    I have a few diet questions..


    #1. My breakfast is almost always two scoops of ON whey and two packets of flavored oatmeal (oat cals are about 300 total).

    Is this OK for a breakfast? I eat it pretty consistently.

    #2 About 2-3 hours after breakfast, I eat a snack to hold me over til lunch. It's still early -- so I have trouble stomaching tuna. Lately, I've been eating lots of beef jerky. Is this a healthy enough snack to be eating daily?

    #3 When should I have dinner? Is it OK if I have a heavy meal at say 6:00 p.m., go to the gym at 7 p.m., then maybe have a protein shake or two before I sleep at 10:30? I'm not sure what the effects of eating before working vs. afterwards are. I'm trying to cut right now and find that if I reverse it (light snack before gym ,meal afterwards) that I end up eating a lot.

    The rest of my diet isn't in here because it isn't consistent. My lunch is whatever the cafeteria is serving that day (usually pretty healthy) and I haven't moved out and my dinner varies a lot because I don't buy groceries.

    the beef jerky could be cut back on...ALOT of sodium. unless your not too worried about sodium intake and water retention.

    as for #3....i personally would just eat a smaller dinner and have a mini mean/snack between lunch and dinner.

    but like you're guna hear....read the stickies.

    I've read the stickies. I've been reading F&N daily for the past 8 months ... I just don't post much.

    With #3, I do have the mini-snack/meal between lunch and dinner otherwise I have zero energy to lift weights with. My concern, I suppose is ... is having a protein shake 3 1/2 hours before going to bed too little calories over too long of a time?

    I eat my main dinner at ~6:30, go to the gym an hour later, two scoops of whey and a nutri grain bar after the gym, the a cup or so of cottage cheese before bed. Seems to work fine for me. :dunno:
