Not too shabby!

Here's what I'd do differently

1) I'd add some fish oil (1 capsule per meal)

2) I'd add some fiber in your shakes (flax seeds)

3) I'd add some mixed nuts to your shakes

4) I'd add some fruit or veggies or Greens+ to your shakes

(In general, add some NUTRITION to your shakes -- don't think of just carbs and protein and fat -- think of where you'll get vitamins and minerals too).

5) I'd try to get more whole food protein -- you're talking about 8 scoops of protien powder per day or 160g. I like to see 30% or less of your total protein to come from powders. I think you've got over 50% from powders.

Other than that, it looks good.

The next question -- does it work?

Let us know.
