    I am about to start a cutting phase for summer but I wanted some additional tips and advice. I currently weigh 185, 5'10 and lift weights 4 X a week and run about 10-15 miles per week.

    I am going to change my diet to the following:

    Breakfast:
    1 protein shake
    1 bowl of Wheaties w skim milk
    3 hard boiled egg whites

    10 am snack : apple

    Lunch
    Canned Tuna on Whole weat wrap with mustard / balsalmic vinegar
    1 sugar free jello pudding
    small tossed salad with balsalmic vinegar

    2pm snack: Turkey on Wheat sandwich

    Dinner
    Grilled Chicken and Veggies.

    Thoughts or Suggestions? I only take Whey Protein and multi-vitamin. Might start taking BCAAs.

    Thanks fellow RJ'ers!

    I've been reading more about Cyclical Ketogenic Diets (CKD) on bodybuilding.com for cutting while preserving/building muscle. The macros you want to hit are 65% Fat, 30% Protein and 5% Carbs. With that framework in mind, I'd kill the Wheaties, apple, whole wheat wrap, jello pudding (empty calories, what's the point), wheat sandwich. I'd add in more veggies, more protein and a lot more fat.

    If your cutting you need to be below 50 carbs a day. It's takes a week for your body to go through ketosis, sucks but you will survive. Eat Clean!!! Cutting stage means keep those carbs down...

    Getting "ripped" for summer should start the previous summer...not mid-Spring.
