Critique My Diet


#1

Hey guys and gals,

Currently at 187lb and 6'1. In the third week of v diet and am pretty happy with results. Lost 8.8lbs and being about half way through the diet have been really researching the nutrition side of things. Want to be pretty well prepared when i finish, as i am really new to this nutritional eating thing it is a pretty steep learning curve (eg i knew nothing which is how i got into the shape i was in).

So i have been trying to put together some eating plans/ menus for myself as practice and was hoping someone out there would have a look at one to give me some pointers. Once finished the v diet i was hoping to go onto one of the split programs on the site( probably one of CT's routines) With the goal of still getting leaner while gaining more muscle and have based the eating plan on the 100g carbs so i have mainly concentrated on carbs and protein. Weight is already pretty close to where i want to be but still carrying some fat.
So here is a one day menu for scrutiny.

Had trouble making up the caloric count which is where i added the bacon. This is just my first attempt at something like this so any suggestions would be great as i really want to get better at this and be prepared for life post v diet.
Thanks in advance guys

I'd HIGHLY suggest looking into IF (intermittent fasting). I'm currently doing it, and i absolutely love it. Lots of articles/threads about it.
