You plan to diet on 1500 cals and train twice a week? Dude just go back on the chips and booze, donít bother. The results will both be shit

^This

Just lower carbs to 100g a day. Eat all the natural fats and protein you want. Youíll get lean and retain myscle.

That's pretty much what I'm doing right now.  Mostly chicken and veggies with a little brown rice, so my carbs are under 100 a day.  I'm guessing I'm eating around 1,800 cals or so, but it's not like I'm really counting or anything.  Just eating til I'm full

thats the number i get when i calcuate the numbers.

ive been lower before. no big deal for me. eating more than 150 grams of protein per day is though. especially if you dont drink milk, use protein powder, eat chicken, tuna, sardines and what not.

1500 calories might be a bit low, realistically 1700... today is the first day! so far so good. well its more a mental thing than anything... that you CANT eat what you want... im not even sure that i want to, but the fact that i just cant go grab a burger... thats very un-free-ing (if thats a word)

i measured my waist its about 34"

if u reduce your lifting volume you loose muscle, hence youre back where you started.....

Heres the key, get your body used to doing a certain amount of volume on high calories

Now replace as many calories as possible with protien without cutting calories and maintain 80 to 90 percent of your volume in the gym....you will lose very little muscle maintaining 90% volume

update:

been almost a week on my diet now, i will give myself 3 outta 5 stars. been little low on protein and cheated a little bit and havent been to the gym at all, time for some improvements for next week!

other than that no problems... im probably around 1700 calories per day. just eating one large meal per day is no problem.

i suppose im on some kinda fast if you wanna call it that... i dont eat until lunch and i dont eat after midnight

My diet was fairly tight but I did indulge here and there, kept my carbs at about 350-400. Started yesterday by just cleaning it up for the next couple of weeks. Like I said, since the end of March I went from 236 to my lowest at the end of Sept to 206 now back up to 218-220 fairly lean. Don't know where I'll compete at but looking somewhere around 202-205.

This was taken yesterday...

COACH, I'd like to recommend that you start tour own topic concerning your contest prep so that these GetBiggers can see the results leading up to your cotest inluding the day of ... and the week following ... with photos.

I'll bet ya a dollar to a doughnut that most all will say that you looked better seven days (that's one week) after your event.

Most of it is documented on my social media.
