Diet Idea.
I'm doing a 2,000 calorie diet, 20 grams of carbs (new work-out plan, I'll up the carbs by week 3, and calories). Basicly I lift 6 days a week.
Upper body: Mondays, Wendsdays, Fridays.
Lower body: Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays.

I plan on doing Cardio every day, I'm not initiatly starting it till next week. But every day I do cardio, week one, week two, a mile, then I up it everyweek by a 4th of a mile till I get to 3 miles that I'll run.

This is so far of what I've been following up on.

Breakfest:Some shake suppliment, protein 20g, 2 carbs, potassium 550mg, 260mg of sodium cholesterol 15mg total fat 9g

Snack post 3 hours after breakfest: PowerBar fat, 8g, sodium 160mg total carb 2 protein 10g 170 calories

Lunch: I watch what I eat, something with about 200 calories, and under 5 carbs or lower

Post snack:Something that is under 2 carbs, 100 calories or 200

Dinner:Something with protein, under 10 carbs, 300 calories....usally I eat some-kind of meat for lunch/dinner...

Can use some input please, thanks for your time.

how much are u looking to lose and how much do u weight currently (sorry if you already posted this somewhere else) it helps us get a perspective on how much youll lose or if what your doing it to harsh on your body. the idea sounds pretty good to me though ive been trying lately do to a 5 meal a day thing and its worked out well

With out really getting more info it's hard to tell but it looks to me like your way overtraining in they gym. Your going to burn out and your not eating right. Real food is the way to go and even with what your posting I don't see 2000 calories.
What is it you want to acomplish?

There is no need for this much cardio, in my opinion this is overkill and will cause your to lose muscle. If I understand right you want to be doing 3 miles of cardio a day for 6 days? You really don't need to do that much. 3-4 days a week is sufficient and I would suggest looking into HIT cardio which makes you exert more effort in shorter cardio workouts. its been proven to burn more fat than conventional cardio. This amount of cardio is what marathon runners train with, unless you want a lenky body like them you don't need this much.

Your diet is pretty lacking. I only count 40 grams of protein not counting the meals you don't have planned. You want to eat protein with every meal and should be aiming for AT LEAST 1.5g of protein per lean body mass. (take your take your weight minus your weight*BF% to get your lbm.) You should really be eating some lean meats in there like chicken breasts or lean red meats like ground sirloin. I assume this is a cutting diet, so avoid eating Fats and Carbs together in the same meals.

I would suggest you look up how to calculate your BMR and that will give you a good idea of how many calories you need a day to maintain your weight, you can then subtract calories each day depending on how much you want to lose a week.

We really need more details on your stats (weight/age/etc) and your goals to give you more detailed advice.

K, well, I weight 220 or so, my height is 5"10, guessing that I'm about 33% BF or so. My goals: Lose about, or near, 30 pounds this summer, get more muscle strengh/mass. I do eat up to 2,000 calories every day, what I eat is all diffrent everyday, and well, after those upper body work-outs, I am really burned out and feel it, I don't think I'm over doing it at all. Lower body I can feel it too. But with the other day routine I'm doing should be good so far. Was talking with my math teacher who lifts, he said if you do a work out, it starts with a H, don't remember the name, but say you bench 240 or so, like I do, so you hae 135, do 4 sets of 6-10 reps, but give your self a rest time of 30 sec's after every set. I've been up to something like this.....but I up the weight a little bit by 10 pounds to 20 pounds, by the time I'm at the 4th set, I go back to the first to finish. This is the third day of my new lifting routine, and I don't think I'm burning too bad at all, but doing some input on what yea guys think. Thanks.
