    I've found that protein and fats all day and then 100 grams of carbs pre-workout and 100 grams of carbs post workout seems to work the best...a typical training day diet for me looks like this:

    Meal 1- 2 scoops isolate with 1 scoop karbolic (60grams carbs)

    Meal 2- 6-8 oz of 93/7 lean ground turkey and 2 cups brown rice

    Meal 3- Quest Nutrition Protein bar

    Meal 4- 8 oz chicken breast with 1 cup brown rice

    Meal 5- post workout protein shake with 1 scoop karbolic

    Meal 6- 8-10 oz steak and a yam

    Meal 7- 2 scoops protein mixed in 2 servings of fat free greek yogurt

    So even on my high carb days, I never really exceed 400 grams of carbs...most are usually around 200..I also do low intensity cardio post weights for 30min 4x per week

    Nah they make you fat mate, years ago my overweight next door neighbour who smoked 30 fags a day and ate takeaways every night told me so.

    Nowt wrong with protein shakes as part of a fat loss diet. PSMF can be quite effective for some.

    I would go with a basic myprotein whey concentrate though to ensure that one is getting in the protein without risk of any additional and unforeseen MCT, carbs, etc that is present in some of the MRP masquerading as protein powders.

    Agree mate but the post came across as implying that using protein shakes 'for weight loss' implies that using them will cause weight loss, maybe its just the phrasing and I'm being pedantic but this certainly isn't the case, a calorie defecit is all that matters for most, however its created.

    Id also disagree strongly that using protein shakes is beneficial to health, unless their malnourished... id rather choose whole food wherever possible. Shakes for me are a convenience addition for times I'm stuck for time/or just being lazy (more often than not recently :P)

    Just don't want anybody thinking the addition of whey is going to aid their fat loss when its purely about creating a defecit... Which sure enough, shakes can play a small part in with the right diet.

    I'm pretty new to the dieting thing and really looking to cut the remaining fat down on the abs area. Any ideas on a typical effective diet/food plan which could help on this?

    I'm surprised that some people here are quite unorthodox and found their own techniques in dieting. :thumb:

    What works for me so far is caloric deficit at 15%. I eat anything.

    U cant really reduce fat in any specific spot, fatloss is systematic for the majority its hard to get rid of the stubborn belly n lower back fat as its a natural place for us to hold it, men belly area, woman arse, hips and top of legs predominantly.

    Good point and u can diet eating crap, however 50g of haribo vs 50g of rice.....portion wise the cleaner food will be more satisfying and if in a calorie defecit then ur just gonna be hungry eating goodies over good quality food ultimately. Id rather eat a little more and do cardio but some will gladly eat less over doing cardio...

    A lot of my "average" genetics (and non/low supplement user) clients have found great results with PSMF for a certain number of days per week along side ever so slightly surplus days (training days). This holds muscle very well and gives days where the client doesn't feel like they're on a diet 24/7.

    I didnt mean that. Lol @haribo. I dont have a strict diet that I follow, but more like I eat moderately and so long as it will all sum up on a deficit. but yes, whatever floats out boats, or whatever works for us.

    I found carb cycling worked great especially combined with fasted cardio got me down from about 15% to 8-9%bf in about 12 weeks with minimal muscle loss
