View Full Version : Evaluate This Cutting Diet

01-27-2004, 09:17 PM
Hi, I introduced myself in my previous post - basically, I'm 17yr old male, looking to lose 5-10lb of bodyfat over the next couple months. I've never really followed a diet I just always bulked (ate what i wanted, lots of protien, lots of junk food too, worked out a lot) now i'd like to lean down for spring break and summer..i currently see 2 abs when i flex and none relaxed..my goal is to see 2-4 abs without flexing in a couple months and by summer time have a nice 6 pack when relaxed if possible...anyways, here the diet I came up with by researching on my own:

7AM Protein Shake, Banana w/glutamine
10:00AM Protein Bar, Banana
12:45PM Ham sandwich on whole grain bread
3:45PM Salad with some ham
5:00PM (post workout) Protein Shake w/glutamine, banana
7:00PM Chicken / Fish / Beef with light veggies, flax seed oil
10:00PM Protein Bar w/glutamine, flax seed oil

5g of Glutamine upon waking, post workout, before bed
Need 20g of fiber green veggies, whole grain bread, etc, etc
205g of Protein + 15g glutamine = 220g total protein
165g of Carbs from whole grain bread & vegetables
73g of Fats flax seed oil
~2200 calories

1 1.5 gal of water

I plan on using the WBB #1 workout and doing cardio 3 days a week (non workout days).

Please give me any tips or advice on what I should do - I really don't know much about this stuff at all. Thanks so much!

BTW I'm around 185-190lb with 15-20% bodyfat (I estimate)

My 1RM bench is around 230-240.

Id eat more chicken, tuna, eggs, egg whites,brown rice,potatoes,fish,salads,veggies,oatmeal,yams,etc. I know you are young and live at home but you have too many calorie dense protein bars in your diet as well as ham which is not a great "clean" source of protein.Instead of buying glutamione,and flax oil buy chicken breasts and eggs .You`ll make much better progress this way.I`m not trying to discourage you but your diet isn`t all that great for cutting and retaining muscle tissue.

thanks for the comment..how about this:

7AM - Protein shake (powder, egg white, banana), oatmeal
10AM - Protein bar (I have no choice, I am in school, cant cook)
12:45PM - 2 chicken breasts, salad no dressing
3:45PM - 1 large can of tuna or 1 chicken breast, brown rice
5PM (post workout) - protein powder in orange juice
7PM - 2 chicken breasts, 2 steaks or 2 fish fillet, a little brown rice
10PM - 1 chicken breast

water for all drinks, very light or no sauces on the meat, all lean cut

fats will come from the oils in cooking the meat

does that sound good?

hmm the fat is really low in that..i'll add a tbsp of flax seed oil to all the meals with meat?
