what I would try and do, and have done, is if you want to cut some fat, gear your diet without considering BJJ training. So if a normal cut diet consists of 2500ish cal then eat that. Now, have a shake with a average amount of protein and a good amount of carbs for during your training sessions. This will be added to your cut diet for your training days and should only be taken on training days. If you start gaining weight cut down a little on the "training shake" carbs.
So read the cut stickies and make a diet based on that. Then add a shake to that diet for when you train.
Remember consistency is the key for knowing how your body responds to a diet.
