This is close to what I will be eating on training days. I've lowered my carbs to around 150g and upped my fat to around 50g. How does it look?

Meal 1: 2/3 cup Dry Oats (175,40,6,1)
1 tbsp Peanut Butter (100,2,4,8)
2 scp Protein Powder (115,4,20,2)

Calories = 390
Carbs = 46g
Protein = 30g
Fat = 11g

Meal 2 (pre-WO): 4oz. Chicken (185,0,33,5)
2 Whole Eggs (150,2,14,10)
1 tsp Peanut Butter (50,1,2,4)

Calories = 385
Carbs = 3g
Protein = 49g
Fat = 19g


Meal 3 (post-WO): 1 Myoplex (280,24,42,2)
1 1/2 cup Milk (135,20,11,1)
1 Banana 8'' (125,32,1,1)

Calories = 540
Carbs = 76g
Protein = 54g
Fat = 4g

Meal 4: 100g cooked Pasta (128,26,5,1)
4 oz. Chicken (185,0,33,5)

Calories = 313
Carbs = 26g

1 Whole Egg (75,1,7,5)

Calories = 175
Carbs = 1g

Meal 6 (before bed): 100g Turkey Breast (110,0,24,2)
Calories = 110

Today's Totals:

The diet looks real good from my stand point. Why are you lowering the carbs are you trying to cut? I Keep mine that low to cut that is why i am asking.

I hope you work your way down in cals towards that.

I don't know your stats so i can't make a proper evaluation, but that seems like a very low calorie diet. I would personally say only go down that low for the last two weeks maybe?

Rememeber to gradually make your way down in calories.

You realize that when you cut carbs as a calorie source you have to introduce them back gently to your program when going through a transition period.

So you guys know, I currently weigh 168 and have been dieting at around 2000 kcal for about 8 weeks now. Before I had my carbs at around 200g, and fat at around 25g.

And yes I'm currently cutting.

Mac, when you say transition stage, do you mean when I decide to finish cutting, and decide to start raising my cals to maintain or bulk?
