Is This Enough Food for My Goals?


#1

Goals:

To get stronger and increase my Snatch/C&J + Squat while staying relatively lean. I want to compete in the 69kg or 77kg class.

Current Stats:
29 yr old 5'6 Male 164lbs
BF% is either high teens or low 20s.

Lifts (in lbs):
Snatch-95-5x2
C&J-145-5x1
BS-185-3x5
FS-155-3x5
OHP-120-3x5

This has been my meal plan for past 2 weeks. I wanted to help kick off some fat loss so I decided to cut out the starchy carbs for a bit of time.

BREAKFAST
4 Whole Eggs
1/2 Avocado
1 Banana
1 Whole Cucumber
32oz Water

LUNCH 1
8oz Chicken Breast
2 Cups Mixed greens (Spinach/Lettuce)
1 Bell Pepper
1 Whole Carrot
32oz Water

LUNCH 2
8oz Chicken Thighs (Skinless & Boneless)
2 Cups Mixed greens (Spinach/Lettuce)
1 Bell Pepper
1 Whole Carrot
32oz Water

DINNER
8oz Buffalo or Salmon
2 Cups Mixed Green
1 Whole Tomato
1 Cup Broccoli or other cooked green veggie
32oz Water

Should I push myself with this meal plan until I start stalling on my lifts? And then maybe add in a potato or two each day? Any advice would be appreciated!

Snatch 5x2
