Ok, trying to get the cutting diet in place again (been trying to follow the last one I had made and found it impossible (busy/injuried self (ok, that was just an excuse to eat bad)).. but this time I'm going to follow it. Tell me what you think, any suggestions you might have/changes you'd make.. etc.

Meal 1:
2 scrambled eggs
2 slices of whole wheat bread
2 tbsp. natty peanut butter

Meal 2:
canned tuna
**not sure if I'm going to be able to stomach this yet. we'll see

Meal 3
chicken breast

Meal 4
ice cream (1 cup)

Meal 5
chicken breast
whole wheat bread (2 slices)

Now, this all adds up to about 1800 cals with a 210p/61f/106c ratio (or 47/31/24). Is this good? I think I need more calories, but I'm not sure where I can get them, what kind they should be.. and also, if meal 3 is preworkout, shouldn't I have some sorta carb in there? Should I toss the bread on that meal and the lettuce on the last? Is that too much fat/not enough (I know the body needs fat.. but it's hard to get over the whole "Fat is bad" training I've endured since I was a kid.. Same way I suppose it was hard to get over the fact you aren't suppose to spend everyday in the gym).

Oh yeah, 5'11, appx 170 (gym got rid of the scales, haven't been able to weight myself lately).

Looks OK to me. A little more cals, from fat or carbs, might be OK.
