Am I cutting correctly?
by Body Soul
I am 22 years old.
On Wednesday, the 01.06.2016, I started my cutting phase.
I started with 33 waist inches and 85.1 kg weight.
My total calories for this cutting month has been the following:
1st week - 2.800 cal.
2nd week - 2.700 cal.
3rd week - 2550 cal.
4th week - 2400 cal.
As you can see I am currently at 2.400 calories right now, and my exact macros are split the following way:
- 330g Carbs
- 180g Protein (about 2-2,5g per kilo weight)
- 40g Fat
You will notice that I am doing a high-carb/low fat diet instead of a low-carb diet, because fat has way more calories and also because I don't want to feel de-energised throughout the entire day.
Sometimes I don't match my macros exactly, and go over my proteins grams per day, but I never exceed my calories total! I just ate less fat on some days.
I currently weight 82.6 kg and my waist is about 32,7 inches.
I am wondering if I am doing everything correctly? I mean, I did loose some weights yes, but I think this was mostly water weight... and my waist barely decreased in size..
Would be glad to get your guys opinion on this :-)
