Meal 1 - Protein Shake, multivitamin, 8:00 AM
how about adding in some healthy fats?? or some oatmeal?
Meal 2 - 3 egg whites, 1 whole egg, 2 peices of whole wheat toast, Water, 10:00 AM
hmmmmm I would drop the bread. or else not have it every day. I think you need a lil more protein here too.
Meal 3 - Salad with about half a can of tuna mixed in. (bluecheese dressing?) Water, 12-1:00 PM
no dressing unless it is low call. vinegrettes are great and hardly no added sugar.beware of sodium in those Fatfree types as well. add some EFA's here. how about putting some olive oil or flax or hempseed oil drizzled on your salad?
Meal 4 - Protein Shake + carb source (cereal, couple peices of bread) 4-5:00 PM
no bread or cereal..how about oats or sweet potato or rice or small peice of fruit?
TRAIN 6:00 - 9:00 PM
Meal 5 - Protein shake, baked potato (would it be ok to add steak to this? Butter ok?) 9:30 PM
why is your training SO long???? 3 hours?? just the shake and potato post workout. no steak, no butter.
Sometimes I have a 6th meal of a few egg whites or a slab of steak.
you dont seem like your geting enough protein, veggies or EFA's. I would add in the 6th meal of lean protein, lotsa of veggies and some healthy fats.
Do you think this is closer to essential for muscle building and fat loss? Can I mix and match some of these things? I try to eat half a bannana in one of those meals also for fruits.
with making a few more of the tweaks as I mentioned its defintly sufficeint to aid in fat loss goals. I would also cut out the banana. it is high sugar fruit. how about going for berries or apples/pears?
Also, do you think it will be neccessary for me to start counting calories just to get my abs showing? Im really trying to avoid that.
well if you are trying to avoid that and all the fuss, stick to clean eating as suggested and you should be fine. however when you begin to notice a slow and plateau it would be very wise to keep track a bit more closely
