    2100 cals.
    80g Fat
    79.8g Carbs
    237g protein


    Workout followed by cardio between meals 3 and 4.

    Meal 1: Protein Shake + Fiber + 1/2 Carton of eggwhites
    Meal 2: Oatmeal + protein shake + 2tbspns PB
    Meal 3: Can of Albacore + 2 tbspns PB
    Meal 4: Protein Shake + Fiber + 1/2 Carton of eggwhites
    Meal 5: Salmon Patty + Cottage Cheese + pepperocinis + 2 hardboiled eggs
    Meal 6: Chicken + Cottage Cheese + pepperocinis + 2 hardboiled eggs



    Weekend:

    2100 cals
    65.5 g Fat
    73.8 g Carbs
    262 g Protein


    Cardio then meal #1, then workout followed by meal 2, evenly spaced rest of day.

    Meal 1: Protein Shake + Fiber + 1/2 Carton of eggwhites + Oatmeal
    Meal 2: Turkey Burger + Cottage Cheese + pepperocinis + 1 hardboiled egg
    Meal 3: Protein Shake + Fiber + 1/2 Carton of eggwhites
    Meal 4: Salmon Patty + Cottage Cheese + pepperocinis + 2 hardboiled eggs
    Meal 5: Chicken + Cottage Cheese + pepperocinis + 2 hardboiled eggs


    Everything is to be assumed to 1 serving of said food group.

    Suggestions?
    I know I could probably cut down on the shakes (egg white + protein shakes) but they are deliscous, one of my favorite meals, so i want to keep those in there.

    Any good suggestions for replacing the hardboiled eggs? I do those to get the fats up, since my peanut butter stays in my fridge at work. And I can't seem to control myself around almonds if I have them at the house.

    The macros might not come out quite on point. Also, the cals might be a touch low for doing cardio nearly everyday, but sometimes i go for a serving and a half of cottage cheese or Peanut butter (all natural of course) and have been getting leaner.

    Whats your weight? If you find that your progressing on this diet then great. If you want to try something new, lower your carbs and up your fat a bit. Personally I would eat more whole foods but if you heart your shakes then knock yourself out.

    5'11", 183-185 or so last time I weighed myself, nearly a month ago (3wks maybe?) but I was obsessing over the scale as much as the mirror, so I put a 1 month nix on the scale :big grin:. Weighing in again on Tuesday.

    I was still seeing good progress so I decided to continue this diet till weigh-in. Thinking about cutting out the oatmeal (27g carbs a day) for next month and going on about under 50 carbs a day.

    How low to hit ketosis, generally?

    Depends on the person. The Palumbo diet posted here a little while back recommends under 40, high protein. I was sub-30g carbs and high protein for over a week (I've heard it can take a week+ to hit ketosis, others say 4 days max) and couldn't do it without reversing my fat/protein ratio. I had to drop to about 1 gram of protein per pound of LEAN body mass, 20-30 grams of carbs. I'm around 60% cals from fat, 35% cals protein.

    Either less carbs and more fat, or less fat and more carbs. You are going low carb, but not low enough for ketosis. But you still don't really have enough carbs to support any sort of workout intensity. You're gonna feel real lethargic and always be hungry with that kind of split IMO.
