I put together this overview of what I eat in a day This was from when I was on a 4-week cut - my macros have changed since then as I didn't want to stay too low for too long. My macros change dependent on my training, and my goals. After I got back from an indulgent week in Cabo- getting engaged means lots of champagne ;), I decided to put myself on this cut. However, it hardly looks like I was depriving myself… doesn't it?! If you do it right, even daily nutrition aimed at cutting fat can mean plenty of food!
This sample day is for educational purposes only. Everyone requires a unique amount specific to their individual needs! That's why working with a coach for at least 12 weeks is important for proper setting and adjusting of your macros, as well as for careful monitoring of your cut, bulk and/or athletic performance support!
Fibre one brownie
Chicken Salad & 2 caramel chocolate rice Cake
150g chicken breast
2 tbsp Guacamole & Balsalmic vinagrette dressing
Chopped romaine lettuce heart
+ 2 rice cakes

Chicken, Sweet Potato & Salad
Chicken Thighs (160g)
1 cup Sweet Potato
total for the day:
The quest bar is easy to grab and eat, but might not leave you feeling full…. you can get the same macros but way more volume if you turn it into some good, whole foods like veggies/fruits etc.
Can you believe how much food you can eat while on a 'cut?!'
