cinnamon toast crunch has alot of sugar.. not really what you want if your cutting..
try to get the sandwich on 100%wheat bread if your not already doing so
and try to replace the juice with water

Totally lacking in EFA's. Snack is tuna or carrots? Carrots don't have any protien. How about both?

where's the fat? throw in a some almonds or walnuts as a snack, or even sunflower seeds. maybe fish that are high in omega 3's and 6's for dinner like salmon, mackerel, herring or tuna. flaxseed oil pills, cla, or ala might help you out also. flaxseed would be the best, as you need a lot of cla (upwards of 10g) a day to see anything happen, and i haven't heard a whole lot on positive results from taking ala. but you gotta get the EFA's in somehow. and when i mean fat, keep it clean! but you already knew that...

ala is NOT a fat source. cla should not be used as a fat source.
fish oil is a better source for essential fats than flaxseed but either one is necessary in your diet.
And with the carrots OR tuna thing. The nutritional content of those two foods is really different. Just have some of both. Cinnamon toast crunch is LOADED with sugar too, but if you have to have it, your eating it at the best time, in the morning.

Alpha Lipoic Acid and Conjugated Linoleic Acid. CLA is said to help decrease body fat and increase lean muslce mass. ALA is said to aid vitamins in their anti-oxidant activities, so it serves as a metabolic anti-oxidant. Don't really worry about 'em. raniali is right, i just didn't specify, u gotta get ur EFA's mainly from food.
