week 2
No change in inches, no change on the scale!
Leg workout done with 4kgs+
I dont know why but my cut is feeling like bulk to me

Sometimes thats the way it is! Often when thats the case a comparison of side by side photos months apart reveals all. I know it's hard to get your head round, nothing budging can mean progress! We are so fixed on seeing something move and equate that to progress.

i stayed consistent with my workouts and -15%cut for 4 weeks without any changes so i went down to -20% and added some light walks 20 to 30 mins to releif stress.It has been 2 weeks now at -20% and i have started seeing visible differences in pictues and clothes seem to get loose.The total time of my cut is now 6 weeks and i had planned to go for a TDEE break after six weeks but now when i have strated seeing come changes should i stick to the cut for the next two weeks and complete the cut for 8 weeks or should i take the break and then move to the third cut with -20%??

My personal opinion? The most I would cut for is 6 weeks, comes from my personal experience of doing several cuts of varying lengths. Then after 6 weeks 2 weeks at maintenance, I found 1 week just wasn't long enough plus a podcast I listened to last year, the research suggested that it takes two weeks for all the important hormones etc in the body to return to normal levels after a cut.

You maybe feel completely different, so maybe time to experiment yourself with how long you cut for and how long your diet breaks are. If the thought of an extra 2 weeks at 20% cut seem easy as pie then I'd strongly suggest going to TDEE for a break.

Thanx for your reply. Actually thats the main point which is confusing me to continue or to take a break coz i am dying to take a break and feel hungry almost ALL the time so cut aint so easy at the moment, but i am also happy to see some movement at the right direction after almost being 5 months in this jounery. Gained almost 15 kgs till now and all my summer wardrobe seems to get new clothes but i hope i would get some fit till the vacations!

RE: Getting ahead.....
8 weeks almost complete for the 2nd cut ( including a rest week). Looks like 20% cut worked for me. 6 inches down=D>:thumbsup:!
1" fr both upper arms
1" fr both thighs
2 inches fr the hips.
Although the belly area is showing no measurements down, the belly pooch is down in the pics.
After a Tdee break next week will ahead to a 3rd cut from 1st May.( 6 weeks cut this time):thumbsup:

RE: Getting ahead.....
Losing inches is huge, that's the loss we need to focus on! Woohoo!

Your comment about your belly made me think of the measurement tip EM2WL has about measuring front and back, not just the circumference. You may be adding muscle in the back area while decreasing fat in the front, making the circumference the same, for example. http://eatmore2weighless.com/tips-on-measuring/

Enjoy your TDEE break!
