I'd avoid rice krispies and go with something more like Fiber One. A favorite of mine was once Fiber One + Skim + blueberries. Good stuff.

Do you gain weight easily? Lose fat quickly? Is it just hard to gain weight? It's hard to recommend much without knowing much about how you gain/lose.

I'd add some oatmeal in meal one. Not enough calories or carbs when you wake up. Where are the fruits and vegies?

Don't use a protein shake as a meal replacement. YOu still need real food. Bump up your morning and lunch carbs.

i usually eat a bowl of cheerios and 1/4 cup of quickoats for my breakfast.. i know that's hardly any calories but im on a cut.. that's around 270 calories.. what's the importance of fruits and vegetables?? i thought if ur taking in a multivitamin u'll be fine.. isn't the fructose in fruits somethin u might want to stay away from?? the only thing i can think that's good for vegetables is that it's has a crap load of fiber and most veggies are around 20-30 on the gi index.. is there anything else that fruits and veggies can benefit someone during a cut?

Multi-vitamins are good to take, but you end up pissing out a lot of it. Fruits are one of the best sources of vitamins there are. Same can be said for the vegies, along with the fiber.

You need more fat. I can hardly see any in that diet.

Special KŪ low carb lifestyle cereal is pretty good for breakfast it has 10grams of protein and only a 100 calories.
