Why don't you try the "Get Shredded Diet" by John Berardi? There's a T-Nation article about it that lays it out pretty clearly. It's basically something like:
Calories = Bodyweight (lbs) x 10 which for you would be about 1750. You are allowed 10% + or -
Protein = 30% of your calories
Fats = 60% of your calories
Carbs = 10% of your calories and they should all come from veg, no starches or anything like that
supplement with creatine and BCAAs (2.5g and 5g respectively, four times a day). I think he recommends some Biotest fat burners - it is a T-Nation article after all - but I guess you could get some ephedrine or something if you wanted to go down that route. I'd personally just drink coffee (no sugar!).
there's probably more to it than that but that's the crux
Just read this. That's actually very similar to what i'll be doing. Basically, I read Engineering the Alpha by John Romaniello. He's another proponent of IF, the 16/8, which is what lead me to it, really. That, and a whole book about naturally increasing T-levels seemed right up my street. Very easy/entertaining read as well.
Anyway he splits training into phases and each phase is geared towards optimising a different hormone. So for example when GH is the focus they use loads of short rest periods because that's been showin to boost GH. Stuff like that. Basically using everything at your disposal that "might" help with whatever hormone you're trying to optimise.
I'm not doing it exactly as written. I may not do the training as written at all, actually - obviously i have my own goals in terms of powerlifting. But I want to give the diet approach a shot. It's easy to fit into what I already do and it's consistent with a lot of stuff i've read elsewhere. The "insulin reset" for phase one is very similar to what you just outlined. It's also very similar to what Bio Sig stuff recommends to "fix" you when blood sugar/insulin is flagged up as a problem (btw, our new gym owners are making us all learn biosig)
