Lots of fruits and vegetables and grains. Items with high fiber will help. Also be sure to drink lots of water.

Ok... Breakfast: Breakfast looks good, any particular reason you take Kashi cereal? Oatmeal is always the healthiest cereal choice, because it is non-processed, as opposed to every other cereal. It's also a good source of complex carbohydrates, for long-lasting energy for the rest of the day, and it is a decent source of protein. 1% milk is fine, I would go with organic. Half banana and 6 egg whites also look fine. Snack: Looks good, how much protein? It should have at least 20 grams of protein. Lunch: Your lunch looks good too. Dinner: I would add a sweet potato here to up your carbohydrate intake, other than that, looks good. Since this is also your pre-workout meal, right before working out you should take a scoop of whey protein mixed in water. When glycogen storages from the muscles and liver are used up as energy during workouts, catabolism can result, and you will lose muscle mass while working out. You should also take an apple for a serving of carbohydrates so you have more energy during your workout. Snack/Post-Workout Meal: What's in the shake? My suggestion is to take 2 scoops of whey protein mixed in water, and for a serving of high GI carbohydrates to bring back energy levels, as well as put your body in an anabolic state, you could have a plain bagel with jelly. Snack Before Bed: Ok, cottage cheese should be one cup, and it's good, and you said OR a turkey sandwich with a glass of milk? If you're taking a turkey sandwich with a glass of milk, that isn't enough casein protein. The bread from the sandwich will give carbohydrates (try and avoid carbohydrates at night), the turkey will give protein, which is slower-digesting than whey, but not enough at all, and 1 glass of milk won't cut it for casein protein. I would also recommend a cup of nuts here, to up your fat intake, walnuts/almonds would be a good choice, they will also slow down protein digestion.

Your diet would depend on what your goals are... If you want to burn some fat and add some muscle i would definitely cut out the Kashi cereal...the milk...bannanas, TLC bars...choc milk and other "healthy" crap. My daily meal plan looks similar to this Meal 1 6:30am Approved Source Protein Shake 1/2 cup oatmeal 6.5 oz PEELED Ruby Red Grapefruit 12 almonds 31g protein, 20g carbohydrates, 15g fat Meal 2 9:30am 1 serving Grilled Chicken 2 cup Steamed Broccoli or Green Beans or 16 oz Steamed Asparagus 1 tbsp Peanut Butter 1 cup brown rice 36g protein, 27g carbohydrates, 15g fat Meal 3 12:30pm 6 oz Grilled Shrimp Chopped Spinach 1 cup brown rice 1 Teaspoon Teriyaki Sauce 6 almonds 34g protein, 27g carbohydrates, 13g fat Meal 4 3:30pm 1scoop Protein Powder (30 grams) One small apple 30g protein, 16g carbohydrates, 2g fat Meal 5 6:30pm 6 oz Tilapia 1.5 cup Brown Rice 1.5 cup Chopped Zucchini & Squash 1 serving Olive Oil 34g protein, 32g carbohydrates, 16g fat Meal 6 9:30pm 5oz Mahi Mahi Steamed Cabbage 1 serving Olive Oil ½ Cup Brown Rice 34g protein, 19g carbohydrates, 10g fat Meal 7 11:30pm Muscle Milk 10 Almonds 32 g protein, 4g carbohydrates, 16 g fat good luck dude for the real deal on fat burning and muscle building check out http://www.the6packsecret.com

For me, I avoid breakfast because any type of food I eat for breakfast will come back at me if you know what I mean in an hour or two, that's why I always stick with drinking water in the morning. As for the lunch and dinner, those are fine you can eat whatever you want but the only rule is never too eat it late at night because in the morning it'll come back at you around the morning.

You probably need to improve your diet as you seem to have a constipation problem. For constipation, castor oil is very good for a one-off remedy as in http://au.search.yahoo.com/search?p=%22c... but it is unsuitable for regular use. For constipation, suppositories, laxatives and enemas are all totally unnecessary if you eat the right foods. All fruit and vegetables in very large amounts are laxative. You need to permanently change your diet or you are likely to get colon cancer. Constipation can make you extremely unwell and can lead to colon cancer as it causes a build up of carcinogenic toxins in the system. The intake of foods such as milk, cheese, white rice, white flour and red meat should be restricted, because they tend to contribute to constipation. Any food that has had the fiber stripped out, the nutrients processed out or slows down the digestion is a constipation culprit. Here's a list of foods shown to cause constipation problems: •Meats, especially fatty meats, red meat and processed meats, •Dairy Products, such as cheese, ice cream and whole milk, •Fast Foods – burgers, French fries and other fried foods, pizza, etc., •Refined grains, like white rice or any refined white flour products, •Highly starchy foods – white potatoes, corn and all refined grains, •Pastries and other high sugar products, such as cakes, cookies and pies, •Deep-fried foods, chips and other foods that are high in bad fats. You can see lots more in http://au.search.yahoo.com/search?p=%22n... which tells you "Natural Ways to Relieve Constipation" and the right foods to eat.

It sounds as though your meal plan is very healthy and you are getting nutrients from all the neccesary food groups. If you work out, you may want to try eating a small healthy snack, such as a granola bar, before. This will give you an extra boost of energy and help you preform your best. Just be sure you are getting the neccesary amount of calories each day. You can determine how many calories you need daily by talking to your doctor, or going on mypyramid.gov and clicking on "My Pyramid Plan" on the right side of the screen. Here, you can also get an estimate on how many servings of each food group you should get each day. Just remember, if you are ever hungry during the day, eating a small, healthy snack is ok. I hope I helped!
