    looks really solid man. Only thing I could reccomend would be swapping out the sun flower seeds for almonds.

    Im assuming that the 2 scoops of whey and the gatorade is your preworkout? I think you would be much better off haveing some whole food carbs prior to lifting like oats rather than gatorade mix especially when trying to cut.

    looking pretty solid though

    I dont know man, Im a female and eat that for calories on training days and 1800 on off training days. I think your carbs are too low and your fat is too high. Your food choices look good, the only thing I would change is the applesauce, even at natural, id switch it for a lite yogurt which has about 12 grams protein at Krogers. And I hope your sunflower seeds are unsalted as well.

    You say you have been on this for a month already, what have you seen for results in that time?

    the protein powder and gatorade are postwork out bro. i have thought about the almonds, but they can get expensive. thanks for the input bro.

    i have actually seen good results from this diet so far. Definately alot of definition is coming into play. the weight is not falling off, which is actually good because im looking to preserve some muscle. if i understand correctly i thought you were supposed to combat lack of carbs with healthy fats? I will try the yogurt, but the applesauce sure does make the oatmeal go down better! The sunflower seeds are roasted/unsalted. also i carb up saturday/sunday. this next week im going to bump the carbs up and take a couple fat meals out to see how my body reacts to it. thanks alot for the comments guys/gals.

    Howcome bro? the gatorade is a dextrose/sucrose mix, and i thought simple sugars were key in pwo nutrition, also meal 5 is my ppwo meal and i consume it 1hr after my pwo meal.

    Looks to me like someone might want to lower the fat and up the carbs and protein a little.

    whether you need the high insulin spike post workout is still up in the air and open to debate. However when looking to cut bf I feel your much better off going low gi for post. Even when bulking I still go low gi post workout.

    ok, thanks for making it a little clearer. i am going to drop the natty pb/sunflower seeds and stick with flaxseed for my pro/fat meals. im thinking 4 meals of pro/carb and two of pro/fat, with the pro-fat meals being consumed later in the evening.carbs will be coming from sweet potatos/oats/rice/beans.

    thanks again fitnfirm

    IMO it looks too low. Definetely not my tastes. And also, if you've already been on this diet for a month you probably want to try to switch it up, maybe increase calories. When you drop this low on calories for an extended period of time it can slow down metabolism considerably, especially if the demand from the body is great. It looks really solid but maybe you could add a meal or something.

    Drop gatorade, add oats.

    I use a similar approach myself and have found it to work quite nicely for fatloss. I ensure that the meals surrounding my workout are of the protein/carb variety, even if I'm working out in the evening.

    thanks bro, next week im going to drop all the fats except for the flaxseed and bump my carbs up to around 225-250. hopefully this will shock my body into some change. also my cardio will be up to 40 minutes in the a.m. just trying to find what works best for me.

    Sounds good. You're body is a very adaptive creature. Keep changing things up. Don't change too much of what you are doing in the gym, intensity is key. Keep weights high as I find this crucial. Keep morning cardio solid. Alternate carbs. Take is day by day and you'll reach success.
