    tracking every little thing as i go is starting to get old, so yesterday i decided to try a little bit of a new approach. I wrote up a meal plan based on things i have and generally eat and i'm going to follow this for a while, rather then logging things on the fly and trying to adjust on a daily basis based on what i've eaten.

    this is for 2500 calories which should put me in a small deficit.

    meal 1
    1/2 cup oats
    1sc whey + 20g mass meal (until i finish what i have left, then 1.5sc whey)
    8oz carb countdown
    2 fish oil

    meal 2
    1 cup all-bran cereal (30g fiber, i realized i was getting almost no fiber in my diet)
    6 oz carb countdown

    pre-workout
    1 sc whey
    1 banana

    post-workout
    2 sc whey
    40g maltodextrin

    meal 3
    .25 cup egg
    .25 cup egg white
    (i use the honeyville grain dried egg powders)

    meal 4
    8oz chicken breast tenders
    1 bx green giant spinach
    50g anabolic innovations protein cookie
    2 fish oil

    meal 5
    50g peanut butter or equivalent peanuts/almonds

    meal 6
    1 sc ultra peptide
    1 sc whey
    8oz carb countdown
    32g peanut butter
    2 fish oil

    total ~ 2500 cals, 300p, 200c, 80f

    i'm still tweaking it so if anyone has any feedback go ahead

    As long as it fits in the macros he's set for himself, it doesn't matter. It won't make you gain weight by default, it's just very dense calorically.

    1) yes i green giant frozen spinach, no sauce. sometimes i get the brocolli.

    2) way better then ON's casien, i'll tell you that much. I mix everything in a blender so i have no idea how well it would work in a shaker or with a spoon.

    3) one of the best purchases i've made. it's cheap (although they raised their prices on the whites :mad: ), really convenient, doesn't go bad, and tastes pretty damn close to fresh eggs when scrambled. You can also use the egg white powder in shakes if you want egg protein..

    those cookies are amazing, once you figure out how to cook them just right. cook them too long, like i did with the first sample i got, and they are pretty bad. Nutritionally they are really good too, the only ingredients in them are whey isolate, milled flax seed, vanilla, baking soda, + non-sugar chocolate chips.

    i'm not really, this is more of a maintenance plan for the rest of the summer ... slight deficit during the week to hopefully make up for a lack of a structured diet + drinking on 3 of 4 weekends per month during the summer. I'm holding pretty steady around 175.

    There's not a lot of veggies but it looks solid otherwise.

    Chris, that looks awesome.

    If you had to modify it by:

    a) taking out the delicious anabolic cookie
    b) upping it from 2500cals --> ~3000cals

    In what areas would you add/remove things? Protein/carbs are fine as long as the ratios stay relatively the same.

    Thanks for any help/input.

    you mix with milk but only around 1-2 teaspoons. i use carb countdown since that's what i have.

    it's actually 2530 calories, one place where you may have estimated high is the whey that i use is 100 calories per scoop.

    i would add it mostly in the form of more carbs and fats, 300g of protein is more than enough unless you are over 200lbs. i'd probably have 1 cup of oats instead of 1/2 at meal 1 and probably more peanut butter overall. Maybe 1 more scoop of whey, with meal 2.
