    Looks like you need some more protein.

    I'm going to start cutting in dec. with m-1-t, and the required liver supports, and lower cal intake to about 3000-3400. also, i was always told to take in 1x or 1.5X your bodyweight for the amout of grams for protein? so wouldn't that be sufficient? all the help is appriciated.

    If your insistant on bulking, and I would agree that at 17% you might want to reconsider, you need to look at your ratios. From what I can make of the ratios, the fat is 55%, and 79 g are saturated. You need to substitute some of that beef for chicken and/or fish. I personally would go to more like 50/30/20 or 40/40/20 for P/C/F and see if that doesnt do a little better for you. Cut out some of the saturated fat and supplement w/ flax or safflower oil. Ease up on the peanut butter, or go lowfat which will save you 4 or 5 fat grams/serving. Trust me, at nearly 20% bf and a diet of 55% fat you'll be bulking the wrong way.

    I split my total into 3rds and get 1/3 poly, sat, mono. If you want, you can lower the sat and up one of the others, but still get flax in your diet.

    What tubbs said, more chicken and fish and less red meat.

    well i don't know if this makes a difference, but i use the george forman grill, and when the burgers are done, it's like really dry and alot of the fat is in the tray, so i don't know if that takes off a lot of saturated fat or not. what do you guys think about that?

    The Foreman grill will help a lot, and I would venture a guess of about 1/2 of the fat will come off the burger with the grill. That will cut a lot of your saturated fat, as animal fat pretty much all saturated (typically solid at room temp). 12% is not a bad goal. If your not staying lean all year and you do the typical winter bulk/summer cut cycles, you don't want to dig too much of a hole (starting @ 17%) for cutting down. Try not to get too bogged down on strictly increasing body weight. I've seen a lot of people brag about being 250, 275 and looked like a tub of **** and get smoked on strength by lighter guys. Weight goals are great, but just keep it in perspective. (JMO)
    That bread is probably ok. There are better choices, like sweet potatoes, brown rice, oatmeal, whole wheat pasta, etc. I too like bread and try to incorporate it in the morning, and thats about it. Make sure it has good amount of fiber and not just straight carbs. Some of the "honey" and other special wheat breads can be misleading on how much fiber/sugars you would think they have. Once you lean out to your goal, your best bet, since you have gotten a lot leaner, is to stick with a "cleaner" diet and up the portions for your "bulking" phase and stay close to the above ratios. I think you'll like the way you look and feel better. These are just my suggestions.

    Actually, the main thing you get in the tray of a foreman is water mixed with a small amount of grease. So if you are cooking normal ground beef in the foreman, they are still as fatty as normal. Granted, its better then frying them in oil, but a lean cut of beef or chicken would be better.

    I also agree with a lot of the above mentioned points - you need to get leaner before bulking, and you need less fats (especially saturated) and more variety. Where are fruits and veggies? Where are the EFAs?

    would have said this exact thing...

    plus look at the quality of your fat... saturated is horrible

    you need more poly and mono UNsaturated fats and less saturated.. plus all that saturated fat will make it even harder on your already somewhat high 17% bodyfat.. i would take out some of that peanut butter and add more protein shakes..

    changed


    i've now changed my diet, becuase i'm on a major cutting phase, i know it's winter and i should be bulking, but i wanna reduce my Bodyfat down to at least 12% before i start to bulk again. my diet now consists of like 6 cans of tuna aday, about 4 slices of whole wheat bread, chicken breasts, 4 flax seed tablespoons, and 2 protein shakes, 1 post work out, and 1 before i sleep. i'll calculate later what that turns out too
    but it's somewhere around 2300 cal? if that. thanks for everyones help and replies.

    today i weighed in at 209lbs, gained like 2 lbs i guess, but it doesn't look like any fat grew, since i've been on this clean meal, but that's only 2 lbs in like a month, but i just ordered m-1-t and will be doing 10mg ed for 2 weeks and 2 weeks off, then evaluate if i should wait till i get down to 12-13% body fat to start bulking with 20mg or just do it after the 2 weeks off. but i'm 6'1" 209lbs with about 17% bf. so hopefully this cutting diet will shed some fat. with cardio on my off days and light cardio on my lifting days.

    depends on how you do with your diet and such and how your body responds to cardio etc. make sure your still getting 5 meals a day.. just make them clean meals and slightly smaller portions.. i would probobly hit some cardio 3 times a week.. lower intensity jogging.. 45 minutes or so.. watch the fat melt off.
