Hi guys
I am switching from a cutting diet (tspa) to a high fat low carb bulking diet (mans) very soon and I am wondering how to best transition between the two? Read a lot about reverse dieting, and eating at maintenace for a while after a cut before increasing to bulking macros.

If anyone has any advice it would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers
Ryan

Hi Mark,

I am working out at night and drinking a protein shake following. I don't eat until late morning the next day, fasting about 11-12 hours. I'm trying intermittent fasting and doing all my eating in an 8 hour window.

I'm 5'7", 195 lbs and 23% body fat. My goal is to lose fat and gain muscle.

Am I robbing my gains by not eating after my workout?

Mark,

Need to cut and I have your TSPA program but doc recently flagged me for having protein in my urine and is concerned that my kidneys are having an issue. Not sure now what to eat or supplement, don't want to take creatine since I think this will just make matters worse..

Thoughts on how to cut..?

Hi Mark, I always thought yogurt was a good source of protein to add to my daily diet as a snack in between meals. I do not recall you mentioning it as a source of your daily protein intake. If not, could you explain why. I just read something recently about yogurt and it's negative effects regarding increases in estrogen levels which of course is not good for a male weight trainer. Your thoughts

I was wondering which strategy from musclehack.com would be the best for this Month of Mass challenge: MANS or GLAD?
I'm very fond of MANS, it helped me a lot when I received a type-2 diabetes diagnosis. After a solid 6-month period of MANS dieting, all my "wrong" blood markers have been reduced.

Thanks!

Started TSPA on Jan 5. Starting weight=190 with 19% body fat, working out 5 days/week. Age=64. Macros indicated are: carbs-70, protein-192, fat-130, calories-2218.

After 5 weeks my weight is 187.4 and body fat remains at 19%. I expected better results, especially since one typically loses weight faster when starting a new program. I'm only averaging about 0.5 lbs per week rather than the 1.5

Hi Mark,

I read your article where you say starting to consume your protein shake during your workout is actually the better option. Does this hold true for TSPA as well and even on carb up days? Or, is it best to wait til directly after?

Thanks in advance.

Hi Mark,

In your latest blog post, Best On-The-Go Protein Snacks, you advise against protein bars with the main protein source being derived from soy? Could you explain why that is or provide other info on that?

Thanks!
Justin

Hi

I'm currently doing the diet for the six pack and have adapted it for me but I was wondering as I haven't reached my target yet of 10% body fat, is that because I'm not eating enough carbs? I'm in my third week of the diet

I eat:

190g Protein
55g Carbs
118g Fat

Also, wondering where I should measure for my body fat percentage?

Thanks
