Glen, i've found that the whole eating 6 meals a day really helped when i was getting in shape. if you've hit a bit of a wall maybe try that.

truth be told i did find it very hard to eat all those meals. i ate lots of fruit, nuts, tuna, protein shakes, and then veggies with my supper. funny how it can y be hard to eat so often. i was eating around 2500 a day.

Thats not all you've been eating through out the day is it?!?! If you're working out thats not enough calories, even if you wanna lose weight.
Its not great things either. If you have to have it, make the mayo light, try to do wheat bread instead of white, and the eggs; I have three eggs almost every morning, but I have all three whites and only one of the yolks.

If thats all you're eating are you at least taking a multivitamin?
If you're working out though thats only about 1000 calories a day...

You're throwing away the best part of the egg

Sorry, that really pisses me off I love yolks

On topic, I think his diet needs more fruits and veggies and like you said trade in the white bread for whole grain. It's not very nutrient rich.

Three egg yolks is like, 50% of your daily recommended fat though. I know what you mean though, they are the "tasty" part of the egg. Im just anal about fats and sugars. Except natural sugars that are in fruit. I eat a shit load of fruit.

Not just tasty, the yolk contains all the eggs vitamins and minerals and that's quite a lot. It contains about 5 grams of fat (45 calories), only a third of which is saturated. It's only 15 grams of fat for three eggs, that's not much. Certainly not half of your recommended intake. The yolk also contains half of the eggs protein. Like I said you are throwing away the best part of the egg, it's a total waste. It's more than worth the extra calories.

There are no sugars in an egg btw, not sure if you meant that in this context.

Hmmmm. I was always told that the yolks the fatty part and the whites the protein. I just looked it up though and yea, the yolks a little more than half the protein... Im gonna have to yell at my trainer when I see her tonight... Cant complain though. I gotta be doing something right with my eating, Im 6'0 1/2, 6.1 % body fat and walk around 153 lbs...

Hey folks. I do usually only eat wholemeal bread but there wasent any in the house at the time. Today I had basicly the same for breakfast and lunch but I had steamed chicken and veg for dinner. I'm seriously thinking about this 6 meals a day malarky. Think I'm going to have to start planning my meals properly. Is a protein shake a decent meal replacment if I haven't got time to knock up a propper meal? Cheers for all the feedback by the way. This plateau I've hit is starting to piss me off. I'm stuck at 14st 6!!!

If you haven't got time try smoothies (see rakim's thread), a protein shake lacks too many things to qualify as a meal replacer for me. You can make em once every few days, so they're perfect for when you haven't got time to cook.

rdj, what are your thoughts on the 6 small meals a day? Ever done it? I work shifts so I think it's going to be a right pain in the ass planning and cooking alot of different small meals.

Been doing it for years, if I go back to 3 meals a day I'll be either full or starving. Not every meal is cooked, a quick meal would be trail mix (nuts and raisins) and a glass of milk for example. Smoothies are also a quick meal, ideal for during shifts.

I started doing the 6 meal a day thing (though I do five) in December and weighed 168, fought at 165. Im now weighing around 152-155 waking around. I havent lost any of my strength, stamina, anything, I think I just got a lot leaner and a little quicker. So I would highly suggest it.

Like RDJ said a simple shake can replace a meal. I make mine a smoothie too, but I add a scoop of protein mix. Like today I had one for meal number.... 3 I think it was. Half a banana (ate the other half), about 6 strawberries, half a blueberry light yogurt (ate the other half again...), skim milk, ice, and a scoop of banana cream muscle milk. Was quite satisfing and tasty.
