Haven't changed it so far, only a few minor adjustments here and there, like high carb days every 4-5 days, depending on how I look and feel. (I use the carb cycling method)
Looking very good tkd! Those capped shoulders and the tricep! Maybe some more bicep needed? Typical ectomorph?
I don't know why you need to diet for so long. That is for guys who start at 25% bf!
Don't waste away all your hard earned muscle!
Also when do you train, you always seem to be busy on the forums? Good work!
I wanted to diet for this many weeks, and I want to continue (want to learn via trial and error), to see how much it takes to be in actual contest condition. Or at least very close to it. 5-6% would be my goal.
Since summer 2012, late August or so, I've been on a cleaner diet, maintaining mostly. Under 10% is what I want and was, all year round.
I train early in the morning, at 8 AM. 1 hour of weight training and 30 mins of cardio, and after that I have, or I make time for studying, posting..etc.
Now I'm off to bed. Almost midnight here.
About my training? I train early in the morning, 4/5 days per week, with 30 mins of cardio after. High intensity, supersets/dropsets, rest between the sets very short, like 20-30 seconds, medium to lighter weights, slow negative, control and squeeze, kinda like Kai in those "Train with Kai" contests and videos from Mike Pulcinella. Speaking of Kai, believe it or not, I've learned a lot from his videos, motivational speeches ..etc. I remember when I was a douchebag saying negative things about him, and had that conflict with BigBen - which btw I've apologied to him - and now I see things more clear. So yeah, training wise I was inspired by his way of lifting, literally not giving a fuk about the weights used anymore, and the mind-muscle connection is better than ever, without smoking weed like dilatedmuscle haha.

The diet was a challenge for me, and like I said I wanted to get in a better shape than I ever was. Since 2011 I kept 10-11% bf all year round, and now I wanted to beat that. I actually look bigger, and better with keeping a low bf and training wise. No injuries at all, and joints are feeling great.
Last year @ August, I've dieted for 8 weeks, and that was the max I could do. Mentally I could not do 1 day more lol. Now I've challenged myself to beat that 8 week mark, and to control my diet better, my appetite, cravings etc, and I think with everything I've learned so far it helped me a lot. - Mind is everything, right? I love that quote.
