Diet plan for overweight Bloke...

Hi All,

Is my diet any good for losing weight?  I am starting the gym on monday and want to start lifting....  I am six foot, 234lbs and well out of shape.

When I am dieting (to lose fat), I would usually follow a regime like this: 

Breckie: Bran Flakes, skimmed milk. 

Mid Morning Snack: Fruit 

Lunch: Tuna salad, no dressing 

Afternoon Snack: More fruit / low fat yogurt 

Evening Meal: Boiled chicken and Veg. 

I try and avoid pasta and other carbs... 

All advice welcome as always.

    Hi mate

    congrats on getting down they gym and trying to sort things out, firstly.

    The structure looks pretty good IMO, I'd be inclined to make some small changes

    Breakfast - Oats, skimmed milk, 2 boiled eggs/whey/other protein source

    Mid Morn snack - Fine, but add some protein , maybe some nuts for good fats too

    Lunch - Sounds fine

    Afternoon snack - Sounds ok, just check the sugar in the low fat yoghurt alot of low fat foods are flavoured with more sugar to make up for low fat/ also add some protein here imo

    Eve meal - sounds fine

    Im not an expert, but those are the chnages I'd make, food sources that are best imo are
    Complex carbs - oatcakes, wholmeal breads, sweet pots, oats, basmatti rice, cous cous
    Protein - whey, chicken, fish, nuts, lean meats, eggs
    Fats - eggs, salmon, flaxseeds etc

    hope it helps a little

    like above well done on getting to the gym. i was extreamally out of shape 14 months ago weighing 29st 4lb and now i am 18st7lb and thats after going on a few bulk cycles getting down to 16st7lb.

    with my diet i went high protein low carb and low sugar.

    things you need to becareful of is that the low fat option isnt always the best, if it low fat normally loaded with sugar.

    my diet looked abit like this

    meal 1 50g oats , 4 egg whites 2 whole eggs

    Post Shake

    meal 2 -  5 rice crackers, 150g chicken

    meal 3 - large salad with tuna or chicken

    meal 4 - same as meal 2 with protein shake

    meal 5 - same as meal 3

    meal 6 - 150g lean meat loads of veg

    before bed -  casein shake

    you may what to put up what training you intend on doing as well.

    best of luck
