  • A few cutting questions

    Hi Jordan, been cutting for 1.5 months now and its going fine.

    1) I know it doesnt affect weight outcomes, assuming compliance is the same. But does food quality, carb sources etc affect body comp outcomes when cutting (i.e. fat loss to muscle loss ratio or weight loss to WC)? Are there any other factors that could influence this?

    2) I vaguely remember you putting up new protein recommendations recently. which seem to be less than the previous one. Does this also apply for cutting?

    3) Is there any difference for a 227lb guy in terms of body comp if he takes 100-150g of protein vs 250lbs when cutting? And replacing it with carbs for example?

    4) How common is it for appetite to drop while cutting? Been struggling to put food in lately. Already lost 13-15 lbs.

    AG,

    1) Nope, outside of fiber intake. Yes, lots of factors influence things like genetics, training, protein intake, for example.

    2) Yes. They aren't really different outside of expanding the range of viable protein intakes.

    3) Yes. We recommend 2-3.1grams of protein per kg BW during periods of weight loss.

    4) Not particularly common, but everyone has their own individual experience!

      When you say training, what do you mean? How about for e.g. a highish volume vs low volume program? Or different intensities? Does that influence final body comp when on a cut?

        All training variables have the potential to influence training outcomes to varying degrees. I would not try to reduce it down to one particular factor.

          In what way does fiber intake change body comp outcomes when cutting? Hadn't heard of that before

            Higher fiber intakes for a given calorie intake produce more weight loss, in general. Also tend to be more health-promoting in general.

              That's interesting, wasn't aware that was the case. Cheers

                You have said before that supplementing fiber is inferior to fiber from natural sources. Why is that the case?

                  The other components of fruits and vegetables, e.g. flavonoids, vitamins, phytonutrients, etc. may all play a role, but we don't really know for certain.

                    Alright. Does the daily mix of soluble and insolubles matter to us?

                      As mentioned above, I would increase fiber intake via fruits and vegetables.
