Here is my diet, one week into it:
 
7.30am - 12 egg whites, 50gm oats, PB

10:am - 50gm protein shake, apple, 2 rice cakes w/peanut butter

13.00 - salmon fillet, mixed veg, sweet potato OR chicken/turkey fillet with rice mixed veg

15.45 - MRP

18:00 - Can of tuna or mackeral

18.30 train

20.00 - Carbolyn (1 scoop), 15 mins later 50gms protein

21.45: Chicken w/ avacado, asparagus, if still hungry one scoop of whey mixed with natural yogurt or quark

I cant have anything other than an MRP at 15:45 as I'm on a quick break at work in the office. And at 6 I can still feel the carbs in me from the MRP so I just have protein - have in the past had carbs at 1800 but I end up feeling drowsy before I get to the gym and that's not good for obvious reasons. Have all my vits Omega 3's...so what do you think?

Looks good!
If you're not making the cutting progress you'd like, cut out some of the carbs in your earlier meals.

way- way- way- WAY TOO MUCH FOOD DUDE!

 Of COURSE you have not lost any weight in 9 days. (yea, I know I'm being condescending, but fucking hell man) Roll Eyes Roll Eyes

1 6 EGG WHITES, 25 GRAMS OATS

2. SALMON FILET,MIXED VEG

3. 8 OZ CHICKEN WITH AVACADO, 1/2 CUP RICE

PERHAPS A PROTEIN DRINK MIXED WITH WATER.

GALLON OF WATER PER DAY/ 2 OR 3 CUPS COFFEE PER DAY.

CARB DRINKS ARE FOR MARATHON RUNNERS AND CHRONIC MASTERBATERS.

to be honest i would gear down to 2 meals and a snack... it's much easier to control calories with less meals... and the whole "meals for metabolism" concept is total bullshit

i personally find it WAY more comforting to have a big evening meal rather than to try to remember to eat every 2 hours

i typically only have a juice in the morning (homemade veggie juice) and a whey shake or egg whites if i have time (calling this a snack)

usually a medium sized lunch like rice & bbq chicken (i usually buy lunch) with a tub of vegetables (brought from home)

supper is usually a 1200+ calorie meal... mostly whatever i want

of course i am not a bodybuilder (conflicts with my personal preference to be a heterosexual)... but i am pretty lean, strong and healthy

2 meals and a snack? If I cut down that quick surely I would lose muscle quick? I was thinking I should do it gradually....

Everybody responds differently to dieting. Anybody can lose weight, but it's a little trickier when trying to maximize muscle retention in the process - that's why there is no one absolute method that works the same for everyone.
My recommendation is to start small; you can always subtract. If you're "natural," consider allowing a longer period for your target goal. Often, guys and ladies run into undesirable issues when they try losing too much too fast. You can always adjust.

Once you know your body better, then you can try doing more in less time since you'll have a solid starting point. Right now, it sounds like you need to figure things out some before finding that sweet spot that will get you there. Take it slow at first.

I have lost a few lbs this week, so cutting down on the oats has helped, my stomach feels a lot flatter and I'm not nearly as bloated as I was....def now going in the right direction. Its not being done naturally by the way.

Read no-one thread. He takes in 1,500 cals for most of the year and he is YOKED.

LOSE MUSCLE? Roll Eyes Roll Eyes Or are you just making excuses for over eating?

Since I started working second shift, I've been doing similar things.

I used to do the five-smaller-meals for a while; now I train fasted and have three larger meals for the rest of the day. I pretty much have dinner at 10:30 or 11.

A few scoops of Craze first thing in the morning takes care of that.
