    Stuck in Iraq need diet nutrition help plssss !


    I`m tryn to do ckd for the next 7 -8 weeks or so BUT my problem is the lack of healthy food here. I need a daily nutrition plan that I can repeat every single day cus of the lack of good food here on this base.
    I rlly dont mind eatn the same thing over and over again food cravins and stuff like that aint a problem for me.

    Here are my stats

    30 yr old

    5 foot 9

    178

    bf% acordin to the navy method is 13% accordin to the dang Omron thingy its mid 12`s I personally feel like 15% but thas jus me.

    My schedule here is THA SAME everyday. I`m a mechanic for the EOD Soldiers and I work from 7am-7pm 7 days a week in ( currently 117 degree weather acordn to the thermometer )

    As far as water goes I drink nearly a gallon and a half a day.
    No sodas Just water and maybe some green tea at night

    as for my work out
    i lift 5-6 days a week during my lunch break and cardio 6 days ( fasted ) around 4 am

    I need help with my daily nutrition
    cant figure out my 6 meals and im gettn confused with how many calories exactly im suppost to be takin in while on a cut.
    i know your suppost to have a certain amount of protien/carbs/fat
    but that stuff confuses da hell outta me

    as i said b4 this place sucks when it comes to good food

    here is what i know they regularly have at the chow hall ( other than the junk food they feed everyone with )

    tuna
    turky sandwich slices
    hamburger patties with cheese

    hardboild eggs
    cottage cheese ( low fat i dunno ? )
    them small quaker oats oatmeal packets ( each with 26 or 28 carbs )
    mixed nutts

    veggies :
    carrot slices
    celery
    lettuce
    tomato
    SOMETIMES brocoli

    I would really appreciate if ya guys could help me come up with a meal plan that i could follow everyday. Like i said i`ll eat the same thing every day i dont care.
    As for whey protien they sale nitrotech hardcore here its like 110 calories per scoop 20g protiene 4.5 carb

    PLEASE PLEASE HELP A BROTHA OUT

    What FOB are you at mate? Is there a BX/PX that you can supplement your food. At your weight a safe cut in that fecking heat I would say 2000-2100K Cal (IMO).

    When I was in Iraq I ate loads of; Tuna, chicken breasts, steak, nuts, PB for protien and oats, veg, fruits and whole grains for carbs, took fish or flax for my fats. Did loads of protien drinks because you have little choice sometimes out there.

    I even used beef jerky a lot, but you are cutting and it is high in salt.

    Ratio of carbs, pro and fat, for me is not the standard that most suggest here. play around you have nothing else to do there, to see how your body responds.


    Cheers

    I like to carb cycle, three really low days, one high day, then two moderate days. This works for me, but I always shoot for 1lb per week to keep my mass as much as possible.

    Google Lyle McDonald and he has some good fat loss ideas

    Normally I would say get your pro. from meat, but since you are where you are, shakes are going to have to do it.

    What is the total calories for your day?
    Ever think about doing HIIT instead of plain cardio?
    What is your workout like? Sets, reps, weight?

    2k is good (IMO), I like to do the full body workout 3X per week whilst cutting. Just works better for me. I did workout for whilst in Iraq to, to kill time.
