    I think you need more fat. 1 TBS a day is probably not enough. Efa's in meal 6 would be good too. How many carbs are you eating in a day?? What do you make your shake with?

    What are your stats too?

    cardio 2x/day? thats overkill!
    I agree with Jill, need more info, stats, etc.
    and defintly more healthy fats.
    how much oatmeal?
    what is that low carb cereal?
    what kind of veggies? - you also need more fiberous ones too!

    (sorry for all the questions) we just want to help you get this right!

    I'm trying to lose fat as quick as I can!!!!! But I know it has to do more with my diet than anything!

    Oatmeal 1/3 cup
    FF Cottage Cheese 1/4 cup

    Low carb cereal: Special K
    100 calories, 3 g fat, 9 g. carbs, 10 g protein

    I mostly just eat salads - but add broccoli and cauliflower.

    For my shake - it is the EAS already made kind - they taste good!
    100 calories, 3 g fat, 2 g carbs and 15g protein

    Post your stats meaning your height, weight and bodyfat% if you know it. A pic would help too.

    You don't want to do a ton of cardio, just enough to facilitate fat loss...let the nutrition and weight training do the work for ya and then you can add more cardio as needed.

    Your stats will help us to know exactly how much food you should eat to achieve your goals.

    Cardio - 4x per week for fast fat loss - 3 25min. HIIT Session, 1 30 min. Traditional cardio. Just keep in mind that you will probably lose muscle with alot of cardio

    Oatmeal 1/3 cup
    FF Cottage Cheese 1/4 cup

    Not enough protein. Make that 1 Cup of Cottage Cheese and add 1T. Natty PB

    Low carb cereal: Special K
    100 calories, 3 g fat, 9 g. carbs, 10 g protein

    Special K cereal is crap. Get Fiber One or All Bran with extra Fiber. Also, FF Low carb milk called Carb Countdown. Add in a few eggs whites too and 1 whole egg

    I mostly just eat salads - but add broccoli and cauliflower.

    Be sure to add in tuna or chicken with your salad

    For my shake - it is the EAS already made kind - they taste good!
    100 calories, 3 g fat, 2 g carbs and 15g protein
    Get some fish oil caps. As Jill said, you need some more EFA's and here is a great place to add them
    You also need to add another meal somewhere. 4 meals a day is not enough.

    ----

    Meal 3 is pre-workout
    Meal 4 is post-workout

    For the protein - I usually have 2 ounces

    Is fish oil the best EFA??? What meals should I add this to?

    Jill is spot on with the protein.

    As far as Fish oil, yes, it is the best EFA.

    Try reading this article on Fish oil, it will help understand it better.

    Losing 20 might make you almost tooo skinny. Maybe 10 or so lbs. and then just turning the fat into muscle would be just as effective. Remember, when you lose weight, some of that comes off as muscle, so you have to try your hardest to keep it on.

    now that is progress!! its looking MUCH better! I would make the cottage cheese in meal 2 at least 3/4cup.
    are you only taking 3 fish oil capsules/day? I would aim for at least 5.
    you could add some veggies in meal 6 as well. and some healthy fats. what kind of mayo? low fat? regular?

    HIIT -High Intensity Interval Training.
    basically you do a warmup on cardio. say on the bike. slight warmup then go for 1minute HARD as you can and then lower to a moderate pace for 1 minute and then 1 minute HARD again. you should really be panting and sweaty! 20mins intervals 5mins warmup/cooldown!

    I will change the cottage cheese to 3/4 cup (I get so darn full) in meal 2.

    I have never taken fish oil capsules - please tell me how many and where I should be taking them!

    Any particular veggies to add in meal 6 as well. and some healthy fats - like what??? I use light mayo.-- should I be using something else???

    I was shopping last night and was wondering about string cheese?????? For Meal 1 instead of the carb countdown milk should I be having something else?????

    Is the apple OK - or should I have a different fruit??? Grapefruit???

    If you think I should switch something I will - just let me know!!!

    Thanks Again

    Personally, I think the apple is good, but you can afford to have a whole one. Fresh produce is a dieters best friend.

    aim for at LEAST 5/day. spread them out if you want. 2caps each time. make sure you have some in your last meal though.
    Any particular veggies to add in meal 6 as well. and some healthy fats - like what??? I use light mayo.-- should I be using something else???
    any fiberous veggies really. broccoli, spinach, romaine lettuce, green beans, mushrooms, onions, peppers, cucumbers, sprouts, celery, cabbage, etc. healthy fats like olive oil, flaxseed oil, hemp oil, natural peanut butter. I would try and cut back on the light mayo as well. use salsa's, vinegars, and mustards along with spices for flavouring.
    I was shopping last night and was wondering about string cheese?????? For Meal 1 instead of the carb countdown milk should I be having something else?????
    I wouldnt go with string cheese. too high in fats. the carb countdown milk is fine. you could also add in some eggwhites(1yolk)
    Is the apple OK - or should I have a different fruit??? Grapefruit???
    the apple is fine. fruits like, apples(with the peels), pears, grapefruit, strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, etc are fine
    If you think I should switch something I will - just let me know!!!

    Thanks Again

    You need more fat. Fish oil is key, about 3-6 grams per day. The rest of your fat should be from monounsaturated sources i.e. olive oil. Eating these fats will help keep you full and take the fat off too.

    For Meal 1 - do you think I should take out my cereal??? I couldn't find ff Carb Countdown milk but I found chocolate Carb Countdown milk. It does contain 4.5g fat in 1 cup. It tastes so yummy. Can I have 1 cup of this and then my 2 egg whites and 1 whole egg?????

    With my tuna - I will add salsa - tastes good too.

    I was shopping and found a Carb Freedom yogurt by Blue Bunny:

    90 calories
    3 g fat
    1.5 sat. fat
    cabs 5 g
    sugars 5 g
    protein 9 g

    Can I substitute this in somewhere????
    When trying to lose fat - should I be watching my carbs and take my oatmeal out??????

    I love natty pb - can I add a tablespoon somewhere maybe at night for dessert with meal 5???

    I was counting up my calories - they are high. I thought for cutting I was to burn more than taking in. I weigh 130/135 so I should be consuming 1300 calories right??

    leave the cereal. make it 1/2-3/4c. Carbcountdown milk. and keep the egg whites/1yolk as well.
    With my tuna - I will add salsa - tastes good too.

    in my opinon, once in a while is OK. its high in sugars(5g's). dotn have it everyday.
    When trying to lose fat - should I be watching my carbs and take my oatmeal out??????
    no oatmeal is a great choice in a diet. leave it in there. when dieting its good to cut back slightly on carb intake, but not too drastically-if you do then you will need carb-up's.
    I love natty pb - can I add a tablespoon somewhere maybe at night for dessert with meal 5???
    the peanut butter is fine.make sure that its natural. and 1tablespoon. you could have it before bed, along with some cottage cheese if you wanted. tastes great. (meal 6)
    I was counting up my calories - they are high. I thought for cutting I was to burn more than taking in. I weigh 130/135 so I should be consuming 1300 calories right??actually your calories arent high at all. 1300 would be TOO low! say you weigh 135. you should be taking in 1485-1620 calories daily. (bodyweight X 11 or 12)
