  2. Instead of the instant baked apple oats just use old fashion oats, I mix with cinnamon and splenda. I eat at least a cup a day of 0 fat cottage cheese. I'm sure some people would tell you to eat more veggies(salad at meal 3). I personally would not eat the pasta as my last meal. I usually eat one of my servings of cottage cheese plus some other protein. Go to fitday.com ( I think) and plug in your menu and get a ratio breakdown. Record your menu daily...you'll become alot more concientous of what u eat. Alot of people here recommend 40-40-20 macro breakdown. Do a lot of diet searching and also on the lifting part...work your legs. I don't really understand why you would only lift upper body. Anyways hope that helps.

  3. Ok - so I edited out the Barilla Omega 3 Pasta and substitued cottage cheese as the last meal of my day.

    Should I put the pasta somewhere else?

    Can someone recommend a shake to use? Should I even be using a shake? MR or Isolate?

    Any good dinner choices? Not sure I want to eat skinless chicken for lunch and dinner (meal 3 and 5) every day.
    Maybe put the Barilla Omega 3 Pasta there instead?

    Does ordering of meals matter?

    I can eat meal 1 at the same time everyday

    Some days I will work 7a - 3p
    Others I will work 3p - 9p

    No microwave at work. Do have a fridge.

    I figure I can eat the w/w bread, oats (can you just eat oats plain? I don't care if its bland as hell), celery, carrots, protein shake.

    Oh well, I'll figure that out after I get my diet to the point where you guys think it will be ok

    You could move the chicken to dinner and eat a can of tuna for lunch. You could also move the pasta to earlier in the day. WHen will u be working out? Eat some carbs after your workout. You'll have to just get to know your body. I could tell you to use a 40/40/20 split w/3000 calories, but what you may really need is a 45/35/20 split w/3500 cals.
