I just finished bulking where i put on 12 pounds and ~1% bf. right now weigh 172 at 14%. my goal now is to cut down a bit for summer and i am following a diet like this:

meal 1:
1.5 servings oatmeal
1 serving cottage cheese
1 scoop whey

meal 2:
sandwitch on whole wheat, either nat. PB or chicken
1/2 oz almonds
1 serving mozzarella cheese
apple sometimes

meal 3:
2 eggs or can of tuna

meal 4:
6 oz chicken or ground beef
1/2 - 3/4 cups rice or whole wheat pasta
vegetables

meal 5:
1 serving cottage cheese mixed with 1/2 scoop whey

i'm aiming for 2000-2100 calories at 40p/30c/30f.

i would appreciate any suggestions for improvement.

i count maybe 30 g of good EFAs at most with this diet. how are you getting 30% fat from this?

i think ur food choices look decent though. what do u eat after training?

i forgot to include a tablespoon of flax oil in meal 1.

after working out i have a protein shake and usually dinner or my last meal about 30 mins after that.

Looks clean. If you have rice, make it brown rice. Why not add a sweet potato in meal 2 instead of the mozzarella. Make sure your oatmeal is plain(no sugar etc), and the slow cooking kind preferably. Add another teaspoon of flax oil,-maybe in a salad, use olive oil for cooking, and try to limit your carb intake late in the day. Are you trying a CKD or something, try a search on this, theres a lot of info on this board. Drink lots of water. Hope this helps.:cool:

thanks for the suggestions. i do plan to try out a ckd again once exams are finished. i read up on it and tried it for a week last semester; i know a week isnt long enough to see any results but i was experiencing that mental "fog" and im not in a program where i can aford that.

Nice diet. Try to get more high GI carbs after workout.

Sorry, I didn't see the post where you said you had a protein shake after your workout :D. Anyways, that's a good diet :thumbup:

How does him having a protein shake have anything to do with high GI carbs?

gr390ry, try having some dextrose or maltodextrin after your workout along with the protein powder. Just protein powder alone is not a good idea.

Sorry, I posted without thinking. I was assuming he added dextrose or something to his protein shake.
