Workout schedule?

We can't help you on a diet if we don't even know these few things.


A lot More green veggies would be good. Some fruit would be good.
Less shakes more steaks. Lean steak, chicken, turkey. Not deli if you can help it.
Fish, you don't have too much EFA there.


Even without your stats, I think it is prety safe to say that more vegetables couldn't hurt.


I didn't notice what you were drinking either? A lot of milk with your shakes? Any calorie containing beverages? Soda, juice?
You should be getting a lot of water and maybe some gatorade when you train.


Drinking alot of water. I dont' have that much money plus I got a tight shecdule for school. I'm working out 3-4x a week and cardio inbetween days. I'm want to lean up. I'm 208 lbs 5'11 17 going on 18 years old. Guess I could add some lettuce with meal 2


Also I am taking fish oil and sesathin oil. Also I will switch chicken breast with salmon every once in a while


For fat loss, I would replace the whole wheat in your last meal for a fat source (instead of carbs).
Also, focus on better post workout nutrition, take some maltodextrine/dextrose with your whey for example and eat the oats with more whey about an hour later.
