What up guys...

Just wanted some feedback on my plan. I'm 5'11", 212 lbs, pretty out of shape (I'm guessing body fat in the low-to-mid 20s). Here's my cutting plan:

Meal 1:
lean ground beef (95%)
black beans
bag frozen broccoli
1 tbsp fish oil

Meal 2:
extra lean ground turkey (99%)
black beans
homemade salsa
avocado

Meal 3 (PWO shake):
protein powder
banana
cup blueberries
cup oats
1 tbsp almond butter

Meal 4:
chicken breast
bag frozen broccoli

Meal 5:
1 cup cottage cheese (2%)
1 tbsp fish oil

Total calories: 1817
I'm getting 180g of protein per day
My macros are 40P:28C:32F

In conjunction with this diet I'll be beginning P90X. I'm choosing P90X just as a structured way to get into something resembling good shape and build some strength so I don't look like a moron in the gym.

After building a base with P90X I plan on beginning Starting Strength.

So does this plan sound effective? Any ideas on what I can expect with respect to changes in my body if I follow the above plan (eg: time-frame, how dramatic of a body change, etc.)?

Thanks for taking the time!

looks soild, maybe add in some eggs if you dont want to eat meat first thing in the morning.. if the diet gets boring you can always add in a cheat meal once a week.

I tweaked your diet hope you enjoy.

Meal 1:
lean ground beef (95%) or 4 whole eggs
black beans / or oats with protein mixed in
bag frozen broccoli
1 tbsp fish oil

Meal 2:
extra lean ground turkey (99%) or canned fish, salmon or tuna
black beans or yams
homemade salsa
avocado

Meal 3 (PWO shake):
protein powder and banana is good.


Meal 4:
chicken breast
Yams
bag frozen broccoli

Meal 5:
1 cup cottage cheese (2%)
PB with the cc or Protein powder
1 tbsp fish oil
