Ok here is my usual meal plan for each day. I'm not so big on carb rotation and all, but I like the way this program works out.

Breakfast - Bowl of wheaties
Mid-Morning - TLC Protein bar
Lunch - Tuna Sandwich / Peanut Butter Sandwich on heavily active days
Mid-Afternoon - Granola Bar
Dinner - Turkey with broccoli and other vegetables and fruits / Chicken Ceaser Salad
Evening - Protein Shake

What do you guys think?

Sounds low on the protein and high on refined carbohydrates. The best part is your dinner, which is a good mix of healthy protein and vegetables...just what the doctor ordered! I would ditch the wheaties and the sandwiches if at all possible and attempt to stick with "meat, vegetables, nuts and seeds, some fruit, little starch and no sugar" at the very least

My goals are just to continue to lose these last few percentage points of body fat %, I would say that I am somewhere around 9 or 10% and I'm trying to get down to 5 or 6. Also, to help build some more muscle mass.

And Jesse, the tuna sandwich is one of the best sources of protein you can get, and the protein shake boosts up the protein count a ton. And I understand where you are coming from with the wheaties and stuff, but for breakfast would it be a better substitution to have a whole wheat bagel instead?

Oh yeah, and sorry for leaving this out of my first post but these are just my main course of the meal. For example, at lunch I will still have 1/2 an apple or some carrots or something else, it's not just the sandwich there :-)

Thanks :-)

Why not eat 3 eggs for breakfast, you can hard boil 20 or so before the start of the week.

Lunch you can eat tuna without the bread and add some more veggies.

I only eat whole wheat bread as well, forgot to put that in there.

And I have been debating the eggs for quite some time now, just never put it in to place yet. Thanks for the suggestion

even whole wheat is generally frownd apon around here, came as quite a suprise to me when i first started reading as well..

having cut out all the bread from all the sandwiches i used to eat i can see the difference.. swich to some veggies or a salad, and keep the tuna.

Ok, but I just have one question. Why? Everywhere else that I read it says that whole wheat bread is good for you, with decent amounts of protein and carbs that aren't highly refined.
