Here is a basic rundown of a diet to follow when cutting. In the morning you want to have ½ cup of oats and 6-8 eggs whites. For lunch, grilled chicken cooked on a George Foreman grill (or any fat separating grill) and ¾ cups of brown rice with broccoli on the side. For your snack in the middle of the day you should have ½ cup of oats along with WPI Protein. Dinner will consist of grilled chicken, string beans, and 1 sweet potato. Remember, your dinner is your pre-workout meal.
Your post-workout meal will be a scoop of WPI with either a banana or an apple. Then an hour before you go to sleep you will have ½ cup of cottage cheese and ¼ cup of almonds mixed into it.
It should be noted that using fish oil along with a sound nutritional plan is excellent for your health. Consume water as much as possible throughout the day. Drink a glass of water with every meal, in between meals and after. It will help suppress appetite and water will keep your system hydrated. However, be sure not to drink too much before you go to bed or else you will find yourself waking up every two hours to use the bathroom.
I like to have some days where I substitute chicken with salmon or top round steaks. It’s good for a change. You have to remember that a cutting diet isn’t something everyone can do. Some will try and give up within a couple of weeks. This diet is only a guide to follow to help set you on your path.
