I've been trying to knock off some BF so I'm gonna start a mini cutting diet.


I was eating about 2000-2200 caloried per day and gaining weight fast.

I went from 152-168 over a few months.

Here is my blueprint for the new diet


Meal 1: Cereal or oatmeal & one cup of milk

Meal 2: Protein Shake

Meal 3: One can of Tuna & two pieces of ww bread

Meal 4: Pre workout shake & 2 Tbs natty p-nut butter

Meal 5: Post workout shake & one cup milk

Meal 6: Tilapia fillet with one cup veggies(green beans, broccoli, ect)

Meal 7: Protein shake b4 bed & one cup milk

Any snack: natty p-nut butter w/ low fat grahm cracker


Usually it's around 1700 calories. 170-180g protein 130-140 Carbs & 45-50g fat

How does it look?

dun have much time right now, biggest problem i see is the milk with the post w/o shake, you want carbs ( dex) and protein ( whey ), NO fat.. this will slow absorbtion of the whey, therefor defeating the purpose of taking the shake :)

Okay, skippin first class :P so i got sum time now.. This is all IMO sooo, others may have different :)

Meal1 - Looks alright, assuming the cereal is of a decent brand, what would it be? But stick to oatmeal as much as possible :)

Meal 2 - Im assuming your @ school or sumthing when you take the shake? if not then replace it with whole food IMO. Maybe have 5 egg whites and 1/3 cup oatmeal there.

Meal 3 - just watch the ingredients on the bread.

Meal 4 - Good IMO, since the fat is pre workout i don't see a problem with it, not sure tho.

Meal 5 - lose the milk as i stated before.

Meal 6 - Good Meal :)

Meal 7 - i'd replace this meal with cottage cheese, and a fat source such as fish oil/olive oil/ natty pb.


Hope i could of been of some assistance :)

I think taking the whey with milk is not a problem post workout as you have a pre workout shake, but I agree if possible to replace the other shake with whole foods. The other thing, like defcon said, is the cereal, stick to oats if possible :) And get some EFAs in there.

I think that shake in the morning is fine. And you should drop some more protein in with that milk in the first meal. 'Tis not a big deal if it's a shake or whole food. I've cut on 70% liquid, 30% chicken, and it worked the same.

I'm not saying it will make a big difference in terms of cutting, but whole foods contain things like fiber, vitamins and minerals that shakes do not.

Plus 300 cals from oatmeal and tuna will make you feel fuller longer then a shake :) and taste 10000000% better :)
