    Lightbulb Need Help With A Cutting Diet

    Hey guys, this is my first post...some background info: I'm 21 years old, 6'3" 235 lbs, endomorphic (extremely easy gainer, always had trouble cutting), been training hard for about 2 years (never any juice), and I'm not sure what my bf% is at currently but it's a hell of a lot higher than I want it to be. I'm wanting to drop my body fat about 5-6% and get down to about 205-210lbs. I put together a cutting diet after reading the stickies, doing tons of research, and trial and error with cutting and bulking in the past and was wondering what ya'll thought, thanks!:

    AM Cardio (45 mins of Jogging on treadmill or outside)

    Meal 1: 1 whole egg, 5 egg whites
    1/2 cup cooked oatmeal, 1/8 cup raisins, 1 tsp. cinnamon
    1/2 grape fruit
    1 scoop whey protein in water

    Meal 2: 1 scoop whey protein in water
    2 tbsp. of flax
    2 tbsp. of heavy cream (in shake)
    1 6oz. can tuna in water

    Meal 3: 8oz. chicken breast
    1/2 cup brown rice
    2 cups salad greens w/ tbsp. fat free ranch dressing

    Workout

    Meal 4: 2 scoops of whey in water
    60 grams of dextrose
    multivitamins

    Meal 5: 8 oz. ground turkey
    2 cups broccoli

    Meal 6: (Mix all the following and cook): 2 scoops whey protein
    1 whole egg, 3 egg whites
    1 tsp. cinnamon, 1 tsp. splenda

    Totals: 2712 cals, 81g fat, 170g carb, 336g protein
    (I will also be taking a thermogenic (Instone leanfire) and glutamine)

    good start. walk at an incline, don't jog if you want to save as much muscle as possible.

    turn meal 3 into pro\fat. make meal 5 (ppwo) pro\carb, yeah veggies are carbs but fiberous (sp) ones and you should replace it with a sweet potato/brown rice/etc.

    That's good to hear...99% of the stuff out there is geared towards hard gainers...glad to see there are people out there working on stuff for the rest of us.

    Updated Diet

    Here's the revamped diet, Meal 3 is now pro/fat and Meal 5 is pro/carb based on Nixon's advice. I think I should throw some green veggies in there somewhere, but I'm not quite sure where to put them, as I originally had them in Meal 3 and 5. Let me know what ya'll think. Thanks.

    AM Cardio (45 mins of walking on an inclined treadmill)

    Meal 1: 1 whole egg, 5 egg whites
    1/2 cup cooked oatmeal, 1/8 cup raisins, 1 tsp. cinnamon
    1/2 grape fruit
    1 scoop whey protein in water

    Meal 2: 1 scoop whey protein in water
    2 tbsp. of flax
    2 tbsp. of heavy cream (in shake)
    1 6oz. can tuna in water

    Meal 3: 8oz. chicken breast
    1/2 oz. almonds

    Workout

    Meal 4: 2 scoops of whey in water
    60 grams of dextrose
    multivitamins

    Meal 5: 8 oz. ground turkey
    1 cup brown rice

    Meal 6: (Mix all the following and cook): 2 scoops whey protein
    1 whole egg, 3 egg whites
    1 tsp. cinnamon, 1 tsp. splenda

    Totals: 2810 cals, 91g fat, 171g carb, 336g protein
    (I will also be taking a thermogenic (Instone leanfire) and glutamine)

    you can keep vegies in meal 3 and anywhere else but meal 5 because you want fast absorbtion for the protein.

    Why dump the carbs in meal 1? I thought a large portion of your carbs should be taken in the morning (the other time being PWO) even while cutting. Also, how would you alter this diet on non lifting days?
