How come Cyborg is so reluctant to cut to 135?  Do you think it's more fair for her and Ronda to fight at a catchweight of 140?

What macro-nutrient ratio do you recommend during a cut? What ratio for gaining muscle?

What formula do you use for calculating daily caloric needs?

Thoughts on intermittent fasting? (Something like 16 hours fasted, 8 hours feeding)

Thoughts on carb backloading?

Thoughts on keto diets for athletes?

thanks for doing this Mike!

thoughts on Carb Back Loading by Kiefer?

When your website was fairly new, you offered, for a premium of course, custom nutrition planning for the average joe/non-pro athlete. Assuming you are not still offering this, due to time restraints, is there any reasonable substitute you can recommend?

How do you manage macronutrient combinations for any athlete who is cutting (well in advance of competition?)  Do you follow any basic split - like 40/30/30?  Or do you customize your nutrition plan?

 

What supplements do you feel are essential?  Which ones do you use personally?

 

How do your athletes cut so much weight and then regain it prior to competition without ill effects?  What is in the post-weigh in rehydration?

 Are you utilizing large water consumption followed by a tapering off 2-3 days out?  Or is it something different than a water-weight cut?

Any literature you would recommend nutrition-wise?

And how'd you become the "weight cut guru?"

Thanks!

Have seen you ask this question a few times... You got me intrigued, hope Dolce has sum sound insight!


Mike,

Thoughts on best time to do Cardio, before or after Lifting Weights...Have heard different opinions on what's ideal, I drink a Product called Recoup(recovery stuff, amino's n B's) while lifting and then while doing cardio after I lift. But had someone say I should not do cardio after lifting and immediately consume protein (which I do right after lifting n cardio) and rest, but also had someone tell me its fine especially cause im drinking the recoup (not completely starving the freshly pumped guns..lol) what would you recommend for someone who started at 235lb is down to 220 in about 5 weeks of no mayo, no butter, no sugar and gym 6 days a week(chest/tri, back/bi, legs/shoulders) want to get to 205, then bulk back up with muscle... Lifting for about an hour then cardio for the same... mostly ride bike but do 55min and usually burn about 500-550 calories...fluctuate from level 10 to 12 and never let my RPM's get below 100.

Thoughts or Recommendations on cardio, food and supplements?

Thanks for your help... Really appreciate the advice!

A few questions for you, Mike -

 

1- I've noticed my Metabolism slowing down some. Not much, but it is noticeable - I'm mid-30's now. Is there a way to combat this? I once had a light-speed metabolism and miss it, lol.

2 -Do you have a recipie book that you like to use? How about a recipe book of "quick meals", or meals that are quick and easy to prepare/

3- If you could only eat 5 items per day for the rest of your life, what 5 foods would you eat?

4- Do you still offer a t-shirt for leaving a review of your book? If so, how does one go about getting the shirt? Just curious, thanks!

 

Thanks, Mike

Someone sent me a video of Greg Jackson pimping it hard, saying his athletes follow the plan but I had never heard of it before (or GJ talking about it). Dolce and Rush are the two gurus I am most familiar with so I'm trying to get the 4-1-1 from Mike:)
