I need opinions on my cutting diet:
Morning:
2 scoops of whey proteine, 5g of creatine, 10g of glutamine, frozen fruit, blended with milk
Mid morning:
oatmeal
Noon:
rice, chicken or beef, veggies
Afternoon:
Apple
Dinner time:
cottage cheese + smoked fish (any kind)
Dinner:
Two chicken breasts + bit of rice
Night:
2 scoops of whey proteine, frozen fruit, blended with milk
peanuts
I am not looking to loose fat quick, but I wanna get down to %15BF for may. Right now I am at 25%BF according to a home scale. I don't know how accurate that is.

the only fat i see here is from peanuts

personally - i would cut some of the fruit out and replace it with fats

I would also get some protein in with your midmorning and afternoon meals.

Damn, I have a hard time drinking protein without the fruit...I'll have to work on that. Do you guys have any suggestions as to what I can replace the fruit with? I am really sick of drinking protein shakes, the fruit makes it taste so much better.
Maybe I can munch on some peanuts during the day?
Would yogurt do for the fats?

one serving of peanuts is enough
u need flax oil, fish liver oil, olive oil, nuts (peanuts are a legume), even avocados
do not rely on milk fats or meat fats

add stevia or other natural sweetner to the shake
even cinnamon helps a ton
or buy a different (more palatable) brand of whey

You mentioned olive oil. Does using olive oil for cooking in general count?
For example, I use olive oil with eggs, chicken, beef, pretty much most of my fat comes from it. I'll throw in butter on occassion as well.
The protein powder I buy already have sugar in it, and I can only stomach strawberry flavour. Would pure whey and fruit be good enough?

i would count oil used in cooking ( i use it daily to cook me eggs).
but you gotta get the other good EFAs in there - from flax and/or fish oils.

i personally think fruit should be limited on a cutting diet for 2 reasons: 1. it is a quick sugar liable to make you hungrier and 2. after training, this carb source replaces liver glycogen and not cellular stores you want it to go to
