My 2014 cutting diet – detailed raw foods list
Before starting a cut or a bulk I have several rituals that I always follow. Proper diet is the most critical component of any successful fat loss program, and so it’s vitally important to spend some time planning out that aspect of your program. If you skip the crucial planning step you are setting yourself up to fail before you even begin.
What I always do is rough out my cutting menus, then stock up on many of the foods I’ll be consuming on my cut. As you can see here, I’ve made another big Costco trip and stocked up on many of the proteins I’ll be consuming. I also stock up on other foods that have a decently long shelf life.
The following foods are the basic building blocks of what will be my cutting diet. Some of these foods will be purchased fresh weekly, and are indicated as such. Everything else I’ve purchased in bulk.
60 pounds boneless/skinless chicken breast
12 pounds Atlantic salmon
12 pounds lean sirloin
8 pounds shrimp
60 5-ounce tins tuna in water
18.4 pounds Nitrean protein powder
Egg whites (fresh)
93% lean ground beef (fresh)
10 pounds almonds
5 pounds natural peanut butter
2 Liters extra virgin olive oil
10 pounds dry whole grain pasta
10 pounds dry whole grain rice
10 pounds raw oats
Red potatoes (fresh)
Salad greens (fresh)
Various stir fry veggies (fresh)
Green onions (fresh)
Greek yogurt (fresh)
Of course other foods will be utilized, but the above items will always be on-hand and will form the foundation of my cutting diet.
To drink? Water, protein shakes, black coffee and hot tea. That’s it.
