    Default Diet Feedback

    Hello all. I have been on this site many a times, but not for a long time. I'm getting back into my healthy eating routine now that I have given up drinking alcohol and am almost two months sober! I am not to get a real cut going, but I would like to look a little bit leaner. After 4 years of horrible eating and drinking, my body does not look so good. I'm 6 foot tall and 235 lbs and I'm 24 years old. I have an alcohol gut that I want gone. Anyway here is my diet...

    Breakfast: Protein shake consisting of nonfat yogurt, frozen strawberries, whole milk and casein protein.
    Snack #1: Packet of tuna and handful of Planters dry roasted peanuts.
    Lunch: Cod filet and 6-8 asparagus spears.
    Snack #2 (post workout): Muscle Milk, handful of Planters dry roasted peanuts, and lowfat cottage cheese.
    Dinner: 1/2 boiled chicken breast and 6-8 asparagus spears.
    Snack #3 (before bed): Casein protein shake.

    I also work out 4 times a week. Monday, Tuesday, and Friday are my lifting/HIIT days and either Saturday or Sunday I go for a 6-7 mile run.

    Thoughts?

    I personally would try to reduce the shakes for more whole food. Your diet is lacking some micronutrients and food sources you could incorporate
    For example more fruits (berries), potatoes and rice in there as well. Potatoes are key for proper potassium and sodium balance (since most foods dont have high sources of potassium)
    Don't skimp on whole eggs or nut butters for fat sources too

    if you want to lose weight you need to get into a caloric deficit

    Are you actually taking time to count your calories and have you determined your BMR?
    Donít chase the 1%, there is no magic training routine or diet thatís going to provide any measurable results over the basic principles for getting huge and strong: Train heavy, eat and sleep more.

    because your eating in a caloric surplus = more calories you need and you will gain weight.
    Simple.
    Calories in vs calories out.
