    Diet Critique

    Ok guys, looks like I’m going to be able to change my hours so no more of this cardio/training same session BS. LOL it lasted a good 3 days. I used to be pretty overweight and out of shape so I wanna run a final 8-10 week cut before I start a good bulk. With this change in schedule here is what I have come up with for a baseline diet. Let me know what you think.

    My BMR measures out at right about 2400

    2:15-3:00 – Cardio (yeah I get up really early) @ 65-75% MHR
    3:30 Meal 1 – 2 Scoops Whey, 1 TBL Flax
    6:00 Meal 2 - 8 egg whites, 1 whole, 2 strips bacon, 10g glut (shift starts right at 3:30, so don’t get a break until now)
    8:30 Meal 3 – 1.5 Chicken Breasts, 1 Cup Veggies
    11:00 Meal 4 – 1 Can Tuna, 1 Cup Veggies
    12:15 – 1:15 ****Workout****
    1:30/1:45 PWO 1 – 2 Scoops Whey, 92g Dex
    3:30 PWO 2 – 8oz Sirloin, 1 Cup Veggies, 1 Cup Brown Rice
    5:30 Meal 7 – 1 to 1.5 Chicken Breasts, 2 scoops almond or natty PB
    6:00 – ZMA
    6:30 – Bed

    Obviously this would be tweaked for non workout days, but just off the top of my head should come out to about : 320g P/ 141g C / 37gF which I think is roughly 2200 cals.

    Any advice is appreciated as I just threw this together pretty quickly when I found out that I could change up my work schedule.
    Thanks!

    Thanks Guys!! Let's try this:

    2:15-3:00 – Cardio (yeah I get up really early) @ 65-75% MHR
    3:30 Meal 1 – 2 Scoops Whey, 1 TBL Flax
    6:00 Meal 2 - 8 egg whites, 2 strips bacon, 10g glut (shift starts right at 3:30, so don’t get a break until now)
    8:30 Meal 3 – Chicken Breast, 1 Cup Veggie, 1 scoop PB
    11:00 Meal 4 – 8 oz steak (lean cut sirloin), 1 Cup Veggies
    12:15 – 1:15 ****Workout****
    1:30/1:45 PWO 1 – 2 Scoops Whey, 92g Dex
    3:30 PWO 2 – 1 Can Tuna, 1 Cup Veggies, 1 Cup Brown Rice
    5:30 Meal 7 – 1 to 1.5 Chicken Breasts, 2 scoops almond or natty PB
    6:00 – ZMA
    6:30 – Bed

    I bolded the changes, see if this looks a little bit better, I just moved some stuff around and assumed the steak/veggie could count as a pro/fat meal even though the fat content isn't overly high it should keep my macros about the same as before. I appreciate the help!! This site is BA. I could change up the fats but can't think of any other 'good' fats to add in or replace. I tend to stay away from alot of nuts, even with a couple gallons of water a day they tear my stomach up and the wife will chase me with Oust.

    Here's a stupid newbie question. Does it make sense since the only time I'm consuming carbs is post workout to not even consume them at all, besides slow burning veggies, on non workout days? Obvoiusly I know that the dex is out but wasn't sure if I should still incorporate one complex carb/pro meal.

    have one pro/ carb meal on none0workout days in mid afternoone, and replace your PWO shake with a pro/ fat meal
