Cut Like Cutler Supplement Guide

In an ideal world, you could get everything you need from diet alone. While supplements aren’t a necessity, you might see better results faster by filling in the gaps left by your diet.

Check out Cutler’s recommendations for supplement timing during the 12 week Cut Like Cutler program.

Daily Supplement Intake

As a general guidline, you can take the following supplements daily:

Morning: Take a good sport multivitamin and EFA supplement (like fish oil) for optimal health and wellness.

Workout Days

On workout days, you can take a pre-workout for a workout boost. Stack it with a BCAA powder for improved muscle recovery and growth.

Within 30 minutes of completing your workout, be sure to take a serving whey protein or mass gainer (depending on calories) mixed with water.

This diet is kind of confusing, but there are extra things mentioned in the list that are not in the sample meal. So how would one know where to fit this in to the meal plans and of how much. Yogurt was one of them, cottage cheese is another unsalted nuts rice cakes, Ezekiel bread. Need to be more specific especially for someone starting out and trying to eat the correct way. Thanks! :)

Hey Tim,
The Sample Meal Plan is just meant to give an example of what one day of eating might look like. You wouldn't eat those exact foods every day of the week, and that's when the other items on the list come into play.
You always need to be able to customize any meal plan to meet your specific calorie/macro/lifestyle goals. The Cutler team is just suggesting a list of items that can be purchased for $100/wk and are appropriate for someone trying to build muscle and lose fat.
