Please tell me what you think about the contents of the diet.....thanks. I guess I'll be aiming for around a 45/25/30 pcf ratio?

    I think that this is alot of food. And especially alot of whey. You could stand to drop some of it. Also if you are cutting try to space meals out to about 3hrs. I know that the more meals you eat is better but I think that you could drop one of the meals. Protein is good but to much will still make you add cals at the end of the day. You seem to be getting enough protein throughout the day without all that whey added. I think that you are cutting but this diet looks like a bulking diet.
    Notes are in Quote and are beside stars (**)
    What are you stats ( Age, Weight), goals, how long have you been training and how often do you go.

    I'm 28, around 275lbs. I've always been athletic, and naturally good sized, but I definitely have some BF to shed. I've been on WBB1 for 3 weeks now.

    Nice critique. Thank you.

    .

    Where should I put my flax? I've read here that you should try to really keep the fats down at night (although some have some before bed I noticed.) Where should I put it in?

    Actually I have read the opposite, because fat are calorie dense and also slow down digestion. I usually have flax before bed with cottage cheese.

    Anyways your new plan, it's better but it could still use some work --

    M1 - 8:30 - Combine 1 and 2 and and just 40g of whey.
    Use no more than 2 tbls of Natty PB

    M2 - 11:30 - looks good, the reason that this meal is 3hrs from the other one is because breakfast has a good amt to keep you going.

    M3 - 2:30 - looks good, either choice

    M4 - 4:30 - I would say dextrose instead of a bannana because the fructose in the banana may slow down the digestion of the simple sugers. Dextrose fills glycogen levels. I usually do 20g protein: 30 grams dextrose, Also take some vit c if possible.

    M5 - Try 40g protein : 80 - 120 grams dextrose
    5g Glutamine -- not really needed as it is in whey but won't hurt
    5g Creatine
    200mg ALA - Good Anti oxident also helps with insulin.

    M6 - 7:00 - 8:00 - Meal looks good.

    M7 - 10:30 - Cottage Cheese (1/4 tub)
    Tuna 1/2 tin -- not really needed
    Brocolli and/or Colliflour (steamed) -- you can drop this, your choice
    Flax
    Muti Vit

    I hope this helps. You can adjust amounts based on your caloric needs, start at 15*BW, then casually drop down to 12*

    If you need any more help don't hesitate to ask. I have been there myself. I was lucky thought because I had my own motivation. I dropped 80+ llbs. But I did it too fast because I never had a board to help me out. You are smart about it and therfore will lose the majority of BF and save muscle. Take some before and afters I wish I did but now it's just a memory.

    Cheers and Good Luck
