    Need diet critique...


    I'm 5'10", and looking to lose about 40lbs...I've put this together quick to see what you guys think...working out mon-fri 1 hr of weights.

    Breakfast:

    5 eggs scrambled with onions
    16 oz skim milk with 1 scoop whey
    2 pieces toast with 2 tbsp smart balance
    Vitamin

    40f
    60p
    50c

    Lunch:
    1 cup cottage cheese
    1/2 cup almonds

    45f
    15c
    45p

    Post workout:

    50g shake
    2 cups raspberries
    Vitamin

    50p
    34c

    Dinner:

    Meat and veggies (approx)

    40p
    10-40f

    Totals:


    206p
    95-125f
    84c

    2015 calories - 2285 calories

    How does it look? The only supplements I'm using are whey, a pre workout, and a multi. Maybe some BCAA's and creatine.

    What's your maintenance level? Need to drop weight slow---adjust macros accordingly. Need about 1gm protein/lb bodyweight, 20-25% calories from fats the rest from carbs.

    This.

    Weight loss needs to be a slow process and while this may be undesirable your body will thank you for it. Find out your TDEE (total daily energy expenditure) and subtract NO MORE THAN 500kcals from this amount. Once weightloss plateaus, incorporate a re-feed then start again with a deficit until you reach your goal weight.

    Re-feeds aren't the 'end all be all' but they help getting into single digit BF% and getting off that little bit extra.
