    I'm 5'8, 190lbs, about 25% bodyfat. I play a few sports, workout 3-5 times a week, etc. But, I need to really shape up my nutrition, which is really keeping me from slimming down, getting toned, etc.

    I'm limiting myself to 2500 calories per day (or should I go for 2000?). What should my daily intake be for the value below? (in the parenthesis is the default setting of the app Nutrition Value that I downloaded. It needs to be adjusted. What's really getting to me is the cholesterol/sodium. At mid point of today, I'm way over my daily settings for both.)

    Daily Fat (65g)
    Daily Saturated Fat (20g)
    Daily carbs (200g)
    Daily fiber (25g)
    Daily protein (100g)
    Daily cholesterol (300mg)
    Daily sodium (1500mg)
    Daily Sugars (40g)


    Any other thoughts are appreciated. I really need to get my nurtition on the right track. :wavey:

    Thanks. I saw that already, and that fitness routine/diet is more suited for someone who's trying to put on a lot of mass...or at least that's what it seems to my untrained eye. My goal isn't building mass, but building endurance, getting toned and increasing my endurance overall. For my workout, I do a combination of Crossfit routines, and I get occasional help from a trainer if I am no certain about some exercise.

    I wasn't bashing it. I was simply making an observation, since that routine is very different from what I'm currently doing. That's why I said '...to my untrained eye..." :wavey:

    i'd start around:

    285g protein
    100g carbs
    85g fat

    And adjust from there. Stop worrying about sodium and shit.

    :wavey: Thanks Ceaze. Do you recommend I try this for a certain period, see how it works, then adjust from there?
