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
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 )
turky sandwich slices
hamburger patties with cheese
cottage cheese ( low fat i dunno ? )
them small quaker oats oatmeal packets ( each with 26 or 28 carbs )
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.

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.

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.
