    As many calories as who?

    Is this what you are doing now or what you intend to do?

    IMO nobody will be able to get your diet right - its gonna be trial and error from yourself. Although people may be able to give pointers in terms of timing and content of meals etc.


    If you are wanting to drop body fat... my first thing to suggest would be cardio ( you dont mention it )

    Much agreed with Massfactor on cardio. You basically have to ensure you are burning more calories daily than your consuming. Keep protein intake high, moderate carbs and low fat. I would suggest (at the very least) cardio 3 x a week for 25-30 mins. Don't do cardio before lifting, always do it afterwards: on a diiferent day to weights is even better if poss.

    I'd say keep protein intake fairly high but moderate carbs and moderate fat.

    Amount of carbs/fat and their timing will depend on your activity.

    I normally time carb intake around my workouts to give me enough energy for a productive weights session and adequate recovery.

    I also time fat intakes around times when im not active or post AM cardio.


    Don't do cardio before lifting, always do it afterwards: on a diiferent day to weights is even better if poss.


    Agree here. But i can definately recommend AM cardio - you can even do this on a weights day provided there is sufficient gap between the two (ie train with weights in the evening) and you fuel appropriatley for the weights session.

    How many grams of carbs do I need do you think?


    I honestly couldn't give you a number. Im not sure anyone else would be able to give you an accurate one. As they have absolutley no idea of how many cals your burning / energy levels etc ... everyone is different.

    Trial and error is the way forward IMO. Are you reaching your goals? Do you have enough energy? Are you weights sessions still productive (no significant loss of strength etc)

    Adjust intake of food accordingly.

    Yes I am doing the above diet now I have been for 2 weeks.


    So how is it going then?
