How much oatmeal?
each shake has 25g of protein. i usually have about 3/4 cup of oatmeal. sometimes i'll add in 1/4 cup of fruit.

Backs up my sticky to a T.

I took the liberty of logging everything into fitday for you. This shows you EXACTLY how much you've ACTUALLY been eating, which is why I created the sticky I linked a few posts back.

Now, veggies have trace amounts of carbs and virtually no calories so I didn't bother.

Here is exactly what you ARE eating:

Total Calories: 2,399

Fats: 46 grams (412 calories)

Carbs: 213 grams (761 calories)

Protein: 281 grams (1123 calories)

Yep, that's it. I'll attach a word document so you can see what each amount of every food you eat has. The kicker is that even if the software was off by say 500 calories.. You're STILL way over a thousand off of your estimate.

Well, you need to first figure out what maintenence is for you by keeping track of everything you eat for 1-2 weeks. As you can see, you were over 1,400 calories OFF. General rule of thumb is multiplying your bodyweight by 15 if you don't take the time to keep track. But, as long as you stay consistant with that diet, you'll be able to tell better than anyone here if it's enough of a surplus or not.
