Well I just started to cut and have decided I may as well see what needs changing in my diet so here it is. I have been testing out where my cal's need to be over the last couple of weeks for me to sustain a moderate weight loss and have come to the conclusion that between 2200 and 2300 is my best bet.

Baby Carrots are my snack during the day so I factored them in I just didn't place them in a meal.

My main concern is the how my cals are displaced through the day, I just wanted to see what peoples opinions are on where during the day they like to consume most of their cal's. Also I am going to try and up my protein by about 20g's its a bit lower than I like but I was running a tad high on cals that day so I laid off a bit.

Looks pretty good, actually. Maybe some broccoli, romaine...

What time of day do you train?

IF you workout at night make sure you get most of your days carbs right around workout. I eat mostly veggies during the day, then aobut 1.5hrs before workout I eat starchy carbs, then right before my workout i take in some more with a shake. After i eat some more (oats or something) and thats the majority of my carbs.

The rest of your diet looks pretty good (macro's etc). Eating veggies throughout the day is good hunger control.

Hmm yah I will try and move some of the cabs to a later time, I am still going to keep some in the morning since I enjoy that extra bit of energy to get the day started ect.

Whats your pre and whats your post workout meal??
If that shake at meal six is pwo id change the olive oil for more carbs and add more protein and fat meals during the day to make up for it.
