Right now I'm 200lbs, 6'1", and about 15 or 16% bf. My goal is about 180 lbs., 10% bf by August. Any help on my diet is greatly appreciated.

Meal #1 at 6:30 a.m.

4 Egg Whites
1 Egg Yolk
1 Oatmeal Packet

Meal #2 at 8:30 a.m.

Homemade Protien Bar


Meal #3 at 11:00 a.m.

2 Slices Wheat Bread
Turkey or Tuna or Chicken


Meal #4 at 2:30 p.m.

1 Scoop Whey
1/2 Cup of Cottage Cheese


Meal #5 at 6:00 p.m. (preworkout)

1 Slice Wheat Bread
1 tbls. Natty Peanut Butter


Meal #6 at 7:30 p.m. (postworkout)

1 Scoop Whey
1 Oatmeal Packet

Meal #7 at 9:00 p.m.
Various Veggies
Lean Meat


Sleep at 10:30


I breaks down to about 50% protein, 25% carbs, 25% fat, and 2000 cals. I plan on taking a multivitamin in the morning and either flax seed or fish oil. What is the difference between fish oil and flax seed? And does it matter when I take them?

It doesn't matter when you take your oils. Fish oil is mostly omega 3's and flax has omega 3's and 6's.

Up the fat in place of some of the protein.

trade olive oil for vegetable oil to start. try to get at least 20% of cals from fats. i don't think this diet will do it though

I changed the vege oil to olive. Why wont this diet cut it? They told me to put in more fats so I did that. What do you recommend I do?

It looks okay to me, especially for the early stages. You've got plenty of time. 10% will be a peice of cake from 15-16%. What kind of weight routine are you using, cardio?

I'm doing WBB#1 and I run for about 15 minutes 4-5 times a week.

The diet looks pretty good... I would just switch things up a little... I would remove the oatmeal POST-WO and just have a 2 scoop whey shake w/dextrose or another type of fast acting sugar...

other then that, you should be fine... mabye a few more carbs and protein PRE-WO instead of the PB...

It looks ok, but you seem to be relying on wheat breads for the majority of your carbs. Most commercial wheat breads are actually as bad as white bread, so be careful. If anything, you should replace wheat bread for wheat pita bread. Try to eat more pastas instead of breads and more veggies instead of fruits, also definitely look into adding some legumes/beans, and definitely add the flax and fishoils.

Meal #1 at 6:30 a.m.

4 Egg Whites
1 Egg Yolk
2 Slices Wheat Bread

I'd take at least 8 egg whites for breakfast or add one scoop whey.

Meal #4 at 2:30 p.m.

1 Scoop Whey
1 tbls. Olive Oil
1/2 Cup of Cottage Cheese

Why do you take whey on the middle of the day without training before? The function of whey protein is that it's within 45 minutes in your bloodcirculation. (if you take it in with water or sojamilk)

Meal #5 at 6:00 p.m. (preworkout)

2 Slices Wheat Bread

Why do you eat bread before working out? You train on the energy(glycogeen) you consumed the day before, you'd better eat the bread instead of a banana post workout.

P.S. what is wheat bread?

What does the protein do for me in the morning? You said below I should take it after workout. Does it restore it from the night or something?

I'm heading over to the pwo thread to see what that says, I haven't read it yet, but I always thought that you should have carbs before and after workout.

The bread is 100% whole wheat.

Id say so, tbh especially in the initial stages of your diet i'd keep things a little looser. Why put all your eggs in one basket?

Your going to lose fat no doubt about it, but if your too strict to begin with where do you go when fat loss slows down?

Leave options available to you, then week by week you can implement changes, that will keep your muscle tissue (as best you can) and lose fat at a constant rate.

I don't even know why hes cutting, I'm almost 6'1'' and 200 lbs is my ideal weight, I think 180 is still kind of skinny.
