Well, post a sample of what your current diet looks like.

This is working really well for me right now:

In fact, I’m pretty close to working up to 3500-4000 kcal/day and doing a slow bulk, and I’m going to do use the same outline with more calories. Less carbs on rest or conditioning days, more carbs on lifting days. Carbs morning and PWO only. Simple, easy, and effective.

Very detailed, My diet for weight loss looks like this:

Breakfast (~6:45am):
3 omega-3 eggs, handful of spinach + handful of onions (mixed in with eggs), slice of bread w/ butter or low carb tortilla, 1 scoop of whey, 8 oz coffee, 8 oz water/crystal light to wash down my Flameout and multivitamin

Mid-Morning Snack (~10 am):
Apple, Orange, and Mozzarella String Cheese or Plain Nonfat Yogurt w/ Blueberries

Lunch (~12:30):
Chicken or Beef w/ Broccolli or Spinach Salad w/ Homemade Olive Oil and Vinegar Dressing and more fish oil(I’ve been sticking w/ the brocolli lately)

Mid-Afternoon Snack (~3:00-4:00):
More Chicken or Beef w/ Brocolli
Oatmeal + 1 Scoop Whey (Lifting Days)

Peri + Post Workout:
1/2 serving Surge during 1/2 after (Lifting Days)
1/2 serving Surge (Interval Days)
nothing (Rest Days)

More meat and veggies, might make fish or turkey burger on bun on lift day

ZMA+Bunch of Water+Flameout+Multivitamin

(I was taking cottage cheese and cassein, but eliminated the calories and my protein intake is usually pretty good and eliminated the calcium for no ZMA interference)

Its usually 2000 kcal(rest), 2200 (interval), 2400 (lift). I take a few liberties on the weekends with my carbs PWO only though, and it can be more varied during the week. I’ve been throwing in Havarti cheese and some tomatoes/sun dried tomatoes if I make a salad. I’ll only cheat if I feel extremely beatup, but that is about every 3 weeks. Theres a lot of room for improvement as well, but that is basically how it is. I got Dr. John Berardi’s precision nutrition the other day so I’m going to experiment with more meat and veggie meals.

50lbs is a nice drop in weight, so congratulations and keep it up. The gyst of my diet is low carb throughout the day, except pre and pwo. Recovery drink and maybe some more carbs after workouts only. I’m losing about a lb a week, nice and slow and probably have put on a 1 lb. of lean mass as well, but its hard to tell from my scale.
