You don't need 316 grams of protein, that's nuts. Carbs look fine as long as they are coming from good sources. Lastly, in the name of bacon, eat some more fat!! All kinds! Mono, poly, saturated. It's all good.
What is your goal? That will matter.

3 shakes a day seems excessive, try to eat more whole food sources. Adding extra virgin olive oil or a handful of almonds/pecans/nuts to your diet will increase your fat intake.

trying to get body fat down to 10% or less before starting a hdrol or mdrol cycle so i can get everything i can out of it.
The protein i counted the bread and everything.
what if i drop a shake for a natty peanut butter and pickle sandwich on whole wheat?
11-04-2009, 09:55 PM
so i should get protein to about 255 and fat to what?

i'm in the same boat as you, 175lb 5'9 probably near %18 bf. i'm doing 40% carb 40% pro 20% fat @ 2200 cal. olives and flax oil and eggs are my main sources of fat.
I eat 3 shakes with water a day too. but usually combine them with a half cup of veggies and sometimes flax oil.

Well I was up to about 185 a couple months ago so I seem to be dropping weight. I know I've lost some muscle too but that comes back quick. Just need to make sure diet is right.

Looks better now. That should provide a solid base to what you want to achieve.

I DO CHANGE THE DINNER LIKE FISH OR BEEF. PEANUT BUTTER AND PICKLE SANDWICH INSTEAD OF TUNA THINGS LIKE THAT BUT ALWAYS EAT AT THE SAME TIME.

Mix in other foods and give yourself a variety. It will make it easier for you to stay on your diet as well as stay sane. The important thing here is to keep close to the same macros and cals and to keep adjusting those to how your body responds.

1 cheat meal a week is cool right.
11-09-2009, 06:02 PM
Depending on what you want to accomplish. If you want like 6-8% BF then I would keep it to way less than that. If you just want a 6-pack, then that would be fine.
