Doing a 3 day push\pull\legs split. cardio will be done 4X per week - 45 minutes low intensity treadmill. Lemme know what you think:

    5:00
    4oz chicken or steak
    1 cup broccoli
    1 cup whole wheat pasta
    8:00

    I like your caloric breakdown. Meals are laid out and timed nicely. I take it your 8:00-8:30 shake is your post workout shake. If your could stick to that type of eating day-in and day-out for 6 months, then great. Personally, I would get tired of that diet after awhile. But, I' also as dedicated as I should be. Maybe think of some alternatives meals to mix it up a bit. I think you're going to get hungry on your workout days before bed with two shakes back-to-back. Maybe try some cottage cheese, or a different protein/fat source. Also, think of a good "reward" meal to stick in there once a week to give yourself a meal to look forward to.

    By the way, how much weight/bf are you wanting to lose? I'm going to begin a cutter come next month. Hoping to dump around 4-5%. I know I'll lose some muscle (and I hate the thought of it) but, I'm going to set up for a good bulk maybe in Jan/Feb.

    Best of luck to you.

    yup - thats my PW shake. Thats pretty much an outline for me - like i will sub chicken for the tuna - or brown rice for the oatmeal. i just need something structured to look at so i know abouts how much of what i need to eat for each meal. Cottage cheese is definitely a sub for last meal of the day and if i get too hungry i will just add some more protein. My reward meal will be BBQ every saturday - unlimited steak ( i know i am wierd - but steak is more of a treat to me than sugar or candy especially a good rib eye or filet that i notmally would not eat bc of the fat). i am not looking at weight or BF anymore. I have some love handles and chest fat i want to get rid of - that is my goal. I will be starting a testE\trenE\winny cycle in about a month - so if this diet is going well for me, i will prob just up the cals by 500 or so and take it from there.

    I'm in the same boat there.

    Also, gotta love those rib eyes. I burned one up the other night while I was home alone. Now, I'm hungry.
