Totals 1834cals 92f 23c 218p

I will be getting at least 100-110g fats in, keeping carbs under 20 (adding veggies) and getting protein down to 160-180 in feature days. I usually have 40g whey + cream in coffee on the mornings I workout, on non-workout days it stays as I stated above.

2-4 Optimum Whey
.5 tbsp CLA
Vit C 4-6g daily
Calcium 4g daily
Animal cuts in morning and after school

stats in sig.

Looks good to me, assuming your calories are set at the appropriate level. Although a protein blend might be a better choice, as opposed to the 100% whey, since you will be going ~3 hours without a whole food meal after your workout.

How many grams of CLA does .5 tbsp equal? I doubt you are going to get any benefit from the CLA, especially when following a CKD, since there would be a higher probability of the CLA being oxidized for energy. It is usually recommended that CLA be taken with a higher carb meal(s) in order to prevent this.
