Dumb diet/workout question:
I am 31, 6’6", and weight 330 pounds (read: tall and fat). Obviously I need to lose weight. A large amount of weight. I worked out very seriously in my youth, but work, beer, pizza, and general laziness have brought me to this point. Time to change, or I am going to die soon.
So, I have read the t-dawg 2.0 nutrition plan and have been working to adapt that to a bloke my size and weight. Can you guys critique what I am doing?
8:30am Meal 1: Protein shake with a non-fat yogurt, fruit, and water.
11:00am Meal 2: Tuna, carrots, and a small whole wheat pita.
1:00pm Meal 3: 2 chicken breasts, mixed vegetables.
4:00pm Meal 4: HPLC bar (45g protein 11g carb)
6:00pm Meal 5: 25g beef jerky
8:30pm Meal 6: Baked Fish/chicken/beef with veges.
I am drinking about 1.5 - 2 gallons of water a day.
This diet gives me about 2300 - 2500 cal, with 105-110g carbs, 315-320g protein, and about 80 - 85g fat.
I usually work out first thing in the morning (6:30am) after a couple of glasses of water. My workouts go like this:
Mon: Morning lower body, evening easy cardio
Tuesday: Morning HIIT cardio, evening easy cardio
Wednesday: Morning upper body, evening easy cardio
…and so on. I have Sunday off and just do the above pattern.
How does all of this sound for weight loss?
Any/all help greatly appreciated. Tear it to bits.
