I'm 5'9 235 and am currently trying to lose weight (10 pounds in a month, 35 pounds by end of year). I workout 5-6 days a week (lift 4 days, try to run 5 days a week cause I play Rugby). Usually only a quick mile before I lift.

Meal #1 ? 1 pm
1 whole eggs + 3 egg whites
4 oz. lean beef
1/2 cup oatmeal

426 cals 16/5 f, 14 c, 54 p

Meal #2 ? 3 pm
4 oz chicken breast
1 apple
1 slice of whole wheat bread

332 cals 6/1 f, 33 c, 37 p

Meal #3 ? 5pm
4 oz. chicken breast
1/2 cup cooked brown rice
1.5 cup vegetables

376 cals 5/1 f, 42 c, 38 p

Workout 6:30 pm to 8:00 pm

Meal #4 ? 8:30 pm
6 oz. lean beef
2 cups vegetables

471 cals 14/5 f, 26 c, 56 p

Meal #5 ? 10:30 pm
4 oz chicken breast
1 apple
1 slice of whole wheat bread

332 cals 6/1 f, 33 c, 37 p

Meal #6 ? 12:30 pm
1 whole eggs + 3 egg whites
4 oz. lean beef steak
1 cup vegetables

Bed - 2:30 am

419 cals 15/5 f, 14 c, 53 p

2356 cals 62/18 f, 162 c, 275 p

50% p, 25% c, 25% f

Is the proteins too high?? Should I adjust the ratio?? As you can tell I hate fish that's why there is none on my plans? Suggestions?!?! Also is eating every 2 hours too soon? It actually fits my schedule better.

why do you run before you lift....you're using up some of your glycogen stores running...and you're gonna need them to lift. How come you don't run after your workout....

I think that for fat loss...the best cardio is walking. Maybe for your rugby fitness training incorporate some HIIT.

I know I still haven't answered your question......sorry..

Increase carbs , there too low.

50% proteine is way too much , there not used , they will just leave your body trough natural ways (toilet).

Try 40/40/20 , thats good for cutting , you will definitly loose fat.

Im on 40/40/20 also for like 5 months and lost already 24pounds.

Just play a bit with the cals , some persons need slightly more then others.

I used to run after my workouts but as I kept going heavier in lifting, I was getting too tired to run afterwards. I guess I'll switch it back and maybe cut a few things out in my lifting routine. Unfortunately I have to run alot because Rugby is a very demanding endurance sport. Can anyone help me make a few adjustments on what I should take out and what I should add in?

P.S. What is HIIT?

more carbs.
i personally think that you dont need suck a great deal of protein and that there is too much emphasis on it. I would even possibly go to 30/50/20 - but that's me and pple would probably want blood from me over it since everyone is so pro protein as the main ingredient in muscle growth.

Dont be such a wimp and go running after you lift.
It is in your head that you are too tired - trust that your body can take it.
If you throw up, then this is good - keep trying and you'll improve.
Next time you will have more energy.
You gotta make yourself do it, it's not about whether you feel like it or not, if that were the case, i would never work out.

If you have to force yourself to go to the gym, then you are lifting for the wrong reasons.

Sometimes forcing yourself is what makes you stay on track.
