Cutting Diet Critique
The following is the cutting diet that I have been following for the past two weeks. Just wanted to know if there is anything that looks glaringly wrong or that should be tweaked. I've lost a cuople of pounds the last few weeks and my stats are as follows: Height 5'8 - 5'9, 175 pounds, approx 13 - 15% bf. Workout 4 days a week, 1 hour AM Cardio at target heart rate on empty stomach (except 5 grams l-glutamine) 3 days a week.
Workout Days Diet:
Meal 1 (Preworkout): Pro/Fat
46 Grams of Whey & 2 Tbsps. Peanut Butter
Meal 2 (Postworkout): Pro/Carb
40 Grams of Whey, 80 grams Dextrose
Meal 3 (PPWO - 1hour after PWO) Pro/Carb
16 oz of Egg Beaters (48 Grams of protein), 1/2 cup of brown rice or 1/2 cup of Oatmeal
If I have time, I will substitute the egg beaters with 3 small chicken breasts
Meal 4 (Breakfast): Pro/Fat
10 Egg Whites, 2 slices of turkey breast, 1 Tbsp Flax Oil.
Meal 5 (Lunch): Pro/Fat
8 oz Grilled Chicken breast, 2 Tbsps Peanut Butter
Meal 6 (Afternoon Snack): Pro/Fat
8 oz Turkey Breast 1 Tbsp Olive Oil
Meal 7: (Dinner): Pro/Fat
Varies, but always consists of 40 - 50 grams protein, & 15 grams of fat
Meal 8: (Bedtime): Pro/fat
46 grams of whey, 1 Tbsp. Flax Oil
Cardio Days Diet:
Starts with Meal# 3 1 hour after Cardio.
For one thing, are there too many meals on workout days???...All feedback is appreciated.

Looks good to me bro, the ammount of meals really depends on how long you are up and if those meals combined fit your calorie expectations for the day. However the content of the meals you have listed looks very good; nice plan. Good luck

But thats one of the problems working out in the AM, it makes for a long day meal-wise.

You don't have to eat every 2 hours, you can space your meals out 3 hours apart if you need less calories. Or to just cut out one meal space 2 of your meals 3 hours apart and the rest 2, that should eliminate one meal.

For the most part they are 3 hours apart, except for my bedtime shake, that may be 2 hours after dinner. Would it be very unwise to eliminate the pre-workout shake??... I'm kind of struggling with loss of strength as it is due to the lack of carbs...
