New w/o and non w/o day diets please critique
Okay guys, I finally ran out of venison a while back and started eating chicken breasts in the venisons place (not realizing that I was coming up short about 200 calories every day of what I had planned). It has come to my attention that I appear to be going catabolic, so I thought to adjust my diet. Please take a look at the two attachments. The first diet it for workout days, and the second is for non workout days, the totals look like this

Okay well it won't let me attach the files but the protein is coming from protein shakes, and chicken. And the carbs are coming from the shakes, sweet potatoes, honey (pwo), and on non w/o days a detour bar. What do you at least think of the totals from above?

Bro.... why the low calorie count? I mean you are pushing the very limit on how low you can go especially on off days. Your off days should be the same ammount of calories as your training days just minues your PWO shake & add another Pro/Fat meal in it's place with similar calorie numbers. I mean if you are worried about canabolism, you need to up the calories slightly and keep doing what you are doing w/ cardio etc. Give it time... the fat will come off. I am in the same situation as you, only I have pretty much maintained my weight but lost thebody fat. I guess I am lucky with the genetics, but I guarantee you that my metabolism is worse than yours and I never go below the 2100 calorie mark. Keep in mind I am the same age, height, and size as you lol.
Oh yea... and keep the fats the same. There is nothing wrong with the ammounts you are using.

so you think that my calories are too low on non-workout days? I can up them a bit to around 2,000 if you think that will help. I can throw some oats in the mix on non-workout days, during meal 4. maybe about 52grams of oats, that would give me an extra 200 calories, 38g carbs, and 8g protein which would make my non-workout numbers look more like this:

Thanks bro. My workout days are also my cardio days, so that's why I don't utilize carbs in meal 1. Also there is about a 6 hour fast between meal 4 and 5 due to work, and meal 5 takes place at around 10:30-11:00, that's why I don't utilize carbs there. If there's another place though, that you think I should utilize carbs, or if you still think I should add them to meal 5 since my job is pretty physical, then let me know.

Where did you get your chicken breast values from because the fat in the chicken seems high, almost steak level? I have that 4 oz of COOKED chicken breast is 185 cals, 35 protein, and 4 fat...
With large eggs I have 3 being 220 cals with 19 pro, 15 fat, and 1 carb...
Im not sure if its worth being nitpicky in diets, I like to be though...

I got the 11g of fat off the bag...2g of it is saturated. Also, you know a hell of a lot more than me so you may be right about the eggs, I just swear that Nutrition Data told me that 1 largs whole egg (scrambled) had 101 calories. But i may very well be wrong

For Eggs I used this value: http://www.nutritiondata.com/facts-001-02s0033.html which is the same as on the egg boxes
For Chicken I use this http://www.nutritiondata.com/facts-001-02s00jj.html for cooked or this for raw http://www.nutritiondata.com/facts-001-02s00jh.html
