yesterday i ate this:
8:30am cereal kellogs carb watcher ( i know i am switching to oats soon)
11:30am 4oz chicken w/ 1cup salad and 2tbls of dressing
2:30 1 turkey wrap with mustand
5:30 1 turkey wrap w/ 1cup salad and 2 tbls dressing
8:30 4 slices of turkey meat
1 gallon water
40oz. grean tea
totals are calories 995, fat 30, carbs 79, protien 76
i know thats a little low I was considering staying with this but adding 2 protien shakes, is that a good idea and when is the best time to take?
my totals with 2 shakes would be: cal= 1255, fat= 35, carbs= 89, protien= 116. any and all recomendations are appreciated!

Up your protein by about 200grams, up fat by about 100grams, use carbs as a filler for any cal surplus. Try to consume about 2000 cals at your weight
WOW, thats alot. should i have a protien shake with every meal then? and eat the same? but then i am still under on fat????
It really depends on his metabolism, but it does seem a bit low even for a cut.Originally Posted by sonofman
At 238 I would say at least 2400 Cals or so.
Move heavy weight, eat, sleep, repeat.
Geniuses make complicated scenarios simple, morons take simple concepts and complicate them.
dude.. my eight year old sister eats more than you do (and I don't even have an eight year old sister). I'm not sure what that means exactly.
We can all take stabs to figure out what should be your caloric intake on a cut, but only YOU can prevent forest fires... I mean figure out how much you need to eat.
Take one week, and maintain your weight. Record everything you eat. Use fitday.com, a notebook, your grandma's forehead.. whatever.. just keep track of it. Then take the average of the calories per day.
Then knock off 10-20% of that. Eat that much everday and re-adjust the total calories as you lose weight.
But serioulsy... there's no way that 995 calories is enough for you. My guess would be anywhere from 2200-2800 calories for a cut at your weight.
ok if I added a protien shake with each meal i would be at:
cals are a little low still my only concern is is that to many carbs for cutting????
one more thing i do have a very slow metabolism.
