Should I change workout when cutting?
As long as you’re using an appropriate volume and intensity in your workouts and maintaining a moderate calorie deficit, you probably won’t have any trouble recovering from your workouts, and thus don’t need to change anything while cutting. In fact, you may even be able to gain muscle and lose fat at the same time.
How long should a cut last?
A cutting diet lasts 2–4 months, depending on how lean you are before dieting, and is normally timed around bodybuilding competitions, athletic events, or occasions like holidays ( 4 ). A cutting diet aims to get you as lean as possible while maintaining muscle mass.
What should I eat for cutting?
- lean meat and poultry, oily fish, and eggs.
- milk, yogurt, and low fat cheese.
- protein powders such as whey, hemp, rice, and peas.
- beans and pulses.
- nuts and seeds.
- avocados, olive oil, and olives.
