I live in deep South Texas and I stopped at a nutrion store called ?ea? Nutrition "don't wanna get sued if they're reading this post". They do a free diet consultations with a purchase of one of their products over 50 dollars. A young dude, probably in his early twenties wrote this out:
Meal 1 at or about 7:30 am : 2 scoops of protein (50 grams) and 1/2 cup of oat meal
Meal 2 at or about 10:30 am : 5 oz. of lean ground beef, 5 oz of sweet potatoes, 1 cup of greens
Meal 3 at or about 1:30 pm : 2 scoops of protein and 2 rice cakes with a teaspoon of natural peanut butter
Meal 4 at or about 4:30 : 5 oz. chicken breast, 5 oz of sweet potatoes, 1 cup of greens
Train at 630
Meal 5/Post work out at or around 7:30 pm: 2 scoops of protein
Meal 6 at or around 10:30 pm: 2 whole eggs/ 3 egg whites and 1/2 cup of oatmeal.
Meals were done kind of in reverse because I usually wake up at 630 to get ready for school, drop off my daughter and dont usually eat until 800 am. I cant eat too much while in school so that's why I have 2 shakes as part as meals. I should point out that I am 31 years old, weigh somewhere between 189-193 on a given day. I lift weights about 4-5 days a week with cardio after the training session usually about 20 minutes. I am really trying to lean out and have that clean ripped look. I don't eat garbage but still carry around a considerable amount of bodyfat. I asked about carb cycling but the guy said that I should stick to this for about 3 weeks then come back to check the progress before starting a carb cycling diet. Still pretty muscular so not a complete fat ass but bodyfat a little high which is confusing because I have vascularity in my arms "biceps" and see faint striations in my upper chest. Please help!! Does this look ok??
Kind of new to the whole measuring of food thing. I have always estimated which has led to probably over eating on my part. I'm looking at somewhere between 250-300g of protein, 250-300 carbs, not really a clue when it comes to fats. Do recognize that I would probably be better off with a better understanding when it comes to food tracking.
Pretty excited about my first day on the new diet. Prepped all my food and am ready to go for tomorrow. The only thing that really puzzles me is that I go to the gym at 630, get there a little before 7 and usually don't finish until 815ish then I do cardio for an extra 20 minutes "which I will probably need to do more of" so I esentially do not leave the gym until close to 9. Should I drink my post work out shake before my cardio?
To the OP, please read homework 1 - a lot of the questions you're asking are in there.
Not sure why you're eating six meals a day if you're trying to eat less. Also, your workouts are way too long for a cutter. While cutting, you'll generally train less than while bulking (less food, right? Less energy.)

Not bad but I'd not have protein powder 3 x daily. Eat more 'real' food so sub one of these for cottage cheese or Greek yogurt (no added sugar, such as Sophie yogurt).
Also virtually no fat (1 tsp pb??) - you need fat to help you burn fat. So add some avocado in there or drizzle 1 tbsp olive oil on your veggies.
