    Meal plans for someone on a 40/40/20 diet


    If you're on a 40/40/20 diet, what does a meal plan for a day look like for you? My goal is to cut, so my calories are going to be 2k/day. I really appreciate any ideas that anybody would be so kind to share.

    I am always on a 40/40/20 diet. Normally, I maintain at 3200 calories, so I eat 8 meals of 400 calories. Each meal is designed to be 40/40/20. When I cut, I shrink it down to 5 or 6 meals of the same size. When I bulk, I eat the same 400 calorie meals, but 9 or 10 of them.

    I make chicken and rice casseroles, tuna noodle casseroles, oatmeal & protein powder with walnuts, etc.

    Lean ham sandwiches are a good standby for me, since they are easy to make. The bread is not great, since it has a higher glycemic index, but its a compromise I make.

    Other ideas:
    Chicken Breast sandwiches
    Oatmeal and some lean meat such as turkey or chicken.
