I am currently 205 at about 15-16% body fat. I would like to cut down to 180 or 8% BF by the summer.

I work like 12 hours on many days as a trainer and sales rep at a local gym, plus i don't eat hardly any meat by choice. Do you think this is a good diet plan for me to start off with? I will also include 3 days of cardio every week.

My Cutting Meal Plan

Meal 1: 1 packet of Oatmeal w/ 1 cup milk - 186 cals 2g fat 31g carbs 12g protein

Meal 2: 1/2 serving of cytogainer w/ 1.5 cups milk - 438 cals 3g fat 58g carbs 40g protein

Meal 3: 2 scoops whey w/ 1.5 cups milk & 1 tbsp natty p-nut butter - 510 cals 20g fat 30g carbs 53g protein

Meal 4 (PWO) - 2.5 scoops whey w/ water & 1 slice of white bread - 310 cals 5g fat 20 carbs 42g protein

Meal 5 - 2 scoops whey w/ 1 cup milk & some water[/b] - 278 cals 3g fat 18g carbs 40g protein

Meal 6 (bedtime meal) - 2 scoops whey w/ 1 cups milk & some water & 1 tbsp natty peanut butter - 468 cal 19g fat 24g carbs 48g protein

TOTALS - 2189 cals 53g fat 180g carbs 235g protein

Fat: 23%
Carbs: 32%
Protein: 45%

Also, is scrambled eggs an ok thing to eat on a cut? I read that Arnold said that the yellow part of eggs is ok to eat and is actually good for you. So would scrambled eggs be ok?

Dont eat meat? Heretic!!!


hehe j/k

Couple things, your PWO "meal", get rid of the white bread and just throw some dextrose in the shake. If you really want those carbs. Personally i wouldnt have any carbs in my post workout shake if i were cutting. Let your body refill those muscles with hepatic glycogen, youll get to burning the fat that much quicker.

Eggs are good. If having a serving eggs on a cut, only eat 1 egg yolk at a time...the rest whites. The yolk helps with digestion and contains protein.

Lastly good luck with your morning crap man.....besides that oatmeal....you have like 0 fiber in your diet. lol. Throw some dark green veggies in their during the day, broccoli is great. Any fibrous veggie is gonna help you out, youll thank me in the morning hehe.

Macros look fine to me, I would start with a higher number of calories though, and then work your way down.

what's the point of the white bread? 100% whole wheat is a much much better choice. You're also getting a lot of sugar from all that milk. No meat or eggs!?!?!? It looks like a good start but I personally would substitute eggs in for the white bread or oats and use water in my shakes so that I could have solid food elsewhere and maybe just have milk with the before bedtime shake so it keeps you feeling full all night.
