    is this a bulking diet or a shredding diet?


    first off im 5'11 213 i currently gained about 40lbs in the last year thanks to quitting smoking but before that i was a serious hard gainer.now im looking to just cut the fat and gain the muscle but stay about the same weight. does this diet reflect the goals im trying to achieve?

    10am 8 egg whites 2 pieces of wheat toast

    12pm 1 orange and a cup of cottage cheese 1% milk fat

    2pm 2 packages of seasoned tuna on wheat toast

    4pm 2 chicken breasts cup of brown rice cup of green beans

    6pm protein shake and another orange

    8pm either 2 stripsteaks,2chicken breasts,or 2 salmon fillets with a cup of veggies and a cup of rice

    10pm 2 packages of tuna

    i lift 3 days a week and do cardio 30min 5 days a week

    supplements -im currently taking just phosphagen and the protein shakes.

    any comments or tips would be greatly appreciated thank you

    looks like you can cut on that ... i would throw in some flaxseed oil to get some EFA in there because at the moment you have almost no fat ... why white toast in the morning?

    I thinks that is more of a lean bulk. Depends on your body type. Drop the white toast and put in a bowl of oatmeal, and up your good fats.

    Just my general observation; correlate your meal plan into actual data (macronutrients) rather than a menu. I always use an excel spread sheet when planning my diet. I input the values first and then select the food choices to meet my values. I am a minimalist and eat for nutritional purposes rather than pleasure so my menu is not for everyone.

    If you are looking to loose weight than eat at about 10-12x BW (depending on metabolism), with protein at least 1g/lb BW, fat at about 20% calories (I go with 20% because I eat a lot of EFA) and the balance from low GI CHO. Depending on your response to CHO you can raise the protein and reduce the carbs. Eat a majority of your carbs around your workouts.

    Ultimately your need a caloric number (in addition to a nice menu) to go with your BW weight so you have values to adjust to reach your goals.

    JMO...good luck
