Pimp My Diet - Critiques Please!
Hi guys, first post here from a longtime reader.
Age - 24
Height - 6'1"
Weight - 195lbs
BF - 15% (est)
Have been training off and on for about 5 years, solidly for the last 9 months in which I've gained about 18lbs, adding a couple of % BF in the process. Looking to cut down a bit, ideally to around 10% BF or less (I know some might say I should bulk more first but for me getting the BF down is priority at the moment). Started this diet last week, protein and calorie figure are my rough guesses:
Item, Protein, Calories
0730 2 Scoops Whey in Water, 35g, 150cals
0830 2 Wholemeal Toast + Spread, 10g, 200cals
0830 Pint Skimmed Milk, 20g, 195cals
1100 1/2 Protein Bar, 25g, 175cals
1100 Banana, 100cals
1230 Chicken Breast, Potatoes, Veg, 40g, 450cals
1500 1/2 Protein Bar, 25g, 175cals
1500 25g nuts, 10g, 150cals
1500 Apple, 100cals
1800 2 Scoops Whey in Water, 35g, 150cals
1800 10ml Flaxseed Oil, 120cals
1830 Weights (Mon/Wed/Fri)
1830 Cardio (Tues/Thus/Sat)
1930 PWO 2 Scoops Whey, 35g, 150cals
2030 Tuna Steak, Wholemeal Pasta, 40g, 450cals
1130 2 Scoops Whey in Water, 35g, 150cals
Totals 310g, 2715cals
Concerned that my overall calorie intake is too high for a cutting diet, what do the rest of you think? Where could I cut a few calories out - perhaps skip the late night shake? Any other general advice is much appreciated. I'm planning to run clen and ECA (2 week alternate cycles for a total of 8 weeks) for a little extra help.
Training is a 3 day split Mon/Wed/Fri, approx 1 hour. Cardio is 40-50 mins Tue/Thu/Sat, generally jogging or rowing.
Look forward to hearing your thoughts,
