1,000 calories sound like a lot, but I was in a mass gaining phase. So I figure, 300-500 put me at a surplus, then he took away about 500-700 from my metabolic baseline. I was 231 pounds to start the cut, so he wanted me to lose around 1.5-2 pounds a week. So I feel like the calorie cut was good. My strength didn't even feel like it went down. I don't feel moody, and my overall health is very good.
Layne doesn't make me take any supplements. He "recommends" some, but he doesn't say what I HAVE to take. I'm pretty sure its a liability issue.
I really don't take that many supplements. Do you think I take a lot next to a prep such as turks? I'll list them off again just to make sure were on the same page.
