All your protein is coming from shakes. Change it up like chicken, tuna, other fish, beef. Add some other fat sources from different kinds of nuts. And you should be getting a bit more saturated fat.

Shoot for 33/33/33 of mono/poly/sat fats. And your calorie balance depends on what you are aiming for. Mass, maintanance, or dropping weight. I would personall eat atleast 500 - 600 more per day if trying to lose weight.

Yea but a 15 pound difference doesn't make that much of an impact in the calorie calculator. But also, your metabolism may be different so do what works for you. If you can gain at 2300 calories by all means do it. For me I can't gain until I go to atleast 3100 per day. Everyone is different

If you are making progress with that then you will see results. If not you may need to experiment by slowly adding or decreasing calories. Your body will tell you in the form of fatigue or exhaustion if you need to increase.

2 egg whites with a bit of yolk (not much yolk) - 50 (i think egg whites r low)

I keep on reading this, but don't be affraid from the yolks !

When I have time, my breakfast consists of 3 whole eggs and 2 slices of WW Bread.
Cholesterol is not going to kill you, and the little fat in there is neither! (don't forget about the amazing taste yolk gives to your omelette :p)

I think your 2300cal is ok on off-days, but you should shoot it up a little on lifting days.


As for the rest of the day, PWO shake, then PPWO meal, try to get proteins from whole foods (meat, chicken, fish)

alot of people has said i should bump up but alot of people say bump down..

however, i know im not overloading myself becos i listen to my body. as well iv learned that the 'last bit' of fat is harder to get off because of a constant restricted diet has made you metabolism go slow toward the end. SO, the diet should be changed during the last phase where u eat more cals but do more INTENSE training? am i going over my head here or am i on the right lines?
