I started lifting in January and I've gradually adjusted my diet to look like this:

Early Morning- 2/3 of protein shake (in skim milk and water)

Mid Morning- 4 egg whites, 2 slices whole wheat toast, cereal, skim milk (1 cup)

Lunch- 2 grilled chicken breasts, rice (1 cup), veggies, yogurt (6 oz.)

Mid Afternoon- Protein shake w/ skim milk (1 cup) and water

Dinner- Either 2 chicken breasts with rice and veggies or steak, rice and veggies.

Before Bed- 1/3 of protein shake I didn't finish in the morning.


My goal is to, ofcourse, build more muscle but at the same time I want to get rid of the fat around my mid-section.

Do you think I'm eating too much?:confused:

I definitely see progress in building muscle but no luck with my stomach. Any recommendations? I'm getting very discouraged...

i don't think you are eating enough fat (EFAs)

what do you mean "no luck with your stomach" ? are u concerned that you are building muscle and not simultaneously cutting up?

What do you recommend I add to my diet to include more EFA's?

To clarify what I meant by "no luck with my stomach", I see changes in every body part except my stomach. All I see is a layer of blob!:cry:

fish oil for starters
olive oil
pb
nuts
....and coconut oil if you can find/afford it

don't be afraid of fat. the good stuff only helps you.

and - if you are seeing progress, count your blessings. things don't change overnight and i think it is easier to focus on either gaining muscle OR losing fat --- although there are a few on the boards who are blessed with incredible genetics and can do both at once.

more carbs in the meal early in the morning (unless the protein shake has carbs)

mid-morning, lose the cereal, have some oatmeal :)

at lunch, make sure the yogurt is plain yogurt, not flavored

and more EFA's
