Cutting Diet Plan

Our diet for cutting is adjustable depending on how many calories your deficit allows you to eat. With that in mind, we’ve listed options and approximate calories from each part of the day.

As mentioned previously, you’ll need to manually work out your calorie deficit which can be done with an online calculator. You’ll want to maintain macronutrient ratios of around 30-50% calories from carbs, 30-40% from protein and 20% from good fats.
