    I won't have access to a gym to start lifting for about another week. I'm trying to get my diet set. I'm basically having the same thing everyday. Could someone please let me know what changes I need to make? Also, I'm still low on my fats. Everything I'm eating has very little fat, so I'm under 20% from the looks of it. Can anyone recommend what to do to get my fats up? Tablespoon of Olive Oil by itself?

    5'11"
    approx. 205 lbs.
    I'd guess about 23% bf


    current diet (started Monday), about 2400-2500 cal. *Correct me if that should be different.

    1 cup Grape Nuts (no sugar added)
    1 1/3 - 1 1/2 cups skim milk (in cereal)
    1 banana (about 7")
    2 slices whole grain bread (plain)
    1 cup oatmeal (2 cups water, butter added and sometimes honey)
    1 can of tuna (plain/out of can)
    2 tablespoons peanut butter (regular/non-natural)
    32 oz. protein shake (2 16 oz. per day)
    1 glass skim milk (about 10 oz.)
    1 cup Grape Nuts and milk (like above) for dinner

    I just bought a ton of chicken, so I'll be cooking that up tonight.

    Also, taking a multivitamin, Omega-3 suppliment for DHA/EPA, and CLA (it was free with the protein mix).

    Any help would be appreciated. If you need any additional info, let me know. Thanks in advance.
