10 “Must-Haves” In Your Diet When Cutting

1.  Coffee.

No brainer.  Caffeine is a stimulant and an appetite suppressant.  If you’re hungry in the morning, it’s almost a guarantee you won’t be after downing a large Americana from Starbucks.

Or is it”venti”?


2.  Veggies.

Gotta, gotta, gotta. If not for the simple fact that they are filler and will help with hunger in the short term, the extra fiber will slow digestion.  This keeps aminos in the system longer and eases the pain required to make it from meal to meal.

Plus, they help with the “boom, booms”.  If you don’t know what I mean, have kids.  You will then.


3.  Hot sauce.

Zero calorie.  Delicious.  Manly.

The saying is “I put that shit on everything” for a reason.


4.  Water.

And loooooots of it.  5, 6, 7 LITERS worth.  If you’re hungry and can’t eat for awhile, an easy trick is to slam a liter of water as fast as possible.

Crude?  Yes.  But sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do.


5.  Fat-free, sugar-free Jello pudding.

Just because you’re on a cut doesn’t mean you don’t like sweet things.  Mix your favorite flavor in the blender with fat-free cottage cheese, Splenda/Stevia, and some unsweetened almond milk, and have a very low-fat, low-carb, high protein sweet treat.


6.  Diet pop.

Diet pop does not cause weight gain.  That’s a myth.  It’s associated with weight gain since those who drink pop in general eat other garbage.

Worried about aspartame?  Try Zevia.  Organic and delicious.


7.  Scotch.

Insert Ron Burgandy quote here.

Low calorie (60/shot) and tasty.  Go with Glenfiddich.  Scrum-diddily-umptious.

Bonus!  On a cut, it won’t take you more than 2 shots to feel pretty damned good.


8.  Whole food protein.

No shakes on a cut.  The food fills you up way more.  Coupled with veggies, it’s your best bet to keep hunger at bay.


9.  Chili.

Following along?  Tomatoes, onions, and peppers are freebies.  Add in a pound of beef and chili seasoning, and you have roughly 90p/0c/45f in one, massive pot of goodness.

Author’s note:  Yes, I know there’s carbs in it.  But this is Anyman Fitness, not “Obsessive as Hell Fitness”.


10.  Nails.


Be strong.  Eat nails.  Take no prisoners.  Hit your macros.  Get your mindset right.
