Default Scivation & Charlesbois Cut Diet

I'm finding that my weight loss is going too slowly, primarily because I now sit all day long. I need to bump my calories down to 2000 to 2300 per day. I;m also starting to explore some different cutting diet approaches.

I have the Scivation e-book and the Lifestyle diet by Charlesbois. Haven't read them yet though. Anyone have any personal experience with either approach?

I sit all day. I know my body fairly well after 23 years of bodybuilding-style eating. 2400 to 2500 when I am active used to lead to a rock solid weight loss. I'm going bump it down to 2000 to 2100 for a month and see what happens. Regarding restructuring, not exactly sure what you mean.

I am planning on incorporating some cardio.

Fundamentally, their diet is the same as this -
The Tight Tan Slacks of Dezso Ban: Training Down - Anthony Ditillo

And ^^^ this is a much easier read.

A quote I liked.

Quote:
Three times per day, after each of my main meals, I would fill a whiskey glass with safflower oil and I would drink it down. I forced myself to bear the taste until now I donít mind it at all. And suddenly things began to happen. First of all, my weight shot down to 228 in a matter of days. And for the first time since I began the experiment my lifts began to improve. Up, up, up went my squat. Down, down, down went bodyweight and most important of all, my waistline. And all the while I was simply overjoyed at the entire affair. It seemed that at last I had found the right way for me.

a few things to consider

-if you like me and cant stand cardio, try doing complexes and gpp work.
- try looking into metabolic typing, C&P had some goodies on his site for it
