    300g protein? I'd maybe cut it down a tad and give some more to fats.

    As far as your food choices go, it seems fine, some variety might be nice but it's really up to you.

    Thanks for the advice, I went 1.5g/lb I could cut that back and do 1.25/lb which would be 250g? Think thats good? I was also a little worried that my carbs were a little too high for a recomp at 300g?

    I know its a pretty bland diet but I'm super strict on myself and never stray from it. Some days I might do some addition and subtraction to it as long as I stay within the parameters.

    The protein calculations should be for LBM, so 202 lbs at 19% will give you around 163lbs. 1.5 times that is around 240g so that would be more than enough.

    Ah, I got it. Thanks for clearing that up, I'll shoot for 240 then I'll just cut down my protein shakes from 40g to 25g and cut my brown rice in meal 2 from 2 cups to just 1.

    Recomping really won't come down to your food choices, just how much over maintenance you are. Do you know your TDEE?

    I'd drop the carbs to 220 ish(especially on your two days off) and up the fats. I like to keep my protein high.

    Okay so I got my protein down to 220g easily, carbs I can cut out 1 cup of brown rice and 5oz red potatoes and that should get it down to about 220/230. would that be a good split or should i add alittle more protein?
