Cutting the calories...

#1 Postby Odidnetne » Mon Oct 17, 2005 9:17 pm

Right now I just finished a period of "Bulking up", and put on about 10 pounds in about the past 7 weeks. I just started to cut my calories today, and jogged (at a pretty strenuous pace) 2 miles. I'm only around 1,800 calories for the day, and I'm pretty much done eating, but I was wondering what a good range to stick to is? At the time of this writing I'm 175 pounds (post-bulking), and today I managed to get about...120 grams of protein, I'm just wondering if anyone has any suggestions for a good number to try to aim for each day?
Thanks,
Ed

How strict do you want to be??? If you know your fat free mass and your body type, meso, endo or ecto then I can give you an indication of the exact amount of macronutrients that you will require for an active individual. (Arnie swore by a diet made up of 50% carbs, 20% pro and 30% fat right up to competition).
