    Good to go?


    About 170lbs right now, looking to start a dedicated cut. Cardio is 4x/week, for now. Please let me know if everything looks good and I can blast off.

    Meal #1 *Between 10 - 11am*
    - Granola bar

    Meal #2 *About 12 noon*
    - Half sandwich (wheat bread, turkey, leaf, tomato, slice of cheese, pickle)
    - Protein shake

    WORKOUT

    Meal #3 *Between 4 - 5pm*
    - Half sandwich (wheat bread, turkey, leaf, tomato, slice of cheese)
    - Protein shake
    - Banana

    Meal #4 *Approx. 7pm*
    - Salad loaded w/ veggies, topped sparsely w/ olive oil and vinegar.
    - Piece of chicken breast.
    - Banana

    Meal #5 *Approx 10-11pm*
    - Cottage cheese
    - OR -
    - Oatmeal

    Two questions:
    1) Is the timing of my meals ok?
    2) When cutting, should I drop my protein shake pre-workout and just use one post-workout, or is 2 a day fine?

    What needs to be changed?

    Very interesting! I would also like to see what others have to say.... I'm also on a cut (first serious one).... I'm doing too shakes a day also and I'm thinking about cutting one out (maybe)..... How tall are you? How long you been working out? I started last Saturday at 190lbs and now I'm 186 around 13%bf ... 5'8" tall.... Good luck.

    what is the macro breakdown of this?
    total cals?
    every meal should have protein, so looking at your first meal, a granola bar doesn't seem to be the best idea.

    what are you eating PWO? is it meal #3? cuz it doesn't seem to be ideal PWO. for PWO you'd want to stick to a protein shake w/ oats.

    also there aren't enough fats in that diet from what I can see.
    do you use fitday?

    Meal #1 *Between 10 - 11am*
    - Granola bar

    Full of sugar - not my choice.
    Hopefully 10am is when you have just got up so you have net been awake for hours and fasting.
    Switch to egg whites and oatmeal made with water for a better option.

    Meal #2 *About 12 noon*
    - Half sandwich (wheat bread, turkey, leaf, tomato, slice of cheese, pickle)
    - Protein shake

    Can you change this for a lean meat and green veggies? If you are seriously trying to cut and are including things like bread and cheese you are going to struggle.

    WORKOUT

    Meal #3 *Between 4 - 5pm*
    - Half sandwich (wheat bread, turkey, leaf, tomato, slice of cheese)
    - Protein shake
    - Banana

    Same point again.

    Meal #4 *Approx. 7pm*
    - Salad loaded w/ veggies, topped sparsely w/ olive oil and vinegar.
    - Piece of chicken breast.
    - Banana

    Nice, although you may want to cut out the banana.

    Meal #5 *Approx 10-11pm*
    - Cottage cheese
    - OR -
    - Oatmeal

    Stick with the cottage cheese, too many carbs in oatmeal before bed.

    If you give your height we can work out your BMR and thus how many cals you need in a day to get good results.

    2nd to this. It's hard to tell without seeing some numbers. You need protein first thing in the morning.

    It's easy for the go since I don't have much time in the morining. What else could you suggest?

    10am is when I get up. Once again, suggestions for something better than a granola bar that can be quick?

    Umm what is wrong w/ a sandwich? Wheat bread? A slice of American?
