The cutting phase of any bodybuilding diet is without a doubt the most difficult and one needs to stay alert for things like emotional eating or eating when you get bored. It is something that gets easier with practice but it certainly is not easy.
It starts and ends with preparation and making sure that you know exactly where the next meal is coming from. But that will only come from planning ahead and prepared your next meal before you leave home for the day. It needs only half an hour of preparation so you can pack your meals into Tupperware containers.
Preparing your meals for the next day by cooking them up the night before or the morning before you leave home is the only way to make sure that you are going to stick to your plan. Obviously it will depend on how drastic your fat-loss requirement is but you should aim for about 2 grams of carbs per kilogram of bodyweight.
Obviously the quality fats that you eat are very important if you do not want to lose all the hard gained muscle that you have gained. Just as important is the quality and the amount of protein that you have to eat while on your cutting diet.
The cutting diet listed below is just a sample of what you could use to cut up but it would obviously depend on your own specific requirements of how much fat you need to lose to look the best you can. It will also depend on how much time you have left so you know how to tighten it up as you get closer to competition.
