    First off i'm 6'5" about 260....I'm trying to lose weight but also trying to make sure I don't burn muscle (or at least a minimum amount). I've been on this specific diet for two weeks and just want to make sure it's not lacking anything or needs adjusting...

    breakfast
    oatmeal, 'bout 1/2 cup

    mid-morning
    protein shake

    lunch
    chicken sandwich or something similar with chicken

    afternoon
    apple and protein shake

    pre-workout
    Clif bar
    http://www.clifbar.com/eat/eat.cfm?location=bar

    post-workout
    protein shake

    dinner
    chicken variation....wrap, sandwich, salad, etc. Apples as well.

    Now I'm more interested in losing weight and my workouts consist of at least 20 minutes straight cardio and 1 1/2 hours basketball. I'm trying to adjust to doing cardio in the morning and then weights/basketball at night but weights just hasn't been a huge priority for me so kind of difficult to get focused.

    Anything you guys notice off-hand I might be doing that could be tweaked?

    Thanks! :wiggle:

    where are the fats? you don't list any.

    protein with breakfast.

    what time is dinner? you need to eat something before you go to sleep to give your body nutrients during the night. healthy fats and lean protein.

    make weights a priority. you're going to lose weight plenty of weight if you don't lift, however, do you really want to be 30 pounds less at the same bf% you are now? weights should be priority # 1. It will increase fat loss and greatly assist in muscle retention.

    I use some salad dressing on dinner things....:hs:

    Dinner is about 7-7:30 and usually have an apple around 9 cuz I've been waking up hungry in the middle of the night.

    I'm definitely going to start putting weights #1, it's just been difficult getting out of the mentality of 'scale numbers are everything :noes:'....:sad2:

    salad dressing is not the type of fat you want. There are some healthy fat sources listed in the noob thread. Things like almonds, peanut butter, olive oil...just watch the quantity, calories from these things add up quick. You also need EFA's. Supplementing fish oil caps is the easiest way to do this.

    an apple before bed is not the way to go. replace that with a few almonds and a cup of 1% cottage cheese (or something similar - heathly fat and protein, whey is not the best choice here though) 30 minutes before you go to sleep

    Never eat carbs by themselves, its asking to be turned into fat, like most people have said, eat some protein with your breakfast.

    Hello Jakey!

    Chris3G already said everything I would've said :o

    From a girl POV- let me just really encourage you to stop worrying about scale weight. I weigh about 15 more pounds now overall than I did in college..but I'm smaller measurements-wise. Lift hard, eat well, use cardio judiciously unless you're an endurance weenie like me :wavey:

    insert low sodium V8 juice in there somewhere mang.

    Also, 1/2 cup of oatmeal for breakfast? :hsugh: I wouldnt even dirty the dish for that. you're probably taking in more because 1/2 cup prepared or not is a tiny portion. Up it to 1 cup.

    Protein. You should always get protein since the body can't store it like it does with fat/carbs. If your body is in a calorie deficit, it will most likely use some protein as an energy source at a certain extent and you better have amino acids in your blood flow so that it takes from there instead of eating muscles.

    The body can store ANYTHING as fat if you eat too much of it.
