    Due to being enrolled in college, at times it is difficult for me to eat right. The limited amount of food and timesthat I can eat, make it hard to have a really good diet. After lurking around the forums and trying to make healthier decisions this is what ive been eating latley

    I have a muscular build but after first semester have put on some weight in my mid section that comes hand in hand with poor eating, I am now making a conciensce effort to lose that weight before summer rolls around

    currently im 6'3 215, the only real fat being in my mid section that im trying to lose. this is what I haven been eating for about the past week and seems to work

    9:00 --
    Creatine
    2 Egg whites
    1 whole egg w/ketchup
    2 pieces of whole wheat toast with some rasberry spread (its just there next to the toast I have no idea what it is lol)

    11:00 --
    A Bananna

    12:30 --
    Sandwich with Lite wheat bread/Provolone cheese/turkey/lettuce/honey mustard,
    3 Egg whites w/ salt


    3:00 --
    Whey 24g protein shake


    6:00 --
    2 chicken brests w/ Bbq sauce or mariana sauce
    occassional salad
    fruit
    White rice with soy sauce


    9:00 -- Whey 24g Protein shake and/or assorted fruit
    Protein Bar

    Im also lifting upperbody only on Mon,Weds,Fri

    Diet and training look pretty poor. Start tracking calories. Eating healthy is cheap. Oats, peanut butter, whey, olive oil, chicken, tuna, eggs etc are all cheap.

    Yeah, your diet needs a little work there, as does your routine. Start with some healthy fats (think olive oil/peanut butter), replace the bread you're eating, and get some vegetables in there.

    So far, it appears you only consume bread, egg whites, chicken, and protein shakes. That diet needs a little tweaking.

    If your campus doesn't have tuna buy a whole bunch of cans of tuna and keep them in your room. Easy snack and very healthy.

    I am an admitted cafeteria-thief, too. I'd take out an extra chicken breast or a glass of milk in a container basically every day. As for replacing plain white bread... hmm, at the risk of feeling like the national broccoli association's spokesperson, ditch the bread for the broccoli. Also, you only eat one actual egg per day - you don't have high cholesterol problems, do you? I think you can afford another few egg yolks per day. Just an idea. It seems to me that they get a bad rap solely because of "the evilllll fats".

    Ive always just been told to avoid egg yolkes as much as I can, apparently their evil.

    At the caf I dont get the scrambled eggs that they give out, their very nasty. I usually get a bunch of the bagel egg sandwiches and take out the sunny side up eggs. I then remove some of the yolkes

    Thanks everyone for the advice so far
