    Ok, so I took some of the suggestions that people gave me here and logged some more of my daily diet and this is what I'm looking like right now


    Wake up - 6:15am

    Cardio - 6:45am - 7:30am

    Breakfast - 7:45am - 380 calories
    Omelette (4 parts egg white, 2 parts whole eggs) ~ 240 cals
    Oatmeal (1/2 cup) - 140 cals

    Protein Shake 1 - 10:30am - 560 calories
    3 Scoops of ON Whey - 72 grams of protein, 360 cals
    2 Tablespoons of Natural Peanut Butter - 200 cals


    Snack - 1:30pm - 175 calories
    Can of Tuna - 175 cals

    Protein Shake #2 - 4:00pm - 560 calories
    3 Scoops of ON Whey - 72 grams of protein, 360 cals
    2 Tablespoons of Natural Peanut butter - 200 cals

    Dinner - 6:30pm - Around 400 calories
    Steak or Chicken + Veggies, usually around 400 calories

    Gym - 7:30pm or 8pm

    Postworkout Shake - 9:00pm (or right when I get back from working out
    THIS IS WHAT I NEED HELP ON. RIGHT NOW IT'S JUST ON WHEY.
    What should I do to bump up my carb intake? Can I just down a bowl of oatmeal as soon as I get home?

    Snack - 12:00am (right before bed) - 160 calories
    Cottage Cheese (1 cup).



    Total Calorie Intake is approximately 2235, not including my post-workout shake which I still need to nail. With my current Post-workout shake it's looking around 2,600 calories a day.

    How are my macro splits looking to everyone? Suggestions? Am I a faggot?

    Are you cutting or bulking?
    First meal is flawed, I would also add in more protein, say 8egg whites, and 1whole egg

    Also eating 72g of Protein, in one sitting from whey isn't ideal. Get more real food, also throw in ALOT more vegetables like 1can of fibrous greens with every meal.

    Change up your last meal to 2cups of cottage cheese, and post workout shake isn't that big of a deal. Just use whey, you don't need a 400-600cal post workout shake if your dieting.

    Ideally 2:1 carb:protein ratio PWO is good. I take a cup of oats with 2 scoops of whey.
    I would rely on whole food more since about half of your cals come from shakes... Or at least get a decent multi/fish oil.
    I'd add more veggies/fruits.
    If you feel fine on this diet and it helps you reach your goal, it's all that matters.

    Ok, I'll give that a shot

    I can do the can thing, but unfortunately because of the way my job is structured and where it is, it's extremely difficult for me to eat more real food over there :hs:

    Trust me, I wish I could eat more "real" food consistently. Should I bump down the shakes to 2 scoops and just take an extra one during the day?

    Sweet jesus. 2 cups of cottege cheese? Really.


    Fuck.

    Bulking or cutting?
    Precook all your meals and throw them in the fridge over night and just keep one with you and the rest in a work fridge if you have one
    I just grab a can of green beans, open it, drain it, and throw a shit ton of pepper on it and its doable at that point
    You could just be like me and use casien protein + fish oil

    Right now bulking. Not balls to the wall bulking, but bulking nonetheless.

    No work fridge. Maybe I should go buy one of those mini-fridges

    I've been doing the same with tuna. Large can of tuna + stone ground mustard

    I'm going to look into that. 2 cups of cottage cheese is making me yack a bit in the mouth.

    Yea whey, and oatmeal is fine
    I just use an ice pack, and one of those thermos totes things. You can also make your own beef jerky outta top loin steak and its easy and fast to eat.http://homecooking.about.com/library/archive/blbeef98.htm
    More power to you, I cant stand tuna

    Every time I decide to "be a man" and buy some cottage cheese, I end up putting a little in my mouth and it takes me 5 minutes to swallow it :rofl:

    My girlfriend loves the stuff, I can't get past the texture and the sour milk smell/taste.

    I can do a cup, but 2 cups is asking a bit much.
