whoops i never finished yesterdays post! oh well... i didn't get very many meals in because i was filming for a show and it was a verrrryyyy long shoot and i didn't get to eat! i was STARVING by the end. So forget yesterday, here's today!

40 min slow jogging

10:00
3 egg whites
1/3 c. oatmeal
1/3 scoop protein pwdr
green tea

12:30
3/4 c. cottage cheese

how's this diet? this will probably close to what i'll be eating every day... i'm working on cutting out the coffee but today i had another show to do and i wanted to have energy for it.

What about the rice at 7? Is it ok to eat carbs this late at night on a cut? Please feel free to tweak my diet! I'd appreciate it!

As far as eating right before a workout goes, I've never had a problem with it. I used to lift and do cardio on an empty stomach in the morning (aaaaaagh!) before I learned better. [img]/forum/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img] I would try like a half cup of oatmeal and a scoop of whey, or maybe a few egg whites and a slice of FF cheese. I think that will jack your metabolism WAY past what it is when you first wake up, and you'll have much more energy, making for a more productive workout.

I would try it once or twice and see if your stomach bothers you. Mine never does. I eat around 5:30-5:50am and I'm lifting by about 6:20 am, so there isn't much time for it to settle, but it's ok.

Good luck!

I would trade in the apples for something else. I avoided fruit on my entire last cut and made tremendous progress. Also, I would stay away from carbs your last 2-3 meals. That means move the rice and other carbs up a few meals. Also, it doesn't look to me like your eating enough. How many calories is that? Seems awefully tiny to me from just looking at it.

yeah, my calories are a little low. Being in class all the time kinda makes it hard to eat as much as i need to. I'm trying to slowly raise them though. I really just need to incorporate more fats like natty pb and put some ground flax seeds in my salads. The apples I will cut out in a couple days (still have some in the frige).

What about carrots? They have sugar in them too, but are they ok?

I am not a big fan of carrots, as they are higher in natural sugars, but they're not going to burden you that much. I prefer green veggies most of the time whether bulking or cutting, but that's just me.

Haha, pudding powder in your morning oats. That's cute.
