    Okay, just put everything into fitday that I plan to eat tomorrow (so far).
    My comp won't do a screen shot cut and paste, so i'll break it down.

    My goal is to get down to 10-9%bf, I figure I'm at about 12-14 right now @ 5'11" 184.

    Total Calories: 1896
    Fat: 69.5g 32%
    Carbs: 106.8g 21%
    Protein: 221.7g 47%

    5-6 meals with the majority of my carbs coming from fruit in the first 4-6 hours of the day.
    I don't know? Are my carbs too high for my goals(if so I can cut out some high carb fruits)?
    Also, I'm going to figure out where to get some more clean calories, judging from the stickies I think I should be in the 2100-2300 range while cutting.

    What should I change to see optimal results?

    Fruit = simple carbs Whole Grain = Complex

    Fruit's carbs are mostly sugar, you just want to keep those around your workouts. If at all when you're trying to cut. Limit yourself to 1-2 servings of fruit a day.

    You should also consider running/swimming as well. Running is proven to be the best way to lose fat.

DId a 10K bout a month ago, did a 4 mile pub run last saturday, drink a guiness at every mile marker (i know thats not what you meant, lol, 33 mins 12 secs including drink stops--woohoo) followed up with a 5 miler on sunday.

    Protein: 221.7g 47%

    So then these percentages look good? 107g of carbs isn't too much for trying to get lean? I should just get better carbs.
    Want to make sure i'm on track before i put a whole month into meticulously watching my macro numbers.
