Re: new improved diet

It's better, but you still need more. Like many posters said, you need to eat 2000 Cals at LEAST to maintain. You don't need to lose any more weight, and even if you did you still should be eating at LEAST 1300-1400 Cals, no less. If I would suggest an are I would say dinner, because most normal people have big dinners compared to other meals, and yours is almost nonexistant!

Energy drink? sounds sugary and caffienated, and the splenda, so very artificial and what is npb? The protein drinks can be very problematic depending on what the ingredients are. But in all just not enough food, and where are the good fats you need for proper metabolism and cellular repair? Whole eggs would be a start. You need more and better calories!! EAT ... Please

Re: new improved diet

Protein isolate, does that translate to soy protein isolate? That would be a real issue. The one cup soy milk is a problem. One cup a day for a month can cause thyroid changes. The splenda is a dietary nightmare. Think about getting some professional help with your diet.

Re: new improved diet

It's better than the first one, but is still really too little. Your dinner, for starters, should be around 500-600 calories, and yours (i'd be surprised) if it hit like 100 Cals. Have another snack at night, too if you can, about the same size as before. and while the shakes may be good for a quick snack, as a lunch one shake isn't enough, nor is it substantial for a meal. The rice is good, but try having some veggies and protein-real protein like fish or chicken, and some fat like mayo or butter, etc. For dinner- you need way more, like I've said. I agree with racehorse- consider seriously getting a nutritionist or doctor's help.

Re: new improved diet

like the others said, really, REALLY too low. i seriously suggest getting some nutritional help. 3 protein/energy/whatever drinks a day?!? repeat to yourself,
"These are not real food." fine if you're a professional athlete, but i highly doubt the exercise you're doing requires these drinks. actually, i'm positive. there is no way you'd be able to train to the level that you'd need these drinks on the amount of calories you're consuming per day. you need someone to show you how to eat a BALANCED diet, which is not at all what you're eating now. fruits, veggies, protein (from MEAT, etc. not shakes), carbohydrates, fat, dairy . . . all of these are important and what you're eating now isn't even coming close. at least if you're not going to go seek nutritional help, try to include ALL the food groups and focus on FOOD, not supplemental drinks.

Yah, I think your diet has a little too many protein shakes. Perhaps you could cut it down to one, and have a salad with a bunch of veggies in addition.(like girly said, increase your veggies) I would alternate perhaps egg whites one day with some kind of veg and whole grain(brown rice), and the next day maybe tuna with veg and whole grain, then chicken with veg and whole grain, etc. If you feel sick by eating heavily at dinner, then maybe you could eat your protein, veg and grain that i was just explaining about at lunch....and have your protein shake for dinner, along with a salad or something. And..that snack that your having before dinner with the energy drink.... why don't you have an apple with yogurt or something. Do you like cottage cheese? That first apple you could eat WITH cottage cheese. When you add up the cottage cheese plus the yogurt, you won't NEED that second protein shake. Apples with PB is also really good.

I'm just curious, what kind of protein shake do you drink? What kind of milk do you put in it?

Re: new improved diet

So you don't eat meat or dairy or anything processed... were you like thi before you embarked on your diet? Why have you cut out so much?

You need some other form of protein other than eggwhite. Either that, or add more to your dinner... whichever way you look at it, its definately not substantial, and you need to eat more overall. Add in fish, nuts, peanut butter, nut butters, soy, tofu...etc. Anything you can.

Congratulations on not eating the fake meat and other processed rubbish! You did mention protein shakes and unless you have found the rare one made with egg protein you would be eating just that processed and probably soy junk that you don't want.
