    Add 4 or 5 more meals a day for starters. Smaller healthy meals several times a day is much better than 2 large meals. What else do you eat besides chicken and turkey? Any fruits, veggies...
    What about vitamins, amino acids...

    Definitely add some more meals through the day. What's your weight training look like?

    beef is awesome. if you're concerned about body fat, just ditch the higher fat beef (ribeye, ground beef, etc) and stick with leaner cuts like top sirloin, london broil (the leanest cut of all).

    as the above posters mentioned, add in a few more meals to regulate your metabolism better, throw in some fasted (AM) HIIT, and taper down your carbs after your workouts - so you're taking in less carbs closer to bed. hope that helps.

    For burning fat, interval training is the sure bet, but keep your caloric intake up there so you don't lose weight. Plyometrics added to your training routine would be helpful, too since football players need bursts of body mechanics, as well as endurance. Eat, eat, eat.

    Definitely focus on big, compound lifts. I'm guessing your trying to get a spot as a lineman so try to stay explosive in the legs.

    Your diet needs to improve. You need to spread out your meals more and eat smaller portions. They have workout plans and nutrition advice at vastmuscle.com. Thats what a friend of mine used and he got in great shape so I figured I would try it this summer.
