A Cutting Meal Plan is designed to help you to get down to a low percentage of body fat while still preserving muscle. This sample nutrition plan is similar to what a bodybuilder may do for pre-contest.
The basis of this sample plan is to keep your carb intake well below your protein intake. This is not to say that no carb or low carb diets don’t work for some people, they’ve helped many successfully lose weight. But losing weight isn’t our goal here because in doing so you tend to lose a lot of muscle. We want to preserve and maintain as much muscle lean muscle mass as possible while dropping our body fat as low as we can.
This sample cutting meal plan is about as simple as it gets. The meals consist of basic foods. You can substitute foods as you wish. Just be mindful of the content (calories, protein, carbs, fats, etc.). This is a sample cutting meal plan for one day. Use it as a guide to build your own.
