    dinner is easy,

    fatty protein, with a teaspoon or 2 of extra virgin olive oil and green veggies.

    and on workout days same thing just add in carbs.

    i hope you get food in before your swim session though

    you also need protein in meal 1

    Is steak considered a "fatty protein"?

    what is the best kind of protein that would would suggest for breakfast? eggs, bacon, sausage ?

    and before i swim i eat a protein power bar, is this enough?

    Thank you for the suggestions

    Ground beef would be the best fatty protein IMO. For breakfast I eat 6 eggs, tbsp EVOO, and 4 turkey sausage. OM NOM NOM

    As for losing weight, your best bet is to map out your meals calorie by calorie and go from there

    just a little idea to keep your metabolism moving...you have a 6 hour gap between your 1st and 2nd meal. add a snack in the middle of there. keep it complex carbs if possible.

    with as much cardio as your doing just keep your diet clean stay away from the simple carbs and fats and you'll lose that 20 pounds in no time.
