I am 6' 170 lbs.

I am very thin througout my body but have a little stomach on me that I HATE. :swear:

I assume my body fat is around 14-17%. If I eat...

-68 g fat
-190-206 g protein
-1,800 cals per day

Do you think I will be on my way to losing a stomach? I love to eat wheat bread with peanut butter, and I think this isnt TERRIBLE for you, correct?

Thanks,
Gravej

It seems very hard to eat right being a teenager and not shopping for myself. So does this sample diet look good?

Breakfast:
3 Eggs, scrambled.
1 Wheat toast, 1 tbsp pb

Snack:
Apple

Lunch:
1 Canned Tuna Fish, 2 tbsp mircle whip :( {is it THAT BAD}?
1 What bread, 1 tbsp pb

Snack:
Apple/Bannana

Dinner:
What ever the family has, usually healthy chicken or meat or some sort.

I include 1 scoop of Whey Protein after I workout in a glass of water.

I drink A LOT of water throughout the day.

Basically what I am asking is if I stick to this diet do you think I can lose the extra baby fat in my stomach?

-68 g fat
-190-206 g protein
-1,800 cals per day

Eat 1800 calories per day and tell us what happens after a few weeks. Only you can figure out what your maintenance level of calories is. 1800 calories is not much for a growing person though.

1800 cals is way too low,so is 2000. You are 17. Eat big and at your age with natural test flowing, you will partition better and put on muscle.

Once your chest,back,shoulders,legs develop, your stomach will look flat in comparison.

Protein level is fine. I would up the fats to 80-90 (easy way to get cals)

As I said in your breakfast post, aim for 3000 cals.

200g protein
85g fat
360g carbs

I should have mentioned this earlier, but you should slowly ramp up to the 3000 cals or so.

Since you have been eatin 2k cals. Ramp up to 2200 cals over 7-10 days. Then up to 2400 cals over 7-10 days. Then 2750 cals over 7-10, then finally 3000 cals.

So it should be 3-5 week progression before you hit the 3000 cals.

The best way to prob approach is make the increase each time with carbs.
