    What is your bf% and where do you want to be? Describe your workouts more fully. What types of weights are you lifting and what is the intensity and duration of your cardio workouts?

    Ditching the bread? it's 100% whole wheat, it's actually 4 grams of protein per, like 90 cals a slice. I thought wheat was good and white was bad? What could I put in place for the wheat bread then?

    Cardio i started today and as far protein I'll throw in some more chicken I guess and the fats i'll get some sort of EFA supplement..

    Swole is right, ditch the breadand keep your carbs pwo, and ppwo meals. Use rice or yams instead of the bread. Up the good fats as well in all other meals except pwo, and ppwo, these you want 0 fat.

    Ok cool, I will switch to Brown rice. I got a question though big.. shouldn't I have some carbs before my workout though? (I'm guessing pwo = post workout, and ppwo = post post workout?)

    Yeah you could eat a small amount of carbs like an hour or so before your workouts. When I am on a cutting phase all my carbs are in my first meal of the day and my pwo and ppwo meals.

    As for the meaning of pwo, ppwo, you are right.

    I'd use flax oil or EFA's in my morning protein shake, and throw that damn bread out the door..........it's crap for cutting puposes, white/wheat/purple/pink/whatever......

    your other protein only meals are lacking fat...........

    Not quite yet bro, about 50% I'd say from a healing/ability to push max weights standpoint.

    Damn, it takes forever once you are half healed! Thanks for asking brotha!

    Patience grasshopper.... you'll be back to your old self in no time. Hell it took me 2 years to recover from my neck injury and I'm better than before. Keep it up but stay safe, it's SO damn easy to re-injure yourself. Of course out of anybody... you know watcha doin. Best luck in your recovery.
