Hello all, I'm 18 years old. I've been doing an insanity/p90x hybrid workout schedule for the past month and a half. Today I started counted my nutritional stats as they would be on a typical day.


2 Packets Quakers Maple Brown Sugar Oatmeal- 320 Cals/4 Fat/66 Carb/8 Protein
2 Cups Skim Milk- 180 Cals/0 Fat/26 Carb/18 Protein
1 1/2 Cups Golean Crunch Cereal- 345 Cals/4.5 Fat/60 Carb/15 Protein

Post Workout-

Vector Energy Bar- 230 Cals/7 Fat/ 32 Carb/9 Protein


2 Whole Wheat Bread Slices- 240 Cals/4 Fat/40 Carbs/10 Protein
3 Ham Slices- 100 Cals/3 Fat/2 Carbs/15 Protein
3 Turkey Slices- 90 Cals/1 Fat/0 Carbs/14 Protein


Canned Salmon- 90 Cals/4 Fat/0 Carbs/13 Protein
2 Laughing Cow Cheese Slices- 45 Cals/2.5 Fat/0 Carbs/4 Protein


1 Cup Skim Milk- 90 Cals/0 Fat/0 Carbs/9 Protein
Lamb Shanks and Risotto- Unfortunately, I do not have nutritional info.

9 PM Snack-

Peach Yogurt- 35 Cals/0 Fat/5 Carbs/4 Protein
1/4 Cup Almonds- 170 Cals/15 Fat/5 Carbs/6 Protein
13 Multigrain Chips- 210 Cals/9 Fat/27 Carbs/4 Protein

Before Bed Snack-

1/2 Cup Cottage Cheese- 90 Cals/.4 Fat/6 Carbs/15 Protein
2 tbsp Peanut Butter- 160 Cals/12 Fat/12 Carbs/6 Protein

Without Counting Lambshanks & Risotto- 2395 Cals/66.4 Fat/397 Carbs/150 Protein

So what are some improvement that I can make?

Here are some of my thoughts:

-Obviously I need way more veggies, but I just can't get around to liking the flavor. What are some ways to mix them into food?

-There were 108.5 grams total of sugar. Without counting the natural fruit sugar. A ton of this came from my breakfast. Is this number ok since I'm needing some energy either before or after my workout?

-Considering my age and subsequent nutritional needs and the close to 1000 cals burned off from an insanity workout dvd, are my nutritional numbers just fine?

My goal from working out is to add lean muscle onto a 160 pound body, and reduce the fat on my lower abs. And to modify my diet to increase my healthy nutrition intake.

Aim to gain mass or cut fat, not both

also, i'd decrease carbs and increase fats
