    Eating to cut

    March 27, 2019, 6:20 pm

    Hey Scott, I am deciding to go on a mini cut (more like shred some fat off my stomach) in around 6 weeks time. I am currently consuming around 3400 calories daily to bulk up before that. I have a few questions regarding the bulk and cut.

    1. I drink 2 large protein shakes a day, which consists of protein powder, peanut butter, bananas, vegetables and fruits in them to get the most amount of vitamins and minerals as much as possible. Each shake contains around 600 calories and these shakes make up a lot of my calories and macros for the day, especially for protein. I believe it's ok to consume liquid calories as long as you are getting the nutritious foods inside your body somehow in any shape or form. Is it ok to drink a lot of liquid calories when bulking up?

    2. When i flex my obliques, the muscles show quite well but i do have a layer of body fat on my lower abs and obliques (love handles) and i find it annoying, so what exercises would you recommend i do in order to maximise the fat loss i am going to do for about 4 weeks?

    3. Would you recommend I try and lift as heavy as possible during that time so i don't lose muscle mass? I do not plan to do this mini cut to look as lean and shredded as possible because i do lack the muscle mass in order to do that.

     

    Thank you so much Scott!! Have an awesome day!

    If you burn just 1,600 calories per day, a 5,000-calorie, one-day binge represents a 3,400-calorie surplus, so you might gain almost a pound as a result. Keep in mind that some people may burn more than 3,200 calories per day depending on their metabolism, so your experience might be slightly different.
