    Personally trying to determine of lean steaks and EFA's (moderate - low fat intake) or bacon and high fat ground beef will produce the same/better/worse results in terms of fat loss. I used to get bloated from a high fat intake but don't seem to be as effected now, so i'm experimenting more. Thanx Guys

    the metabolic diet and body opus will both cut alot of bf for you-the only thing is, you can't get huge AND CUT because of the lack of carbs

    i would keep carbs at moderate and fat at low and i would also use up most of those carbs earlier in the day. When i cut this works best for me because i am able to maintain my musle gained during bulking.

    Re: Cutting Poll: (low carb, low fat or low carb, high fat

    I take in typically 30% carbs, 25% fats and 45% proteins typically - although I like high fat low carbs as well (as long as carb ups are used)

    If it was me, I'd go with chicken or turkey and eat a red meat meal once a week... I know I eat more red meat and less chicken when bulking.

    Re: Cutting Poll: (low carb, low fat or low carb, high fat

    low carb,high fat(saturated fat 40%, monounsaturated fat 30%, polyunsaturated fat 30&-omega 3 to omega 6, ratio 1:3).
    This works very well for me, keeping my muscle in the natural way(of course 1-2 days of carb-up/week).
