>70321678I don't snack I just eat loads of meat and eggs and I don't get hungry for ages. Snacking on modern foods isn't really sustainable if you want to stay ripped year round.
>>70322721Missed that last part, I don't need to lose much. 4kg, can't say I'm worried about reducing fluid intake in the days leading up to the weigh in. I'll just fast for 24 hours.I've done similar stuff when I used to oly lift, but energy requirements between doing something for one rep Vs boxing are vastly different though.
>>70323270This.Just don't snack.Simple.
>snackAre you 10?
>>70321678A clear gravity shill. Go away
>>70322600>>70322721>>70322739ight niggas, here me out, first off, 225 from 475, I should weigh 175 at 12% and 195 at 18%I got loose skin surgery soon, I can probably stand to lose 20 more. I've been binging and purging lately, cause I've been trying to do PSMF and binging like a dumbass. I can maintain, and get the surgery at ~25-50 pounds higher than my true goal weightI can reschedule the surgery for next year, lose weight properly (aka not psmf binging and hating myself), and then be at like 10 pounds from my ultimate goal weight (like 195-205 with loose skin)But here's the 2 caveats to NOT rescheduling: 1. I'm gonna be down anyways, losing most-all my mass, and therefor I'd be at oh 210 after, then when I go to cut, I'd be recomping and the cut would be easy as shit. (but what if I have more loose skin, etc.) 2. I get it done quicker, leaving all the dogshit to this summer, I have to get it during a summer month (college fag), and it'll just be easier to do it now.But I also get to save more, not go into debt, and be at a lower setpoint. Also Also, I was 205 once, I felt like total compelte shit, so am I really that far off my goal weight anyways? probably only 20 pounds, so why not just, idk..... just thinking.
>>70323626To be honest matey, these are questions you should be chatting to your surgeon about.You could try eating at maintenance for two weeks, then restart the PSMF but if it just re-triggers binging and purging maybe very low calorie diets aren't for you.
>>70323741Yeah idk it's weird, I don't get hungry but then I eat something and just go fucking crazy, like 8k calories.I have no issue maintaining though tbqh... It's just the "cut" (crash diet)I'll have a chat with him Tomorrow I guess.
>>70323364what meat and how much meat and eggs do you eat?
>>70321678When cutting, it's important to choose snacks that are low in calories, high in protein and fiber to help keep you full and satisfied. Here are some go-to snacks that you might consider:Hard-boiled eggs - High in protein and healthy fats, hard-boiled eggs are a great snack for cutting.Greek yogurt - High in protein and low in calories, Greek yogurt can be a great snack when topped with fresh fruit or a drizzle of honey.Fresh fruits - Fresh fruits such as berries, apples, and pears are a great source of fiber and low in calories.Raw veggies - Raw veggies like carrot sticks, cucumber slices, and bell pepper strips are low in calories and high in fiber.Cottage cheese - High in protein and low in calories, cottage cheese is a great snack that can be paired with fresh fruit or veggies.Remember to keep track of your portion sizes and stay within your daily calorie and macronutrient goals when snacking.
>>70324216Adding to this: you can make a dip with greek yogurt and spices, or use hummus as a dip too. The flavours of hummus they have at stores now is amazing. I find when I have a little bit of dip I can eat a lot more veggies.
>>70321884>60g sugar in a 1kg melonStay fat chubby
>>70321683yes it has like 120 cal a bag, if you don't add toppings.
>>70321678>snacks>cutting>>70321832>Life has no meaning if I'm not constantly shoveling food down my fat maw
>>70324643>fruit has sugar in itWoah bro you're really on to something there
>>70321678OrangesOranges are scientifically the most filling food behind boiled potatoes and ling fishSince I'm not a gook I never even saw a ling fishThe caloric profile of brotatoes is higher and they're annoying to cookhttp://ernaehrungsdenkwerkstatt.de/fileadmin/user_upload/EDWText/TextElemente/Ernaehrungswissenschaft/Naehrstoffe/Saettigung_Lebensmittel_Satiety_Index.pdf
>>70321678I like those Outshine bars and Halo Top ice creams. Really hit the dopamine receptors while still being low enough in calories that I can stay in deficit. Quest protein chips are really good too if you're craving chips but don't want empty calories that are unfilling. But I try not to snack too much while cutting because it can be a slippery slope.
>>70324216>>70324511Good info anon. Only thing is I'd stay away from those packaged flavoured hummous tubs, easy enough to make your own with cans of chick peas, or buy tinned hummous (mostly just mashed chick pea), to which you add your own amounts of tahini, lime juice, garlic, etc.Also for the dairy, fromage frais 0% fat is nice too but that might be the same thing as greek yoghurt.
>>70324652What brand? Every bagged popcorn i've seen in my grocery store is over 250-300 cals, even for the light stuff. Are you sure you're tracking it correctly? The serving size on the bag is usually 1/3 of the bag, at least in Canada.
Beef Jerky. Biltong. Boobs. Knowledge.
>>70321922It depends on what your body needs, if it really needs aminoacids it will eat the muscles
>>70325343what does your body use amino acids for other than building muscle?
>>70324643>60g sugar per kg>240kcal per kgThat's fucking god tier what are you on about
>>70325363A lot of other things, from organ maintenance to producing essential compounds like some neurotransmitters. It can eat muscles to obtain vitamins and other stuff I do not remember too
>>70325370That's mostly water, it wont satiate you for long
>>70325406Surely you can get said amino acids by simply eating more than like 10g of protein per day no? Why would your body cannibalize muscle when it can just get them from food?
>>70325681The bare minimum is 1g of proteins for kg of your own weight, from all sources.If you train 1,5g-2g. The caloric intake from these proteins (and the other bare minimum macros you need) will still be lower than your basic metabolic needs anyway
>>70325303Don't buy bagged popcorn. Just cook the kernels in a pot on the stove with a little bit of oil, or use an air popper.
>>703257721g per 1kg of lean body mass retard, not body weight.
>>70325854No, body weight. It's a good approximation assuming you are not a fat retard, you stupid cunt.
>>70321685This. Fatties should OMAD, snacks are for serious lifters trying to optimise hypertrophy with regular protein
Fuck the snacks, IF and then make your meals count. Even something low as fuck for an active™ individual like 1500kcal is still a ton of food if you’re not eating slop, I don’t fucking understand how some of you bitches feel hungry. My buddies accused me of roiding last summer on my cut but I didn’t miss a single lifting session and marched and ran like a fucking Roman legionary. I’m doing it again right now but from 185lbs, if I don’t fuck up I think next year will be my natty peak.
>>70321678Fish and broccoli
My mom's homemade chocolate chip cookies. Freeze them and eat one a day as a 90 calorie dessert. Also bought an air pop popcorn maker. It is cheap and crappy, but it works. I microwave coconut oil and flavacol to pour on it. Usually around 100 calories of popcorn and 200 of oil. Though often I don't want to waste 300 calories on popcorn.
>>70321922>Why would your body burn valuable, useful muscle over the literal 10kg+ storage of fat that is designed to be used as energy stores for the body?Because muscle is biomechanically expensive to maintain and without the stimulus provided by by exercise the body judges it to be an unnecessary expense. Also you need amino acids for other essential functions within the body and if those aren't being administered externally the body will cannibalize internal sources.
>>70321678Just don't snack.
>>70328469>Because muscle is biomechanically expensive to maintain and without the stimulus provided by by exercise the body judges it to be an unnecessary expense. makes sense if you're starving. Not if you have kilos of fat reserves to draw from instead. >Also you need amino acids for other essential functions within the body and if those aren't being administered externally the body will cannibalize internal sources.see above, if you're eating any amount of protein this isnt a problem
>>70322535post physique faggot
>>70321685You should eat every 3-4 hours
>>7032167880 calorie frozen yogurt things.
>>70326923I can personally attest that its portion size/control fucking with the brain. After years of eating way to big to the point that it was my normal, it took a year of OMAD and prolonged fasting periods to start to slowly clue my brain in that I can eat less and not be ravenous because I've still ate plenty of cal's. Those small refeeds after a 72 really got me used to not having to eat a pile to be feeling full enough.Its so fucking easy to not even realize how fucked your portions are until you're looking back and wondering how the hell you ever packed any of it away.>>70330579Lol. Lmao, even.
>>70321678Heaping spoonful once or twice a day to snuff chocolate cravings.
