Mark's kitchen: What am I eating?

Hey there, this post is to give you guys a better understanding of what I am currently eating in my cutting phase. I try to vary the foods that I eat to make sure I cover both my macro and micro nutrient requirements. (plus it can get quite monotonous eating the same thing everyday!) 

What can I use to make the food taste better?
Garlic, onions, chilli, salt, pepper and vinegar


I think I undercooked the steak lol

Roasted beetroots. Yum!

Can't go wrong with fish

Tastes as good as it looks  (haha)

I also made a quick decision to drop my carbohydrates again. Why? I tend to have a spill over affect from my cheat meals on the weekend. Oops! This is what I am doing now (see below).

Quick update

Hey hey! It has been 2 weeks since commencing my cutting phase. I am pretty happy with how it's going so far. I have decided to taper off my carbohydrates gradually this time (as opposed to drastically dropping them).

Current macros:
  240/240/60

Total calories:
~2500

I haven't been able to train as hard as I would like for the past 2 months due to a shoulder injury. I am currently trying to fit in at least 3 sessions per week of shoulder rehab work to speed up the recovery process. More information on the cut coming soon.
