Hey can you see if my diet is ok. My goal is to lose weight and gain strength for wrestling, and I plan to loose about 50 lbs by winter.

11:00 AM (Breakfast)

Fish Oil x1
Oatmeal Packet x2
-Cals = 330
-From Fat = 30
-Protein = 10g

2:00 PM (Snack)

1 Cup Cottage Cheese
-Cals = 200
-From Fat = 40
-Protein = 28g

4:00 PM (Lunch)

Fish Oil x1
Can of Tuna x2
-Cals = 360
-From Fat = 60
-Protein = 75

7:00 PM (Post-Workout)

Protein Bar x1
-Cals = 280
-From Fat = 30
-Protein = 30g

10:00 PM (Dinner)

Fish Oil x1
Chicken Breast x2 (12oz)
-Cals = 310
-From Fat = 30
-Protein = 70g

1:00 AM (Snack)

1 Cup Cottage Cheese
-Cals = 200
-From Fat = 40
-Protein = 28g

2:30 AM (Pre-Sleep)

Protein Bar x1
-Cals = 280
-From Fat = 30
-Protein = 30g

Total Cals = 1960
From Fat = 260
Protein = 271g

Do I have it all wrong? According to some articles it says I should be eating 3570 Calories a day :confused:, but that seems hard. (I weigh 238)

Also I'll be doing the wbb routine + 30 mins of cardio on days I workout.

I also have some questions.. do I eat the same amount on days I don't workout as well? And would I loose strength if I do this?

All input is appreciated.

I cycle my cals and my carbs. You can have a look at how I do it - it's in my sig.

These cals look LOW to me. Do you know what your maintenance cals are?

Oh, and why are you only tracking protein and fat? Carbs are interesting, too.

Just a few things

Get some protein in there for breakfast
Oatmeal packet-- crap-- just buy some real oats, cheaper and healthier
Protein bar--- crap--- down a whey shake right after your workout much better for you
Very few carbs, It's going to be hard to have the energy for a hard workout

Sorry this is a short reply

Cycle?
Maintenance?

Take alook around for finding out your caloritic maintenance and all that fun stuff.
Also get rid of that pre packaged protein bar and start making your own!!

HanhB got me on those and I dont see me turning back anytime soon! excellent source of calories. Since you are trying to lose weight (I assume) you can tweak that recipe any which way you want. Thats after you learn what your maint. calories are.
Goodluck!

I alternate between higher and lower carb days, depending on my training. I target my carbs around my lifts.

Maintenance cals are the cals your body requires to neither lose nor gain. Track your food for a few days on www.fitday.com to get an estimate.

Not sure if this is good but, depending if I workout that day or not, determines when I eat my carbs. If on a workout day I eat almost all my carbs around my workout and if not a workout day I just eat them through out the day=)
