    What do you guys think of my recomp diet ?


    Im currently 5 foot 9 190 pounds. I train 5 days on two days off. I just finished up my 1st bodybuilding show a month ago and took some time off to give my body a break. Im getting back into things now and was just looking for opinions on my currant diet routine. My diet looks like this :

    Meal 1 (pre workout) - 1 cup of oats mixed with 2 scoops of whey isolate protein

    Meal 2 (post workout)- 10 servings of liquid egg whites and 1 medium size sweet potato

    Meal 3- 8 oz of chicken breast, small sweet potato, brocolli, 1 tbsp of flax seed oil

    Meal 4- same as meal 3 (no flax seed oil)

    Meal 5- same as meal 3 and 4 (no flax seed oil)

    Meal 6 (Pre bed)- 16 oz of chicken breast with light BBQ sauce, 1 tbsp of flax seed oil
    (I know i eat alot of chicken but I love eating it!)

    Supplements I will be using:
    -Triple strength omeg 3 fish oil
    -whey isolate
    -multivitamin
    -CLA with MCT
    -Alpha Lipolic Acid

    Looks good to me. I'd personally need to switch my carb and protein sources up a little. Will your macros change depending on your workouts?

    You need far more fats IMO. 2 tbsp flaxseed oil + trace fats has you at pretty dangerously low levels (what is that, like 25g?). I see you get omega 3s via supplement/flaxseed, but you need to work on getting your 6s, MUFAs, saturated fats, etc..

    Fat is crazy low, bump that up for sure. I've seen best results while carb cycling when my goal is "recomping"
