    I've been on this diet for 2 weeks now..PLEASE CRITIQUE!!

    Ok...so I'm trying to cut a little bit. I know I won't have abs by mid June or anything like that because my belly was too fatty when I began my diet and I'm just doing this one for 1 month. I can't possibly toy with the thought of having the discipline to go with this one for more than a month. However, I have noticed pretty good results so far. My arms look a little bit more solid and defined (more solid than defined) and my gut has diminished significantly taking into account I've been on this diet for only 2 weeks. I could honestly say that I no longer show a gut and my abdominal area is almost flat, but with some love handles on the sides and a soft look.

    This is my diet...I need to know what I'm doing wrong, if anything.

    Meal 1:

    4 egg whites
    1 slice of whole wheat bread
    2 slices of 97% fat free ham
    1 low-carb breakfast bar (13g protein, 2.7 carbs)

    Meal 2:

    1 can of tuna fish
    1 serving of Xport Soda Crackers
    1 tablespoon of light mayonnaise

    Meal 3:

    Chicken breast or large portion of turkey
    Mixed veggies

    Meal 4:
    Whey protein SHake (46g)

    Workout

    Meal 5:
    1 1/2 cup of rice
    steak, chicken, or any meat
    1 can of soda

    Meal 6:
    Whey Protein Shake (46g)

    I weigh around 165 pounds and my height is 5'9. So far, I think my fat has reduced but I would like to know if I need to make some changes to this diet or I just have to extend it for a longer period of time (how much?) to get abs??

    YOur comments will be very appreciated....

    Read the Cutting Sticky. #1 is your missing post workout nutrition.

    you need to get PWO (pots work out) shake. this should be anywhere from 60-80g carbs and half protein. for someone that is in the 160 range i would say you could do 35g wheyprotein/70g dextrose. or you could do 35gwhey/35gdextrose+35gmaltodextrin. go to www.proteinfactory.com and check it out

    I actually did read that sticky before doing my diet. Why do you guys say I'm missing my PWO nutrition?? I'm feeding with more carbs than protein. I'm eating 1 and a half cup of rice....isn't that enough?? I'm also eating either steak or chicken breast as protein sources.

    I don't understand.....the sticky says you should eat most of your nutrients from real food, yet you guys claim that I need to take a shake instead of food??

    Confused......

    Well....I thought I could consume that once a day since it's on PWO nutrition, and I read those 27g of sugar would be beneficial at that stage.

    I sometimes drink Diet sodas....is that ok?

    Diet soda during the day in moderation while dieting is fine, yes.

    Regular soda pwo will do absolutely nothing beneficial to replinish glycogen stores and
    begin the recovery process. As well, coupling that with a steak of all things is a very bad idea.
