    Could you total the macros for each meal and most importantly the final one for the day?

    Have you calculated your resting calorie expenditure?

    holy crap bro.... your macro's are way off.... and you are starving the hell out of yourself your not losing anything because your not actually eating anything.... the only way this diet would remotely strip weight off you is if you were taking a crapload of T3 and then all your muscle mass would go byebye and you look like an ethiopian...

    You NEED good or you NEED carbs you cant survive without both your are literally starving yourself and you body is compensating for it....

    12oz of tuna has something like 90g of protein BTW bro...

    You need to first establish a BMR for yourself based on your lean mass and not total bodyweight and then use an activity modifier based on your daily activity level.... once thats complete post it and I'm assuming your considering low carb dieting so we will help you work one out once we know how man calories you need but most likely your diet will be somewhere around....

    250g protein
    100g carbs
    100g fat

    based on your needs the macro's will be adjust and then we need to talk about fat sources...

    thanks soulstealer do I go to the gym and get a personal trainer to establish my BMR???
    and how do I use an activity modifier??where do I find that?? I know these may be stupid questions, but I am absolutly fed up with being unhealthy and yes I am considering a low carb diet, wouldn't that be the best for cutting?? The diet I posted was to my best knowledge...so all the help is very much appreciated...

    What do you do for a living... desk job or construction worker... or what?.... and what does your workout routine look like in detail...?

    Thanks for the help guys its appreciated
    1st off, ur numbers aren't right.
    2nd, add another small meal or snack, so make it seven smaller meals
    3rd ur caloric intake is way too low for some one who isn't even working out, I assume u r working out, so u need higher caloric intake.
    4th cardio 4-5 times/week
    5th weight train 4-5 times/week
    6th CHANGE your work out routine

    oh yeah, and read the bold.

    Good luck
    smoke

    Your BMR is closer to 2,000 cals a day as bodyfat doesnt yield any metabolitic effect.... multiply that by 1.5 to get an idea of where you should be is

    3000 calories a day so if you want to lose weight you would drop 700 calories from this every day and burn off another 2000 from cardio a week which would be

    700 x 7= 4900 calories negative a week
    subtract 2000 from cardio

    6900 calories a week negative which is close to 2 pounds a week you would lose which is perfect..... out of this you want your diet to be something like:

    225g protein
    125g carbs
    100g fat

    and a diet that looks something like this

    Meal 1 50g carbs oatmeal
    25g protein whey
    18g protein eggwhites

    Meal 2 Green veggie + 6 oz chicken breast(roughly 35g protien

    Meal 3 same

    Meal 4 same

    Meal 5 PWO 50g carbs oatmeal 25g protein whey
    1 can of tuna 37.5g protein

    Meal 6 Chicken breast 6 oz + veggies + 2 servings peanut butter....

    lean fish like orange roughy or tilapia or tuna may be substituted for
    chicken breast

    1 serving of lean beef can be eat a day.... just reduce BP intake to compensate for daily fats.... and make sure at the end of the day your macros
    add up....

    1 day per week drop the peanut butter and bump your carbs to 300 grams from brown rice... this will replenish your glycogen stores... and If your doing HIIT cardio and are natty this is the only day to do hiit otherwise go steady state...

    on a side note your training split is fine.... just dont do abs twice per week and make sure you squat and deadlift.....

    you should be doing atleast 4 45 minute steady state cardio sessions and one HIIT if not 5 steady states and a HIIT....

    follow this and I promise you the weight will fall off you...

    Oh and one last thing before you start this diet... take 2 days off from your current one and get plenty of calories from carbs and fat.... that should take you far out of starvation mode... and I dont mean eat 10 gallons of icecream

    Its really comes down to a CNS over training issue 5 days of weight training is fine a week if you take a week off every 2 months or so, so you can recover I am currently doing 5 days a week but havent taken any time off in over 3 months so I am over training I can feel it even on gear.... I will be switching over to a 4 day split to give my body and CNS enough time to recover Ideally natty 4 days a week of weights and 5 or 6 days a week of cardio max that wont insure you wont overtrain but will help you recover most importantly listen to your body if your body's telling you it over training take a few days off to a full week let yourself recover and gaines will come...
