    Hi men. I've recently reached my goal weight with lots of hard work and a ton of eating!! (that was the best part) So anyway I'm 5'9" and currently weigh 160 pounds. I'd like to start getting cut but don't really know what the first step should be.

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    This should get you cut pretty quickly...especially if you don't know how to properly slice sashimi. icon_lol.gif

    Oh yeah, and try the Paleo diet. I used to be 70 lbs heavier.

    Watch what you eat. Eat healthier and cut your calorie intake.

    Agreed. HIIT is very effective, in combo with weight training and a good, balanced nutritional plan.

    So I've tried intermittent fasting to do recomposition, and it has worked very well for me so far. Here's a very helpful website:

    Just checked your pics....

    Uhm, I think you're Already cut dude.
    If you want to get ripped, try upping your cardio and protein, and lower your carb intake.

    I agree on HIIT and weight training, but there is nothing unbalanced about Paleo. If anything it forces you to eat more healthy.

    Hey all

    Thanks for the responses. Super helpful....except for the ones about knives. I think I'll stay away from actually cutting myself.

    I just get confused when it comes to diet. I feel like working out comes more intuitively to me. When to eat, what to eat and how much to eat always twists my brain around a bit.

    I definitely appreciate the advice!

    You said it was hard to put on weight, it is easy for you to lose?

    If so, be careful. A lot of people (including myself last year) make the mistake of going back to skinny boy ways of not eating very much and doing cardio. You'll shed pounds but also the muscle you built!

    It was hard for me to learn (and good for my ADD) that lowering bodyfat through diet comes slowly with tweaking rather than drastic changes. I went from 15% to around 12 now, aiming for 10 and I've kept near the same weight.

    There are some good posts/articles on bodybuilding.com in the advanced nutrition section. I can't find the specific one I like, but she lays out all the physiological formulas and parameters for weight loss, maintenance and gaining. Check it out!
