  • Layne, have you posted your exact cutting diet before?
    Alex A was telling me I should be eating a lot of carbs while cutting. I eat 300-350g right now (almost 200lbs) What do you suggest I cut them down to? Same with protein (350) and fat (80)? Thanks


    Oh, one more, when do you begin eating carbs in the morning, and when do you stop at night? Cardio on off days in the morning on an empty stomach with a shake right after, and on training days cardio after workout with a shake and waxy maize?

    • my general philosophy is here http://www.bodybuilding.com/fun/layne36.htm

      i think at your age unless you are very insulin resistant, your protein is too high & you could get away with more carbs but it all depends on various factors

            • Layne, I was wondering what factors come into play to make a person look more vasucular. Also why some parts of the day my arms look more veiny and vascular and others not so much even on days i dont work out.
              Thanks

              • Rack Deads

                Layne, What is the optimal height to set the bar for rack deads: mid shin, just below knee, or at the knee? I would like to minimize glute/ham involvement, but still be effective in working the back/traps. Thanks.

                  I think It is just below the knee. However I'm not an expert, nor do I claim to be. I would just put a bit of weight on the bar and try it at various heights and see which one feels like its working the back the most.

                    • Hey Layne, I just wanted to say thank you I tried eating less frequent and higher caloric meals, as opposed to the usual 5-8 smaller meals a day that you see so many people advocate, and have gained both strength and size at a rate I haven't seen since my first few weeks of weight lifting! Plus, as a molecular bio major that researches on the side, it's fantastic to be able to eat on a more normal schedule.

                        • Hey Layne, I had a question about protein intake. Currently, I am taking in about 265 g protein per day (about 1.4 g / lb of bodyweight). I've read that you eat every 4-5 hours. I've also read that you believe the max threshold for protein consumption at one sitting would be 50 g per meal. My question is, how do I get to my daily protein intake if I'm taking 50 g every 4 hours, or even 5?

                          If I eat at 7A, 11A, 3P, 7P and 11P, that would be five meals and only 250 g of protein.

                          Eat at 3 AM?

                          • you don't need more protein than that.

                            that's my point

                                That answer makes me sad. Less food.
