Hello, i'm new here and this will be my first post. I need some help with a new diet i am elaborating.
Brief intro: been exercising for 1 year, went from 125 to 159 lbs (stats as for december). However, most of this was fat because of the last diet that included a lot of fat and i did cheat a lot eating saturated fat products (i wasn't informed about the types of fat) :idea: , it gave me 22% of BF. I dropped that diet and started doing cardio since january and went to 145 lbs and 20% BF.

My goal is to bulk to 170 lbs with a clean diet and then cut to 160 lbs and lower the BF. I have elaborated this new diet, i don't want to make the same mistake again with the fats so i want your opinion on the diet. I also would like to know how to organize the times of each meal, i will give you the meals details and an outline of my time so you can help me organize each meal according to my schedule.

6 meals of 2500 cals total. Ratio: 50c/30p/20f

Meal 1 (breakfast):
- 4 egg whites
- 1 nonfat yogurt
- 1 medium sized apple
- 1 natural cheese slice

Meal 2:
- 2 turkey ham sandwiches
- 1 glass of skim milk

Meal 3:
- 6 oz of chicken breast
- salad
- 2 glasses of grapefuit juice

meal 3 alternative

- pasta with tomatoe sauce
- cottage cheese or parmesan cheese
- 1 glass of lemon juice

meal 3 alternative

- 2 beaf steaks
- broccoli
- 2 glasses of orange juice

Meal 4:
- 1 cup of skim milk
- oatmeal
- 1 serving of whey protein

Meal 5:
- 1 can of sardines in water
- corn
- 2 pinneaple slices

meal 5 alternative
- salmon
- 5 pineapple slices

meal 5 alternative
- rice and beans
- 2 pineapple slices

Meal 6:
- 1 glass of skim milk
- 1 large banana
- 1 tablespoon of honey
- 1 small tablespoon of flaxseed oil

So this is it, and this is my daily time schedule:

7:00am> breakfast
8:00am> gym
10:00am> meal
1:00pm> lunch
4:00pm> meal
5:30pm> go to study
7:00pm> (study 20 mins break) meal
9:00pm> come back home from studying
9:30pm> dinner

I appreaciate your help very much. Thanks a lot guys :D

You may need a bit more than 2500 cals to gain weight.

Meals 5 (except the one w/ salmon) and 6 don't have enough protein.

Other than that, looks good :thumbup:
