My diet - loose 15lbs!

Hello everyone

Just wanted to share with all of you my current diet.
My goal is to drop about 15lbs in about 2 months.
I'm currently 215lbs, 6'0''.

I've been following this diet for the past 10 days and
the only thing that is giving me a hard time is the
daily cravings I get every night. At first I tried fruit sorbet,
but it's still cheating. The mixed nuts every now and then
don't do the work. It's sweets... and I'm probably addicted
to it.

#1 - 8am
2 whole eggs + 2 egg whites
1 tbs shredded mozzarella cheese
1 tbs steamed spinach
1/2 tomato
1 slice of turkey bacon
drink: Water
(2 caps Multi / 3 caps Fish Oil)

#2 10am
1 protein bar (Doctor's CarbRite Diet bar, Universal Nutrition)

#3 - 12pm
Grilled steak or chicken
Salad (no dressing)
black or chilli beans (optional)
drink: unsweetened iced tea
(3 caps Fish Oil)

#4 3:30pm
Turkey-salad wrap on a low carb tortilla
1 piece of fruit (green apple, usually)

4-5:30pm - WORKOUT (running, swimming)
(Cytomax or Water/GU gel combo)

#5 Immediately after WO
Protein shake (water, protein powder, frozen berries, greens+)

#6 7pm
Grilled chicken or shrimp
Steamed vegetables (green beans, carrots, tomatoes, mixed greens)
Dressing: Balsamic vinegar, olive oil and Creole
drink: water or any diet drink

#7 before bed
Protein shake (water, protein powder, frozen berries, greens+)
(3 caps Fish Oil)

I am also taking Lipo-6 before breakfast and again about 30min
before working out. Makes me sweat like a crazy man but it definetly
makes me work harder.

Any thoughts or opinions are welcome.

Thanks, GUS

Meal #3 or 4 is more PWO friendly than meal 6. Id switch them up so you save your carbs for the post-workout window.

How many calories are you eating and what is your macro breakdown?

To me it looks fairly low calorie for someone your size but it's hard to tell because you dont list the amounts of food you are eating.

Hey Gus. A tablespoon of steamed spinach in meal #1? Is that right? I'd also try to get in some veggies with meal #2.

Hope that helps.

I remember reading on JBs website that black beans (or any bean) are just fine for anytime meals. They are chocked full of fibre (8g at least per 1/2 cup) and are ranked very low on the glycemic index + glycemic load (those are scales that determine how much insulin will be released from ingesting said food), lower then some fruit. I would add some more healthy fats to that meal though.
