    hey all
    i am struggling with my diet, but i DO have the exercise program down PAT. Ive been running 1 mile a day, cutting out pop, doing weight training 3 times a week, etc, and of course, playing tennis 1.5-2 hours a day.

    However, without diet, these efforts are really pointless. 2 good friends have helped me come up with these 2 diets for cutting. They are both pretty experienced, and post on the forums. I am an endomorph, and now weigh 180 lbs EXACTLY. Hoping to get down to the 160's ASAP(sometime in July-Oct)

    Well, here are the 2 diets, please tell me which one you think is better for cutting, losing weight, and all that.

    Breakfast- Oatmeal, Skim milk, 1 scoop of whey protein

    Mid Morning: Met-Rx Protein Plus bar

    Lunch- 1 subway sandwich with lettuce, grilled chicken, olives carrots green peppers

    Pre workout- 1 banana, 1 scoop of natural peanut butter

    Post workout- Protein shake and banana

    Post post workout- Muscle Milk, Oats and 4 oz skim milk

    Pre bed- 2 tablespoons of peanut butter, Kroger Fat Free cottage cheese

    2400 cals per day, approx 400 cals at each meal.

    DIET #2:

    Breakfast 6:45 AM-
    Quaker Quick Oats(2/3 cup) 226 calories

    I tend to agree with you on this and on other things you mentioned.

    Protein is over rated. Though I am find myself struggling with building muscles.

    In the 20's and 30's I was blessed with muscle that was just there with no exercise. Especially the forearms. Though now in the 40s even when I do strength training, muscles never seem to like to show up or hangout for that matter!!!

    70% of my meals are vegan, 20% vegetarian, and 10% have fish or chicken.

    Is there something special I should be eating or doing to build muscle?

    That diet sound very unappetizing to me. I couldn't do it. I think enjoying food is more important, so I would recommend eating something you like just in smaller portions. Also, instead of a breakfast food, I recommend eating a full meal, regular meal, maybe not at 8am but 10 or 11am if you can, smaller lunch around 3pm and dinner that is very small, just as olives, red beats, salad. It helps me to eat this way and I have been eating and not gaining.
