How do I decide whether to purchase Mass or Cut?

That’s a very common question, our recommendation is:

1.) Are you over 15% (25% for females) fat with average genetics?

Cut first.

2.) Are you under 10% (15% for females) fat with average genetics?

Mass first.

3.) Somewhere between the two?

Your call. We tend to say when in doubt, cut and get leaner first before trying to gain weight. You can certainly still get stronger on the RP cutting templates (and likely gain some muscle if you’re new to the diet), so fat loss is usually the way to go for most people.

If you’re doing our premium 1:1 coaching services, you don’t need to decide cut v mass if you’re on the fence – your assigned coach will listen to your goals and help you choose a direction to go in.

Tell me more about RP’s 1:1 coaching

Thank you for your interest in our premier 1:1 diet and training coaching services!

We design custom diets based around your goals, schedule, and physical stats (weight, body comp, etc). We then use your feedback via 2x/week bodyweight updates to track and monitor your progress to ensure you stay on track towards reaching your goals. We’re there to answer questions, provide feedback, etc along the way throughout your coaching time with us.

The Renaissance Diet plans lay out a list of acceptable foods for each macronutrient (proteins, carbs, fats) as well as for a list of low carb veggie options. This allows the client the freedom to choose their favorite foods to help prevent boredom/burnout when it comes to dieting and eating the same things over and over.

Because each meal has multiple source options, choosing different foods yields slightly different calorie and macro amounts depending on choice. Peanut butter has extra protein, carbs, and calories that olive oil does not. This is why we do NOT lay out the total calories on a per day basis. These slight variances in food choices are already factored into the diet design created by us here at Renaissance Periodization.

We also lay out the macronutrient amounts on a PER MEAL basis based around the particular timing of your schedule. The coaching gets quite precise with the timing based around the information you provide to us in the questionnaire you fill out. It is for this reason that we suggest being as thorough as possible when filling out the questionnaire (the start up forms can be located on the contact page of our website).

Another great benefit of the diet coaching services is your ability to get our feedback as often as needed. We are happy to answer any and all questions you may have throughout the process. We also make all of the diet updates for you and use your feedback to guide this process to help ensure you stay on track towards reaching your stated goals.

Please check out our diet coaching services, we recommend the 3-month diet option as it is our most popular product!

Tell me more about RP’s auto diet templates

The Renaissance Automated Diet Templates lay out a list of acceptable foods for each macronutrient (proteins, carbs, fats) as well as for a list of low carb veggie options. This allows the client the freedom to choose their favorite foods to help prevent boredom/burnout when it comes to dieting and eating the same things over and over.

We also lay out the macronutrient amounts on a PER MEAL basis based around the particular timing of your schedule. The templates lay out different options for early AM training, late AM training, midday training, evening training and for your rest days.

Along with that, the templates also lay out the differences between light, moderate, and hard training days (as the amount of food you would eat on each day varies along with activity).

Because each meal has multiple source options, choosing different foods yields slightly different calorie and macro amounts depending on choice. Peanut butter has extra protein, carbs, and calories that olive oil does not. This is why we do NOT lay out the total calories on a per day basis. These slight variances in food choices are already factored into the diet design created by us here at Renaissance Periodization.

Our main product is the 1x/day templates that lays out your diet around 1 training session per day (as well as for rest days). We also have our combo package that includes 1x/day templates as well as training templates for 2x/day training.

The 2x/day templates are more advanced with new timing strategies for those athletes working out multiple times a day. These also include a new “fun” carb column that is based around the science of glycogen repletion. Dr. Jen Case has also attached a video and document going over glycogen repletion with the purchase of the 2x/day templates.
