    Very New To This, Please Critique Diet!

    Hey guys

    I am very new to this whole dieting idea. I'm 6'2, 200 pounds, with about 17% bodyfat. I'm a college student, so needless to say I need to make my diet and protein consumption as cheap as possible. My goal is to burn fat off and become much more leaner than I am now. I would like to hit 200-250 grams of protein a day. Because of school, I will only be able to lift in the mornings around 10am, I plan on doing this 4 times a week. I read the sticky, and I am trying to customize it the best way I can. If I can be helped out it would be greatly appreciated

    Day Starts

    Cardio-( Is it ok to ride a exercise bike so i will be able to monitor my target heart rate) and how long do I stay in my target heart rate zone?

    Meal 1:
    2 cups total protein cereal with milk, 1/2 cup oatmeal-39g Protein


    Meal 2- PWO Nutrition 50 G protein Shake (this is what i don't understand, the sticky says to double your carb intake at this point, meaning 100 carbs, what would i be able to eat that are good carbs that would be able to give me 100?)

    Meal 3:
    1 cup Veggies, 2 Chicken Breasts 41 G Protein

    Meal 4:
    Protein Shake + can of tuna 40 G protein

    Meal 5:
    1 cup Veggies, can of tuna, cup rice -32g Protein

    Meal 6:
    Shake (Sticky says flax, what is it?) 26 g Protein

    Once again I put together this diet by reading as much information as I could from this board. I would like to keep it as cheap as possible, if anyone has any advice or would make any changes please let me know.

    Thanks a lot guys

    Additionally, if you are doing cardio first thing a.m., u cannot eat and then go to workout...........that is an assinine idea.

    Getting Fat
    There are a few non-diet related questions i can answer for you.
    Cardio: Yes, a bike is fine.
    Duration: 40-60 minutes, it will vary some.
    Flax: It is an essential fatty acid. Buy the liquid that comes in a bottle. You should be able to get it at any health food store.
    PWO: The ratio is best taken in shake form (Whey & Dextrose). Then eat another PWO meal later. In case you ask, Dextrose is a simple sugar that causes an increase in blood glucose, which causes an insulin spike and the insulin shuttles the carbs (glucose) and protein into your muscles. The glucose replesnishes glycogen stores that you depleted while lifting, that is your energy. Hope this might help.
