Thread: Diet Question

Creative subject huh??
Anyways, I am currently around 210lbs at 5'11. My body fat is between 12 - 15%, I am not sure because I have not had it checked in a few months. I need to start a good diet before I go on my cycle in a couple months. I would like to maintain my body weight but lose some fat around my belly and my chest. I was a little fat kid so I have some fat around my chest which is annoying and of course the almighty abs. I kind of have an idea of what I wanna do. But I am unsure of how many meals to eat a day and how many carbs/how much protein should I intake per day to maintain weight but cut fat...I know cardio is a major point and I will make sure I do at least 30 minutes a day. Any input would be appreciated.

Perhaps you could lay out what you were thinking of doing for comments from the rest of us?

10am Meal 1: Banana, lowfat peanut butter and honey sandwich on wheat bread
12pm Meal 2: 2 servings of no fat cottage cheese.
3pm Protein Shake
4:30pm Meal 3: Dinner, usually chicken grilled or some sort of fish. Sometimes if I am in rush to get to work I eat tuna with lettuce.
8pm Meal 4: Protein shake and a can of tuna.
I just dont have alot of free time to eat more frequently. Any opinions on this or suggestions on what I can substitute in for some of my foods that I eat now for variety. I know its broad, but any help is appreciated.

First of all, unless you have INCREDIBLE will power, and only you know if you do, you really are not eating very much. I would be soooo hungry on your plan. Thern again, I don't know what type of portion size you eat. Secondly, change the peanut butter and honey sandwich to eggs or something. You will cut the carbs out and add protien. Protien-- thath is what preserve muscle-- remember-- your goal. The hone is just sugar, plain and simple. Sugar converts to fat-- Thought you want to cut, right?
Meal 2. Cotage cheese has carbs. The low fat stuff is worse then the the regular stuff. Persoanlly i'd switch to tunafish on lettuce slices. Lower carbs- higher protien.
Rest looks good to me. Ad in extra meat or fish or eggs if u get hungry during the day. Make sure your protien drink is low carb too-- no more than or 3 gm carbs per scoop.

How many eggs should I have for breakfast?? I was thinking about boiling some eggs and just eating the whites. Would that be good?
Is it ok to put some olive oil and lemon juice on the tunafish??
Sorry for all the newbie questions but I greatly appreciate the help.

Olive oil is a great idea on tuna. A little lemon juice is okay too.
