Okay, I've read numerouse articls about dieting. Just wanted to check with you all and see if my meal plan below is good for dieting.
Im 6'4 210lbs Been bulking for 6 weeks

Meal 1 8:00 AM - 2 Scoops of whey protien
Meal 2 10:00 AM - 2 Packages of oatmeal, banana, and 3 eggs with toast
Meal 3 12:00 PM - Sandwhich of sliced turkey with proviline cheese and 1 scoop of whey protien
Meal 4 3:00 PM - Tyson chicken, banana,
Meal 5 6:00 PM - Sliced roast beef sandwhich
Meal 6 8:00 PM - Tuna fish or sandwhich (turkey or roastbeef) with 2 scoops of whey protien

I have a few questions. I am intaking 5 scoops of whey protien is that too much ?
5 x 21 = 105 g of protien...bit much ?

I got alot of free time on my hands this summer so I was hoping to do this for cardio....
8:30 - 30 minutes after having the whey protien Jog for 1 hour
12:00 - Jump rope - Boxing practice
3:00 - After my gym routine, Ill do 1/2 n hour of the stair masterd and 1/2 n hour of jogging
8:00 Late night jogg for about 30 minutes
Now thats about 3 1/2 hours of cardio.... is this too much ?
Is there such a thing of too much cardio ?

Im wieghing 220lbs now, I want to loose about 20-25lbs
Im hoping Ill accomplsih that in 6 weeks, then -rebulk

Well, im eager to hear what you guys think... Thanks

you wanna lose 25 pounds in 6 weeks? thats 4 pounds a week?

with all that free time I recommend you just read thread after thread after thread in the diet/nutrition section going back the last 6 months...

what are the portion sizes? do you use a diet tracking tool like www.fitday.com? what is your average caloric intake?

If you want to lose that much weight in that much time, plan on losing some of the muscle you gained.

You'll most likely watch your muscles shrink daily doing that much cardio. I'm dropping fat like crazy using a diet structured like this: 264 g protein, carbs - 20g cardio only days, 180 g all within 2 hours of workout on lifting&cardio days, 60g fat. Cardio first thing in the morning, before protein shake. This works wonders for me.

Raven, take a look at my cutting diet, its in my journal, it would probably suit you pretty well. I'm 6'3" and started at 233 with the goal of losing the same amount of weight. However, realisticly I am aiming to lose that weight in 10-16 weeks, not 6. Adding lean muscle is tough and you don't want to shed it off just because you're in a hurry to get cut for summer. We waited too long to start our cuts so in turn you're just going to have to wait a little longer to lose that muscle.

LISTEN!! This is really imporant:
You aren't going to want to do more than 30 minutes of cardio maybe two days a week to start with. Then maybe move it to three as things progress. I know, its a lot less than you had in mind. But its the best piece of musle saving advice you can get besides keep lifting weights and eat lots of protein. Look at my diet and esercise and don't aim to lose much more than 2 pounds a week.
