    I am trying to come up with a good diet that will help me keep my muscle mass while cutting. This is my current plan..

    Breakfast

    10 eggwhites
    1 cup oats cooked with milk


    Mid morning

    1 Chicken breast - Grilled


    Lunch

    1 Chicken breast - Grilled
    1 Cup Broccoli - steamed

    Pre workout - 2 scoops Protein

    Post workout - 2 scoops protein + one cup oats cooked w/ water


    Dinner

    1 Chicken breast - Grilled
    1 Cup Broccoli - steamed

    Before Bed

    1 cup lowfat cottage cheese w/ fruit (premade)


    Fitday totals are:

    cals - fat - carb - protein
    1916 - 30 - 101 - 300

    Stats - ~220 + - a few depending on day 5'6.5


    The cals look alrite to me.. maybe a little low? Not sure what I am gonna eat on days I am not lifting (I'll most likely lift 5 days and do low intensity cardio 2 days a week for 45 min). Any advice is appreciated. Last time I cut I lost quite a bit of muscle mass.. then again I didn't have much at the time. Trying to preserve the muscle I have put on since then.

    Seems a little low in calories for your weight.

    You are gonna eat the same thing day-in and day-out?

    It might be easier to keep if you have more foods in there, unless you are really motivated.......

    I'll start mixing it up once I get situated in my new apartment. I am used to dull menus though. I had a pretty boring diet last time I cut (9 months of pretty much the same shit day in and day out). I'm gonna try and get some fish and beef in there though.

    Only thing i'd recomend is upping the healthy fat intake. Otherwise it looks good to me.

    I took out a shake and added 1 oz of almonds at lunch/dinner for more healthy fats. Oh and I took out the pre-bed fruit (just lowfat cottage cheese now).

    totals come out to:

    cals - fat - carb - protein
    2005 - 58 - 95 - 272

    there's a study in which athletes who ate carbs before bed lost just as much fat, but lost less muscle

    First off.. thanks for not reading my fucking thread. Like I mentioned earlier. The chicken will be substituted with lean beef/pork/and fish once I get situated in my apartment.
