First of all just want to say - Love this forum
So I am having trouble losing my gut and fat around my chest.
I am 6'2", 230lbs, 22% fat
I am on the road pretty much every week and I decided to change my diet - Please criticize or HELP me fixing my diet,
Upon Waking - Protein Shake
Breakfast - Oats
Brunch time - Protein Shake
Lunch - Subway oven roasted Chicken 6"
Afternoon snack - Protein Shake
Post workout - Protein Shake
Dinner - Subway oven roasted Chicken 6"
Before Bed - Protein Shake
Protein = around 300gms
Carb = around 150 gms
Fat = around 25 gms
Workout = Lift 1 hour and 30 minutes cardio 5 days a week
I am not losing an inch but my weight tend to fluctuate though....
What am I doing wrong???

You may be taking in too many protein shakes for your body to handle. My suggestion would be to get more protein from real lean sources... Chicken breast, turkey etc. and rely less on shakes. Use a shake after lifting for muscles to absorb. Spike that insulin after weights and down it. Eating on the road sucks! I have a tough time finding lean clean food when I'm not home so I feel ya. Another thing.... And pretty important.... Subway for dinner.... Bread will spike your insulin ... Unless your working out you don't need to do that. Could cause fat stores. Get carbs earlier in the day and lean protein from good food for dinner. Have a carb cutoff time at night. Rock on man!

Also I like me you are into consulting ? Have you considered IF, that thing absolutely rocks, my routine is probably built for that and it let's me manage my meals real well without hassles.
Am sorry I never posted my diet , if I did half the forum would block me .
Just to give u an idea , it's a real chape arse diet that won't help anyone who is into building or lifting as such.

Rotisserie chickens man.
You stay at a hotel? Use their grill. Most hotels come with refrigerators buy 5lbs of chicken and grill you up some chicken. Grab some fresh fruit and spinach. Eat handfuls of spinach it's good for you.
Too many protein shakes...

This and this !
Shakes (Carb Control ones from EAS)
Peanut Butter from a nearby Fresh Market or whole foods. Grind it yourself, none of the bottled hocus-focus. I must say I like almond butter more though.
If you do not have a kroger/shoprite kind of a place near you, consider going to Wendy's and asking for a Grilled Breast or two. They are usually a couple of quid a pop.
(Also if you are staying at the same hotel week in and week out, drop a bag with them with your stuff so that you can travel light)
