    Diet Critique

    Well Im trying to drop some body fat right now.
    Im 5'10" 265-270 right now. My BF is in the 15-18% area.
    This is my current routine

    6am - 45 minutes of Cardio
    7am - 2 cups of egg whites
    9am - 1 Chicken Breast + Broccoli
    11am - 1 1/2 Chicken breast and 1/2 baked potato
    1 pm - All the Whey Protein Shake x 2
    3 pm - 1 Chicken Breast 1/2 Baked Potato 1 cup broccoli (cooked)
    5 pm - All the Whey Protein Shake x 2
    6pm - Workout
    7:30 All the Whey Protein Shake + Dex
    9 pm - Lean Steak and a cup of broccoli

    Ive been sticking to this for around a week now, been doing really good and dropping some fat.
    Currently on cycle.

    Opinions, critiques, suggestions?

    This is my current routine

    6am - 45 minutes of Cardio
    7am - 2 cups of egg whites

    Add an EFA to this meal i.e. Flax/Almonds/Natty PB

    9am - 1 Chicken Breast + Broccoli

    Add an EFA

    11am - 1 1/2 Chicken breast and 1/2 baked potato

    Lose the Potato, add an EFA

    1 pm - All the Whey Protein Shake x 2

    Again.. EFA (it doesn't have to be a full serving, could be half serving (7-7.5 grams)

    3 pm - 1 Chicken Breast 1/2 Baked Potato 1 cup broccoli (cooked)

    Move this meal to PPWO

    5 pm - All the Whey Protein Shake x 2

    Move this meal to after PPWO and have it with flax oil

    6pm - Workout
    7:30 All the Whey Protein Shake + Dex
    9 pm - Lean Steak and a cup of broccoli

    Scrap the steak, put the 3pm meal here.

    In Bold bro..

    General rules to follow:

    1. Never have protein alone
    2. Never combine fat/carbs in the same meal
    3. Always have pro/fat meal after cardio to continue lipolysis
    4. Save all the carbs to PWO/PPWO only.

    General outline to follow on training days:

    m1: Pro/Fat
    m2: Pro/Fat
    m3: Pro/fat
    -Workout-
    PWO Pro/Carb
    PPWO Pro/carb
    m6: Pro/Fat
    bed

    Cardio Only Days:

    All meals pro/fat.

    It all depends if you are cutting or bulking, and what your body is like. One of my favorite things for energy before the gym is having a drink that Swole coincidently drinks as well: Lo-Carb Monsters. Those things give me a great boost.

    Well I have to bump this because I have a question for you guys.

    I want to do 2 45 minute cardio sessions a day, one early in the morning and one later in the evening. Would I benefit from the same diet that Slizz posted a top?

    I really want to lean up again.

    You'd use the schedule for days off from training that he has above. All fat/pro meals. (Some have carbs in meal 1 just for "some" over the course of the day, or perhaps after the 2nd cardio session to replace the tad of glycogen lost over the course of the day and from the 2x cardio. Experiment!) Don't forget fibrous green veggies somewhere in the plan.......

    Currently I am on a tren /prop cycle. Should I discontinue it since I only started my second week. Or should I continue it? Although I am still going to me weight training it wont be at the same magnitude since I am doing a crap load of cardio, but it will definately retain its intensity.

    IMO keep the cycle in order to save all the LBM you can while doing all that cardio and calorie restriction.
