Hi everyone, thanks in advance for reading Let me start off with a tiny bit about myself. When I was 16, I lost 60 pounds. I kept it off for a long time, but recent personal events/problems, combined with starting to buckle down and work hard in school has lead me to put it back on. Now I’m 20, 6’2" and 235 pounds. Unfortunately for me, there’s a combination of forgetting a lot of the finer points of diet/work outs, and a need for perfection, which I’ve come to force myself to realize is impossible. Either way, I need your guys’ help with my diet. This is what I have now:
1 (9 AM): 1/4 cup steel cut oatmeal, 3 egg whites, one whole egg, one banana
2 (11 AM): 1 scoop protein powder (ON Optimum Whey), 2 cups water, 1/4 cup walnuts
3 (1 PM): 1 cup brown rice, 4 oz chicken breast, 1 cup carrots
4 (3 PM): 1 red pepper, 1 slice whole grain bread, 1 can of tuna
5 (6 PM): 4 oz 98% Lean Ground Turkey, 1 red potato, 1 cup broccoli
6 (9 PM): 1/2 cup nonfat yogurt, 1/2 cup cottage cheese, 1/2 cup blueberries, 1/2 cup strawberries
This comes to 2,033 calories, 52.0g of fat, 192.2g of carbs, 198.7g of protein
The protein seems a bit low to me, but I’m not sure what to do about that without eating a ton of chicken/tuna a day lol.
Now, as for the workouts, can anyone suggest a routine that is good for cutting?
