    175 Recipes for cutting (40/40/20 c/p/f ratio)

    Here are 175 healthy recipes (and 70 extra ones in some cases) from In2Nutrition (Discovery Health National Body Challenge diet site) calibrated for males and females trying to lose fat. Meals are pretty close to a C/P/F ratio of 40/40/20, easy to prepare in around 5-20 minutes, and generally pretty tasty. Each recipe is one serving. If you go with 6 meals a day from these recipes (ignore the 5 meals/day meal plan listings...the I2N meal planner only lets you set up 5 meals a day), you'll be good to go on balanced meals.

    I found the recipes very useful when I was first starting out and still a newbie to reading labels and tracking nutrients. This made meal planning a no-brainer. ;)

    Just make sure you check your BMR and cutting calorie range before you pick out which recipe file to use. :) Males should NOT be using the 200-240 calorie recipes for women. Women trying to gain can probably go with the 2000 calorie/day set. If anyone wants me to recalibrate the recipes with other ratios to suit your goals (bulking, more carbs, less carbs, etc.), let me know. These should be pretty good baselines for most people trying to lose fat in combination with resistance training and cardio.

    **NOTE: I do not recommend the bar recipes in the PDF files below. If you want to make your own cheap but tasty meal replacement bars, please check out my Homemade Protein Bars thread.

    **NOTE 2: A BFL buddy of mine noticed an error in one of the recipes in the batch of 70 extra recipes I posted with some of the base sets, "String Cheese and Apples". For some reason, the system thinks one medium apple = 6 g carb, and wiill therefore tell you to have 3.5 apples with your string cheese if you are using the 1400 calorie recipe set. I couldn't find a way to manually edit this, so please use common sense and just have one apple, folks. ;)

    Could you use these recipes if you were bulking up too?

    It'd be AWESOME if you could..

    Yes, you could use the recipes for bulking, but you'd need to adjust for your bulking calorie range. 1400, 2000, and 2400 are probably too low for most males to bulk. You can either double the portions of the 1400 menu if your bulking range is around 3000 calories, or I can post a 3500 calorie version of the menu later today.

    Just added a 2800 calorie 40/40/20 version for maintenance/bulking, and a 2000 calories 20/60/20 (c/p/f) version for low carbers. If your range is a bit higher than what I have, you can always double the portions in the lower calorie files. :)

    I've added a new version of the recipe file, this time with a 33/33/33 ratio as requested by Ansett with meals averaging 450 calories each. I've also added 70 more recipes in the "extra" files beneath the links for the main recipe files, bringing the total up to 245 recipes. The list of recipes has been updated with the new additions.
