    Play some Civ and you'll forget about the hunger. I routinely lose 1-3 pounds after 12 hours playing Civ. icon_lol.gif

    Yeah, I decided to change diets for the next month or two, depending on well it turns out. Starting to cycle carbs. It was nice to have oatmeal and fruit again. icon_smile.gif

    Cardio. Or is this some paul joke that I'm just not getting?

    Regarding the OP, I feel the same way. I've been cutting for a few weeks but I couldn't take it anymore and tonight I've eaten more food than I have all day. My abs were beginning to show but food taste so good.

    Yep. icon_wink.gif
    Cutting is more to do with diet than cardio.

    Yeah cardiovascular can cause u to burn muscle instead of fat if you do it too often.

    Focus more on lifts. All the muscle repair and growth your body does as a result of weightlifting makes you burn more calories all day long.

    knit a sweater or some fairly sizeable piece of clothing, socks also work too!

    hang out with old ladies chatting, knitting and sipping tea. you can go for hours and not get that hungry.

    believe me, i've done it - worse idea when it comes to bulking and eating every 2-3 hours.

    LOL. Why are you guys "cutting"? Unless you're competing for a bodybuilding competition, why resort to rollercoaster diets? Just watch what you eat all year long and maintain your workout routine. The fat will gradually go away.

    Diet is my downfall. I actually enjoy challenging myself with workouts but not eating what I want, when I want, is so hard for me. I'm trying to get better at eating clean.
