so i move up tomorrow, and want to stick to my goals. i actually think it will be easier to cut in college because of easy access to gym and more food options. so heres what my m-f diet sched looks like... let me know if i need to change stuff

5'7 17% @ 145

8:30 am - .5 cup oats, 1 scoop whey, 5 egg whites (358 cals, 71/32/5)
~10:30 (after my second class) - nature valley bar, apple (265, 5/45/7)
1:00 pm - salad with veggies w/light italian, turkey on whole weat (unless theyre serving a decent meat based entree) (350, 19/29/11)
2 pm - workout
~330 - protein shake + some form of carbs (prolly fruit again) (~300, 48/17/3)
~530 - whatever they serve for dinner, hopefully sometihng chicken based is available + salad/veggies (???)
~8 - .5cup of peanuts (148, 7/7/13) <--- worried about this one, any small replacements? cant do cottage cheese... perhaps a bananna? or some other fruit?

total macros is 129/143/36 (protein/carbs/fats = 39%/37%/24%)

workout schedule is:

mon + thurs: chest/back + short cardio
tues + fri: shoulders + leg + abs
wed: arms + short cardio
sat: longer cardio

according to fitday.com, my total calories is somewhere around 1300, not counting dinner. for salads i estimate around 60 cals, since i cant find what i need in fitday (lettuce, onion, gr. peps, cucumbers + light italian). i allow 500 calories for dinner so my total would be around 1900. since im living on a college campus (a lot of walking) i guess this is a decent amount of calories to be considered a cut from 2175 (15*145). perhaps its too much? let me know what you think!

sat + sundays ill have to eyeball it, but itll be very similar to the above (less fruit, no nv bars, no nuts)

I'd say give it about 2 - 3 weeks, then tweak it depending on how your stats have changed. Considering all the walking, you may end up losing more quickly than you anticipate.
