I have started this diet yesterday.. I feel great but i want to get some feedbacks from you guys

I am 16 and 180lbs trying to lower BF and define muscle.. I think I am going to stay on this diet until my abs are visiable(top of my abs are somewhat visiable..but got lil chunk of fat on lower part :/)

I think ima go with 40/20/20 and see if it's right for me...

meal 1 - 2-3 HB eggs w/ 3 bacon strips
meal 2 - (need one for snake)
meal 3 - turkey sandwitch with lettuce and american cheese
meal 4 - protein shake.. (well a bottle of water with 2tsp protein powder)
meal 5 - chese melted on ham w/ some veggies and PB
meal 6 - a bowl of salads, chicken breast

and 5 days of high/low intensed cardio and 3 days of lifting

my questions:
what do you think about my diet?
is my protein/fat/carb leveled out?
and should i drink protein shake days i lift or everyday?
can anyone give me a great example for snack?

thanx in advance !

Umm... your eating a 80% diet?? (40+20+20=80)... I'd go 40/30/30



what do you think about my diet?


Need more info... macro nutrient breakdowns etc. (what's a "snake"?!?)



is my protein/fat/carb leveled out?


Need to know your ratio's to answer that.



and should i drink protein shake days i lift or everyday?


If your protein is pure whey then only take it straight after lifting (with high GI carb such as dextrose) or at breakfast, if you must.



can anyone give me a great example for snack?


Depends on your (and here's that magic word again)... ratio's. However a good mid morning snack would be something like cottage cheese with fruit, or flax seed oil and oats and splenda. However, ideally there should be no "snacks" and calories should be evenly distributed. Thus, a tupperware meal of chicken, veggies and brown rice would be in order.

At glance your calories, carbohydrates and omega-3's look too low... whats with the cheese??? Anyway, seems like you've got more research to do if you want a really great cutting diet.... 'spose I just couldn't resist the pleading tone of the post; I know what its like to wanto be ripped!

Good luck,

2 teaspoons of protein powder?? If this is a mistake edit it and correct it.

Bro, you should use a protein shake primarily for after workouts or if you absolutely cannot eat anything else because you can make something..........eat real food whenever possible and your body will use that a lot more readily. Just use the shakes post-workout if at all possible.
