Calorie deficient (off days vs. on days)
I'm trying to fine-tune this "calorie deficient" process for the summer! My question is, should you shoot for more calorie deficiency on off days from working out or does it matter? Notice my following diet for on-days & off days:
5:30 (Protein shake w/milk & creatine...occasional banana)
11:30 (turkey sanwich on wheat, fruit, pork rhines or low-fat chips)
2:30 (Protein shake w/water & snack...chex mix or peanut butter crackers)
5:30 (Dinner...mostly baked chicken or sometimes fish or baked hamburger
9:00 (Protein shake w/milk)
*Now on off days, it's pretty much the same! (sometimes I'm hungrier)...every once in a while, I'll eat a snack or something so that I don't deprive myself! This morning (work-out day), I had some cereal w/skim milk about an hour after my protein shake & creatine...I felt pretty good!
*Should I reduce this more or should I continue? By the way, my stats are
5ft 9 inches, 236lbs....I've been on the Max-OT program for about 1 year now! (it works great...I just want to try to get my eating fine-tuned)
