Beardbrah has gone full retard.

Basically, I used to be good at eating - bulking, cutting, I knew what to eat. I knew which foods had good macro ratios. I knew how to count calories.

But, I forgot all of that and tried to live the normal life - I stopped caring about my protein intake, I stopped caring about calories, meal timing, cleanliness of foods - for all reasonable intents and purposes, I ate like a "normal person".

But now I wish to cut, and have no idea what my cutting diet should look like - as in, what foods I should eat. Daily targets: 2000kcal max, 150g protein, carb:fat ratio not fussed. Expecting to hit around ~200g daily carbs.

So, recommendations for foods to eat on this cut?

Lean meats, chicken, turkey, fish, egg whites, whey

Load up on green veg especially if you're getting hungry.

you know what macros to aim for, follow those for a good few weeks and see how you are progressing. Take photos, measurements and scales. If not losing, re-evaluate

Are you going cardio? Try and keep it to a minimum at first and see how you get off with the diet. You want to have lots of tools in the basket, don't use them all at once

Use a tracker for a bit? It's how I developed a sense of what I'm eating. I'd think about what I'd like to eat for the week (I cook in batches so eat pretty much the same thing for 5-7 days) then put it into a tracker, play around with it as needed then go do the shopping/cooking

Have you calculated your maintenance calories rather than your metabolic rate. Once you figured that out then just hit your macros and eat less than your maintenance calories ( up to you to decide the deficit).
If you're cutting and lifting I recommend higher protein intake 1.2-1.6g of protein per pound of body weight. Lower your carbs but not too low stay between 100-200g, gradually lowering it from 200 to 100 as you go down to lower bf%.
Meats: Lean Chicken, Turkey, Lean Fish, Lean beef
Carbs: Porridge, Wholemeal Bread, Sweet potatoes etc.. anything that is a complex carbohydrate.
Vegtables: Broccolli, Spinach, Cauliflower etc..
Fruits: Apple, orange but keep in mind between 100g-200g of carbs.

Choose between high intensitiy or slow long cardio 3-4 times a week with a lifting routine between 3-5 times a week.
Good Luck

There are.. reasons..that I won't lose any muscle mass running 2000kcal. You get a gold star if you guess right.

Lold. Love how everyone in this thread has treated me like an utter retard - "calculate maintenance calories brauh" and "eat 1.2-1.6g of protein bruh". I know this. I just want to know WHAT foods to eat.

"Eat less of what youre currently eating" isn't of much use to me when my diet is coke, chocolate, cereal, sandwiches, and sainsburys mini chocolate flapjack bites, and cigarettes.

First answer was correct, it's hard to lose muscle mass when you don't have any. I actually don't even lift.

Food choices are pretty simple. Lean meats, natural wholesome foods, no processed jazz. Lots of leafy green veg to keep you full.

Eat usual BBing food. It's boring and very not fancy however it gets results for basically everyone.

Have a lowish carb shake prior to every meal. This will give you moar proteinz which is never a bad thing.

Or google apex predator diet and do that. It's crazy but it works.

I'm pretty sure his alter ego went on a sainsburys Quark binge a while ago. It was the rage. I haven't tried it yet.

On a side note, I get annoyed when people hint this suggestion at me. It makes me feel like trying to take care of myself for the good of my physical and mental health and confidence makes me some sort of super-freak. Some people in this country have a messed up attitude to a healthy lifestyle :roll eyes:

Regarding this, I would have thought cutting down on these on a cut would be way more obvious than calculating macros and protein requirements. The NHS recommends this, come on :P

It's all about going natty brah lean meats, eggs, (some) milk and dairy (?) shiploads of veg, low on the carbs, basically zilch sugar-so most of that stuff except maybe your own homemade sandwich

I'm not meaning to be patronising, just 'showing you the light' per se. Not that I'd ever survive a cut lol.
