I've found that the easiest way to make myself want to change is to learn to hate myself. Or, at the least, hate certain parts of yourself. Once your hate for whatever negative attribute you think you have overcomes your desire for keeping things easy and comfortable for yourself, you will have won. All that's left is time.
I love this ^^^

I think thats probably a little unnecessarily high for a cut. If thats what you want, you can always manipulate your carbs and fat depending on lifting/off days but you may run the risk of losing more muscle mass if your carbs are too low

Good point. I guess it depends what he's doing specifically.

Just try some stuff out and see how you feel and work from there

Personally, I would lower fat on both days as thats pretty high for a cut. Then again, I am not totally sure what your energy expenditure is like over there so I am hesitant to tell you to lower cals too much (although you will eventually have to go lower than that to reach 12% bf). Give it a try for a week and see what the scale says and adjust accordingly

I mean, I'm over here, but I've gotten blown up too many times to go out on missions anymore. I'm a staff weenie. 3 square(ish) meals, workout time, lots of meetings.

I probably burn like 2400 kcal a day. Maybe.

Going on 3 weeks now and I can't seem to cut any weight. I don't know if I'm counter-acting myself in the mornings though. I wake up at 6:45 and eat 2 eggs and 2 sausage patties/links for breakfast, decently heavy lifting for about 45 mins and 30 mins of cardio moderate intensity at about 8 then around 10 drink a protien shake. I eat mainly chicken or fish for every meal (usually lunch and dinner) and 90% of the time grill it myself. I thow in brown rice or quinoa and usually some sort of simple veggie like peas or green beans. In the afternoon if I'm feeling hungry I'll drink another protien shake which is usually every day. I'm 6' and been stuck at 228-230 for the last 3 weeks and it's driving me crazy. I'm also fairly active at work and through the rest of the day but nothing crazy

Through the day I might have a handful of oats or a small handful of mini pretzels as well.

How much your eating is more important than what your eating.

Yes. Also try just one protein shake like the one just after lifting. substitute the other one for chicken fish or steak! I actually probably only have steak a total of about once maybe twice a week id say 4 out of my 6 meals are chicken. also try cutting carbs from rice or pasta like 3 or 4 hours before bed. if you eat veggies its good too. You should be eating a meal every two hours or so.

That's what's messing me up. I'm positive I'm not eating too much, but maybe not enough. Usually its like a good size chicken breast or 8-9oz of fish and 1.5-2 cups of rice and veggies.

Not eating enough bro. You gotta eat more than you burn or your body will shut down and that will screw you in the long run. Eat a bigger breakfast. Through a cup of oats in there for breakfast.

eat a lot to fuel your muscles. Muscle at idle burn more calories then fat at idle. Meal frquency and amount will turn your body into a fat burning machine. I was sick.. had to miss the gym a lot for 3 weeks cut it to like 2 or three times a week and kept my meals frequent and didnt gain anything.
