    1C cottage cheese
    1-2 egg whites
    1/2C oatmeal with skim milk

    IS THIS LOWFAT OR NO FAT COTTAGE CHEESE? ID USE WATER INSTEAD OF MILK IN THE OATMEAL. MIGHT WANT TO LEAVE THE COTTAGE CHEESE FOR BED TIME AN HHAVE MORE EGG WHITES HERE OR ADD A PROTEIN SHAKE.

    Lunch

    2oz. lean ham
    2 pieces organic wheat bread
    cheese stick
    organic crackers

    ID USE TURKEY OR CHICKEN INSTEAD OF PORK. LOSE THE CHEESE

    Snack

    1/2C oatmeal or apple
    tuna or cottage cheese

    DONT EAT COTTAGE CHEESE TWICE IN ONE DAY.. HAS ALOT OF SODIUM, GO FOR TUNA HERE

    Dinner

    some type of protein, carb

    Pwo

    50g protein
    50g oatmeal with skim milk

    THIS IS BAD U WANT TO ABSORB THE PROTEIN FAST PWO, U NEED A SIMPLE CARB WITH A HIGH GLYCEMIC INDEX TO MIX IN YOUR SHAKE.. TWO TABLE SPOONS OF HONEY IN THE SHAKE WORK GREAT. (UNLESS YOU BUY DEXTROSE)

    before bed

    1t flax
    1/2c cottage cheese
    COTTAGE CHEESE IS GOOD BEFORE BED., SLOW ABSORBTION. MAKE THAT 2 TBL SPOONS OF FLAX

    *THIS DIET NEEDS MORE EFA'S. ALSO YOUR POST WORKOUT MEAL IS KIND OF SMALL.

    Good advice Hi-Fi. I'd also encourage her to read the cutting sticky atop the page for a good general guide, as that is applicable to women as well as men.

    What I noticed though is that you said to avoid cottage cheese twice in a day because it has a lot of sodium, and to opt for tuna instead. You do realize tuna is VERY high in sodium, right?

    well im trying to cut , 2:1 is hell of a lot of carbs if im having 50g of protein.. i think 1:1 might be ok for you.

    Oh. It's not low carb actually because, well, never mind........

    Your plan is pretty horrid, I have to say it. You may wish to explore other areas in your quest to change as easily/best as possible. We also have no information on you such as weight/bodyfat/ultimate goals, etc., all of which are very key in regards to which type of dietary manipulation you choose to utilize.

    Just being honest as the sports nutritionist that I am.

    If not, then all good, good luck w/whatever it is you do.

    well the thing that jumps out at me most is that your mixing carbs and fats (cheese and oats). and your also using alot of milk it seems. Milk is loaded with uncessary sugars, just a white soda as far as i see it. IMO to get lean have your only carbs in the AM and PWO,PPWO

    Also, I will be doing a cycle of Anavar later in the year, will this diet suffice? I will probably add more protein though.
