U say leaning out not weight loss....! 6 meals 3 major 3 Minor Always do cardio after workout but not so heavy means only 25 or 30 min is enough because u do weight training before it. So ur carbs burn in weights training and its time to losses fat.. Its more effective experience says......... Vishantkumar2012@gmail.com

thanks for the reply,but i was more interested in the macronutrient ratio's.well i would never use the term "weight loss" becaus  there is difference between weight loss and fat loss..ie weightloss does not necessarily mean fatloss ,a persons weight can fluctuate due to many reasons ..weather,hydration level,loss of muscle mass etc but on the otherhand fat loss is whereby one losses fat gradually improving the bodys conditioning.

thanks and peace out bro

Hi Arihant,

The macros that one follows for cutting are usually 40-40-20 being 40% carbs, 40% protein and 20% fat. This ratio is suggested to most beginners. However I personally follow a 35-45-20 ratio myself. Personally I truly believe 4-5 meals a day are sufficient because eating also helps your body burn calories. Cardio output on the other hand should be as you deem necessary. For me during cutting, it is usually starts out at 3 days a week -Steady paced on the treadmill but increases to 6 days a week if I hit a plateau. 

Hope this helps!

I agree with puneet 40/40/20 is best ratio for lean out or for any competition. I m also follow this ratio.
