Cutting Meal Planner
There are a lot of meal planners out there but mine are specifically for athletes. What’s the difference? Athletes and bodybuilders have higher protein needs and also have more dietary discipline than the general population. The other difference is that bodybuilders always are looking to maximize gains are willing to do what it takes to get optimal results. What is “optimal” fat loss? My definition is to lose the fat as quickly as possible without losing any muscle. The fastest way to lose fat is to stop eating completely but that is not optimal because you cannibalize a lot of muscle in the process. Likewise, a “cut” hovering around your TDEE is just a waste of time. Most bodybuilders are very good at intuitively being able to maintain bodyfat without calorie counting and they are also good at knowing how to do a clean bulk but when it comes to cutting, even I have trouble nailing it – thats where this meal planner comes in. No muss, no fuss. Plug in your data and its tells you the optimal meals with optimally sized portions as well as how long your cut will take!
Lets look at the difference between this weight loss meal planner and my cutting meal planner so you can choose the meal plan that best suits your needs:
|meals/day||caloric reduction||diet type||protein|
|Weight Loss Meal Planner||4||-25%||low fat||1g/lb|
|Cutting Meal Planner (this page)||6||-25%||low carb||very high|
|Free custom meal planner||3-6||-25% to +25%||Low carb, Medium carb, Keto, Paleo, Mediterranean||0.5 – 1.25 g/lb|
If you are a serious bodybuilder or athlete with less than 10 pounds of fat to remove then I would suggest the cutting meal planner. If you have more than 10 pounds fat to remove I would suggest this weight loss meal planner because its better for long duration use. If you don’t like the foods in these plans, use the free custom meal planner where you give your taste preferences and then a perfect days worth of planned meals is designed based upon your goals and your personal metabolic rate.
