For 10 pounds or less, start cutting 2-3 months ahead. For 20 pounds or more, start cutting 4-5 months ahead. Add 1-2 weeks for any major foreseeable obstacles. If such extended time is not on your side, I recommend at minimum six weeks for any cutting program.
Similarly, it is asked, what foods to eat when cutting?
Foods I recommend you buy: I encourage you to start eating more whole foods and fewer food products. You should buy: chicken, pork tenderloin, lean cuts of beef, tuna, eggs, cottage cheese, greek yogurt, rice, potatoes, sweet potatoes, pasta, 1-2 fruits a day and lots of veggies.
What foods to eat to get lean and cut?
Your new shopping list should comprise lean cuts of meat, seafood, fresh vegetables, fruit, nuts (in moderation), and natural starches such as rice, potatoes, and whole grains. Bread, baked goods, pasta, cereal, regular soda, booze, and desserts must be cut out entirely until further notice.
What should I eat for breakfast when cutting?
Give us a typical day in your cutting diet:
