hey guys..im pretty new to the board, but i would like some input to my current cutting diet..

im about 5'7, 185lbs and roughly 12-13%bf right now...would like to bring it down under 10%

here is my current diet:

4:00am (pre-cardio)
1/2 scoop ON whey
1tb glutamine
water
coffee with 1 tsp splenda

5:00am
1 slice WW bread w/ 1tsp organic strawberry preserves
1.5 scoops ON whey

8:15am
6oz tilapia
1/3 cup of rice
1 cup broccoli

11:30am
7oz chicken breast
1.5 cups broccoli

2:30pm
6oz tilapia
1/3 cup rice
1 cup broccoli

5:00pm (pre-workout)
1 scoop ON whey
1 tsp glutamine

7:15pm (post-workout)
1 scoop ON whey
1 scoop whey/casein blend protein by EAS
2 slices white bread with 1 tsp strawberry preserves

8:15pm
either
big bowl of spring mix greens
6oz chicken breast
1 tblspoon of olive oil
5 tblspoon red wine vinegar
or
3oz chicken breast
1/2 bell pepper
1/2 red onion
2 egg white
2 whole eggs

9:30pm (pre-bed)
1 scoop whey/casein EAS protein

everything is measured with a measuring cup and scale so these numbers are fairly accurate. my metabolism used to be pretty slow, but ive slowly been able to improve that by eating frequent meals.

any help is appreciated. thanks

Okay... there is no need for 9 meals aday at your weight.

First thing is to drop meal one (half a scoop of protein) do your cardio on empty stomach first thing. This is the one of the best ways to burn fat because there is no food in ur system u tap in to fat right away, opposed to burning the cals from ur first meal. You CAN have coffee if you like,

Your 5 o clock meal should be about half a cup of oats and whey. (drop the bread)


11:30 drop the chicken to about 5-6 oz u dont need 61-65 grams of protein at ur bdy weight

Post workout id use 2 scoops of whey + vitagro...or waxy maize ( drop the bread)

if ur eating at 8:30 there is no need for the 9:30 meal...

Faiz made some good points but definatly drop some of your shakes. Have just one scoop of whey protein post-training. Add some fruits and get more variety with your veggies.

Sort of agreed, I think oats are a better cutting food because they're more filling, but I know you're saying this because of the difference in GI, which doesn't matter.

My suggestions,

the pre cardio meal is good, keep that. You'd probably be much better off with more solid foods though, ie, why don't you eat like 1 egg and 5 egg whites or something after cardio instead of whey?

my metabolism used to be pretty slow, but ive slowly been able to improve that by eating frequent meals.

This is just a myth, its not true.

Hey there,
Your regime is great, except for a few potholes.
Like that fact that the intake of rice in your list is very high. It is usually advised to weight watchers to completely let go of rice.
Also, can you please make it to having only one egg insread of two. Beat ii up properly to a nice, rich fluff before you set it to fry.
