Interested in opinions. While on a cut I dropped to 2k calories a day. Extremely clean eating. A little change after 2 weeks but nothing drastic. I then dropped to 1k cals a day. Few days in. Noticeable drop in weight fast. Obviously I’m cutting but also as anyone knows even on cycle I’m losing a little muscle but not noticeable yet.
Bodybuilder A- thinks I need to increase food intake and hit cardio more.
Bodybuilder B- thinks I need to drop all carbs and just go full keto and eat until I’m not hungry.
Trainer (Nationally recognized and cut as fuck all the time)- thinks I should keep with the drop in cals on mixed foods and increase cardio.
At this point I’m wondering which is the best solution considering the goals. Also considering switching up the protocols every couple weeks as well.
All people practice what they preach and really good condition. So not just spewing shit out their ass. A is the best overall condition (size and cut). B is the largest (most muscle but never shredded-still maintains abs). Trainer good size and lives pretty much shredded year around.
Interested in ideas and considering keeping a log on this as well.
Standard diet 2k
240 grams oats. 2 full eggs, 6 egg whites, flax seeds.
