Hey folks - I had my *first* 2400cal (2500 for today), 25/25/50 diet (I guess this is correct - see the 300g of protien).

What I found:

It's hard as hell to eat THAT much tuna. I ate two BIG (12oz) cans of Tuna.


What can replace Tuna for extremly high protien / very little fat?


And I don't think the spicy chicken sandwich is the best, but they are friend in olive oil, so it can't be that bad. My friend says they are OK. I only ate the bread to bring my carbs up a bit.

It's a pain in the butt to copy/paste the Fitday Info.. so just click the link in my sig. The day to look for is JULY 9TH.


Anyway, here's the breakdown:

source grams cals %total
Total: 2497
Fat: 66 594 25%
Sat: 14 127 5%
Poly: 4 39 2%
Mono: 2 19 1%
Carbs: 160 580 24%
Fiber: 14 0 0%
Protein: 306 1222 51%
Alcohol: 0 0 0%


Ok.. so what do you guys think?

maybe get some better sources of fat. like some fish oils, flaxseed oil, etc.

also, the bread with the spicy chicken sandwich was probably pretty high on the GI.

some ideas for good sources of protein with little/no fat are: egg whites, chicken, turkey, whey, etc.

Is that "Arrowhead PB" natural?

Haha. I am gonna rule out whey because if I took out those two cans of tuna, I'd be eathing nothing.

I ate the bread because I wanted to fill in some calories.

Well there are plenty of low fat sources of protein such as poulty, lean cuts of beef/ground beef (90% lean or greater), egg whites.

Although you could use more n-3 fats in your diet so you might think about throwing in some salmon which is high in both protein and healtny fats. Canned chicken is also an option but it will be a little more expensive than canned tuna. I usually just cook up food a couple days in advance, and store it in the fridge.

More omega3s?

I thought peanut butter was n3?

Some foods that are high in Omega-3s are fish, olive oil, flax supplements as well as fish oil supplements, and, I believe, PB as well.

Olive oil is a good source of monounsaturated fat (oleic acid), but does not contain much in the way of EFAs. Peanut butter contains mostly monounsaturated fat and some n-6 fats.
