From Bulking to Cutting

Hey lovelies! Happiest of Tuesdays! Hope you all are having a great week so far!

So, the last post I did was a food diary of what I was eating during my bulk. Now that I am on a cut though, I’ve head several of you ask for a food diary of what I’m eating now. This current cut is less calories than my previous cut earlier this year, only because I am trying to get back to my norm pre-accident at a little bit of a faster rate. So, yes, there isn’t quite as much food as I’d like, but that’s just how it is for now 😉 I will say though, IMO, the key to cutting is really paying attention to the brands you buy. For example, some breads are 20g carbs a slice, while others a 10g of carbs. Likewise, there are some yogurts that are over 20g of carbs per container, while another brand may only be 12-15g carbs. It’s easy switches like this that allow you to eat more food throughout the day!

So anyways, I’ve only been doing this cut for less than a week, but there are two food diaries below. As always, any questions or comments, please let me know!!

DAY 1:
-Breakfast: Eggwhite omelet with shredded cheese, tomato, turkey bacon
-Snack 1: Nature Valley Sweet & Salty Nut Bar; 2 Women’s Best protein bites
-Lunch: Salmon burger w/ light mozzarella cheese, and guacamole on a wheat hamburger bun with side of steamed veggies (ps. Pepperidge farm has burger buns that are only 22g carbs, #winning)
-Snack 2: Power Crunch protein energy bar
-Snack 3: Plain greek yogurt with mini chocolate chips, and banana
-Dinner: 2 whole wheat waffles (Costco!!)  with strawberries, whipped cream, and agave
-Snack 4: popcorn (~2 cups)

Day 2:
-Breakfast: 2 whole wheat waffles with strawberries and whipped cream
-Snack 1: Siggis 0% milk fat with Chocolate Coated Cherry Squarebar (use “cemaxwell_bbg for a d/c from @squareorganics:))

-Lunch: Quinoa bowl with kale, guacamole, sliced turkey, and shredded cheese
-Snack 3: Parmesan Cheese crisps (these are from Costco and are addicting!)

      1. How long does your bulk and cut last? How do your macros change between the two? 🙂

      2. It just depends! Some cuts may only be a few weeks while others may last 6 months (it is not recommended to do a cut longer than that). For a bulk, a true bulk usually is done for at least 3-4 months to be able to gain enough weight/muscle to see results but whoever calculates your macros can help you determine that

  1. Would you post your turkey burger recipe?! I remember you saying you got it from your friends and you posted on your IG story but I can’t remember it.
