Figure I would post up and get some suggestions. Here is my diet, my goal is to shed some excess poundage..

2 whole eggs scrambled
1 cup oj
1 cup 2% milk

1 cup 2% milk
1 serving protein powder

2 slices whole wheat
1 serving natrual PB
1 serving unsweetened strawberry preserves
(PB&J Sandwhich)

1 Meal replacement bar

6:00pm (1 hour before workout)
1 cup 2% milk
1 serving protein powder

7-8 or 9 Gym/Training

Post Workout
1 cup 2% milk
1 serving protein powder

1 hour after workout (dinner)
Whatever is made or left over, usually something healthy
(Chicken, steak, rice, sweet potatoe, whole wheat pasta, oil, garlic, brocolli)

When I'm not working, I'm usually in the gym or sleeping.. I dont have time or the ability to re-heat at work, so prepared cold meals or MRP's are necessary at work. I have about 15lbs to drop, but I'm active so I need calories to repair.. Any mods/suggestions welcome.. I also do some moderate heart rate stuff whenever possible. Sometimes I wake up early, sometimes on weekends.. etc... thanks..

Enter an average day into Fitday and post your totalís.
Your stats will help also to give an approximate maintenance calorie level.

oh, sorry bout the stats..

24 years old
~15 lbs to drop

unsure if im a true mesomoprh or endomoprh.. I add muscle and drop fat quickly to a certain point and then it peaks and levels off.. If I had to pick one I would less extreme endomorph..

Enter your food into fitday so we know how much of each macronutrient you are getting.

From the looks of your diet, i would say not enuff vegetables and fibre and also not enough essential fats.

Ill do the breakdown for you guys tonight when I get home. I hate FitDay.. I know i need more veges. I'm hoping for a miracle vegetable supplement cause I just cant manage to get them down.. I HATE them..

More veggies, more fiber, more fat. Drop the juice. Without seeing the macro breakdown hard to give more advice, but it can use some help. MRP bars shouldn't be a daily thing unless you are making homemade ones.
