    To me the diet looks really good!

    Do you do any cardio?

    If not I would suggest using EC with some BCAAs first thing in the AM and do 20 - 30 mins of low grade cardio 3 times a week. Seems to help keep the muscle but lose the fat.

    What is your height, weight and bodyfat %? Is this an example of your diet on a training day? Do you eat differently on non-training days?

    -Alex
    My height is 5'8" and my weight is 162.
    This is pretty much my diet on and off training days. I will adjust it accordingly to how I feel that day also. I am Carb sensitive so its kind of a love hate relationship. When I feel like I can use a little more I probably eat 45 grams extra but if I feel I am bloating up a little I will only do carbs pre and post workout then just eat veggies after my post wrkout carbs.
    What do you suggest ? What I hate is how go thru different phases all day long, sometimes i feel like my muscles are full and i feel pretty ripped but then ban I will have a meal or protein shake and start to feel bloated? Let me know if you have any tips or are there any supplements out there that help with this, THanks brother!

    By EC do you mean Ephedrine and Caffeine? I do cardio, usually 3 times a week after a workout for 20 mins, sometimes HIIT sometimes just a jog depending on how hard my strength traing went. Is there a specific EC supplement that you suggest?

    Your diet looks clean as hell bro. Props. There is nothing I could even be remotely critical about.

    For EC, the ephedrine you can buy at Walgreens or CVS. Generally I've heard better responses from Primatene than Bronkaid, they are both bonded to different salts and the Primatene contains a higher ephedrine amount by weight.

    I had to lose some weight for some surgery a month ago. I am lean overall with some fat in the midsection. They gave me a reduced calorie diet that was stricktly clean. What I am getting at is although you diet is clean, this will only prevent you from putting on any fat. The truth is, to burn away fat you must simply take in less calories than you consume. You can do this by becoming a cardio junkie (upping the cals burnt) or reducing you portions (reducing your calorie intake). This is the only way your body will tap into the existing fat storage to use it as fuel.

    i really do not agree wit you,
    I know you have to be in a calorie deficit in order to lose fat but I do not believe you have to becoame a cardio junkie to do it. There are allot of supplements out there and training methods that you can use in order to burn fat in a short amount of time. I do cardio about 3 days a week for 20 mins. when I am trying to lean out. Any more then that and I think you start to lose muscle.

    I took a look at your macro's:
    -Your protein comes out to be about 335g per day. (not including sources like veggies, almonds, beans etc.). so probably around 350g give or take. at 162lbs and an assumed 10-12% bodyfat you are about 145-150lbs lean. I think a lot of people jump to the conclusion that they are carb sensitive when in fact its just rationalization. Your protein is too high. Excess protein can definitely make you feel/look bloated! it becomes rough on your digestive system which can in turn make you bloated. Also, excess protein is converted to glucose - yes this process is why protein has a high thermic effect but its inefficient and may also contribute to that bloated feeling. I would put your protein at 250g which is a bout 1.75g per lb of LBM. I kept this a little higher because you may in fact be slightly less carb tolerant than many and keeping protein high will lessen your carb requirements for the day.

    -Your carbohydrates seem pretty low. about 150g or 1g per lb of LBM. you are eating a lot of fiber as well. Too much fiber can make you bloated and rip up your digestive system a bit. I would put your carbohydrates at 250g on training days and 150g on non training days. that's 1.75g/lb LBM and 1g/lb LBM respectively.

    -Ditch the almonds and the orange for now. They are okay snacks but I'd put you at 5 evenly balanced meals throughout the day and then see where you're at after a few weeks.

    -50g protein per meal from lean sources (whey, egg whites, chicken etc)
    your last meal can be a slightly fattier protein source like steak, salmon or some whole eggs. I wouldn't go about ~15g of fat here though. It is best to have the fattier meal as your last meal because you won't be having any starchy carbs here. Fat and carbs tend not to work well together unless you have a really fast metabolism. Keeping fat to a minimum (EFA'a and a little saturated fat) and carbs as high as you can without spilling over will keep you full, strong and feeling better.

    -keep eating your green veggies for fiber and choose fibrous starchy carbs for your main carb sources. I would structure your carb intake to have your largest carb meals be meal 1, pre workout meal and post workout meal. something like this:

    meal 1: 75g carbs (breakfast)
    meal 2: 25g carbs
    meal 3: 75g carbs (pre)
    meal 4: 75g carbs (post)
    Meal 5: veggies

    On non training days keep your carbs around 150g and prioritize them in your first few meals.
