Q&A – Cutting Body Fat with Weights and Nutrition
I got another question last week in regards to losing body fat. As you’ll see below his diet plan looks solid. In fact, it looks like a strict bodybuilders diet plan. We also talk a bit about supplements here. One thing I want to make clear is that yes, certain supplements will indeed help you reach your goals. But you have to address the other areas first; weight training and nutrition. And it sounds like he is on a good path.
Two important factors to losing body fat are time consistency. If you’re on a training and nutrition plan, stay on it for a few weeks to see if it’s working. A lot of folks will shift their program almost immediately if they don’t start seeing results fast. Unfortunately it doesn’t work that way. You have to stick to a regimen for at least a few weeks. If you’re not seeing any results at all after a month or so then you can look at making some changes.
I’m 18 years old and I’m trying to cut down from 240lbs(35%BF)and this is what my current diet looks like
Meal 1- 8 egg whites, 1/2 cup oats
PostWorkout- 2 scoops whey
Meal 2- 6oz chicken breast, 1 cup brown rice/vegetables
Meal 3- 6oz chicken breast, 1 cup brown rice/vegetables
Meal 4- 6oz chicken breast, 1/2 cup brown rice/vegetables
Meal 5- 6oz chicken breast, vegetables
Meal 6- 2 scoops whey
The supplements I am taking are
Animal Pak, Pump, Nitro, Omega, Cuts, Universal Glutamine and GH max.
In total I’m getting 315g protien, 165-170g carb and no extra fats besides what in the foods I’m eating. I just wanted to know if this is a good diet for cutting along with the supplements I’m taking. I haven’t started on cuts and gh max yet they come in the mail next week. But is it ok to take all these supplements for cutting? I’ll have to take out the stims from everything except one pack of cuts because I also take prescription med for ADHD. Also is it ok to take gh max at 18, I know it’s not a test booster because I’ve read on forums and heard that taking test boosters stops natural production of testosterone(not sure if true) but gh max won’t cause any problems for me right?
I haven’t started doing this yet but will in Monday. Take animal cuts and do cardio at 4am right when I wake up for 30min then eat my first meal and go to the gym 45min later. And at night I do 45min cardio.
I know it’s a lot of questions and I’m not even sure if this is the right place to be asking you this I just didn’t find a forum or anything on your website. And I know you have said your not a pro or anything but you seem like you know what your doing so any help or advice you could give me on this would be appreciated. Thanks
Your diet looks perfect and you seem to be doing everything right,. The morning and night cardio are perfect for cutting. And the supplements you’re taking are fine. However, you say you’re 35% BF and that is a bit high. So my question is how long have you been on this diet and training program? Did you just start, or have you been doing it for a while? And if you have been doing it for a while, what kind of results have you seen so far? Those answers will allow me to better analyze what you need.
As far as supplements, I would check with your doctor first since you’re taking prescription meds. But natural test boosters won’t harm your natural test production. They way they work is they enhance what you naturally produce. The thing I got from GH Max is deeper sleep which can lead to increased natural growth hormone production.
