That looks good Mike. Add in about 20-25% of your calories from fats, and adjust your carbs as needed.

My general recommendation is 30-40 grams of fat every 2.5 to 3 hours. For most naturals, as long as you are in this ballpark, you're in a good place. After protein, fat intake stays fairly consistent, so it will be the carbs you will need to dial in to keep the fat off.

I like the look of the program. best of luck.
