I'm gonna start with what my goals are. I'm 190 lbs, 5' 11" on a good day, and I would say I'm about 10-15% body fat (a lil chunky). I'm currently trying to get back to about 175 lbs and spare as much muscle mass as possible. I work out about 4-5 days per week doing your typical splits...Chest/Tri Mon., Back/Bis Tue., Legs Wed., Shoulders Fri or Sat. with ab work thrown in. And for cardio I either play basketball occasionally or at the gym I do 25 mins of inclined walking and about 5-10 mins of a light jog somewhere in between. Now that you know my situation, I want to know if you think this diet fits my goals...
All righty...critique away.
7 a.m. (Breakfast) 280 Cals/25g of protein
3 Scrambled Eggs, a piece of ham, and 2 Flameout.
11-ish a.m. (Snack 1) 110 cals
1:30 p.m. (Lunch) 335 cals/50 grams of protein
2 decent sized chicken breasts w/ some mustard sauce
4:15 (Snack 2) 225 cals/15g protein
A pack of immitation crab sticks and 2 grams CLA
7:00 pm (Dinner)480 cals/30g protein

% of Cals from Protein:31%*
Now obviously, I don't plan to eat this few calories/carbs every day. Today was an off day from the gym. Normally I'd try to get more carbs and cals on days I workout out, especially in the peri/post window.
I'd also be lying if I said my will power allowed me to eat this few calories on all of my off days too...I'm really just looking for tips on what other wholesome, and nutritionally dense foods I should invest in as I'm sure I'm not the first one to try and cut weight in a relitavely small window of time on this site. (Ideally I'll hit my target weight around the beginning of next year) Also, if you feel like soemthing is missing or should be taken out of this diet, let me know.
