I need some opinions on my nutriton*

  1. Question I need some opinions on my nutriton*


    Age: 20, Weight: 179, Height: 5'9''

    I Have Endomorphic/Mesomorphic qualities and I'm starting to lose the fat and add more muscle, but my main goal is strength. I want to continue strengthing myself, but I do not want to add any unecessary fat. In the last month and a 1/2, i've lost 15 pounds and increased my strength a good bit. I just need to know if the following meal plan is going to be solid enough to maintain/promote strength and muscle without addding any/or too much fat.

    (I do plan on making other menus to swap around throughout the week.)

    Meal 1: Protein Shake w/ 1/2 cup of oatmeal & an Apple.
    (I usually go to the gym 45min. to an hour after this.)

    Meal 2: (post workout) 1/2 a protein shake w/ a chicken salad and a wheat
    hot dog bun.

    Meal 3: Turkey sandwhich w/ chicken breast and 2 tsp. of Peanut butter.

    Meal 4: 1/2 protein shake w/ 3 slices of turkey, a slice of wheat bread
    and a 1/2 cup of brown rice.

    Meal 5: (usually around 45 min. to an hour before bed.) 1 Protein shake w/ 1/4 cup of oatmeal & 2 tsp. of peanut butter.

    I'm not looking to pack on serious mass at this time, just looking to preserve/promote strength and to steadily cut fat until I lose about 10 to 15 more pounds. I would add a sixth meal,
    but my schedule doesn't currently allow it. My body is sensitive to too many/the wrong type of carbs and as an endomorph, I have to eat more protein than carbs and even less healthy fats to keep things in check.

    I'm currently using Protein shakes, Creatine, multivitamins and Jack3d.

    I Lift M/W/F and do some walking and and a little running along with core on Tuesdays & Thursdays and rest on the weekends.

    I would appreciate some help guys!


  2. Well fat helps alot with strength.I'd guess your getting around 40g of fat a day.If everything is working for you don't fix something that isn't broke!

  3. I would sub out some of the carbs and add some good fats in there.

    Peanut butter seems to be the bulk of your good fat intake, I would add some pecans, almonds and walnuts to the diet.

    yeah, good point. I was just making some adjustments since up until a few days ago, i was on the same diet as when i weighed 194 lbs. I just thought some changes in my caloric intake might help a little with the process.

    I do appreciate it though.

    I'll definitely incorporate some of those in with the meal plans. I'm glad you told me about the Saturated fats and the poly-saturated/unsaturated fats. I never knew that. I truly appreciate your help.
