    It's been pretty rough, but I knew it had to be done so I could dominate tonight! Been drinking a lot of water today too.

    looking to cut down from a constant 168-172 lbs to 155-160 by July 4th.

    Started carb cycling last week and went down from 174.4 to 168.8 this morning. Thinking of just keeping on cycling my carbs until i hit my target weight. I don't want to lose much of my muscle though. Any recommendations?

    I'm too big of a guy to cut that severely. If I'm on a huge caloric deficit it impacts my mood horribly. Like depression, hate life, srs.

    Eliminate sugar, eat healthy fats and lots of veggies. Keep your baseline activity levels up every day. Drink lots of water.

    Since last monday (5/8)

    First week was torture, but my body is starting to maintain some energy on the low carb days. I highly recommend it. The one thing i highly suggest is that you prep all of your meals for the lower carb days. Such much temptation to eat carbs lol

    Right on!

    For all the muscle i gained since i was in a "bulk", would that get some how lost in the carb cycle/increased cardio? people have been telling me to keep my cardio sessions shorter/more intense to keep dem gainz whilst losing fat

    and I've heard just the opposite! Long low intensity cardio so your heart rate doesn't get dominantly high and starts using more than just your glucose and fat for energy. If you get your heart rate up too high, your muscle will start burning away my like dreams.. (right?)

    No, you won't lose muscle. Muscle is very hard to actually lose. The things is that a lot of water is stored in muscle tissue. So when guys start cutting and/or eliminating carbs (carbs store water) they think they're losing muscle. They're not, they're just losing water in the muscle tissue and "deflating" but all your muscle is still there.
