Hi. So, today is officially the first day I had all my food planned out, and I stuck to it. The only point where I deviated, was I drank a half gallon of skim milk whereas I planned for about 5 cups! I feel like I need to drink more water, though.

Link to my diet for today! (http://www.fitday.com/webfit/publicjournals.html?Owner=Decker87&Year=2007&Month=7&Day=16)

Fat's a little low. How much do you weigh?

And you definately need to start eating some vegetables.

Looks pretty good, I agree with Bako, I am cutting on about 2,100 cals with almost the same amount of fat so I would up that possibly. Whats your weight and goals?

My main goal is to gain muscle. I would say for every 8 pounds I gain, I am fine with 1 pound of it being fat.

Do I really need more veggies!? I never really figured they were good for much, assuming you can get your vitamins and such elsewhere. What would you suggest?

Okay, I thought fat was only supposed to be around 30% of your calories...am I mistaken? I'll gladly eat more fat! I feel like im eating cotton balls!

Read some of the stickies, mainly regarding basing your diet on percentages.

Built cutting sticky is good.

I woke up this morning with some serious wood. As I stood in front of the mirror, I decided I may be happier if my goal were to overall become leaner. I would rather be skinnier and have more definition.

That said, what happens when you don't get enough fat? What if you get just enough Omega-3 (as in good fat) and no more fat at all, even with a ton of protein?

If you in a calorie deficit, you will lose weight.

I guess what I would really like to know is, will I lose a ton of muscle if I:
-Hit the gym hard
-Eat plenty of protein (1.5g or more per lb)
-Eat below maintenance calories
