    Please critique my diet


    Ok, I have been doing pretty good the past few months at my diet and have been steadily losing a little fat. But spring and summer will be here before I know it and it takes me a while to really trim down so I want to get really serious and start cutting the rest of the winter. Ive always been just a big guy and never been very cut so I want to see how cut I can get this year.

    My stats are 24yrs old 6'3" 253lbs, and if I had to guess 17% bf, havnt measured in a while.
    Here is my daily diet so far.

    breakfast 6:30am:
    PBJ sandwich on whole weat bread, all natural PB and sugar free jelly
    50g Nitro Core protein shake

    9:00 Break
    can of tuna
    3 bolied egg
    cup of low fat Activia yogurt

    12:00 Lunch
    Turkey and lowfat cheese sandwich on whole wheat bread
    cup of lowfat cottage cheese
    50g Nitro Core protein shake
    Fruit of some sort apple/banana/orange

    3:00 break
    50g Nitro Core protein shake

    workout around 6:00 followed by a 50g Issopure Zero carb protein shake

    dinner around 9:00
    usually either fish(talapia/salmon), steak, chicken breast
    sweet potatoe/ steamed broccoli/ other steamed veggies

    Before bed: 4 raw eggs (Pastuerized) blended with some OJ


    So where do ya'll think I need to make changes? I didnt used to do much cardio either and the past few weeks I have been really trying to step it up in that area. I usually follow this diet pretty good all week but sometimes wake up too late to make my lunch and end up eating out at like subway or something.

    Activia? Sugar Free Jelly? Low-fat crap? The only quality carb source I see is sweet potato and possibly the bread. You could probably tone back the protein a little. Don't be a girl and steam your veggies. That meal sounds so flavorless it hurts. Put some butter in your world.

    Don't take it too seriously. Quality food and quality workouts. Simple.

    you should replace some of your protein shakes with whole foods, like other posters stated. almonds, beans, sprouts, etc. are all good sources of protein, vitamins, and minerals.

    you should think about adding in more vegetables. if you can't, i suggest picking up a whole foods supplement.

    more fat also. normal dietary guidelines state that your diet should consist of 20-35% fat, which i think is a good number for any athlete. just add some olive oil to some of your meals for easy fat.

    When I first started cutting back all the bad carbs I used to eat I would get tired a lo easier, but now that my body has gotten used to the amount of carbs that I have been eating I feel just great in the gym with plenty of energy!
